We are planning on driving through Louisiana after staying on Galveston Island in early October. Haven't really picked a route yet, but since we've never camped in Louisiana, wanted to check it off the list.

I looked into Jimmie Davis SP and Poverty Point SP. Any other suggestions? Probably a 2 or 3 night stay, thanks.

WE really liked Palmetto Island. Toured the Tabasco plant and emnoyed the entire area. Beautiful park when we were there. FWIW


Our Phoenix Cruiser 2100, "Bob", has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

It depends on which way you will be crossing Louisiana. But I will mention a couple of the parks where we have stayed. These would be just off I-12, north of New Orleans and east of Baton Rouge:

Fairview/Riverside S.P.
Fountainleau S. P.

We didn't stay at Poverty Point, but we drove thru it. It didn't impress us. We did stay at Jimmie Davis. And that was a nice park. We enjoyed our stay there.

Other nice parks would be: Lake D'Arbonne, Fountainbleau, Chicot, Palmetto Island, and Sam Houston Jones State Parks.

Poverty Point is one of Louisiana's newer state parks with full hookups. Not much shade as trees are young. It's a nice park though

We stayed at Grand Isle State Park in March, 2018. Nice place at the Gulf but not a whole lot else in the area. Never saw a state park with free laundry room before.

Lake Kinkaid is a very nice campground in Kisatchie.
