This is a pretty common RV park as RV parks go. The parking surface is large gravel and the space is tight when the park is full. If you need showers or restrooms, don't come here. The hookups are adequate albeit antiquated. The rating I give the park is not for the physical park but for Betty Bernard herself who makes the park a ten rating park. If you want to immerse yourself in the Cajun culture, Betty will make it happen. If you want to make many close friends, Betty provides the opportunity for that to happen with her 4:30PM happy hour which often continues into the evening with food and music. Betty's is an absolute happening. This is not a place for unfriendly people to come; you may wish to go to another RV park. I am a Cajun myself and I appreciate what Betty does to shine her wonderful light on our Cajun culture. We definitely would come back here when in the area. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

You don’t go to Betty’s RV Park because of the campground. Betty has a great reputation for being a good host. She coordinates happy hour every day, and pot lucks and jam sessions at least once a week. If enough people want to go to a particular place, Betty will make the arrangements for the group. We enjoyed our visit at her campground. Now about her campground. Don’t expect very much. Betty converted her lot into a campground. Her house is in the center and all of the sites are located around the outer perimeter of her lot. All of the sites are back-in and are very tight. The make shift sewer is above ground and is located at the back of the site. We needed 25 feet of sewer hose to reach it. Since the sewer pipe is above ground you will need to raise your hose higher for gravity to drain the fluids. The water and electrical box is also at the back of the site. The electrical voltage was about 120 without any appliances being used. When the heaters were turned on the voltage dropped to 110. We were concerned about this. Most of the sites have 30 amp electrical services. Only a few had 50 amps. There are no bathrooms or showers. All of the sites and road was on packed gravel; some sites had more then others. Probably could get muddy if it rained hard. It was very quiet at night. The park had Wi-Fi but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. Betty’s campground is in a good location to visit the many sites in the area. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed three nights including holiday weekend. Very quiet when road maintenance depot next door not operating. Park will be closed from 1st June - Sept 2013. Staff was very helpful and gave good tips on where to visit. We joined happy hour one night with staff and the only other (2) guests. Wi-Fi enough for us to Skype Australia. No showers, toilets or laundry. Would stay again on weekend. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

We are concluding a week's visit to Betty's. We have enjoyed Betty's hospitality several times before and we are sure to return again. Visiting Betty's is like visiting a favorite relative who is intent on making sure you enjoy yourselves. And there is much to enjoy in Louisiana Cajun Country: music, food, festivals, etc. We have been RVing most/full time since 1999. We have camped all over the US and Canada. Betty's is number one in our book and there is no close second. Happy hour starts at 4:30 on Betty's porch; don't be late! Let the good times roll! We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived at Betty's RV Park expecting an ordinary park with the basics and very soon we experienced this wonderful home away from home delight with the most wonderful hostess who makes all her guests feel very special. From the nightly gatherings to the field trips, Betty's is an experience that no one should miss. We were there for four nights, made many new friends and have already made reservations for the end of the year. This is a park that is not to be missed! We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Betty's park is a gem. Come for the atmosphere and the things to do in southern Louisiana. Betty (and any who stay here) will help you find something to do. The sites are a bit tight to get in to, but not a big problem for our big fifth wheel. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second Thanksgiving at Betty's and it was even better than the first. As has been noted in other reviews, you stay at Betty's for the ambiance she brings to the place, not for its physical ambiance. Our community Thanksgiving was a joyous event with scrumptious food, good drink and live music. You don't have to worry about being an "outsider", the crowd isn't snobbish; we had plenty of new folks this year including one couple from as far away as New Zealand. The place hasn't changed much in a year; there's a new deck so there's more outdoor seating and the Wi-Fi is stronger and faster than it had been. Don't come here if you're expecting paved sites, cable TV, and lots of open space. Do come if you're the kind of person who enjoys meeting new people at the 4:30 "happy hour" and enjoys Cajun food and music. The price cited was based on a weekly rate. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

One comes here for Betty, the other RV'ers, and the surrounding area, not the park specifically. Betty is lovely, friendly, and welcoming, as are most of the RV'ers in the park, regardless of whether they're short-timers or long-timers. Many repeat customers. A community feel throughout the park. FHU sites with free, working Wi-FI. Verizon 3G works well here. Nightly happy hours at 4:30 and frequent potluck dinners. We will definitely be back!

Betty's RV Park is a little off the beaten path but is a destination worth the drive. If you used to love visiting New Orleans for the food, music and Cajun/Creole culture but now NOLA is too nasty and scary - then Betty's is the place for you! It has 50-amp full hookups, access for big rigs and free Wi-Fi. Happy hour starts at 4:30 in Betty's pleasant shaded and decorated garden where you get the info on where to eat or hear music. We eat out 3 meals a day with restaurants equal to and cheaper than New Orleans. There is plenty to see between meals too, like the Tabasco plant & gardens, swamp tours & gators, and spotting James Lee Burke sights in New Iberia if you are a fan of his novels. We will definitely be back. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

When we last visited in 2009 this is what we said - "Friendliest campground in Louisiana, or maybe the whole US. Betty treats you like family. Daily group happy hours and frequent pot luck meals are a treat. Small and cozy, sites are tight, but the hospitality out weighs any shortcomings. Can't wait to return. As you can see, we have been in a lot of campgrounds, and this place is definitely one of a kind. We always look forward to returning. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

You will think you are nuts when you pull in and remember this park is highly rated. Well, the park is a gravel lot around Betty's home. Good power, water and sewer but the high rating is for Betty and the friendship she kindles among her campers. We arrived on the day before trash pick up so at the daily "Happy Hour" (BYOB) it was decided to order Crawfish for the park or "Mud Bugs" from a local takeout. What fun and the residue was picked up in the morning by the Parish Police! No smell to contend with. You won't regret the experience at Betty's RV. We found it on RV Park Review, and are glad we did. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

When we went on the road five years ago Betty's was the only RV Park on our must visit list. We have now been there five times and love the place. Betty is a wonderful hostess who has done such a great job of promoting the Cajun culture she was recently honored as a Living Legend by the Arcadian Museum. If you are looking for a pool, game room or other big park amenities this park is not for you. If you are looking for a place to meet people and make friends and learn about the Cajun culture all while being treated like family by the owner than make sure you stop at Betty's. The price is the monthly rate. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Betty is a great host and she takes good care of her RV people. We feel like we have come back home each time we visit. Sites are close here and that makes up part of the fun. Everyone is very close and this carries on into your stay here. Everyone in the park shows up at "Betty's Louisiana Room" for Happy Hour to talk about anything under the sun and what we did that day plus all the other days in our life. Park is all gravel with 30 or 50 amps, water, and sewer. No bathhouses here. Wi-Fi is free and fast, no problems with anything. Some TV stations over the air but no cable TV service. Your sat. dish will work on all sites. A little road noise in day time but at night this drops off and was not a problem. You have a lot of places to visit around Abbeville and Betty can point them out. Cajun food is great at well. Local jam sessions take place close by so ask Betty how to find them. An Indian Casino near by if you wish to use it. You will find RV people come here over and over so come on down and get caught in Betty's web. One more item to see is the Lake Peigneur disaster site 12 miles east of Abbeville at Rip Van Winkle Gardens near New Iberia. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.
