Shreveport/Bossier City, LA

Click for Bossier City, Louisiana Forecast

After spending the last couple of weeks at temperatures above 100 degrees, we decided to go somewhere that we could guarantee cooler temperatures.  That must mean the casinos at Bossier City, Louisiana.  Bossier City is located in the northwestern portion of Louisiana near Shreveport.

We looked up RV spots and found the Isle of Capri Hotel and Casino was supposed to have a park.  Oops, not any more, the Isle is now Diamond Jacks.  They have about 30 roomy sites just outside of the casino. We pulled in at about 5:30 PM.  What a treat to have real 50 AMP electrical service. We are currently running both TV’s, both AC units, hot water heater, refrigerator, ice maker, and Tinka’s hair dryer without a hitch.


The RV park is right on the Red River.  It turns out that a railroad bridge crosses the river next door.  The trains came rumbling through on a regular basis.  Thank goodness that they don’t seem to run at night.


Train bridges are everywhere along the river.


Shreveport is on the western banks of the Red River and Bossier City is on the east side.  The casinos are all on the Bossier City side.  There is a rule that the casino must be on the water, therefore, each one has a boat like this dock beside the hotel. Otherwise – playing online (here’s an interesting powerpoint about it).
