My family and I stayed at this park for two months while we moved. It is a beautiful park that is set up really well. The sites have full hookups. They are paved and level. The lake, pier, and beach are great. There is a playground and fish cleaning station. The staff is friendly. The only reason that I give this campground a 9 is because the site we had was on a hill and mud washed over our pad during a hard rain. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We chose this park because it was near a family reunion that we would be attending and ended up falling in love with this park and will stay here again! They had the nicest swimming "beach", fishing pier and pavilion area that I have ever seen. Another neat thing that they offered was church services on Sunday morning at the pavilion! Can it get any better than that? We stayed right on the water and enjoyed great sunsets each night! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in a very nice setting. It is right on Toledo Bend. The sites closest to the lakes great. Hilly terrain. The spots are super spacious. Bathrooms were not very clean. There is no pool, but there is a beach area. There are a couple of really nice piers to fish off. The playground is very nice and all of the equipment is new. The playground and beach are about 1/4 to 1/2 mile from the campsites. Besides the bathrooms not being very clean, the main problem that I saw is that there were several inmates (trustees) keeping up the grounds during the day (cutting grass, picking up trash, etc.). They were all polite, but I felt uneasy when the kids wandered too far from the camper. If it were not for this, I would have rated the campground higher. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Private campground attached to beautiful gardens( 70 acres)and a private lake(225 acres). Fishing and swimming at the lake. Cabins available as well. Tent campimg in wilderness area only. 10 miles of hiking trails. We camped here in a camper.
About the only good part of this park is the friendly couple that greeted us (after waiting 45 minutes for them to get back from lunch). The roads are a challenge, the sites (those that aren't permanently occupied) are on slopes, the washrooms were left open to the elements so basically unusable in the near freezing weather. Rate is AOR and they accept cash only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The best thing we can say about Southern Leisure is the friendliness and charm of the host couple. From there everything goes downhill. The campground physically is challenging from the broken roads leading to and within the park to the slanted sites available. I think we finally found the one somewhat level site after spending our first night in a tilted site with our pull vehicle still attached. Maneuvering around the campground in the dark was challenging. Unfortunately we arrived in pouring rain around sunset. Not knowing the roads in the campground and without a site map, we ended up on a hill on a rutted dirt road. Thank heaven we had the foresight to purchase a 4WD tow vehicle. If you are up to a challenge, then Southern Leisure is the campground for you. And, for an extra level of difficulty, make sure you arrive in the dark during a downpour. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park looks to have been a fairly nice property years ago, but has been left to deteriorate. Memberships have been sold throughout the years, so some folks are trying to get their money's worth and either live or keep their rigs stored on campsites. Poor choice if you're looking for a decent park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
