Featuring improved RV sites, some with an extra tent camping pad, Palmetto Island Campground is a fine choice to explore the waters of the Vermilion River. Overnight guests may choose to stay in vacation cabins nestled amongst the trees. These cabins come complete with a full kitchen, bathroom, and screened in porch. It’s the perfect time to kick back in a rocking chair with some sweet tea, and listen to the crickets and frogs crank out their latest opus.

Awesome primitive camping at the backpacking sights! We loved the setting and the abundant wildlife, not to mention the friendly staff. Definitely recommended for campers looking for a little adventure along with their fresh air.

The park was beautiful and, as most Louisiana parks do, offers free laundry. The night got exciting when we saw an ARMADILLO! (Not something New Jersey locals are used to seeing every day!)
