Campgrounds near I-10 Louisiana to Florida

This forum is a fantastic resource! We are wanting suggestions for places to camp and/or park while traveling on I-10 from east Texas border to Florida. We do have reservations at Gulf Islands National Park in Florida.

The French Quarter RV Resort is just off I-10 in New Orleans. In fact, you can look down and see it from I-10 when traveling through NOLA. It's a bit pricey, but within easy walking distance of the Quarter if you like that sort of thing.

Bayou Segnette is about 20-25 minutes off off I-10, but very nice. It's where we stay when in NOLA.

Safe travels, and have fun.

If I remember correctly...

Baywood Campground & RV Park

1100 Cowan Road, Gulfport, MS 39507-3498

(228) 896-4840

is operated by a fellow Airstreamer...

I have not stayed there but a Pal looped thru and gave it a good review...

Just a bit further east is
Gulf Islands National Seashore - Davis Bayou Camping (U.S. National Park Service)
if you like a small town area, check out Oceans Springs and the Walter Anderson art collection/Shearwater pottery.

Both are a short ride from the campground

From there, it's a nice relaxed run to your destination...

Hollywood Casino in Bay Saint Louis, MS. Gave a fellow Airstreamer one free night - may extend that for you if you use their establishment. BSL is a nice little touristy town. Can check out the whole place in 2 days. Full hookups, security.

Topsail Hill State Park Destin, FL. Cannot say enough - it's a resort. GREAT campground and people. Great Beaches, lots to do in the area.

I will second the motion for Fairview-Riverside State park. I was there two weeks ago. It is located at Madisonville, LA not, far from Mandeville, off I-12, which keeps you from having to deal with the traffic on I-10 through New Orleans. The cost is about $15 per night.

Have stayed at Blackwater River State Park just east of Pensacola and not far off I-10. Nice spot.

I have also stayed at Blackwater SP and agree that it is a nice place. Good sites and neat walking/nature/river area. You may want to check a hard copy map if going there, my GPS routed us over a weight limit bridge, on a nice but out of the way road, according to the park ranger, that is a common GPS problem.

Also stayed at Sam Houston SP in Lake Charles, a nice place a few miles off I 10.
