You can staycation (or vacation) off-the-beaten-path on the Cajun Coast. We’ve provided several itineraries to make the planning easy for your getaway! While we have itineraries for everything from golf to ghost tours, these itineraries will provide you with some seclusion for socially distancing the world!
Featuring stays at Cypremort Point State Park or Burns Point Park, the itinerary provides details on fishing guides, paddling trails, and birdwatching excursions. And being a Louisiana State Park, there are even extra discounts during the fall.
In addition to military and badge discounts for active/retired military and first responders, visitors staying Monday-Thursday, Sept 1-Jan 31 will receive a 15% discount on overnight cabin stays with the code GETOUTSIDE, and customers aged 62 and over are not only eligible for 50%-off campsites year-round with the code 62PLUS, but also if they book 4 consecutive campsite nights, they will receive the next 3 nights free with code SNEAUX, Oct 1-Jan 31.

Situated on Lake Palourde, Lake End Park offers bank or pier fishing, a boat launch and a marina with 47 slips (monthly and yearly rental rates are available). 147 RV Sites, 20 Tent Sites, and 4 Pavilions are also available. A sand beach alongside beautiful Lake Palourde with access to amazing bass fishing or paddling, as well as oak-shaded walking trails will provide a lot to do on-site. Additional paddling options are available on the Cajun Coast’s paddling trails. Nearby you can climb aboard the Mr. Charlie Oil Rig and Diving ROV Historical Preservation Room, delighting the kids and grown-ups alike with its engineering marvels. The Great Wall provides an amazing view of the Atchafalaya River and Atchafalaya National Heritage Trail Kiosks will help you learn more about the largest wetlands system in the country. There are plenty of options for dining on Louisiana’s famous cuisine, and strolls along the historic districts and even Main Street shopping will provide options for everyone. Casinos and nightlife options are available for adult recreation, and swamp tours or even ghost tours can add in a little more excitement as well!
Kemper Williams Park in Patterson features traditional RV and tent spots as well as nearby tennis courts, ball fields, nature trails and a sanctioned horseshoe facility. It is also adjacent to the Atchafalaya Golf Course at Idlewild and the Wedell-Williams Aviation and Cypress Sawmill Museum, noting speed records of Louisiana’s aviation history and documenting the cypress industry of the area.
The newly renovated Nineteen 06 Bed & Breakfast will provide elegant surroundings, and Wax Lake Lodging has “out-the-back-door” hunting and fishing, so take your pick and relax.
And while the campgrounds themselves may provide you enough amenities that you don’t want to leave, the Cajun Coast has plenty of other outdoor activities to keep you entertained! The Atchafalaya Basin is our playground, and its many inlets provide opportunities for boating and fishing, swimming, and other water sports.
