Really nice campground, gets crowded in summer especially on weekends, but is is close to swamps, and a very good Seafood restaurant next door.

Plantations will primarily be down the great river rd., Hwy 1 south of Baton Rouge to Luling where you can cross the river to head to NO or head back up the river on the east side as there are a number of plantations on that side.
Two of the most popular are Nottaway just south of BR and then my favorite Oak Alley farther down river. Do yourself a favor and save some time for the tours especially the individual guided tour at Oak Alley There is also a very good restaurant on the grounds.

Truthfully that area of La. is loaded with history and things to see. Most of the parishes in that area have good websites/tourist bureaus that can load you down with info. I am a La. native and still marvel about the number of places I am just learning about. Oh and don't forget to sample all the food that area is famous far.

Have a great trip and bring cool clothes and rain gear.

Must see Laura Plantation. It's just down from Oak Alley and was run by women. English wasn't allowed to be spoken in the house until about 50 years ago. Very interesting stories.

Totally agree! This is a nice plantation to visit. We went further south and toured some other ones and actually got to see the one that was used to make the movie Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte. It was every as that movie gave me nightmares for weeks and as we are touring we came to the room with the stairway. I recognized it and felt that same dread I had as a child. No matter as it is an incredible mansion. I think it was called Houmas Mantion.
