NATCHITOCHES PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

 People now have a new park to enjoy in Natchitoches Parish.

 On Tuesday, the Red River Waterway Commission opened the Grand Ecore RV Park, 1071 Tauzin Island Road.

The park took 2 years to build and cost $4 million.

Eric Gilmore, the Marketing Director of the Red River Waterway Commission, said the park probably would have opened sooner if the Red River did not flood.

The fully gated venue has 59 RV sites, including 24 pull-throughs and 35 back-ins.

Each site has a concrete pad and includes water, sewer and electricity.

There also is an activity center with a full kitchen and a bathhouse with 12 individual restrooms and showers.

Gilmore said the gem of the park is the activity center.

"We have seating for a 100 [people] for a meal or it can even larger for a meeting with a  capacity up to 232," he said.

And there is high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the park.

Gilmore said since Natchitoches is a tourism town, it needed an RV park like this.

"There are very few service RV parks like this with concrete pads and the amenities like our activity center and our play ground. This [park] is for the whole family," said Gilmore.

The park is just minutes from downtown Natchitoches. To get there, travel east of Natchitoches on Louisiana Highway 6.

Turn left at the Corps of Engineers Welcome Center on Tauzin Island Road. This is before you get to Grand Ecore bridge at Red River.

Hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To learn more or to make reservations, contact the park by calling (318) 238-7446 or sending email to info@grandecorervpark.com.

The price of an RV site is $40 a night.
