Just off the Gulf of Mexico sits a peculiar, transfixing land mass. A body of terrafirma that serves as both a breakwater and scenic getaway for the everyday outdoorsman (or woman). And Grand Isle Campground is situated within such a body of topsoil. Home to a myriad of campsites, family-friendly and otherwise, the area’s known to be a favorite amongst birdwatchers, toting a vase species profile of residential and migratory avians; Grand Isle Campground also is snaked by a two-mile-plus hiking trials, combining much of the area’s well-manicured shorelines.

It's the Gulf- keep that in mind and you'll have a great time. Definitely bring an arsenal of mosquito spray and keep your fire going for smoke protection. Also, be aware that the shrimp boats will make noise until about 3AM. Other than those two caveats, Grand Isle is a beautiful place- especially if you like to bird watch.

Grand Isle is the only inhabited barrier island in Louisiana and has about 1,300 year-round residents. During my visit in early April I basically had my own private beach. This is because the island is actually a world class fishing and birding destination; not a beach destination. The campground is frequented by fishermen and fisherwomen.
