Go Pumpkin Picking, Then Sleep In A Covered Wagon Surrounded By Nature On This Weekend Getaway In Louisiana
Fall is the best time of year to be spending your weekends outdoors, picking pumpkins and huddling around a campfire. If you’re looking for the ideal fall getaway in Louisiana, you can’t go wrong with these two northern Louisiana favorites. You can spend the entire day at DixieMaze Farms and then head over to the Shreveport KOA for an evening camping in one of the most scenic campgrounds in Louisiana.
DixieMaze Farm is one of Northern Louisiana's most beloved farms.
During the fall, the farm opens its gates for all sorts of family-friendly farm fun.
The Pumpkin Express will take you on a tour of the farm before dropping you off at the pumpkin patch.
Here, you can pick yourself the perfect pumpkin right from the vine!
You could easily spend the entire day here. There are several activities to enjoy, like jumpy pillows, pony rides, barn swings, and more.
The corn maze is a classic.
The eight-acre design changes every year, but you can always expect it to be a challenge! They even turn the maze into a haunted maze on certain days. Check the
to learn more.
After a long day of farm fun, check into your rental at the Caddo Lake Area KOA.
The KOA is less than 10 miles from the farm, so you don't have to spend much time in the car.
There are a few different options as far as lodging goes. The cabins are picture-perfect and come with everything you need. But if you want to mix things up a bit...
...rent one of the covered wagons for a unique experience!
It's not every day you're granted the opportunity to sleep in a covered wagon. And the views from the wagon? Beautiful!
Each wagon can sleep up to four people.
These wagons do not have a kitchen or a bathroom, so keep that in mind! The bathroom is located nearby, and you'll have a fire ring right outside so you can cook any meals you'd like. These wagons do have electricity, so you'll be able to stay plugged into the outside world with no problem.
The views at the campground are one-in-a-million.
The campground sits on a high bluff that overlooks the Soda Lake WMA, and you'll have a front-row seat to sunrises like this one!
