There is an RV park near I-20, it was $12 more than a Passport America (50% discount) park.
I looked at the maps on Google and saw that the discount park was 20 miles north of the highway, and I would have to backtrack to the highway in the morning.
The cost savings for the discount park would be gone with 40 miles of extra driving, so I decided to stay at the park closer to the highway.
If I was going to stay for more than one night, I'm sure I would have considered the discount park.
I'm wondering if anyone does this type of cost comparison, what are your criteria for finding a place to stay for just one night? Or for longer stays?

Anyway, I just stayed overnight in Shreveport and moved on. Shreveport has a lot of casinos, I may have been able to stay cheaper at a casino, but they don't interest me.
Tall Pines RV Park was nice, I had a nice corner site, with a swing and paved patio with a table and chairs, and it was warm enough to be outside for awhile before sunset. I would have liked to go to the gardens of the American Rose Society, but they were closed for the winter.
I traveled through the Northwest corner of Louisiana and will get to southern LA sometime in the future.
Thursday morning on my way to the RV park in Texas, I stopped in Nacogdoches, TX (don't ask me to pronounce it). They advertise that they are the oldest town in Texas. I walked around the small downtown area for awhile and stopped at the Dragonfly Garden Center and Gift Shop. I was tempted to buy a small plant for the RV. I didn't because I was afraid my cat would eat it and get sick. I was hoping to find a small dragonfly to put in the RV window, but they only had ones that were large, glass and too delicate for RV living.
Walking around the town was a good diversion from driving. They have old-fashioned brick streets in town. I stopped in several resale and antique shops. I purchased a few small gifts for the holidays. I prefer shopping in small towns like this instead of the large malls.
