We were so excited to be traveling and homeschooling across America. We have made it through 4 states so far and have found history, science, math and geography in every state we visit. We were especially excited to find the nature center at, Bayou Signette State Park,was still open in the winter.
Our guide had animal skins for the kids to touch, skeletons, pictures and posters of all native Louisiana animals. Inside the nature center were an alligator turtle, several snakes, turtles and fish. The guide answered every question the girls could come up with and he told us several stories about wild animals that had snuck up on some campers.
Bayou Signette State Park has been one of our favorite parks so far. It is quite and on the other side of the river from New Orleans.. We loved the all the paths through the park and free laundry service was a bonus. The park can accommodate tents, pop-up campers and the big huge pushers ( there just little harder to back in site). There is only electric and water but a dump station with easy access and easy to use. The bathrooms were cleaned daily and heated which was nice while you took a shower when it was below 30 degrees outside. During the summer they offer a wave park for campers and outside guest to enjoy for only $5 a day. We enjoyed the wildlife center that had lots of info on local animals and during the summer they have even more animals for the kids to look at up close.
We had the pleasure to watch a 5k run passed our camper. We actually got up early and cheered for everyone as they passed, even the last guy walking with his dog. I think we put a smile on everyone face and encouraged them to keep going, or at least till they past our camper.
