Everyone has seen a 'floating camp' in Louisiana right? Basically a barge with some walls and a roof..some more elaborate, some not.
My questions are:
What are the regulations??
Where can I moor it and where can't I?
Anchor only?
Can I tie it to a tree?
Do I need a license? I assume not if it doesn't have a motor.
What keeps someone from stealing it/using it when I'm not there?
There are some camps tied up to some pilings in the mouth of the Tchefuncte River.. Do I need permission from the piling owner to do that too? How do I find out who that owner is?
A lot of questions here but LAWLF and website says to call office...I called office and they want specific info...I don't have specific info, I want general info before I can get specific info....

Thanks for any input!

Most folks that have them leave nothing of value in them when not there. They leave the door unlocked.
Some leave some spam / crackers / canned food in the cabinets in case someone gets stranded.
I used one in the spillway once to avoid a bad pop up thunderstorm. left the owner a note thanking him for leaving it open so we could get out or rain / lightning.
E-Files are both right...we did the same thing long time ago on Blind River...swept and straight'n-up and left a witty note w/a bill...believe it or not was invited to a crawfish boil...cheers
There are designated spots in the basin for houseboats to legally moore. You pay like 100. I love that little houseboat in the zoo you have pictured there.
Thanks for all of the feedback guys. I am still left wondering how to go about finding out what te laws seems that if the 'authorities' don't know the rules, what is to stop me from putting it anywhere? I guess what I'm saying is that if I fork over a large mount of $$ to build a camp, I want to make sure it doesn't get towed off.... still not sure how to do that 100% though...
