The Best Reasons To Make A Camping Trip This Year.

Exploring Nature at Lakeside Camps

We’re getting closer to that point of the year when it’s time to plan vacations and getaways. It’s not a process to be taken lightly. You work hard and deserve the type of R and R that recharges your batteries and reinvigorates your spirit. 

You deserve a getaway you can remember fondly–a trip that gives you a chance to bond with those closest to you while making new friends.

Can you experience all those benefits while staying in a hotel in a big city?

Of course, there are different strokes for different folks. Still, we all spend so much time indoors in densely populated spaces. Why not get away from the hustle and bustle we all deal with and search for the silence and solitude you’ll find in a more rustic setting like camping?

Read on as we delve into the best reasons to make a Louisiana camping trip this year:

Reap The Many Wellness-Related Benefits Of Fresh Air.

Keeping your vacation indoors means robbing yourself of a chance to immerse yourself in the fresh air.

So many of us work indoors. We’ve spent the past few years cooped up inside our homes. In general, winter calls for us to avoid the elements as much as possible.

Air is oxygen, which is the lifeblood of the world. We need to experience it at its freshest to feel connected to it and evolve into our best selves. 

The St. Mary’s Health Systems explains that fresh air can provide the following benefits:

  • Lowers your heart rate.
  • Cleans your lungs.
  • Boosts your mood. 
  • Improves your energy levels.
  • Bolsters your digestion.

There truly is something unique about being out in the heart of nature during a Louisiana camping trip. 

Think of yourself enveloped in lush foliage and breathing clean air. You’ll sleep better. You start seeing life differently and gain perspective. You begin to appreciate everything you have more than ever. 

Enjoying Life’s Simple Pleasures And Improving Relationships.

Enjoying Life’s Simple Pleasures And Improving Relationships

Part of the appeal of a Louisiana camping trip and bringing things back to the basics. You’re getting away from the rigors of everyday life. You’re saying goodbye to rush hour traffic, workplace demands, and many other challenges that wear you down over time.

The best cure for the daily grind isn’t a bunch of bells and whistles. Instead, you can be closer to the elements, enjoying life’s simple pleasures. 

Imagine sitting in a circle with your family and friends in your trailer. Maybe, you’re just eating hot dogs or listening to tunes together–but everyone’s having a good time. Conversations are flowing–stories are being told. Everyone feels closer.

This is the type of experience Louisiana camping offers. The distractions are limited, so you can focus on your present company and the beauty of the surroundings.

Research suggests a positive correlation between family vacations and mental health. Aha! Parenting says camping is family bonding at its best.

Camping sets the table for memorable moments that bring us all closer. These relationships help us throughout the rest of our lives, long after the trip reaches its conclusion.

Camping Has Evolved to Meet Your Modern Needs.

We appreciate any hesitation you may have about roughing it in the heart of the wilderness. You want to relax, and you need to be comfortable to do so. Sleeping on the ground with no shower or bathroom in sight doesn’t appeal to everyone.

Fortunately, when camping at Natalbany Creek, you can harness the benefits of “roughing it” while avoiding many of the discomforts and pitfalls associated with camping.

With us, you can sleep on comfy beds. You can easily shower and clean your clothes. You can visit the casino, arcade, and several restaurants if you want to break away from the bush.

The dedicated team at Natalbany Creek looks fondly upon the glamping experience. It allows our guests to get the most out of their time with us. Glamping opens the camping experience to a wider variety of people, who otherwise would lose out on all it has to offer.

Nature can be enjoyed in many shapes and forms. Hard-line “roughing it” might be appealing to some vacationers. Still, you can modernize your rustic camping getaway to make it more relaxing and stress-free. 

You Can Dine At A World's Famous Catfish Restaurant.

Natalbany Creek Campground is a stone’s throw away from Mike’s Catfish Inn–a world-famous seafood restaurant. 

Share the seafood platter with friends and family. It comes with shrimp, crab, catfish, and oysters and lives up to its internationally-renowned reputation.

Or you can enjoy a platter of Mike’s famous Mississippi-raised catfish. There’s also a selection of sandwiches, steaks, po’boys, and a salad bar with fresh vegetables. 

There’s nothing like a little bit of elevated dining when you’re tucked away in the wilderness. Food like this is a unique treat. These hidden gems are plentiful throughout Louisiana camping adventures. You’ll find these unique, charming traits in the surrounding communities that fascinate and entertain the whole family.

You Get To Exist In a World of Your Own.

When immersed in the Louisiana wilderness, it’s like you’re protected by your own personal forest. You’re secluded, gaining the peace and quiet that’s usually drowned out by everyday noise. 

This type of getaway is pure therapy. It’s bliss—and how your most cherished moments should be spent. 

You slow everything down while the rest of the world moves in fast forward. You get to enjoy an isolated moment that brings you a lifetime’s worth of happiness and fond memories. 

There Are Many Cost-Friendly Louisiana Camping Options.

Amenities and Facilities

A key advantage of glamping is you enjoy the comfort of a luxury setting without the luxury pricing. 

You always have the option of dialing up–or down–your level of glamping. Natalbany supports either approach. You can enjoy a more rustic style of camping or a more modernized version and feel you received excellent value for what you spend on our campgrounds.
