I was going to suggest the most important thing is be sure your AC's are in good working order but seeing where you live you know all about August heat on the Gulf Coast. I suggest that you spend time in the Lafayette/Acadiana area. Lots of history, entertainment, good people and super food.

We have found that la state parks are very nice! We're gonna spend more time visiting them in the fall.
We second that. We stayed at lake Claiborne State Park and it was beautiful. Plus it is nice to actually reserve a site number through reserve america. I wish Texas and Oklahoma State Parks would do that.
We took a 2 week tour through Louisiana in Oct last year, had a fantastic time. From relaxing, sightseeing, eating, and festivals/music/dancing, Louisiana is a great time.
Lake Charles, LA - Sam Houston Jones SP, very pretty
Lafayette, LA - keeping our camping location a secret, stay anywhere around Lafayette
Lake Fausse SP, LA - Lake Fausse SP, remote and quiet
Grand Isle, LA - Grand Isle SP, right on the gulf
New Orleans, LA - New Orleans RV Park, block from Treme
Mulate's in Breaux Bridge gets my vote!!! Bread pudding is to die for.
Closed a few months ago, although the reopened the next week by former manager.
The venerable Cajun restaurant, Mulate’s, located in Breaux Bridge, LA closed its doors Sunday, Sept. 11th. For decades it has served up Cajun food and music to locals and tourists alike. YouTube lists 116 videos for the word Mulate’s. It reopens today, Friday, Sept. 16, 2011, as Pont Breaux’s Cajun Restaurant. The new owner is the manager of the former Mulate’s.
Louisiana has some very prety sites to see in the north and central areas of the state, but they are spread out. The biggest concentration of sites to visit (besides New Orleans) would be the lafayette area.

I would suggest staying at a state campground. You'll find shade in most of those. Mandeville has two state parks - both of which are nice, Fariview-Riverside and Fountainbleau.
Lafayette is nice but no state parks. You will find that many of the private campgrounds allow golf carts, etc, and can be quite noisy at night - many don't enforce quiet time on weekends.
North La is beautiful!
