Art studio and home on 2 wooded acres where I do my art. About 50 miles from New Orleans, near nature areas for walking, canoeing, fishing. Beach area about 30 miles away. Large grass area to park rig and toad. Rain causes grassy area to be slushy. Easy access to Interstate and some fast food joints.
No party, quiet home area.
No late night noise, generator or music after 9 PM.
No trash left behind, take it with you.
No barking noise after 9 PM.
No unruly children or pets.
No dumping on property, but nearby.
No real long stay.
Art studio is off flat paved state highway, through gravel driveway to open field of grass. Smaller RV can use open area to turn to face highway before parking. Some areas have a few trees that can be parked under but not much space so can only pull in and back out. Larger RV must back into grassy area to turn around and face out. With rain the grassy area is slushy.
I have about quarter acre grassy open area that can park car and RV together. All grass and soft in heavy rain. Long driveway with gravel to share if needed. Have areas under trees that are tight must drive into them and back around to face out.
Generally available in colder months. I do travel but ask anyway as I may have family available to let you in.
Honey Island Swamp, COE Day Use area at Lock One, Nature Centers, Pearl River boat launch into Pearl River local seafood places. Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches and casinos about 30 minute drive. Can drive to New Orleans about 50 miles away. Or simply camp out in large wooded area in backyard with walking trails.
What a lovely spot, just as described...an artist studio in the woods, so quiet, just perfect. I so wish I hadn't been on a mad dash x-c drive and could've sat a spell! I'll be back...thanks so much Jerry!
Bluecat-NOLa was a wonderful host. Although we only got to spend a few brief moments with our host, his generosity and kindness shone brightly. Thank you for a wonderful stay, and perhaps we will be able to see you again!

We had a great time staying with this host. Lots of good conversations, walk around the property. We even went out to lunch at a local eatery too. Great source of info about the area especially New Orleans. Would love to stay with this host again if we pass through again.
Wonderful stay in a beautiful area. Feel like we have made a new friend.
Very nice and fun Host. Took us on a real nice sea nick drive. Great place to stay, knows the area very well. Thanks for all your hospitality and we made it home safe! May see you again some time in the future! Take care!
Lovely secluded site. Very hospitable host with great local knowledge. Would certainly enjoy another visit.
Wonderful time we had with host. He is very helpful, friendly, welcoming and accommodating. He gave us great information and good advice for visiting New Orleans and cajun area. He has a good background in arts and history so he is very interesting. Nice and peaceful place.
Bluecat-NOLa was very accommodating including giving us the correct directions by phone and standing at his driveway gate waving like a mad man when Google maps led us in the wrong direction. He helped us maneuver our rig and car trailer to be positioned for our early morning departure. Unfortunately we had to depart within a couple of hours of setting up to accelerate our arrival at relatives.
My stay was great & Jerry is a friendly host.
I hope to return again.
Thank you Jerry!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bluecat NOLa. Wonderful host who shared his knowledge of the area and gave us tips on where to go. Had fun making a campfire and sharing two meals and great conversation with our host and some fellow Boondockers.
Plenty of room for our 33’ RV and great property for walking our dogs.
We look forward to visiting again when our travels take us to Louisiana.
Couldn’t have asked for a better first experience! We enjoyed a campfire on our first night and lots of good conversation. Our host gave us great advice on how to see New Orleans that helped us fit in much more to our short stay than we would have been able to do on our own. Would definitely stay here again!
Enjoyed learning about the area and went to a Mardi Gras boat parade. Drove to New Orleans and across Lake Pontchartrain. Shared some wine on the porch, played some ukes, told some jokes, burned some old bamboo and learned a lot about each other.
Jerry is a very interesting individual whose background includes working as a lawyer and Justice of the Peace. Our host welcomed us with open arms and had a terrific place spec’ed out on his property. He has some of the most interesting bamboo specimens we have ever seen. Jerry is very well read, has a great sense of humour, and a most welcoming attitude. We look forward to meeting him on the road.
What an amazing stay! Not a dull moment at this location. We started by promptly getting stuck in the mud but fear not! The sheriff pulled in not 5 minutes later and helped pull us out with his big truck. We had great conversations here and we will definitely come by again when we are in the area. The neighbors stopped by to chat as well and they were just as hospitable as our host. They even do swamp tours during the warmer months so make sure to explore that option if you can!
Thanks again we absolutely loved it!!
I was late getting there because of camper repairs that couldn't wait
Then I realized I was I was actually a day early.
Pretty surroundings and quiet peaceful night.
