Toledo Bend is an amazing area to visit if you are a nature lover. Short of a fly in trip to Canada I have not seen wildlife in the variety and abundance that I do here. The staff are friendly and dedicated to making your visit enjoyable. Unfortunately the campground has no access to the internet nor cell phone reception. This means that emergency phone calls or finding medical contacts is impossible unless you drive 10 miles to the closest town. Wireless access to the internet would allow most smart phones access for video calling to loved ones. It would allow Seniors such as myself to locate local medical information when issues arise from prescriptions. Simply knowing what the weather will be like in detail before going out on a lake known for being treacherous when the wind blows would be a huge plus the internet would provide. Not having access to the internet is now considered a standard for judging an area impoverished. The staff at the camp have been desperately trying to get the approvals for installing wireless access for their camp but it seems like getting the proper approvals has been impossible. A new quarter of a million dollar dock system did get approved when the old one is still viable.
Nice campground. Other RVer's were very nice. Staff was helpful. Too far to base to make trip economical if you don't need much at comm/exchange. It seems to be mostly for people that like fishing. Met three couples that came there every year to catch their limit and stock freezers that had brought with them. Over all not a bad place. Be careful in town on Hwy 171. Local police have speed trap. I was caught, paid fine instead of hanging around or returning for court date, sometime in April. Apparently it was never reported because it did not show up on my insurance renewal. Woman in site beside me got caught the same day, by the same cop, in the same place.
