Its an aight spot to escape the city and not far from Lafayette. I like the grills and covered areas on the beach with the picnic tables. I don't like all the thick black oily mulch like substance in the water, its like quicksand and hard to swim in. This is not a tent camping area so I'm not sure why its listed as such, tents arent allowed here. The entrance fee is cheap.
This campground is a Louisiana State Park located on Vermillion Bay In the Gulf of Mexico.
THERE ARE ONLY CABINS TO RENT, NO TENT OR RV CAMPING!
This park was very nice but small. There is a fishing pier / penninsula. There are 3 swimming beach areas (all connected but separate). Only beach 1 was usable today. There are bathrooms with outside showers to wash the salt water and sand off. The park Ranger was around and meeting people. The beach is man made and graded so it was clean. There are picnic tables, grills, covered areas, lots of trash cans throughout the park. There is a separate sailboat launch area and an overflow area for fishing.
The cabins are all grouped into one spot and have a private dock for fishing. They are located across from beach area 3 and the sailboat launch area.
We loved this park. Remember sunscreen, bug spray, camera, and…HAVE FUN, YOUR PLAYING IN THE GULF OF MEXICO.
Park has fishing pier, sandy beach/swimming area, pavilions with bbq pits and cabins for rent
