Very quiet and remote. Our site was on the water. No phone service but we did manage to get satellite reception through the trees after several moves of the dish. We camped at Marathon Lake/Bienville NF in a Motorhome.

There are several sites with a good view of the beautiful lake. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and to enjoy some peace and quiet this is the place. Very quiet. There is a trail that runs around the lake that is approximately 1.5 miles long. There are miles of dirt/gravel county roads that are right outside of the campground that are great for bike riding with virtually no traffic. No phone service or TV channels but that was a good thing. The only negative was the bathrooms were not as clean as they should be. We camped at Marathon Lake/Bienville NF in a Travel Trailer.

This is a pristine and typically very quiet National Forest campground. Beautiful fishing lake, sand beach, off the beaten path but paved roads to the c/g. All sites are paved with gravel on adjacent area for table, fire ring and grills. Has 30 & 50 amp service plus water. No sewer but has dump. 6-8 of the sites were long enough for our 35' m/h. The rest are fine for shorter units. Bring everything you need with you! The nearest store ( 12-25 miles away. We camped at Marathon Lake/Bienville NF in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is an outstanding NF campground. Beautiful grounds, paved, level sites that back up right to the lakefront, peaceful and a lake full of bass. I had the lake loop all to myself. The only negatives, which have nothing to do with the park, itself, are the lack of usable Verizon signal and the roller-coaster roads that connect the park to the freeway. I would stay here again and get an out of state fishing license. We camped at Marathon Lake/Bienville NF in a Motorhome.
