Jimmie Davis State Park Chatham Reviews
Nice option for a sunny Sunday Jul 19, 2009
North Louisiana is not precisely the most exciting place on Earth, alright? And Ruston can be pretty dead on Sundays (specially since they don't sell alcohol), so people usually picnics on parks around the area.
The Jimmie Savis State Park is located approximately at a 45 minutes drive south from Ruston. You can see the directions on the Park Description. The place is nice and clean, and they have grills if you want to make your barbecue (like we did). They also have a small artificial beach if you want to take a little swim in the lake (I didn't do it this time because I am not a fan of sunbasking).
The place is not terribly exciting and the facilities could be a little more complete (if they had some hammocks it would be lovely), but it's a good choice if you are bored in Ruston, and just want to spend a Sunday afternoon with your friends.
