AR & LA - where to stay, what to do.

Rick & Pam here. On route from Savage, MN to winter destination in Rockledge, FL. We decided to add AR & LA to our travel map. Expecting to make it close to Little Rock by days end. Wondering if anyone has recommendations about places to stay/things to do in or around Little Rock? Also would love to hear about your experiences in New Orleans.

DW and I celebrated our 45th in New Orleans this last August, we stayed at Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego, LA. Lovely little campground, clean and neat. We spent most of our time in the New Orleans French Quarter trying our different restaurants. Some really great food. By the way, LA state parks accept the America the Beautiful Senior Pass and you get half price for your space. Unfortunately no sewer connections at the one, but have water and electric 30/50 amp. at each site.

We drove thru Little Rock on our way to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro (I am including a link with a map and all of the park info). Gorgeous campground, and the only place I am aware of that lets you hunt for diamonds. We spent 4 days looking/sifting/screening since my better half is a rockhound and was DETERMINED to find a big gemstone. She did find a small one that made her day! But it was very small, so we had to stop in Murfreesboro and visit a local silversmith that buys the bigger diamonds found in the park, and sells them to folks like us. There were about 2 large diamonds found daily, the park rangers announce it over the PA system. I had to keep my wife from tackling them everyday.

Safe Travels!

Nice rv park in North Little Rock on the Ark River. Walk over the bridge to downtown Entertainment district. I recommend Uncle Gus famous fried Chicken. There is also a seafood joint next to the Marriot called Flying fish. Walking distance to the Bill Clinton Museum. If you are into those sorts of things. Best Fried Chicken I have ever eaten and I have ate a lot! Good luck! JD

If you come south on I49 to Lafayette Cajun Palms is a really nice RV Park. Tour Cajun Country for a couple of days & enjoy the local food & life style. New Orleans French Quarter & Garden District is nice also.

X2 what Hogbus said. Park on the river is Welcome, park is clean, price is right, easy in/out, and on the Arkansas River. Foot bridge across river at the park to visit Clinton library and entertainment district.

X2 what CampingCajun says about Cajun Palms RV Resort. We stayed there last night and very nice park. Good staging area to visit cajun country and get the food. Beautiful Avery Island Visitor Information | Avery Island | TABASCO.COMwithin day driving trip from Cajun Palms. Many good seafood and cajun restaurants around Cajun Palms to Breaux Bridge, La. We like Pont Breaux's Cajun Restaurant and get to listen/dance to cajun music.

I have to qualify what I said about the America the Beautiful Senior pass in my previous post. If your state accepts it or you are a Louisiana resident, you can get a 50% discount.

Title 25
Part IX. Office of State Parks
National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Passes. Any citizen of the United States who possesses a national parks and federal recreation lands senior pass (formerly the golden age passport) or access pass (formerly the golden access passport) issued by any agency of the United States, pursuant to 16 U.S.C. section 460 L-65, upon presentation of the pass and proper identification to any OSP authorities, shall be exempt from the day-use entrance fee to any OSP site and/or receive a 50percentdiscount on camp site rental fees provided that the state park system of the citizen’s domicile as reflected on his presented identification also recognizes such passes for discounted access and services.

I had to look it up and make sure I was giving folks correct information.

I second the Cajun Palms recommendation. If you stop in Henderson LA try Pats of Henderson restaurant. There are several nice state parks around New Orleans also. Inexpensive and close to town but away from the crowd. If you are stopping on I55, check out Indian Creek campground near Independence just north of Henderson, LA. Good luck.
