Pitch your tent on your choice area next to the muddy Ouachita River on the grounds of an historic french antebellum home plantation in northeast Louisiana. You may fish, boat, swim, etc. Suggested early winter to late spring for camping - Louisiana can be a bit hot and humid in the warmer months. We can wine and dine you at the plantation dinner table with home cooked Louisiana cuisine (optional for an extra cost) & get you liquored up with mint juleps, homemade absinthe, mix drinks, etc. anywhere on the plantation grounds is acceptable to pitch a tent and make a campfire. we can provide wood, & possible minimal electricity to your camp area for now. there is access to water at the greenhouse area, as well as electricity. the greenhouse is a culinary herb farm and nursery, no smoking tobacco near the nursery and greenhouse area.

Breston was a good host with lots of knowledge of his property and the surrounding activities. It was a pleasant surprise to find the public boat launch so nearby, including a great swimming hole and place to picnic. The property has a strong history and sits right along the river. There is a greenhouse and Breston sells his herbs to restaurants in the area (and to you too if you want them). The circle of magnolia trees in between the green house and the plantation home is my suggestion for where you put your tent.

The tent set up is simple primitive camping, with a few different choices around the property. There was a swimming hole at the recreation area as well as a boat launch. Many people fish and water ski on this river.More herbs from Breston's greenhouse The green house was impressive. This part of Louisiana has a huge focus on agriculture.

We LOVED our stay here!! Thanks to Hipcamp, we found Breston's property, and adjusted our road trip course to experience camping at a historic Louisiana plantation. We are so happy that we did! Breston was an amazing host, and tour guide of this property that has been in his family for generations, and the plant nursery that he has been developing there. We had the great fortune to join Breston and his lovely father for a home cooked meal... a traditional Louisiana gumbo.
Our camping spot was private, and beautiful. It was a flat, grassy area that was farmed many years ago. Now surrounded in huge, beautiful trees. A river is a short walk away. We did hear trains pass several times through the night, along tracks that must be fairly nearby. They did not bother us, we were able to fall back asleep quickly. My husband even found them soothing.
Staying at this plantation provided us many wonderful memories, and will stand out as a top experience on our road trip from Florida to Alaska.
