We almost did not go to this Park, but Oh how glad we did. I guess we had the most fun that we have had since we bought our RV. Our site was fine, utilities were great and Betty just makes it a perfect l0. If you need showers, laundry and swimming pool, don't go, but if you want to have a great time, try this park. I do not remember the nightly rate, so I just put down 25. I am just too lazy to get up and find the bill, but it was the same as everyone else. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have RV'd the most of the U.S. traveling coast to coast 3 times. During our travels we ran into several people who advised us if we were ever in Abbeville, La be sure to stop at Betty's RV park. Well here we are and were they ever right. Betty is wonderful, her porch is something to behold, happy hour that is. If you are in the area and are lucky enough to be able to get a reservation you will not be disappointed. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very little in the way of facilities (no pool, hot tub, washrooms, etc) but amazing hospitality and superb camaraderie with other guests - most of whom are repeat visitors. Happy hour every day at 4.30, and Betty is keen to make sure you enjoy seeing the area (lots to see) and also arranges trips for her guests to places she knows they will enjoy. Most other campground owners could learn a lot from Betty - it's not necessarily about plush campgrounds with every amenity known to man - it's about enjoying your time there. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for a week and met some great people. It seems that great people seem to show up here because everyone here was sent by a friend who told them to come here. You need to be self contained as Betty's does not have showers or bathrooms to use. Happy hour at 4:30 seems to bring everyone out and the shelter is always full of RVers telling their stories. We love it here and have been full timing for ten years now. We know what a great RV park is and this is it! We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is probably should be rated a 2 or 3 but Betty is a 10 so I guess it averages out to a 6. The park is a bunch of gravel sites that are packed very close together. They are level and have full hookups but there is nothing else. Betty is wonderful, the Happy Hour is a great place to meet people and she is a wealth of info. There is a lot to do in the area and Betty knows about everything. Unique experience, I'm not sure I would want to do it twice but once was a lot of fun. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very quiet RV park. Has FHU's and all gravel sites. There's no traffic at all. It really is just a big parking lot: no bathrooms, laundryroom, picnic tables, or pool. There is some shade. We had no neighbors, but if we did the sites are narrow. The reason we stopped is for the "famous" happy hours that Betty's has. They are fun and she is a wonderful host. She will help you find things to do and give advice on restaurants, shopping, etc. A nice stop for a day or two. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

The other reviews are right on - you are packed in Betty's yard like sardines! I would describe the sites as "contemporary rustic". They are partially gravel with some grass. We were able to put our slides out, but not our awning. There is no campground bathhouse. That's OK with us since we use our RV anyway. Betty met us on arrival and assisted with getting us backed into our site. She truly works at making everyone feel welcome and part of her "family". There is a happy hour each day at 4:30 and most all campers attend. This is a good way to get to know the others in the park. She not only recommends places to go, but attends with her campers! Often campers form a "group" to go to different events or restaurants. The invitation is always open to everyone. We did enjoy our 6 days here and the uniqueness of this campground. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Betty's is a must stop kind of place. The campground itself is a little tired but Betty and her hospitality makes up for any roughness of the park. She arranges dinners out at local spots for her campers and has a sheet that informs one of all the places to visit and see in the area. She hostesses Happy Hour in her office area pretty much everyday and tries to make sure all the campers are able to socialize if they chose to. Definitely a place to return to, or go to for the first time. There is plenty to keep one busy in the area. Avery Island and the Tabasco plant are one of the stops. Great stop!

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. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Betty’s RV Park, without a doubt, deserves a rating of 10. When we evaluate a park each star has a value point that equates to what our personal experience was and how well it met our needs. We have a 40ft Motorhome and had no problem parking. This was our 3rd stay at Betty’s, and if we were not from the west we’d stay here more often. We have stayed at many RV Parks, campgrounds and resorts across this great country, each has had its own pluses and minuses. But when it comes to staying at a park for an unforgettable Experience (yes, that’s with a capital E)—Betty’s rates all pluses for us. It is easy to see why she is usually full. She offers not only a place to stay at a very reasonable price, but a place to feel at home, a place to meet others, a place to have fun, a place to enjoy everything Cajun and more importantly a place that is definitely of her heart. No, this is not a place to find spacious sites, concrete pads, pools, picnic tables, grills or even rest rooms—those things can usually be found in a more generic type park-and we can assure you Betty’s RV is anything but generic or ordinary. We know how to find a park with those commonplace amenities, but we have never found a park that provides us with an unique Experience as memorable as Betty’s. We have enjoyed each and every stay. Yep, we’ve been caught in “Betty’s Web” and thank her for memories that will last us a life time. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

How one rates the "experience" of staying someplace versus the "facilities" can vary greatly. This is what Betty's got going for her and why some reviewers have a problem with the place. If you're able to mingle and get into the social and cultural aspects of Betty's, learning and enjoying the talents of other campers, the artists, the musicians, the amateur comedians, the story-tellers, and those here just to learn about and experience Cajun Country, you'll have a great experience. But if you want concrete pads, a pablum experience, and don't want to meet other people do yourself and the other campers at Betty's a favor and stay away. Our price was for dry camping as we didn't plan far enough ahead. Still had a great time. We'll definitely be back. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Perhaps some of us should check out the business website before hastily giving bad reviews of all these campgrounds. I checked out Betty’s and I could see plain as day from the photos that: ( 1.) RVs were close together (2.) That it wasn’t going to be a campground miles away from civilization (this may be why it’s called a park and not a campground). What I did see was folks having fun and enjoying the company of good friends (old and new), which is what I personally look for on a vacation. If you’re looking for the old school campgrounds that consist of you and nature and whatever else happens in the dark, hidden wilderness, then I can guarantee your dissatisfaction with Bettys. But if you want to learn about the Cajun heritage, meet a lot of really fun folks from all over the country, experience the local festivals and food, and be catered to by a host that will make sure you don’t miss anything important, then Betty’s is the place to be. I return to Betty’s every year because I know I will experience lots of good times with a lot of great folks in a safe and worry free environment. You guys take the stick out your bums, open your hearts to new people and cultures, and le sais le bon temps roule. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you want an unique experience, go to Betty's. Betty hold court every night for appetizers (bring enough to share) and drinks (bring your own). This is perhaps the most unusual CG we have ever experienced. You park in Betty's backyard. Sites are small. The local area is worth exploring. But the true treat is when everyone sits around Betty’s table. It is an experience that you have to have to understand. As a side note, we parked our 35' FW without problem so those who claim that the sites are too small need to go back to parking school. We also have 4 slides and got them all out without problem.
