St. Bernard State Park Beside Swamp for a real travel adventure by Bonnie and Bill Neely”

If you are are traveling to New Orleans in an RV, you’ll find a beautiful new campground at St. Bernard State Park. About fifteen miles Southeast of the city in St. Bernard’s Parish off LA Hwy. 39, this park and campground is located at a real swamp area and is so picturesque. The cost is $12 (discounts available), and there is a gate which secures the place after 9 p.m. (Don’t leave without the combination because you cannot get back in.) It is a real adventure to camp here because it is right on the swamp’s edge, so you could encounter an alligator in your yard! There is a very nice swimming pool (for a few dollars extra). Of course, the campground furnishes its own giant mosquitoes too! Call 1-888-677-1400
