About Horse Shoe Bend Rive Camp
Some of the last real woods that you can drive to in the parish. You will be camped on a lake front and also the Amite River is across the street (there is boat launch access).There is access to electricity (extension cord) and water and I also have RV hookups (different listing). There is a place to have fires and I will supply you with plenty of wood. Wifi coming soon.
We are ten minutes to Interstate 10, Highland Rd exit in Baton Rouge. We are five minutes to convenience stores.

The vibe at Horse Shoe Bend Rive Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Horse Shoe Bend is a great place to experience southern Louisiana's unique river and bayou-shaped landscape. First, the drive-in to the Baton Rogue-area via the Afatchalaya Basin Bridge is something you can only experience in Louisiana. Do it.
Once you arrive you can camp near the pond next to Damon's stilt cabin or, as we did, near the fire pit at the entrance to the property. The site offers plenty of shade under the massive trees even in July. The lot is situated right next to a pond and a few hundred feet from an Amite River boat launch.
A walk along Horseshoe Bend will give you a tour of the unique architecture that allows residents to live near the wild rivers. Next time we come through we could see ourselves staying the night and then launching our canoe from the Amite landing toward Lake Maurepas and beyond.
