Im on Vacation - RV + Camper Retreat

I'm on Vacation Lodge + RV Retreat Logo


Welcome to I'm On Vacation RV and Camper Retreat in beautiful St Bernard Parish in South Lousiana! Located only 30 miles from the historic New Orleans French Quarter and 20 miles from the town of Chalmette, LA, the I’m on Vacation Retreat is an RV park tucked at the edge of the world in Shell Beach, LA. When you are in the middle of the expansive marsh, you would never know you are only 30 miles from the New Orleans French Quarter and 20 miles from Chalmette, LA. Shell Beach is the home of commercial shrimpers and oystermen, and simply the best inshore fishing in the country! Get up early and head out in your own boat, or let us coordinate a professional fishing guide guaranteed to get you to the big ones as you launch right off of our dock. After you've made your reservation, check with us for details on boat slips in the park. For your morning walk, feel free to stroll out of the park to the right to the end of the road along with the vast array of boats and fishermen. At the end, you will see the historic marker for the Battle of Lake Borgne, as well as one commemorating the lives lost in the parish from Hurricane Katrina. Additionally, at I'm On Vacation, you are sure to enjoy, epic sunrises, breathtaking sunsets, huge trout, and redfish as well as so many other things you just didn't realize you needed! So, take your pick on how you want to get away. Will you bring your own RV or Camper to one of our 21 Pad Sites? Or, will you rent the retreat camper (coming early 2022)? Coming in 2023, you will even be able to rent our vintage Nautaline Houseboat (yes, the one we took down the Mississippi River). No matter how you want to get away, our cozy retreat will be the perfect home base for experiencing South Louisiana’s marsh. And, once you arrive, you’ll know, this must be the place!
