Review and Rating of Baton Rouge KOA in Denham Springs, LA
We love KOAs because to us they are like McDonalds – consistent, clean, well managed, and you know exactly what you'll get. And Baton Rouge KOA lives up to that standard. They have a mixture of back-in and pull through full hook-up sites, camping cabins, tent sites, and some nice amenities.
The roads throughout the Park are crushed gravel, the sites are long, have concrete parking pads, and a patio. Big rigs shouldn't have any trouble getting into any of the sites and the camp host will guide you to and into your site and make sure you're positioned properly for an easy hook-up. There are lots of tall trees throughout the park which provides shade for all of the sites.
The Park is located about 20 minutes from downtown Baton Rouge and just a couple miles off of a major freeway (Interstate 12) which makes it convenient to get anywhere you need to go. When you're in the Park it seems like you're in the country – its peaceful and quiet.
The staff is very friendly and outgoing. The park is clean and very well maintained and it's pet friendly. Baton Rouge KOA is around 45 years old and some of the facilities are a little dated and others are brand new. Kids will love it here because of all the amenities.
Unfortunately, we came in late one afternoon and had a change of plans and had to depart the next day to pick up my brother at the airport and then go to New Orleans for what turned out to be a very fun wedding.
We did have a good dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant, got to take a quick dip in the pool and hot tub, lost a game of pool, and played a lightening fast round of miniature golf to practice my putting skills.
Originally we were scheduled to play golf at near by Greystone Golf & Country Club which we heard was a very good course.
The Baton Rouge KOA website has a very good list of some activities and stuff to do. Downtown Baton Rouge is only 20 minutes away and Baton Rouge is full of fun things to see and do, some of which include: casinos, golf courses, fun nightlife, excellent restaurants, museums and attractions, shopping, a variety of tours (plantation, rum distillery, walking tours, or tours where you'll see lots of alligators), fishing, hiking, biking, and more. Visit the Baton Rouge Visitors Bureau to find something exciting to do.
