Kim & I were shocked today when we pulled into our favorite Fausse Point State Park in Henderson Louisiana.  Louisiana, as of this year, has increased their State Park rates by some 20% and has removed the 50% senior citizen discount for all non-Louisiana residents.

While we support the effort to make State Parks affordable for locals, the removal of extra help for visiting seniors in a time of high fuel costs and rising inflation is a serious mistake!  In an effort to increase revenues, the blind Louisiana legislature and Office of State Parks fails to realize the tremendous loss of tourism dollars to the State that this policy will cause.

So, fellow RVers please join us in our boycott of all Louisiana State Parks!
