This was a great little spot to spend a few days. We had an amazing time watching the wildlife and enjoying the water in the middle of nowhere Louisiana. There is a bar not too far away that we enjoyed meeting some locals at. Our hotspots worked great here to have a productive work week too. Be careful how you get here though!! There is a low clearance bridge that takes you over the levee that there is no way an RV would clear. Be sure to check maps/directions and plan accordingly!!
We decided last minute to check out Cajun Mardi Gras and L'acadie had a spot open so we took it. Everyone there was perfectly nice and it was a great location to get downtown Eunice to watch the festivities. However, there really isn't much to this park. You are basically parking in a field behind the hotel office. There is no bathroom/shower facility either - FYI! However, we did love checking out Cajun Mardi Gras. It was seriously unlike anything we had ever seen!!
We go to Chicot often because it is close to us. It has good hiking trails and arboretum. We usually tent camp on the south loop. These sites are not too close together. The only complaint have is that the tent pads need to be redone. The bathhouse is old but kept clean. There is a playground and splash pad near by for the kids. The lake is beautiful. Convince store is near by and WalMart about 20 minutes away.
It's a decent spot for being nearby to Lafayette. The thing I don't like is the expensive prices for State Parks in Louisiana and the closed gates that don't allow late night entrance. Small man made pond in the back, watched a kid catch a large bass a few years back. The primitive hike in spots are on the back side of the pond so you have to hike in about a mile to rent camp for cheaper than the price of the RV pull up spots. This is a newer state park and it has nice, clean, large facilities with showers and bathrooms. The trail is super short. Overall the park is very small. Fun spot for kayak fishing. Noticed lots of invasive apple snails.
This is a typical KOA with the normal KOA amenities and tight spaces. We normally stayed a month at a time and always were put in the section that is farthest away from the office and all of those amenities. The brunette co-owner is “curt, bordering on rude”. The rest of the staff are great to deal with!
The store is adequate as are the showers, the laundry (w/a mini library swap stop) is very nice. This KOA is very clean.
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.
Nothing special about this campground, but a nice get-away if you live close by and just want to enjoy some peace and quiet away from home. That's what I always used it for. Warning, though…bring your own water. Something is wrong with the water there. It smells and tastes weird. Don't know if it's the pipes or what, but it's nasty.
Poche’s have great spots that can be backed in and there are a few pull throughs. The owners are very hospitable. There are facilities for group events. This is where we take our camper when we wish to find peace, quiet, and great fishing.
Located south of Abbeville, LA, in a swampy region. They honor National Park Pass with half price sites. Water and electric adequate. No sewer. Washers and dryers available. Splash pad. Pavilions for rent. Educational program by rangers. They just upgraded 8 sites with sewage.
Concrete pads, good electricity but water pressure a bit low. I had better pressure using my onboard water and pump. Bar and grill are good and weekend music.
We camped at site 363, not too bad, definitely needs upgrades. Not enough space between campers to even light a fire. There are miles of beautiful hiking trails, but beware of snakes! The bathrooms were recently updated so they were really nice. Also the laundry facilities were clean! Not too many wild flowers this trip. 😞
This place is ok, there are hook ups and a great trail, its next to a city park for the kids but then there is the however part. Its in the middle of town, you travel thru a neighbor to get to it, the park is a city park so on the weekend its pretty crowded.
