Louisiana State Parks completed their assessment of properties on Friday, September 10, 2021 and offered free RV spots to Louisiana residents through the end of September. Evacuees seeking refuge should know only the sites are offered. An RV is needed to take advantage of this offer.
Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesseer stated, “We have made significant progress in cleanup efforts. We have been able to open the RV sites at two state parks to help our fellow Louisianans who are still without power. This was important to us because in Louisiana, we pride ourselves on our resiliency and treating everyone like family.”
Spots are available on a first come, first served basis in both Bogue Chitto State park in Franklin and St. Bernard State Park in Braithwaite. Reservations should be made on the Reserve America Website using the code RELOCATEBERN or by calling 1-877-266-7652.
