Atchafalaya Swamp Freeway, Interstate 10 In Western Louisiana

Lake Charles Bridge

Welcome To Texas

From Our Campground


Destination for the day, Baytown/Galveston KOA just east of Houston, just over 400 KM's from Baton Rouge. Shortly after leaving camp we crossed over the Mississippi once again. Ever since hitting Louisiana we have seen nothing but flatland and trees, the only hills we have seen have been man made and are the overpasses on the freeway. Today would be no different. Once we got west of Lafayette the section of I-10 we were traveling on is called the Atchafalaya Swamp Freeway, and believe me it is. In one section you are travelling along a causeway that has to be darn near 6 miles long with nothing but swamp below you and on either side.For some reason they have built the bridges with lots of clearance under them and from the top you can see for ever, there is nothing in sight higher then you. Entering Texas we stopped at the Texas Visitor Center and grabbed all kinds of info and took a walk on a raised walk they had going through the swamp outback, saw turtles and even a couple of alligators. We arrived at the campsite just after 3:30 and settled in for the evening.
