NEW ORLEANS, La., May 20, 2011 – Several Louisiana campgrounds are willing and able to accommodate Louisiana residents who need a temporary place to stay as a result of the Mississippi River flood.

“Campgrounds are one place where families can stay until the flood waters recede,” said Sharon Vennen, executive director of the Louisiana Campground Owners Association.

She said several campground operators are willing to accommodate evacuees and some of them are offering discounted rates. These parks include:

L’Acadie Inn and RV Park in Eunice: This park already has some evacuees from the Krotz Springs area.

Land O Pines Campground in Covington

Poche Plantation in Convent

Silver Creek Campground in Mount Hermon 

Tchefuncte Campground in Folsom
