Fall is the best time of year to spend the weekends outdoors, picking pumpkins and snuggling around a campfire. If you’re looking for the ideal fall Louisiana getaway, you can’t go wrong with these two northern Louisiana favorites. You can spend all day at DixieMaze Farms and then drive to Shreveport KOA for an evening camp at one of Louisiana’s finest campgrounds.

DixieMaze Farm is one of the most popular farms in North Louisiana.

In autumn, the farm opens its doors for all kinds of family-friendly farm fun.

The Pumpkin Express takes you on a tour of the farm before dropping you off at the Pumpkin Patch.

Here you can pick the perfect pumpkin straight from the bush!

You could easily spend the whole day here. There are various activities to enjoy such as bouncy cushions, pony rides, barn swings and more.

The corn maze is a classic.

The 8-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 schedule to find out more. After a long day of farm fun, check into your Caddo Lake Area KOA rental car.

The KOA is less than 10 miles from the farm so you don’t have to spend a lot of time in the car.

There are a few different options when it comes to accommodation. The cabins are picture beautiful and have 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 that you get the chance to sleep in a covered wagon. And the view from the wagon? Nice!

Each wagon can accommodate up to four people.

These wagons don’t have a kitchen or bathroom, so keep that in mind! The bathroom is close by and you have a ring of fire right outside the door so you can cook whatever meals you want. These wagons are powered so you can easily stay connected to the outside world.

The view from the campsite is unique.

The campground is perched on a high bluff overlooking Soda Lake WMA, and with sunrises like this you’ll have a front row seat!
