Our campground also boasts plenty of outdoor activity potential. Inspired by their pasture views, guests can schedule a trail ride or even a lesson, if time permits. Horse owners can rest easy knowing their horses are nice and comfortable in our Horse Hotel, while unwinding in our campground or enjoying a delicious meal downtown.
There's plenty of room for a game of catch or Frisbee. Often, our guests take advantage of our access to bike trails. The paved and lighted path on the levee provides a scenic backdrop for a walk or bike ride. Guests can walk/bike two miles on the levee to LSU's Alex Box Stadium or LaHouse. Those looking for a longer journey can easily continue on the USS Kid and the LA Art & Science Museum before heading back. Most guests unfold a blanket or a lawn chair, enjoy the horses, watch the sunset, and relax in good company.
