    I haven't been to fourchon in 2-3 years. Its sorta out of the way. We just launch the boat in my backyard, and head out to the islands instead.(Timbalier, Last Island, and a few that have no names). That boat ride is shorter than the truck ride to Fourchon.

    Sounds like 99 needs to make friends with Nutriaitch.

    Grad99 - thanks a mil for the pix - they brought back a lot of great memories...

    I was showing the pix to my wife (Cali girl who's never been to Kisatchie)
    and I was going on and on about where the areas were...

    After 25 years, the place still pretty much looks the same...
    ...but the asphalt paths are definitely new...

    PS I ALWAYS had fun with the ladies there...
    ...looks like you had the same idear!!! :thumb: :yelwink2:

    It's almost entirely gravel and dirt roads through there. Oddly enough though, the parking lot at the Kisatche Bayou camp is asphalt and the sidewalks are concrete -- although there's only a sidewalk as far as the first couple of campsites. Basically you drive down about ten miles of gravel and dirt roads to get to the camping site, then come across a nice parking lot. Quite surprising actually. We looked at the rest of the camping areas throughout the park and well, those are truly in the woods. They are just not kept up in any way.

    Sounds identical to how I remembered it except the addition of the concrete and asphalt trails...

    It really is a ways back up in them woods on that gravel road....

    I'm glad you enjoyed one of my old stomping grounds...:thumb:

    Again, thanks for the blast from my past. Those were the days.:)

    Checking into this area now, but coming up empty. Is this just north of St Francisville? Used to go camping with my family there years ago at Audubon Lakes campground? I think.

    Just can't seem to find very much detailed info about specific sites online.

    Well , it's actually in SW Missippi(sp), past a little town named Pinckneyville (there ain't much there).
    I think what you are referring to is the old Bikini Beach.
    Used to go there all the time as a kid, my dad grew up in Jackson and we fished Thompson Creek up there for catfish & perch...

    Here are several links, One compares Tunica Falls to Kisatchie NF!!!!

    Imagine that!

    To get to some of the falls you have to hike in the creek...

    But it is certainly one of the coolest places I ever hiked in the South...

    Good luck!!!!:thumb:

    Did you walk or drive to the top of Mount Scott? I use to camp and rappel there many years ago. Good times.

    We will be going to this campground next. From what I can tell, they have some nice primitive campsites. Also there are a lot of well-maintained nature trails in the area.
