Pristinely quiet RV camping and the sound of birds happily chirping go hand in hand; at Tickfaw Campground, located in Tickfaw State Park, you'll find campsites nestled amongst the pine and hardwood trees that make up the park. The tree stands, and the Tickfaw River are the reasons why birds and other wildlife venture close. While camping at Tickfaw Campground, guests will have access to boat rentals they can take out on the river, and there are several hiking trails that are short to moderate in length. Kids will enjoy the water playground, and adults can make the most of the opportunity to observe various bird species in their natural habitats.The campsites at Tickfaw State Park have either electrical and water hookups or water only hookups, and some cabins and pavilions can be rented if you are with a larger group. The park has a nature center where you can view exhibits explaining the ecosystems that exist here; the center also has a large aquarium stocked with fish taken directly from the Tickfaw River. The park roadways are an ideal place to bicycle or go inline skating. Remember to take your rental RV for a spin on the local highways; driving an RV is just one of the unique features of a motorhome camping vacation, and it's one that you don't want to miss.

Camping with an RV

Camping with an RV

Have you ever wanted to sleep at the foot of a mountain or wake up to the sound of the ocean’s waves gently crashing on the shore? When on a road trip, do you like to stop at every weird and wonderful roadside attraction? Do you ever just want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get out into the great outdoors? Then renting an RV is definitely for you.

Camping in an RV allows you to adventure on your terms. Whether you’re looking to bond over an open fire with family and friends or you just want to get away for a while, there’s no better way to do it than from behind the wheel of an RV.

The Great Outdoors

Book an RV in Livingston Parish, and you are on your way to a vacation that most people can only dream about. Once you have picked up your Springfield RV rental and the initial thrill has worn off, jump behind the wheel and take it for a spin. Make your first destination Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Area near LaPlace, a multi-use natural refuge that provides habitat for local wildlife, hunting and fishing opportunities, and nature and wildlife observation. There is a short trail that you can use for hiking, but if you hope to see the wildlife, you might be better off observing from a boat on the open water as the area is almost exclusively swamp.Joyce Wildlife Management Area is a combination of cypress-tupelo swamp and shrub marsh, with a variety of tree species on hand. It's a popular destination for bird and wildlife observation; as a result, park managers have created an elevated “Swamp Walk” boardwalk that can ferry you through the swamp areas. One of the wildlife species you'll observe if you're lucky is the alligators that are iconic to Louisiana. Fishing and boating are allowed, and you can hunt for white-tailed deer, waterfowl, rabbit, and squirrel.Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge is a combination of freshwater and brackish marshes, lagoons, coastal hardwood forests, and natural bayous that have created a distinct blend of ecosystems that support more than 300 different bird species annually. In other words, it is a bird watcher's haven. The park is also home to white-tailed deer, great blue heron, American alligators, and other species; the alligators are known to roar loudly during the mating season despite not having any vocal cords. There is an interpretive trail that works its way through the bottomland forests and wetlands, with informational signs posted ever so often, making this the perfect place not only to observe but also learn.

Exploring The Area

No trip to Louisiana is complete without experiencing at least some of its culture, and Hammond is a good place to begin this part of your journey and experience. There are art galleries and theaters if you have an interest in the arts, and casinos if you prefer more excitement to your activities. You can check out the sports and entertainment bars or take a hands-on sports fishing charter for some true Louisiana-style fishing. You might even want to wander into the Visitors Center to inquire further about what's on hand and gather personal recommendations from those who are familiar with the city. The same could be said about making dinner plans, but sometimes the best meals are the unexpected ones. Hammond has a large pool of restaurants on hand, so be prepared to make some difficult choices.Reserve is a medium to small-sized town with some interesting accomplishments, such as having some of its landmark buildings listed as historically important (at the state and federal levels). The town has a varied assortment of restaurants on hand for you to try, but this is Louisiana; your best bet is to track down some venues that serve either seafood or Cajun cuisine (a combination of the two would be perfect), choose one and prepare yourself for a gourmet meal.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
