Why You Should Visit a Louisiana State Park

Mostly because they rock.  When Damon said he rented a "cabin," I pictured something rustic.  Very rustic.  You know, rough hewn bunk beds, straw mattresses, and communal bathhouses rustic.  Boy, was I surprised when we opened the door of our "cabin" and found leather furniture and HD DirecTV...
A girl could get used to this.  The kitchen even included a dishwasher.  Score!
This was one of the bedrooms.  Sleeps 4 with linens provided...
The master bedroom had a great view.  In an earlier post I talked about forgetting to take my camera on this trip.  These pictures would have been more impressive if I had taken them before we wreaked two days of Pourciau-style havoc on this place, but oh, well.  You can still get the general idea...
Bathroom.  Very spacious.  I'm not sure why...
During warmer months I am sure we would have really enjoyed this fantastic screened-in porch, but on this trip it was just a nice idea...
So the next time that you are hankering for a quick weekend getaway with the family, check out a Louisiana state park. The one at Bogue Chitto features all these amenities as well as a waterpark, miles of scenic trails, and a beach area!

That is so awesome. Not very "roughing it" at all. In college we would rent the ones in Farmerville on the lake and they were just like that. Very surprising isn't it?
