Louisiana RV Campsites

Louisiana RV Campsites
The famous bayous of Louisiana provide excellent opportunities for fishing, but you might not know that there are some nice hilly areas at the top of the state where mountain biking can get pretty wild. Louisiana is the perfect state to take an RV vacation; the state's nickname is Sportsman's Paradise. This means ample opportunity for everything from deep sea fishing in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico to hiking in the Kisatchie National Forest.

Chicago State Park

Near Ville Platte are the 208 RV-only sites at Chico State Park. The entire area is draped by massive beeches and magnolia trees where the Spanish moss creates a very cool, eerie effect as night falls. Lake Chicot offers several facilities for the enjoyment of swimmers and boaters. Other recreation includes hiking trails. This area of the state is much better suited for those arriving in an RV than those looking to rough it out in the tent; come summer, the humidity can become quite unbearable. Spring and fall are really the ideal time to get the full enjoyment of this campground, even for those who will be sleeping inside the comfortable environs of an RV.
