Perched on the east bank of the Red River, Coushatta is a small town and seat of the Red River Parish. It was built on cotton cultivation, with plantations once dotting the landscape, and experienced significant unrest following the Civil War during the Reconstruction era of the United States.
Today, Coushatta is a sleepy town that provides an idyllic place to rent an RV for those wanting to get away from it all. It’s within proximity to wildlife refuges and the Kisatchie National Forest while being just 45 miles from the bustling city of Shreveport, and Bossier City.
Book a camper rental in Coushatta and head northwest to the Bayou Pierre Wildlife Management Area, which provides a refuge for a variety of waterfowl and birdlife. Keep your eyes peeled for sparrows, red-tailed hawks, and American kestrels, as well as scissor-tailed flycatchers that nest here during the summer months. Hunting is also permitted in the open grasslands and hardwood forests, with white-tailed deer, raccoons, squirrels, and rabbits all for the taking.
Alternatively, drive north along the Red River to the Loggy Bayou Wildlife Management Area, a 6,381-acre nature area that protects one of the few remaining bottomland hardwood areas in northwest Louisiana. It’s another popular area for hunting white-tailed deer and waterfowl, as well as archery hunting and trapping. If you’re more into fishing, head to the shores of Loggy Bayou where you can try your luck at luring catfish, bass, and several species of bream.
A short drive east of Coushatta takes you to the immense Kisatchie National Forest near Winnfield, which sprawls across 604,000 acres of longleaf pine and flatwood vegetation. It supports a variety of rare plant and animal species, including wild orchids and carnivorous plants such as the pale pitcher plant and rose pogonia orchid. More than 100 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails traverse the park while canoeing, fishing, and swimming are also permitted in its waterways.
Pick up your RV rental in Coushatta and make the short drive south to the Ajax Country Livin' RV Park, which can accommodate RVs of any size with either 30 or 50-amp services. There’s are on-site laundry and shower facilities, as well as Wi-Fi availability and a private fishing lake.
Alternatively, drive east from Coushatta to the Grand Bayou Resort where you’ll find a selection of deluxe RV sites overlooking the Grand Bayou Reservoir. There’s a white sandy beach where you can go swimming, a large marina and fishing pier, as well as a covered pavilion and an on-site store where you can pick up essentials.
Drive in the other direction, and you’ll arrive at the Glorey RV Park, a family-owned campground in the town of Mansfield. There are 12 lots available with 30 or 50-amp hookups, as well as a hot water bathhouse and laundromat, and pets are welcome to join you.
Alternatively, you can make the 30-minute drive into Mansfield where there’s a Walmart where you may be able to set up for a night or two with the manager’s permission.
