Where you can get a dose a Creole culture and Mother Nature
Camping near New Orleans provides a break from the evenings spent soaking up all live music and Creole culture that lines Bourbon Street. Stay near the comfortable amenities of downtown New Orleans by staying at properties near Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Area. Airboat tours of the surrounding marshlands can be easily booked, allowing you to (safely) approach large American alligators. Bird watchers can enjoy looking out from outposts to view wading birds at Biloxi Wildlife Management Area, Salvador Wildlife Management Area, and Jeanne Liffit National Historic Park. Rustic campgrounds exist North and South of New Orleans, with a few bookable farmsteads scattered throughout the region.
Boating, kayaking, and canoeing opportunities can be found along Mississippi River, as well as the four major lakes in New Orleans, including Lake Pontchartrain, New Orleans largest. And What better way is there to burn off all those beignets than to hike, paddle, or bike your way through New Orleans picturesque landscapes?
