Louisiana has a unique mix of African, American, and French Cultures. There aren’t many states that can compete with the vibrant history and the heartfelt soul of the Pelikan State. It doesn’t stand back when it comes to natural beauty, with wetlands of thriving ecosystems home to raccoons, alligators, and deer.
Louisiana is in the south-east of the Gulf of Mexico, and it’s become one of the favored destinations for RVers. Here are ATVA Online’s four of the top RV campgrounds that’ll put you in touch with Louisiana’s heartbeat.
Reunion Lake RV Resort, Ponchatoula
When it comes to amenities, it’ll be difficult to beat this RV park. It has two pools, an outdoor amphitheater, kayaking and paddleboarding on the river, and an obstacle course in the lake. The adults can retire in the evening to the adults-only pool and enjoy a cocktail or two. PS. Own a generator but not sure how to start it? Check out our step by step guide here.
The 228 RV sites have full hookups with 30 and 50 amp service and a choice of pull-through or back-up stands. It’s a gated resort, and day tours aren’t permitted, but, they do have an option to try out the facilities before buying. The restrooms and all the amenities are top quality and spotless.
Some of the area’s attractions are Kliebert’s Alligator and Turtle Farm, Tangipahoa African American Heritage Museum, the Joyce Wildlife Management Area, the Gnarly Barley or the Louisiana Breweries, the Southern Swamps Byway, and the Ponchatoula Antique Stores.
Frog City RV Park, Duson
Frog City is accessible for people with handicaps, and everyone can enjoy the ample facilities. It has 62 RV stands, both back-up and pull-through. The park is quiet, with spotless showers situated close to the I-10 and on Lafayette’s doorstep.
The park has a swimming pool, paved roads, large RV sites, and free cable TV. The casino is a short walk away for a night out, or drive into Lafayette and enjoy the restaurants and nightlife.
Things to do in the area are swamp tours or visit the island that’s home to the famous Tobasco sauce. The Arcadian and the Vermillionville historic village are worth visiting, as is the
Evangeline State Park and the Saint Martin de Tours Catholic Church.
Cajun Palms RV Resort, Henderson
This family-orientated resort is clean and safe with friendly and helpful staff. The children will love the kiddie pool, the video arcade, and the theatre. The adults can work out or have a refreshing sundowner at the swim-up bar.
Cajun Palms has over 300 full hookup RV sites with 30 and 50 amp service and pull-through and back-up stands, and a convenience store.
The Clark County Heritage Museum displays locomotives and historic homes, take a Whiskey or an ale tasting tour, marvel at the geology of the Bowl of Fire, and visit the Hoover Dam or Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Jude Travel Park of New Orleans, New Orleans
This park is only five miles from the French Quarter of New Orleans and within easy distance of the Superdome, the Convention Center, or the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. You can also organize a city or a swamp tour, a boat cruise, and the staff will help you with your itinerary and make all the bookings for you.
The facilities include a saltwater pool, a hot tub, WiFi, and cable TV. The RV sites have full hookups with 30 and 50 amp service and both pull-through and back-in sites. Pets are welcome.
New Orleans is the home of jazz music, cajun cuisine, and the Mardi Gras. Situated along the Mississippi River are the Natchez steamboat and horse-drawn carriages waiting to take you on tour. Apart from the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, there’s the fashionable Warehouse District or the upmarket Garden District.
There’s no better way to experience the many exciting things to do in Louisiana, also known as the Bayou State, than taking a road trip in an RV. Louisiana has it all, from the many flea markets to the vibrant exotic Mardi Gras or the wild swamp tours to cultural cuisine.
When you plan your next RV excursion, make sure it includes Louisiana for a fun-filled action-packed holiday.
