RV campers have options down on the bayou.
Louisiana is famous for the architecture, music, and cuisine of New Orleans, but outdoor lovers shouldn’t miss the chance to explore more of the state’s natural attractions. From buzzy Baton Rouge, the state’s capital which lies on the Mississippi River, to 22 diverse state parks and the Kisatchie National Forest, Louisiana is a wonderful RV destination. Favorites among RVers include Fairview-Riverside State Park, just 45 minutes from New Orleans; Lake Claiborne State Park, between Shreveport and Monroe; and Grand Isle State Park on the state’s only inhabited barrier island. All offer easy access to water activities, from fishing to boating and kayaking, that help take the heat out of the steamy Louisiana summer (when temperatures are typically in the low 90s). With mild weather from late fall to early spring, Louisiana is perfect for year-round RV adventures.
