About Ron Glockner
Glockner's Homeport has been home to commercial fishers Cliff & Connie Glockner for most of their lives. They earned their living and raised their family here on the banks of Bayou Lacombe. Recognizing the importance of outdoor life and the ecosystem that make it enjoyable, they were instrumental in the Save Our Lake movement to clean up Lake Pontchartrain, and were awarded the National Wetlands Award for their efforts. With St. Tammany being the fastest growing parish in the country, they realized that something had to be done to preserve some of our natural ecosystems for future generations. They initiated the movement to form the Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge and drew together a diverse coalition to make it a reality.

We loved the property. It had everything we needed and even a bug fogger for mosquitoes! It is literally on the water, and Ron was very helpful. Well definitely be back.

Beautiful property with stunning View
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was lovely and big enough than we imagined. The morning view from the sun room was astonishing, we chillaxed here for hours in the noon. Definitely go back here during more warm time of year.Perfect get away property!
Great location, refuge is beautiful. The camp ( house) is dated, but the beds were very comfortable. The road is heavily traveled until late in the evening, and the road noise can be heard. Sadly, the house was not very clean when we arrived. Additionally, there is RV parking right next to you. We had people come in for a few days that set up a dog pen outside for a loud dog. So, overall, nice location. Quiet and secluded, not so much.
Home had all the things we needed. Kids had fun crabbing off of the docks. The owner was super nice and accommodating.
Our raised Camp is on the water in the Louisiana Marsh with one gravel road for access. Please note, search Glockners Place on google maps and it will bring you to our front door. You will cross three single lane concrete bridges after pavement ends on HWY 434 South before you reach our front door.
