I'll be good on height.

I found this newer RV Park in Louisiana: https://polk.armymwr.com/programs/alligator-lake

It seems like a better option than a private park.

It looks good but do you have to be military to use it?
If you really really want to be in the woods there are some Forest Service camps between Ft. Polk and Alexandria.
I've been researching them for a dream of Woodcock hunting there this winter. Don't tell anybody though, I don't need a crowd.

Somehow I looked over that detail. The recreation areas look like good options, I just worry about not having reservations.

Call them and ask if they expect to fill up. Go ahead and make reservations. You can cancel. I cancelled several this summer.
Sandy Creek:

Recreation.gov works good. If you are a senior you can get the discount pass and pay half in most cases. COE is usually cheap to start with. Half of that almost makes RV'ing cheaper than home.

I should have clarified on the reservations. I'm looking at some places in Louisiana that don't take reservations and I plan to go over Thanksgiving. This is one that looks nice, but without reservations: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/kisa...34619&actid=29

I forgot that one. I have looked at it for myself during hunting season.
If a lot of hunters use it over Thanksgiving that could be an issue. I know there are a couple Wildlife management Areas close to there. Maybe call the supervisors office in Pineville to ask if it usually fills up on Thanksgiving. Or, just take a chance on it. If it's full, it's just down the road to the campground at Woodworth.

I took your advice and booked Sandy Creek for 3 days and then Indian Creek for 2 days. I like some of the first come/first serve places, but wanted to have reservations over Thanksgiving.

Good move. I'm thinking Indian Creek might be our next "short trip".
I've got a lot of footprints in the Woodworth area.

Our house was just across the "bay" from Kincaid Lake Rec Area. It's a fairly nice campground, but it's difficult to get to, especially when it rains. Watch out for the alligators in the evening. If you go out in a boat, turn on a spotlight and look for "orange/red marbles" on the waters surface.... Chances are you'll see enough to make your skin crawl if you're in a relatively small boat..... Fishing is pretty good at the old railroad trestle, around the point and about 1/2 mile from the campground.

Gearhead, timberdoodle hunting isn't very good around that area, but there are several "now native coveys of quail"..... If you hunt with a dog, make sure it knows how to avoid snakes. There are bunches of rattlers in the piney woods around Kisatchie.

John..I'm just looking for a right of way to walk down where there "might" be woodcock. It's pretty much under the radar down here. What I read they are popular to hunt up north, then migrate here where they are pretty much ignored. A few folks hunt them in south Louisiana but there is supposed to be huntable numbers from about Alexandria into east Texas. No dog, which makes the odds lower. Browning waterproof snake boots.
