Kincaid Lake Recreation Area, LA
« on: February 17, 2019, 05:24:38 pm »
I  posted this on another site, but would also like some Phoenix Cruiser input.
Anyone familiar with this camp area? On Campground Reviews it's known as Kincaid Lake Campground A. Just outside of Alexandria, LA. It got good reviews on a couple of sites, but none can give accurate GPS coordinates, nor address. Recreation.gov gives a lat & long in the lake. Other show a vague mark in the forest.
Investigating with google maps/earth shows a boat launch and a primitive campground, where the review sites state full electric, showers, plumbed restrooms, etc.
Sure like to find it, but I'm lost. Any and all help would be appreciated.
Bob is what we call our PC 2100, and he has taken us from campers to RV'ers and loving it.

Thanks dogyard. I did manage to find some decent coordinates for the GPS by digging through a ton of camping forum websites and eventually on Facebook, which I hate to admit, and found a close enough starting point. From there I used Google Earth and zoomed in enough to see some RVs and from there follow the openings in the trees to the main road. We'll find out in a couple of weeks how good I did.

Write down good notes in case you have no signal when you need clarification most. We've made notes, saved Web pages for offline reading, took screen shots and saved them, and even took pics of the screen with our cell phones to keep the data we need in case all systems are unavailable at a critical moment.
