It's not glamerous or anything, It's just a good place to boondock for a night. At first glance it looks like simple grass yard.....but actually it was a limestone parking lot which has grown over, so it's a very hard base. I've had concrete truck pull onto this with no problem. The grass area is approx. 50' x 65' which and is accesible by pull-thru from either side. If it is raining and you do not feel comfortable pulling onto the grass, I have a concrete pad that is approx. 15' x 40' but is not pull-thru. There are no low hanging trees. I currently only have 15amp electrical service which can accomodate most small campers, or teardrops. I have wifi that I can share for your use.
I share a gravel driveway with my neighbor. If you pass my place and go to the back to his heavy equipment area, he has a sign posted which reads "If you can read this, you are within range". This can easily be a bit discouraging to some which is quite understandable. The sign is there to mainly scare potential thieves.
Also I plan to tap into my sewer line and have a dump station available. This is in the city and i'm off a busy highway. Usually traffic dies down by 10pm plus it's not that bad behind the building. There is also a walmart , tractor supply, mcdonalds and other things within a mile or so.
gravel road on one side and concrete parking lot access on the other side
can pull through from either side, so tow vehicle would not need to be disconnected.
Within vicinity of quite a few Antebellum plantation homes on the Mississippi river. Approx. an hour drive from New Orleans.
If you have a hankering for some local Louisiana food I can cook just about anything cajun.....or if you want some Crawfish "mudbugs", I know quite a few fishers that I can get live crawfish from at good prices. I have all of the necessary equipment to boil em up for ya.
Great spot to stay if visiting Plaquemine Locks State Historic Site. Thanks to our host for making our overnight stop easy!
Rick's place was a breeze to access. He made sure that if I needed anything he could hook me up. Quiet at night but right off the main road. Very easy to find and felt safe and secure the night. If I come back again I would like to stay for a bit longer to see the area. Thank you.
