LSF 2002 Update
by: Jeff Southworth

Update: Location of LSF ’02 has been changed to Lazarre Point recreation area in West Monroe; the dates are still April 25-28. Lazarre Point is about 14 miles south of Moon Lake. From Lazarre Point boat dock there is 35 miles of uninhabited water going south, which makes for miles of water for everyone to ride on.

Directions to the sight are as follows: Off of I-20 coming from Texas, take the 5th Street exit and turn right, go to the stop sign at the T and turn left, go to the next stop sign and turn right into Lazarre Point Recreation area.

Off of I-20 coming from the Mississippi, take the 5th Street exit after crossing the river, turn left, then go to the stop sign at the T and turn left, go to the next stop sign and turn right into Lazarre Point Recreation area.

Once on site, there is a boat ramp to launch at. All the activities and camping will be to the south of the ramp.

Competition Format

The competition format has been set; competitors will leave the dock and hit the Kicker then get a Double Up. If a competitor falls off the Kicker they will be picked up and still get a Double Up. First place prize money of $2,000.00 is up for grabs; prizes will be given to everyone that enters the competition. Entry fees for the competition will be $40.00 per competitor with a limit of 30 competitors, so if you want to enter the competition you can pre-register by sending check or money order to: LSF’02 Competition, 1120 Horseshoe Lake Rd., Monroe, LA 71203.

In talking with our local Wildlife and Fisheries agents over the past summer, they have given me some recommendations that will save everyone some heartache, including all of us that love to ride and the local houseboat owners. They have asked that I pass on to everyone to be respectful of the houseboat owners along the river. If you happen to pass by a houseboat docked along side the river try to pass on the opposite side of the river, in the areas where there are several houseboats together, or on both sides of the river those are No-Wake zones. If you want to avoid the houseboats, when leaving the boat dock at Lazarre Point you can head south on the river, there is 35 miles of uninhibited water to ride in. If you head North from Lazarre Point you will run into a few No Wake zones before you get to a good riding area.


Because of the site move for LSF ’02 I have found a few motels that are a little more convenient to Lazarre Point. The new motels are all off the Thomas Road Exit in West Monroe. Close to these Motels are also several eating-places such as the Outback, Lone Star, Chilis, Bennigans, El Chico, Cracker Barrel, Hooters and all the favorite fast food places. Also they all have adequate boat parking as well.

Best Western, Thomas Rd. West Monroe, (318) 345-4000 has rooms available for 62.96. Rooms have two queen beds, refrigerator and coffee makers. Be sure to mention LSF if you going to stay here.

Red Roof Inn Constitution Dr, West Monroe, (318) 388-2420 has rooms from 35.99-54.99 depending on number of people in the room. This motel is right across from the Best Western.

Fairfield Inn, Constitution Dr, West Monroe, (318) 388-3810 has rooms for 64.00. The Fairfield is right between Hooters and the Cracker Barrel, Chili’s and the Outback.

A couple more motels I did not call but are in the same area: Shoney’s Inn (318) 325-5780 – Baymont Inn (318) 387-2711.

Camping and RV’s

There will be camping and RV space available on site at Lazarre Point on the 25th, 26th and 27th. The cost is a flat rate for all three nights of $20.00 per tent or $30.00 per camper or RV. There is not any RV hookups or power connections for the RV’s. The site has bathrooms but no showers. The cost is to help pay for the security on site.

I am currently working on local RV rentals and will release any information as soon as I get it.
