Consider taking Hwy 90 or I 49 out of NOLA since I-10 is rough. I49/90 will take you to Lafayette then you can hit I-10 there heading West. not too bad from there except just after the Lake Charles bridge, it's horrible for about a mile.

Also, look at the railings on the LC bridge. It's all crossed six shooters.

We stayed at VRV campground (Vinton LA) for a night. it's OK, lots of full time workers though. For a over night stay, it's a 6/10.

In Texas, a must stop are the Bucky's, excellent parking and fill-up room. The cleanest BR's around and good food.

Happy travels!

Please excuse my tangent.

For me, this is a very worthwhile thread, as the route between NOLA and Austin seem almost like a given for most cross country trips taking a southern path.

The original poster might not want to stop this close to home, but the Lafayette area and more coastal Cajun areas are rich in culture and diverse in campgrounds.

So I am listening.

McKinney Falls State Park in Austin is a nice place to stay. Some areas may be closed due to flood damage so call the park first.

TO and from New Orleans, we always spend some time at Cajun Palms RV resort in Lafayette... just such a fun park and a fun town to spend some time in. It is a nice, large park, well-done park and the proximity to fantastic food and bayou explorations is fabulous... in our opinion, anyway.

AND it tends to be reservable because not many people know about it. I hadn't heard about it until a few months ago when I was doing some continuing ed and coincidentally ate lunch across the table from its manager. It's where Brazos Bend SP vectors it overflow when they cannot accommodate even one more person (which happens pretty much all the time).

Availability is worse than limited, so reserve early, but no question it is the place to stay.

Below is one of the surprises we found in the park, the TV is a 57 T-bird.
Note also that Pecan Grove only accepts cash (about $40-ish per night). Here is a blog post showing it and the surrounding areas, if you are interested.

Also, check Lockhart State Park just north of I-10 at Lockhart. Small park, good shade trees. Nice little golf course is part of the Park. Pull-throughs in the center are nice. Also, GREAT BBQ at City Market BBQ in Luling.

We spent two nights at Sea Rim State Park last week. We did not have reservations and there were still a few empty sites. Beautiful park. Campground is right on the Gulf.

Luling, TX, or Luling, LA? There's one of each.

City Market is in Luling, TX. There is also great BBQ in Lockhart, which is the official Barbecue Capital of Texas.
