17049 State Park Boulevard, Franklinton, LA 70438
Experience one of the most scenic river systems in Louisiana and a diversity of natural habitats at this sprawling state park. Kayaking and tubing are popular activities here, along with swimming and a water playground for the kids. Miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails let you explore the cypress tupelo swamps, forests, and wetland preserves. Boardwalks lead to an accessible viewpoint of unique and delicate sandstone spires at Fricke’s Cave. About 80 big rig friendly premium campsites with water and electric hookups are available between two campgrounds. The Upland RV Area provides sweeping views from atop a bluff, and the Bottomland RV Area has easy access to the water. The well-maintained and comfortable campgrounds allow visitors to enjoy the peace and beauty of the park after a full day of fun outdoor activities.
Admiral Craik Drive, Grand Isle, LA 70358
Located on a breakwater island between the Gulf of Mexico and bayou tributaries of the Mississippi River, Grand Isle State Park is both an impressive and a relaxing place to enjoy the natural beauty of the Gulf Coast. While Grand Isle is a well-known deep-sea fishing destination, the swimming beach, nature trails, observation tower, and piers also provide opportunities for additional activities, from hiking to bird-watching and photography.
The campground features 40 premier pull-through sites, all with partial hookups and enough space for rigs over 40 feet. Two meticulously cleaned restrooms, a dump station, laundry, free WiFi, and decent cell service all make for a comfortable stay. Because of its location in the barrier islands south of New Orleans, Grand Isle is not a convenient overnight stop, but it’s worth planning for a few nights. Note that there is a toll bridge to access the park.
1500 Poverty Point Parkway, Delhi, LA 71232
Just a few miles north of I-20, Poverty Point Reservoir is a convenient overnight stop. It’s worth planning on more than one night, however, to enjoy the spacious and well-kept campground, beautiful surroundings, and nearby Poverty Point World Heritage Indian Park and Museum.
A 2,700-acre lake is the star attraction, popular for fishing, boating, and birding as well as hiking and biking. Beyond the artificial reservoir, nature trails wind along an offshoot of the Bayou Macon to show you another side of the natural landscape.
The park’s campground offers more than 50 sites, almost all of which have full hookups. The rest have partial hookups, and all sites are large, level, and well spread out between the trees and open areas. With clean restrooms, laundry, a playground, and a splash pad, visitors will quickly discover why this is a favorite camping spot among locals.
