Horse Shoe Bend Amite River Camp
3 units · Motorhomes, Tents2 acres · Baton Rouge, LouisianaAt the corporate retreat, we live a recreational-type lifestyle. That doesn't mean we don't work hard...We ride ATVs, fish, work on the property and enjoy our solitude and privacy. Peace, tranquility, privacy, and a safe environment for your stay are a priority. Cox Cable internet/wifi is available for free. The water here is from a deep well. Feel free to take a jug of it with you. You won't find a more delicious water source that is unfiltered, untreated by any chemicals or tampered with in any way. It is neither hard nor soft and has no odor. I have personally been nourishing my body with it for over 6 years now.

All camping options

Look beyond the Cajun flavor of New Orleans to see a whole new, wild Louisiana. With its dense forests, beautiful Gulf wilderness, and winding waterways begging to be paddled, this Southern state is a paradise for off-the-grid exploration.

Start your Louisiana adventure in one of 22 state parks or 30 recreation areas. In the north, you find calm bayous and cypress groves. To the south, a coastal region with sandy beaches hugs the Gulf of Mexico. Most of Louisiana's state parks offer wilderness cabins and tent camping, but you can also find plenty of RV parks and private Louisiana campgrounds along lakes, rivers, and bayous.

You don't have to venture far from the city to connect with nature. Spend the night at a waterfront cabin in Bayou Segnette, a mere 30-minute drive from New Orleans. From Baton Rouge, canoe or kayak the mighty Mississippi.

Grand Isle State Park is a hot spot to camp on the beach or fish for speckled trout in the surf. On the state's western border, South Toledo Bend State Park puts a sprawling reservoir at your fingertips. Enjoy a boat ride, or explore the hiking and biking trails onshore.

At the heart of Louisiana, you find Kisatchie National Forest. The popular camping spot features 50 miles of multi-use trails through pines and bald cypress. Don't forget your swimsuit—the Kisatchie Bayou is a great place to take a dip. A little way south, Lake Chicot State Park creates a quiet refuge for canoeing and strolling along nature trails through a beech-magnolia forest. Don't forget your bug spray for the mosquitoes.

Wherever you pitch your tent, you can look forward to mild weather year round. Just remember to bring your rain gear. Louisiana tends to get a lot of rain, especially in the winter. If you want to be on the safe side, you might want to avoid visiting in June through August. It's summer storm season. The dry months of October and November are some of the best months for camping.
