Welcome to Little Caillou Packing Camp, our family camp in Cocodrie!
Welcome to Little Caillou Packing Camp, our family camp in Cocodrie! We are very fortunate to have so many families enjoy our family’s camp! Please make contact with us before you travel to make sure the camp is ready for your stay. I prefer text to my phone, 985-226-2735, and email to 7241LCP@gmail.com.
Take a moment when you arrive to check it all out and if you have questions, just ask. Glad to help. There is a copy of the welcome packet upstairs that will have more detailed information to make your stay enjoyable. 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.
Located downstairs, at the entrance of the stairs to go up into the camp there is a standup cubical, in which there is a lockbox with the camp key. We will email you the code for opening the lock box (this code will not work on the Entrance Deadbolt). 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:
- 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.
- Activities Not Allowed
No drinking by minors on property
No illegal drugs on property
No activity that would disturb neighbors including rowdy behavior, public
Nudity, loud, drunken or other obnoxious behavior
No loud music after 10 p.m. We hope you’ll enjoy the peaceful sounds of the bayou.
- 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.

Our family uses the camp often and have stored personal items in some upstairs cabinets and closets as well as storage areas downstairs and will usually be locked. If you see something that has a lock on it, please respect our privacy and do not attempt to open it. Please do not dismantle beds and move them to other rooms or move sofas, tables or other furniture during your stay. We no longer allow ice chests upstairs, so please don’t haul one up those stairs!
