Poche Plantation, Convent, Louisiana

Campground Review from Jim

About.com Rating 5 Star Rating
User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


I found out about this campground from an Internet search for camping close to Mississippi River plantations. I RV camped there in November 2007.

Describe your camping trip:

This was a three night stay at a campground located in the middle of several antebellum plantations we planned to visit on both sides of the Mississippi. We were not disappointed in this choice of home base at all.
Pros: Centrally located to antebellum plantations. Quiet, shady, level, well thought out design, nice pool, laundry. Close to New Orleans, but not too close. Beautiful sites. Free tour of on-site plantation house. Friendly owner named Mark Anderson.

Cons: They have no tenting area, which leaves out a lot of folks who can't afford the kind of equipment required to stay here. Also, don't go there without an adequate supply of gas and groceries, because you are going to drive several miles to stock up.
Nearby attractions: At least eight antebellum plantation houses within 20 miles in both directions. Mississippi River levee right across the road. New Orleans just down the Interstate about 25 miles. Swamp tours within 25 miles.
Further comments: We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again should we be in the area. This place does definitely cater to the big rigs, because the owners are big riggers.
