Fairview Riverside in Madisonville, LA.

Fairview-Riverside State Park. Madisonville, LA. good place to stay for the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival in October.. The Tchefuncte River goes thru the town and the Wooden Boat Festival is a blast! Madisonville is a small town next to Mandeville and Covington across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. Electric hook ups. Spartan but pretty. You can ride a bike (or take a LONG walk) along LA. 22 during the festival and cross the Tchefuncte. Lock up your bike at Town Hall or one of the local places near the river. Great food, crafts, and of course, the beautiful old wooden boats. There is also a classic car show as part of it. Good food is easy to find. Friend's on the Tchefuncte, Coffee's Boilin' Pot, Morton's Seafood. A friend of mine owns Coffee's-gumbo is good, Catfish Madisonville is my favorite-get it grilled). For upscale dining, there is Keith Young's Steak House (great food with a price to match-ouch!). Above all are the residents of Madisonville. Wonderful people!! That is why I moved to Madisonville 8 years ago. Real, genuinely nice people!
