OK, the RV Lifestyle gatherings are back on, this time without corporate sponsorship but organized by our own members, much as happened with our recent winter campout in the snow-covered Upper Peninsula of northern Michigan.

What does that mean?

It means you book your own spot and show up and know that you will be camping and hanging out with other members of the RV Lifestyle community. As always, campers in any kind of RV or towable trailer or even tents are welcome!

Here are the details, with a special thanks to Lisa Gruner and Mary Jane Curry for stepping up to make sure these gatherings happened after the Erin Hymer Group – preoccupied by some corporate issues – had to drop out of their organizing role. Better book fast to get your spot!

An RV Lifestyle New Orleans Gathering – March 21-25

Join us for a gathering n RV Lifestyle gathering March 21-25 where we will discover some of New Orleans oldest and newest traditions – and make some of our own! History, music, art, culture, food, voodoo; the Big Easy has it all, and we’re going to do our best to see it all or maybe just relax at the campground!

We will be camping at Bayou Segnette State Park, just a twenty-five minute drive across the Mississippi River to New Orleans. All sites will have water and electrical hook-up, and there is a dump-site, shower, bath facilities and even free laundry on site. Bayou Segnette has something for everyone – fishing, canoeing, hiking, bird-watching, and an ecosystem that shows off plants, trees and wildlife from both swamp and marshland. 

This event is planned to fill the void after Roadtrek canceled their New Orleans event. Without Roadtrek’s sponsorship for the event, we make our own reservations and there aren’t any planned group activities such as tours. So all activities will be our responsibility. There isn’t a fixed schedule although plans are in the works to do a potluck (maybe a crawfish boil?) or two, identifying places to book tours, ferry trips into New Orleans, local spots to visit, and so much more.  Some of the plans depend on how many folks book a site.  So stay tuned.

The New Orleans Gathering is open to all those who reserve a site at the campground whether you camp in a Class A, Class C, Class B, tent, or whatever! And as of January 21st, we have 19 rigs signed up.  Don’t you want to join us?

You can reserve your site at: – https://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/bayou-segnette-state-park/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=LA&parkId=240020

Be sure to post in comments below to let Lisa Gruner know your site number.  That’ll help with logistics later on especially when we set up a private Facebook group for participants.
