Meet Your Hosts
"Campers are able to enjoy the tall, mature oaks that provide wonderful shade in the summer."
People are very intriguing to the Bacot family. According to Glen, this is what keeps the family in the camping business. "People are very diverse and interesting and they all have different reasons for traveling. We see a spatter of everything around here," he said. "You only need to take the time to visit with them."
The Baton Rouge KOA has been a family affair for three generations and counting. Sam and Louise purchased the campground in the seventies, and their sons, Glen and Ted, have helped all their lives. Glen Jr., Glen's son, has since joined the family in running the campground, ensuring a long running family-oriented campground. "Our parents love to chat with people and enjoy the landscaping," said Glen. "We take care of everything on the grounds, and Ted and Jr. can handle everyone's needs."
For the Bacot's, music is a sanctuary from their busy life. They own their own recording studio and record label; they are avid musicians and love to share their sounds with campers. Their focus is on their campers, and the Bacot's believe customer service is important. "This is their home for the evening," Glen said about his guests. Campers are able to enjoy the tall, mature oaks that provide wonderful shade in the summer, keep cool in the swimming pool with the attached waterfall, and children can enjoy the kiddie pool. "We are in close proximity to many major plantations and about an hour drive from New Orleans," said Glen.
Like their guests, the Bacot family loves to travel and as Glen added, "We have crawled all over the country."
