Glamping at Louisiana State Parks

This Friday I posting about a weekend trip we made to Chicot Park in Ville Platte, Louisiana. Make your reservation Now for some weekend fun outside.

What is the difference between camping and glamping?

Camping means becoming one with the great outdoors and getting down and dirty with nature, right? … Exactly as it sounds, glamping is a more glamorous spin on camping and it is bringing a whole new level of interest to the camping scene.

Chicot State Park : Ville Platte, La.

The park covers over 6,400 acres of rolling hills and water in South Central Louisiana. The cool, clear waters of Lake Chicot have yielded record freshwater catches of largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and red-ear sunfish. Fishermen will enjoy the convenient boathouse, three boat launches and boat rental facilities.

An extensive hiking/backpacking trail completely encircles Lake Chicot and includes several primitive campsites along the way. The hiking trails allow visitors to experience and enjoy the park’s natural landscape, its bottomland hardwood forest and the lake itself. For visitors who enjoy a quicker pace, much of the trail is geared toward mountain bikers, and all cyclists are welcome to ride the roadways throughout the park.

The South Landing includes cabins, a group camp, picnic areas and playground, a water playground, a boat launch, a fishing pier and a dock with rental boats. A scenic road links the South Landing with the North Landing.

The North Landing features campsites, a boat launch, a dock, a 400 ft. fishing pier and a primitive group-camping area. Lodges also are located in this area.

The East Landing is accessible from LA 106. It is less developed than the other two areas. It includes a boat launch, a dock, a meeting room and a barbeque pavilion, which makes this area ideal for day visitors.

The Louisiana State Arboretum, located within Chicot State Park, is home to a magnificent mature beech-magnolia forest and features an outdoor classroom and several miles of nature trails with labeled plant life native to Louisiana.

Thanks for Visiting My Louisiana this Friday ….. Lisa

  1. Thanks for sharing your glamping trip, Lisa. Having a tent on a wooden deck, nice bed, chairs, BBQ, and restroom opportunity make camping more enjoyable. Glamping truly takes camping up one notch!
    My husband and I did our first glamping trip in May to CO and it went well.
