This local park has so much to offer both area residents and visitors. There's fishing, walking/hiking, geocaching, swimming (seasonal), picnic areas, age-appropriate playgrounds, and biking for the novice and well as competitive trail-bikers!

We actually choose this place as it was the closest campsite to West Monroe that was nice looking and cheap. We took our two daughters to see the water parade for Christmas and visit the Duck Dynasty warehouse. We had so much fun in West Monroe. But the beautiful Lincoln Parish Park was an amazing campsite! Picture perfect! I wish... More

We camped for 3 nights over Thanksgiving this year in tent site 44. Big quiet private site and perfect for our family. Near the comfort station. Easy access to the lake and bike trails. Bring something to hold water; there is no water at the site. Great place to camp with other families. We spent an afternoon exploring the beginner... More

We hiked the 6 mile hike this trip. Very well marked. Last time we had done the 1 1/2 mile walk around the lake. There is also a 12 mile hike. The trails are also bike friendly. This park also has an RV section and great playground. There is a small beach area. Beautiful park with lots to do.

Nice Campground with lake and paved walkway around it. Playground for the kids and beach area. Plenty of fishing and not too far from town. Very affordable weekend

Great place to visit for the day or camp out over a weekend. Located around a large lake/pond. 1-1/4 mile paved pathway winds around perimeter of the lake great for walking running or fishing. 10 mile world class mtb trail that is also great for hiking winds through the woods (shorter trails also available). Many spots to stop and rest... More

Wonderfully beautiful....saw big snake, however. .then would not walk the trails or let the dog down. But snakes are expected in a water area park. Would definitely stay there again.

I've been here several time for meetings. We've used the enclosed pavilion and enjoy the ability to go outside as well as be indoors if the weather goes bad. The area is aesthetically pleasing and there is always plenty of parking.
