After spending a nice day and overnight in New Orleans, we traveled to Grand Isle, Louisiana for a few days in Grand Isle State Park. The park infrastructure sustained some damage during one of the hurricanes in 2020. The showers and laundry room in the west building are in good shape as is the campground overall. The pads are nice and all campsites are full hook ups.
Grand Isle is remote and the only inhabited barrier island in Louisiana. It's almost directly south of New Orleans by about 30+ miles, but is over a hundred miles via highway from New Orleans. There were very few campers in January, the temps were a little cooler than we wanted, but we took some nice walks on the beach and enjoyed our time. If you're looking for white sandy beaches, this isn't it. The beach is hard-packed sand with a series of rock jetties located about 50 yards offshore.
