Tchefuncte Campground Louisiana
Camp Louisiana: I’m talking with Carol this morning. She’s the Manager at Tchefuncte Campground in Louisiana. How’s it going today?
Carol: It’s great. Nice and sunny so far.
CL: Perfect. Let’s talk a little bit about how long Tchefuncte Campground has been there and how it got started.
Carol: I believe it started back in the ’70s. I used to actually bring my son out here before I started camping, just to come out for the day and he was four, and now he’s 44. So, it’s been a while. The current owners have just been here for about ten years.
CL: Okay. Now, we had a conversation earlier where I thought you nicely highlighted one of the differences between Tchefuncte Campground and some of the other attractions in the area. Maybe you could tell our listeners about that again.
CL: Yeah, I like that. You know, and it’s nice to have campgrounds where they’re kind of balancing out the different things that people want to do, because especially in RV parks, a lot of them that I’ve talked to, a lot of them really go heavy on the activity calendar because they have long-term campers and there’s some kind of crazy thing happening every single day. I personally am a little more drawn to what you guys are doing there though, which is just crack a beverage around a campfire in the night and just look at the stars.
Carol: Right. Right. Now, you can come up and play checkers or cards – some of the old fashioned activities -, but yeah, we’re pretty laid back around here.
CL: Nice. Two more questions for you. If you were going to spend just one hour on the property there of Tchefuncte Campground, how would you spend your time, Carol?
CL: Nice. Nice. And if you were going to spend just one night in Tchefuncte Campground, which specific site would you stay at and why?
Carol: We have one area where there’s like a small bluff that runs parallel to the river. There’s a little bluff there and there’s another grassy bluff, and then the river, and I like that. It looks out right over the river. It looks out over that area there, where it’s grassy, and you can look up and see the stars. I’m a big star watcher, so that would be my favorite, near the river.
CL: Nice. And before we go, tell our listeners a little bit about the types of camping that you offer there for your visitors.
CL: Perfect. That sounds like my kind of place. Well, thank you so much for taking some time out of your morning, Carol, to chat with us about Tchefuncte Campground in Louisiana.
