Fun on the Bayou.........Camp Salmen Nature Park!!




Our Frugal Family Travelers LOVE to be outside!  For this reason we are frequent visitors to the Camp Salmen Nature Park located just off HWY 190 in Slidell, LA.  Nestled along the beautiful Bayou Liberty, this park has picturesque views!   Wooded hiking trails, scenic bayou overlooks, a 200 year old French Creole cottage, draping oaks, and a beautiful playground are just some of the things your Frugal Family Travelers will discover here!  There are lots of opportunities for discovery and this park requires no admission! Our kids loved climbing on the old oak trees and telling tales of ghosts living in the old cottage!

Tips:
*Be sure to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in one of the many picnic areas located  throughout this extensive property.
*Small travelers may enjoy having a bug box!
*This park is being developed in phases so some of the trails are not well marked!  Don't worry trail maps are available or talk with a park ranger on duty!
*Bring a camera......this is a great place for family photos!!
*There are geocaches nearby so if that is something you enjoy, be sure to check it out!! 
*If you want to plan an even more exciting day of adventure for your Frugal Family Travelers, consider packing a bathing suit and hopping over to Heritage Park!  It is a short driving distance away and offers a splash pad!


Note:  More to come in future posts regarding splash pads, park hopping and geocaching!!

Directions: Camp Salmen Nature Park, 35122 Parish Parkway, Slidell, LA 70460
