Generally speaking Marksville is a nice place to visit. Just be aware of the city police (thugs with badges). During one of my visits to this town I received a traffic ticket for disobeying a traffic light. The light was green as I entered the intersection, and emergency vehicle (ambulance) emerged from and side street, traffic immediately stopped (as it should) and I was caught in the intersection. When traffic started moving again the light was yellow. The thug sitting in a police car at the intersection pulled me over and wrote a ticket for going through the light. According to him the light turned red before my vehicle cleared the intersection.
The people in Marksville are generally very friendly, just want tourist to be aware some of the people they have wearing badges are either out to make a name for themselves or trying to extort money from tourist. (The guy came check my license to see if I was from the area before returning to his car to get his ticket book).
