Monroe's Shiloh Campground, LA

80 miles and 1.5 hours from our last stop - 1 night stay


After crossing the Mississippi River, we continued west on I20 to Monroe, Louisiana, where we chose to spend the night at the Shiloh Campground. Upon checking in, we were handed a flier warning us of Encephalitis and West Nile Virus from mosquitoes. This was a great start. Immediately, Tommy declared that he wasn't going to step out of the RV.

We also spent some time relaxing in the adjacent hot tub. Afterwards, the kids did do a little fishing in the lake, but unfortunately the only thing biting was the mosquitoes. So we called it an early evening and retired to the RV to watch a movie. We briefly left the safety of the RV again to do our ceremony of the placing of Louisiana on our U.S. map.

We were anxious to leave the mosquitoes and humidity of Louisiana behind the next day and head to the drier climate of Texas. I'm afraid we really didn't do Louisiana justice.


The Monroe's Shiloh Campground was just a stopover on our way across Louisiana on I-20. The campground has a pool, hot tub, and small lake for fishing.
