Catfish Heaven Campground, Saint Martinville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2006 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We were misled by the website, the website said it was $21.50 per nite and the actual cost was $25.00, no problem, then they charge $2.50 per person per day for the swimming pool, still no problem, then they charge $2.00 per pound for the catfish that you catch, still no probem, then we find out the swimming pool closes at 5:30 pm, this is a problem, and the fish pond closes at 6:00 pm, this is a problem also. The owner came to talk to me once I complained about all the differences that weren't spelled out on the website, he assured me he was willing to make changes. I've never been to a campground that closed everything down by 6:00 pm. maybe he should rethink his occupation. I have 3 kids and we arrived at 2:00 pm, so what were we to do from 6:00 pm. to dark? 8:30 pm. The owner ended up opening the fish pond to us and our neighbor, so we were able to fish. I told the owner to advertise on his website exactly what people will get when the come to their campground. I.E. we charge $25.00 per nite, $2.50 per swimmer per day, $2.00 per pound of whole catfish (which there are plenty), we close the pool at 6:00 pm and the fishing at 6:00 pm. If you tell me all this up front then when I come to camp and I'm not satisfied, then its my fault, otherwise, please don't mislead me with false information, thanks for your listening. We camped at Catfish Heaven Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
