Heart of Dixie Chapter
Franklinton, Louisiana

Bogue Chitto State Park

17049 State Park Boulevard
Franklinton, LA 70438

We are headed back to this state park after having a wonderful time there in 2020. Check out the Heart of Dixie blog on the RVW website to see how much fun we had!

Bogue Chitto offers tubing and kayaking (rentals and transportation available). There is also a five-mile hiking trail loop. Of course, camping in Louisiana in August is hot, so activities will be planned with the heat in mind. While there will be no organizing activities in advance, we will have no problem coming up with things we all want to do and, as is usually the case, dinners are a joint effort with whatever we have available in the fridge and pantry.

Rally host Mary Quaid is already booked on site 124 (officially listed as CI124) and Carolyn on site 126, so creek access is guaranteed. Other nice sites include 123, 125 and 128. Site 127 is nearby but a little tricky maneuvering into. On the adjacent road, there are sites 129 and 130 (both of which are on the road, sunny and not recommended unless proximity is most important to you). Down the street and just a short walk to the creek, are some shadier and more private spots, such as 131, 132, 133 and 134. All these sites are in the Bottomland RV area where there is electricity and water but no sewer hookups (a dump station is available). If you need full hookups, you can book in the Upland RV area, but the two areas are about 1 mile apart. It is an easy bike ride downhill but almost impossible return trip, except for the fittest. You will probably need to have a car/truck if you book in the Upland area.

Make your reservations online at and go to Bogue Chitto State Park or call the Louisiana State Parks Reservation Center at 877-226-7652.

Once you have made your reservations, please send your name, contact info, and site number to Mary Quaid at or 225-936-9328.
