Fairview river side is a nice little park! Be sure to tour the Ottis house on the grounds as the tour is free if you are camping there. They also have a private dock and boatlaunch. You may already know, but there is a nice Maritime museum about 3 blocks south of of Mainstreet, costs around 5 dollars a head. Friends is my favorite restaurant in Madosonville. We only live about 20 miles away in Ponchatoula. Some nice surrounding parks are Fountain Blue (west side of Mandeville) bigger park right on the Lake - nice beach area and pier. Also Bouge Chitto about 20-25 miles north of Covington (brand new park, half the roads are gravel) with lots of great hiking trails and fishing areas. I hope you enjoy the area.

made a trip up country today....hwy 21 to bogalusa and then back west on Hwy 10 to franklinton...where they were celebrating their 150 year anniversary with a prade down the main street, which i got in and had to wait to get through........

nice drive thru the countryside full of azelas......

I have decided to travel through ponchatoula as i make my way to saint francisville....all enroute to natchez mississippi....where my short tour of louisiana will come to an end......

it has been a great trip and louisiana in the springtime is the only way to go......i

Hwy 22 is a nice scenic drive. Got a few little antique shops in Ponchatoula. Mi Patio is a very good Mexican restaraunt, it will be on your right as you are coming into town. Be careful going through Springfield as the local police are very strict. Glad you have enjoyed Souther Louisiana!

When you get to Ark. Petit Jean State park is very nice (kinda Southeast Ark if I remember right) has a very steep and curvey road to get to the park. Some of the sites are unlevel but a nice layout. Lots of good mountain trails.

what a neat day, it turns out

left fairview riverside state park this morning headed out on La 22 towards ponchatoula and then up and over on Hwy La 10 to saint francisville....a beautiful town....the azelazs along the drive were just beautiful....

put the airstream aboard the ferry and sailed across the mississippi to the new road side and then followed up La 10/La 1 to morganza where we were going to park for the night...... but the park did not suit my eye and we just drove on......heading for natchez to see what one could see and a place for the night....

Took La 15 , a scenic trip up the river road, and by chance headed for vidalia and as were driving by we noticed the river view rv park and resport....their sign out front said "welcome airstream travelers" and we whupped it right in....

by clear coincidence the sign was not for us....but for a wbcci caravan of the civil war battlefields.......and we just joined in among them for the night.....shesjam.......

We musta missed you by about 3 hours...pulled out of Riverview RV park around lunch today...the Caravan was just arriving...we did loop thru their area and said "hey!"

Enjoy your stay. We took the Natchez Trace northward out of town, the Dogwoods are in full bloom.

officially louisiana tour is over

but we continue on into mississippi and at natchez state park near the start of the natchez trace....the state park here is beautiful with a great hiking trail and a large lake.

exploring old downtown natchez and up the trace about a 100 miles or so before we depart here bound for moro bay arkansas.
