Thinking of taking highway 15 from Natchez toward Abbeville. I know it turns into highway 1 along the way. Just wondering about the road. Will be pulling a 5th wheel. Anyone been or live down that way?

We travel LA 1 from Simmsport till it hits 190. Basic 2 lane road with good shoulder. Crosses spillway in Morganza La. Depending on time of day and year you could get behind school bus or farmer pulling wagon with tractor. We have traveled it in MH 5th wheel and TT. Haven't traveled Natchez to LA 1 in long time.

Will be spending the night in Natchez so it should be mid day traveling.
Just trying to stay off crowded roads and interstate. Seems like it might be scenic going down that way.

We are headed to Palmetto Island State Park any suggestions?
Wondering about eating, sightseeing, the park, etc.

You will be traveling on a good state highway hwy 1 which was the main route prior to the interstate system. The area is rural farm land cotton, cane, millet, corn, soybeans. Food should be good. Ask the locals for suggested places. We like Crawfish Town near Lafayette for cajun food. You may want to take a swamp tour, Avery Island is a good visit for its wildlife, birding, gardens, salt mine, Tabasco hot sauce etc. Ask the locals for more suggestions.

Not sure how far down LA1 you plan to go since you are heading to Abbeville. I suggest that once you get to US190 you go west on it then to Lafayette on I49. The area below Plaquemine was hard hit by hurricane Ida. For eating - pick a local restaurant and you won't go wrong.
