Santosha is located on a private property in Youngsville, Louisiana. Just minutes from bike lane and the beautiful City of Youngsville. Located in the heart of Acadiana. All proceeds from camping at Santosha go towards the Acadiana Wildlife Bird of Prey Rescue also located on this beautiful five acre property. 

“The area of Lafayette, Louisiana is at the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole Country, an area known as the ‘Happiest City in America’. The rich cultural history, the tasty culinary scene and the distinctive Cajun and Zydeco music are all part of the cultural legacy created by the diverse people who settled here — Acadian, Creole, French, African, Spanish, Italian and Native Americans. It’s an area where the Cajun dialect is still spoken.

Visit Eunice and Opelousas for the Zydeco music, and Breaux Bridge for the crawfish. Head to St. Martinville (one of Louisiana's oldest towns and historically significant to the Acadian legacy) to see the beautiful architecture and buildings, many of which are listed on the historic register. Visit museums, antique markets, plantations, and historic churches. You must try the region’s famous boudin (sausage), dance to live music and visit one of the many festivals happening year-round such as Festival International de Louisiane, the Sweet Dough Pie Festival or Courir de Mardi Gras.

Once you’ve had your fill of crawfish, sweet dough pies, cracklins, étouffée and catfish, head into the boundless wonders of the Atchafalaya Basin, the largest river swamp, containing almost one million acres of swamps, bayous, and backwater lakes. Learn more about the Lafayette area's restaurants and food. Start planning your trip." -- from Louisiana Travel

We had the best time at Santosha! The host was amazing. She was not only SUPER kind, but took care of injured birds. She showed us the birds she had currently, and even let us watch her release an own in the morning! It was an amazing experience. The lot was great. It was in the back of her home and super secluded. Mojo (our dog) was able to run around and enjoy the area. It was very quiet and safe. We would 100% come and stay here again! Highly suggested.

We had a lovely night here at this spot. It was perfect for us and our dogs...they had enough room to run after a long day in the car. Quiet. Private. The host was lovely and also left us to enjoy our night.

Definitely can find some privacyGetting ready for a relaxing night Lots of space to roamOne of our pups welcoming the morning views
