As options for a big family Thanksgiving start to dwindle, more and more folks are turning to towards non-traditional ways to celebrate the big holiday.  Everything from the guest-list, to the menu, right down to the location where we plan to give thanks is up in the air right now.

If you have recently cancelled (or rescheduled) your big family Thanksgiving, and are lost without a plan, let me suggest glamping.  Glamping is the term used to describe glamorous camping, and now you can do it all across Louisiana - no butler needed!  Fancy camping specialists Tentrr have teamed up with the Sportsman's Paradise to bring 60+, safari-type luxury canvas tent sites to 8 Louisiana state parks!

These hard-floored, sleep-off-of-the-ground experiences are available at Lake Fausse Pointe, South Toledo Bend, Chicot, Grand Isle, Lake D’Arbonne, Fontainebleau, Jimmie Davis, and Lake Claiborne State Parks for around $85 a night!

For your money, Tentrr will provide a premium spot (already scouted out and set up) with a canvas or dome tent, a queen-sized cot with a memory foam mattress, Adirondack chairs, a fire pit, a grill, and a picnic table.  A lot of these sites also come with a solar (out-door) shower, and are usually located just far enough (but not too far) from the campsite facilities.

If you and your crew want to eat that turkey and give thanks in the great outdoors, make sure to reserve your spot now!  You can check availability and grab your spot in the woods here - or
