Welcome to Little Caillou Packing Camp, our family camp in Cocodrie!

We hope you enjoy your stay. Take a moment when you arrive to check it all out and if you have questions, just ask. Glad to help. We hope you’ll also visit our Uncle’s store next door, say hi and let them know you’re staying with us! It’s a cool spot to visit and if you forgot anything, chances are they have it. For emergencies or questions, you can call Tony’s cell at (985) 226-2735 or Tory’s cell at (980) 329-1801.

Located downstairs, at the entrance of the stairs to go up into the camp there is a standup cubical, in there is a lockbox with the camp key. We will email you the code for opening the lock box. Once the camp is opened there is a key on a lanyard on the key rack next to the entrance door. Return the key to the lockbox, and the code will have to be entered once again to place the key in the lockbox.  Returning the key to the lockbox, provides a spare key, if you happen to get locked out.

Please make sure that all members of your group are advised of the following information:

  • Check-In and Check-Out

Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. or later

  • Occupancy Policy

Our camp has a maximum occupancy of eight adults. This is the maximum number of people that may sleep in the house overnight. Older children and teens are counted in this number. Infants and toddlers do not have to be included in this number. You can have a reasonable number of guests visiting the property during the day, however, we do not allow large groups of extra guests and large “yard party” situations. If the police are dispatched to the house due to large groups of people or because of loud and disruptive behavior, we reserve the right to deny occupancy to all members of your group with no refund.

  • Good Neighbor Policy

Please be considerate of neighbors. The cement area in front and adjacent to the camp provide adequate parking and are included in the rental of the property. Do not park on any gravel areas as this may block access to boat slips and other neighbors. You have access to items to use with the Camp both downstairs and upstairs, so please do not use items from outside the perimeter of the camp.   The adjacent boat slips, and houseboats are yearly rentals and may have tables chairs, crab traps, fishing gear, etc. which are their property, not ours to use. Please be considerate. For safety and sanitation, do not empty charcoal or dump grease or boil water on lawns.

  • Maintenance Policy

We try our best to maintain our camp and keep everything in proper working condition, however, we are sometimes unaware that something needs attention. If you find that something is broken or needs attention, please notify us. If possible, it will be corrected during your stay so that you will not be inconvenienced. Also, if something accidentally gets broken, please let us know so that we can work to replace or repair during your visit or at least prior to the arrival of the next guest.
