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.
Unfortunately, just before our stay, Damon's property was severely flooded from storm surge in the local river. Damon was quick to let us know the situation, and was very understanding if we wanted to change our plans. Luckily, his property drained quickly and we were able to find a nice dry piece of land to camp for the night. Our host's dogs were very friendly, as were the neighbors we met. There was plenty of dry wood around for our campfire too. This is not a glamping resort; but if you are comfortable finding and setting up your camp it's a great place for some bayou hospitality.
