Ponchatoula La

We are planning a trip in the very near future to Ponchatoula La. I have it all under control and mapped out until I get past Shreveport. My plan is to get off I 20 at Rayville La. and go south on 425 To Natchez,Ms.Then take 61 over to 98 and southeast over to I 55. 425 appears to be mostly 4 lane.Any and all pointers and suggestions are solicited and welcome.Thanks ..

Are you specifically wanting a more scenic route by doing this...as it is faster to take I-20 over to Jackson MS and then take I-55 south. This is how I go to New Orleans via Ponchatoula.

I live near Rayville. You have to really watch out for Mangham and Baskin, which are south of rayville and north of winnsboro. They are infamous speed traps

When you reach Pines Rd. In Shreveport, do the camper a favor and take the I220 exit. Its still rough but not nearly as as bad as I 20 thru Shreveport. If you take this route, just past Pines Rd, get into next to far right lane.
There are 4 truck stops at first two exits past state line with easy on/off.

There is a KOA on west side of Shreveport. Very easy access. Coming from TX, exit Industrial drive, turn right to first right then left at light. KOA will be on left about 1 mile or so.
Going back to Tx, exit Pines Rd. Left at light. Continue to 3d light. Turn right. KOA about mile on right.
