Louisiana Campgrounds thriving despite economy

Campgrounds and RV parks nationally have seen a mild drop in visitors because of the recession, but campgrounds in the Tri-parishes are largely doing well, say local park owners.

Part of the reason is most campgrounds in the area accommodate workers coming in who need a place to stay.

The 23 campsites at Linda's Campground and RV Park in Gibson are usually used by workers.
