In Louisiana, eight state parks are adapting by expanding their camping and glamping options. Visitors can now rent platform tents supplied by Tentrr. The partnership makes it easier for non-campers, first-timers and glamping enthusiasts to enjoy nature.
Glamping in Louisiana a great winter activity, as the temperatures down south rarely plummet below freezing. Glampers also avoid the summer bugs, and the swamplands take on a new and interesting look. The Tentrr sites are cozy, cost about half of a State Park cabin, and come with a wood floor and porch with wooden Adirondack chairs.
We’ve chosen six enticing sites for your glamping in Louisiana getaway.
Fontainebleau State Park has 10 glampsites. Many are perched right on the lake and all come at the same reasonable price of $85/night. Site D is located on a pond, for a secluded getaway. As with most Louisiana glamping spots, campers are likely to spot egrets and herons, along with a variety of mammal life. This site requires bringing your own bedding and firewood, and there is walk to get there. Close by, glampers will find toilets. Site D gets high ratings because of the gorgeous setting.
Lake D’Arbonne gives campers a chance to explore the 655 acres of swampland. Site F is a six-person perch that overlooks and lovely grove of sunken trees. Like much of Louisiana glamping, the site is secure and dry while the view is watery and romantic. As with all Tentrr sites, you’ll be furnished with a sturdy platform and tent but will need to bring firewood and bedding. Your camp host here, Erik, is a native to LA who can offer great sightseeing tips.
South Toledo Bend is an excellent destination for anyone who loves fishing, boating, mountain biking or off-roading. It’s the only LA state park where you can explore in an off-road vehicle. Site J is located at the southern tip of the reservoir and offers water and forest views. Here, you’ll do Louisiana glamping right with a dome tent that sleeps up to six, queen bed, sun shower, nearby toilet, fire pit, and grill. This park offers a chance to spot bald eagles and there is plenty of additional hiking, with 12 more miles of trails just outside the gates.
Jimmie Davis is located on lovely Caney Lake. Most of the sites here have water views, and we recommend Site A, surrounded by forest but with a spectacular view of the lake. The tent is nestled among hardwoods on typical flat LA swampland. This park is a must-see for birdwatches and offers plenty of gentle trails. As with all Tentrr sites, you’ll have grill and firepit, along with chairs for relaxing on your porch.
Site E at this fabulous Louisiana glamping destination is a double tent that offers enough room for 12 campers. The park itself is a classic Louisiana getaway with fishing, bird-watching, hiking through the forest or just hanging out and enjoying the wildlife. Lake Claiborne has more recreational opportunities than many other state parks in the state, however. Both the #1 and #2 disc golf courses in the state are found here. This glampsite is not on the water but the lake is close by – the big amenity here is plenty of space to stretch out!
At the very tip of the state is an amazing seaside campsite. This State Park has only Tentrr site, so reserve early. Here, for only $85/night for 2 glampers, you’ll have an ocean view. Search for sand dollars on the beach or just take in the sights from a deck chair. Grand Isle takes a bit of driving to get to—but you’ll have an entire beach to yourself. As with all Tentrr sites, you’ll have a grill and firepit but will need to supply your own bedding. This site sleeps 6 campers.
