You can check it out in many different ways whether it's by traditional hiking and nature viewing across the trails, kayaking along the river, or checking for tracks as you hunt around the area.You could also try a trip over to White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area which can be found in Gueydan. Nearly 72,000 acres await there with a mix of wetlands, croplands, woodlands, and marshes to explore, with camping areas available so you can take your time and get your fill. If you are interested in fishing here, you could hook catches like largemouth bass, blue catfish, and crappie. You could also stick to the trail areas where you can spot a variety of avian species and more with information kiosks to get you prepped to explore.Another great area for viewing the wildlife of Louisiana is Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge in Grand Chenier right by the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Some trapping is allowed, and you can certainly find a wide variety of fish and shellfish when you are boating around the area. The wildlife, however, is what makes this place really shine.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
