Hello from SE Louisiana

Just purchased our second RV first was a 30' TT had it for 4 years. Now we have a 355QBQ Sandpipper we had a washer and drier installed for when we have to evacuate for hurricanes. We love it. Drove to Ohio to pick it up. Me and the wife made a vacation out of the trip back. Stopping at 4 different campgrounds. We are going to AL in few weeks we cant wait.

Hi Bayou. We are neighbors - sorta. I am on the north shore of the lake, but at least we are both in Louisiana. This is a great place for any RV questions. These guys have bailed me out of every problem I have had.....and my problems are many and varied.
You have found the right place for trading info.

welcome bayou. i have been here less than a week and find it to be a helpful gr as well.
by the way if u have to evacuate again, consider Oak Grove in NE La. they have a campground just south of town that has full hookups (The Lingo Center).

Headed your way

Hey Bayou, Headed to Pensacola for a week at Ft Pickens next month (assuming no hurricanes or oil issues). Had been looking for a stopping point in between and chose Fairview-Riverside State Park. Ever camped there or any other comments? Tks.

Fontainebleau State Park - Google Maps
Is better than Riverside, I think. Riverside is an open field near a river. Fountainebleau is in a forest. It was beaten back badly by Katrina, but is recovering nicely.
It's on Lake Pontchartrain, so you get the lake breezes. And oil is not a problem here. I am about 20 miles east of it.

Fontainebleau State Park does have RV sites. I was miss staking when i said they didn't. I have never been to either but planning to go there and bring my boat. River side has a boat launch on the property which leads into the Lake. The Bogue Chitto State Park just opened in May I hear it is nice and is not far from Riverside. CRT - State Parks this is a list of all our state parks. You cant go wrong with any of these I'm sure. I have been to Fort Pickens it is nice. I am sure they kept the oil off the bay side of the island. Good Luck.
