Payne Lane Farms & Campground

7 sites · RVs8 acres · Rayville, LA
Less than two (2) miles off Interstate 20, just behind "Salvation's Cross" in Rayville, LA... Our home was built by Mr. J. L. and Mrs. Gladys Keys in the 1970's. Mrs. Gladys used to work for my Grandmother at the local ladies dress shop. She and her husband often brought us fresh vegetables they raised on their "little piece of heaven." They had no children and all these years later, their idea of heaven became ours to take care of now. We are so blessed here at Payne Lane Farms. You can safely camp in your travel trailer minutes off of I-20 on our wooded, rural lot minutes from town, convenience stores, food, and even dump stations. The front orchard provides a refuge of shade and privacy while also allowing you to see everything around you. Rayville, Louisiana has great history and heritage and some fun artifacts to explore if you have an adventurous spirit. Good people and family owned businesses if services are needed while enroute-traveling. Welcome! Learn more about this land: Pull thru the front by turning to right of the mail box and not using the driveway! Maybe a little off road, but this is the country and it won’t hurt to just drive thru the yard sometimes. Fresh eggs for sale $3.50 dozen and maybe some fresh vegetables at $3.00 per pound, but ask us as we don't push them. Canning pantry does have inventory for easy meals. Two night max stay. More farm being developed and coming soon! 🍐🍉🍑🍻🐖🐇🐟🐣🐥🐣🐑🐂🫐🍅🥒🌽

About

If unspoiled beauty is the name of your game, you won’t want to miss an adventure at Chemin-A-Haut State Park, where you can pitch your tent on the high rocky bluffs overlooking Bayou Bartholomew. Bring along the kiddos, who will play all day at the playgrounds or in the expansive swimming complex. Kids and adults will enjoy fishing for freshwater fish in Big Slough Lake, hiking on the hard-packed nature trail, or searching for wildlife in the park’s secluded hidden corners.
