Kamp Quirky: Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Take a Walk on the Wild Side
How ’bout you driftin’ down in the bayou, searchin’ for the creepy crawlies baskin’ in the Delta sun? You haven’t really seen Louisiana until you’ve skimmed through the cypress groves on a swamp tour. You’ll find plenty to choose from in southern Louisiana, like Cypress Swamp Tours, just a quick half-hour from New Orleans. And if you don’t spot the telltale red eyes of an alligator, the area gator farms will give you a close (but not too close!) look.Reptiles not really your thing? You may not even have to leave your KOA campsite to fawn over fauna. KOA Kampgrounds offer everything from horseback rides to petting zoos. On Prince Edward Island in Canada, you can cozy up to bunnies, sheep, goats and more at the Cavendish KOA’s own petting zoo.
