We stayed here this last weekend for the first time and really enjoyed it! There are a couple of kayak/canoe trails that were great! The hiking trails are also great and well maintained. The RV spots are spacious and most of them shaded. I would suggest bug spray since the park is surrounded by water. We would definitely go back here!
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.
