Officials say about 50 percent of the 500 plus residents told to evacuate Doyline have done so.
Evacuees at Camp Caney are making the best out of a bad situation by passing the time playing games or enjoying the outdoors.
Doyline resident Mayra Reyes is staying in a cabin with 9 members of her family.
"We woke up scared. Like what is happening. I felt the house shaking. We got scared. We didn't know what was happening until after the next day."
What Reyes felt was the the Camp Minden explosion that led investigators to the improperly stored gunpowder's discovery.
She says her family had no clue what was being kept near their home in the first place.
Even with the cleanup, she says her family is worried about future incidents.
"We have our concerns. We're a little worried about the future. We don't want it to happen in the future. We're worried. We have kids living there. We have a couple of years living."
Worries or not, Reyes says the evacuee camp will make an enjoyable stay.
"It's pretty. It's pretty. We're going to enjoy here. Yeah it's nice."
The Lake Bistineau shelter is housing a family of two at the RV camp.
Camp Caney has 100 beds and will be providing lunch and dinner for evacuees.
The camp also housed Katrina victims back in 2005.
