(1) Longleaf Vista in Cenla (Accessed from the Derry/Gorum exit off I-49 (Exit 119) - more info here
(2) Tunica Hills/Clark Creek - its near Mississippi, but you can either access it from Natchez going south or taking LA 1 to New Roads and taking the ferry to St Francisville - more info here

You can take a canoe trip down the Sabine River all the way from the bottom of Toledo Bend to the Gulf of Mexico, down near Orange, TX. Camping on sand bars, fishing for food, doesn't get much better than that. The trip should take about 3 days, but you could easily slow down the pace to make it about 5 days.

Or you could also spend some time in the Caddo Lake area. Very good fishing, and very much in the middle of nowhere.

Another spot is the Ouisko Chitto Creek or also called the Whiskey Chitto. It's a branch of the Calcasieu River in the Allen, Beauregard, Vernon Parish area that should provide some hiking and canoeing opportunities.
