The I’m on Vacation Retreat is a Lodge + RV park tucked at the edge of the world in Shell Beach, LA. When you are in the middle of the expansive marsh, you would never know you are only 30 miles from the New Orleans French Quarter and 20 miles from Chalmette. Home of commercial shrimpers and oystermen, and the BEST INSHORE FISHING IN THE COUNTRY. Epic sunrises. Breathtaking sunsets. TROUT. REDFISH. Everything you didn’t know you needed. Take your pick on how you want to get away. Will you bring your own RV to one of our 21 Pad Sites? Or, will you rent the Pelican Perch Lodge? No matter how you want to get away, our cozy retreat will be the perfect home-base for experiencing South Louisiana’s marsh. And, once you arrive, you’ll know, this must be the place.

I'm on Vacation-RV + Camper Retreat
Loved the location and the beautiful sunrises. It is a bit of a ride to New Orleans and to get to the grocery store, but we were forewarned of this. Perfect location for an avid fisherman.

Quiet Campground w/ responsive host
The “I’m on vacation “ rv retreat is a small RV campground. We used it as a home base for traveling to New Orleans as it’s about 45 min away from all the NOLA things and it served us well. Margaret was super responsive during our stay and quick to address a small issue we had while there. There was a pleasant breeze while we were there which was nice, but, just a note, there is no shade or greenery so you will need to use the electric to control the temp in your camper in the hot months. I think this spot would be ideal if you were interested in fishing.

Very attentive host.
The hosts where very attentive to our needs. Very generous with their time, they helped in solving any problems or answering any question we could have so that we could have a great stay. It’s not the perfect spot for sunset but it is for sunrise. If you like to party there is a place for that not to far away from the camp, on the other side of the street. The other people staying here where mostly workers, quiet people. We where unlucky in a way that we experienced a late arrived neighbour which woke us up at 1 am with noise of installing himself. Overall, like I said in intro is host are trying their best to make their visiters needs to be fullfield and happy.
