Lamar Dixon outside Baton Rogue but not far from New Orleans either. This is a good in between spot to pitch your tent and visit all the very cool places roun'cher.
I always worry whenever we are anywhere with possible gators so we didn't go looking and were careful at night. Im sure the locals would get a laugh outta watching me walk my dogs in any of the over grown/swampy/near water areas.
Nice enough basic campground, well maintained and not horribly busy since school is back in. We visited the areas around the campground and spent very little time in the campground.
Great location. This is a great central location to the baton rouge and even new orleans area. Lamar Dixon is huge, and usually has some type of event happening. If you camp there during these events, it is very convenient. There is a public fishing pond with a very nice solar lighted, paved track around it. Scouts often tent camp in that area but it is big enough to accommodate everyone.
