Louisiana RV Facilities
The distinctive culture of Louisiana is something that everyone in the United States, even the world, has heard about. From the delicious Cajun and Creole cooking and their French-American culture, to the many stories about the Bayou and its alligators - Louisiana is filled with exciting activities to explore and enjoy. Although New Orleans was devastated by hurricane Katrina, the city has started to rebuild, and along with the rebuilding comes a restoration of the culture inherent here. A visit to Louisiana in your recreational vehicle is a trip that shouldn't be missed.
One area in Louisiana that is worth seeing is Baton Rouge. This old fashioned Southern city is full of its own charm and offers visitors a mix of both old and new customs and attractions. Baton Rouge is the capital city of Louisiana, and surrounding this area are many different Louisiana RV facilities that are open for your stay year round. One of these is the Farr Park RV, located at the BREC Horse Activity Center. BREC is the park and recreation facilities management office of Baton Rouge, and this publicly owned area offers visitors an interesting (and central) place to park their RV.
If you are planning to stay further to the south, in the areas near New Orleans, be sure to call ahead before deciding on where to stay. Many sites and facilities were damaged by the hurricane, so even if you have been to a place before, it may not still be in operation. Check websites and call for reservations in order to clear your stay before arriving. Some Louisiana RV facilities may still exist, but be operating under new names or with differing levels of amenities, so it pays to do your research.
The town of Golden Meadow, Louisiana, is located in Lafourche Parish, which is right next to New Orleans. This is a good area to look at for your stay in the Greater New Orleans area. The Bayou Resorts facility, located in Golden Meadow, is open for business and can accommodate your RV needs. This RV park has 40 paved RV sites for your use, all with full water and electric (30 or 50 AMP) hookups. There is also a bath house, laundry facility, fishing area and cable TV available at this site.
Staying in Louisiana may not be the same experience as it was before hurricane Katrina hit, but there are still many different areas and hidden treasures throughout the state that are not to be missed. An RV trip to Louisiana will definitely be a rewarding experience.
