There was no cable or WiFi, but it was only $15! There was lots to see around the area. We really enjoyed our stay. Definitely would go back again! - lundgka

I would rate it a 10 if they had wifi. The large gravel sites were level with plenty of room to park a towed vehicle. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. - Swamp Bunnies

This is a really nice park; only 30 sites, concrete, picnic tables, water, sewer, electric, trash cans at all sites. We were here once before, price was still the same $22 weekends. Still no Wi-Fi; shuttle passes 24 hours. No pool. Check-in and check-out 12 noon. When you get there, you go to the sites (must call first for reservation, but they say they don't reserve specific sites). You still need to call ahead and make sure there are vacancies; you can request a site, but they can't promise it in case someone stays over. The usual norm for lots of parks. Don't like this aspect. You should be able to request a site and have that site when you arrive. There are 3 rows; 1st row is in the parking lot, numbers 1-11 start counting from the left while looking at the park from the parking lot; back-ins, nicely spaced and still have all amenities as the other 2 rows, just no grass in between sites, but there is plenty of grass around the park. Also, if you are in Row 1 or 2, be aware of the parking lot lights right along the whole row right between rows 1 and 2. Pets welcomed. Row 2, sites 12-21, also back-ins. Row 3 is the only pull-throughs, very very nice; there are 9 sites on this last row with a nice field across from it. The park is great, but the casino is something else. Tight slots. Plenty of restaurants, but expensive; no buffet. You can now have breakfast at Cafe Bayou and with players card you get 15% discount. Service was very slow and there were not many people in the there at the time. Took us about 30-40 min to get our food. I really think this casino needs a buffet, a pool for the RV park, along with Free Wi-Fi. There is plenty of land there to add a pool and more RV sites. Still no signs leading to the park. You must go to the hotel after calling them when you arrive to confirm the sites you requested to register. People are very friendly though. There are 2 casinos in the same building. Very confusing. - resume

This is a getaway from it all type of park, a place you can disconnect from everything. You are located near the Atchafalaya Basin, so enjoy the natural setting. At this time of year, the park was mostly vacant. After our scheduled stay was over we added a few extra days, it was that relaxing. We were able to choose a waterfront site that had it's own dock for your canoe or kayak. All 50 sites are back-in, mostly level, with the water/power on the wrong side. Not a big deal, our hose and cord easily reached. Mosquito's were minimal, bug spray was optional. Lot's of wildlife for viewing or photography. Night skies are very dark, great for star gazing. The camp host was always friendly and busy at maintaining the sites. Cell service was nonexistent for Verizon, limited for AT&T. Many OTA channels from Lafayette and Baton Rouge. Free WiFI was filtered and slow. Restrooms were dated, but clean. Having free washers/dryers was nice. Many walking trails, but some spots can get sloppy after rains. Canoes, kayaks, and small john boats available for rent. Swimming not allowed due to the gators. Great fishing nearby. Two small grocery stores 10 miles away with the basics. The town of St. Martinville is a little longer drive, but worth the trip to go explore and grab a bite. - don_church

The water, wildlife, and scenery are beautiful here. But that's the Only good thing about this park! Not one Worker was helpful or willing to help give advice for anything! Everyone involved in this park was extremely rude including the park security. The splash pad area wasn't fully functioning and it was nasty. There was a bare pipe sticking up out of the cement. There were huge ant beds all over. The grass looked as if it hadn't been cut in weeks, which made it even more difficult for my toddler to walk. I would Not recommend this place to any family. From one parent to another, this is not worth the heartache of seeing your kids unhappy. - momma7279

What a beautiful park, right in the swamp and on the river. Many sites had docks for tying up a boat or canoe. They were great for just sitting and watching birds, boats and alligators go by. Sites were fairly private and shady. One problem is that most sites have the utilities on the passenger side causing most RVs to either use extra hoses/cords or park close to the road in order to hook up. It is about 25 miles off of I-10 and a world of difference in pace. This is one of the quieter parks we have stayed in. We will camp here again. Our RV is 31' long. - winnie1

Friendly staff and good RV Park. Great Wi-Fi close to the office, and just off highway 90 and 83 interchange. Did not use bathrooms while here, so don't know about them. Spacious and it appears to have some long term residents. Great place to stay to explore New Iberia and Avery Island which are close by. - Legends Of America

This is not a campground, this is a trailer park. We did not see another "camper". The restrooms, laundry facilities, and pool were very dirty. I would not stay again. - bcampbell

Lots of full timers, but a nice park. So close to Avery Island. Beautiful trees. Cement patio. Site was level. I would recommend this park for those visiting the area, but find another route to get here except 90. off of I10. The road was the worst we have ever been on. Maybe 167 off of I10. Loved our visit to Avery Island. - User2475

The campground is convenient to down town New Iberia, Avery Island, and the Konrad Rice Company mill and store. We stayed overnight, and would probably stay again. A new owner bought the campground 6 months ago and has improved the roads a lot since our last visit. His next project is drainage. It was very wet after all of the rain over the last several weeks, and our pedestal was in the middle of a 2-inch puddle. Grading will do a lot for this. A lot of the people staying there are workers, but after the 5:30 AM rush, It was quiet until we went to bed. - northern ranger

We stayed here to visit Avery Island. The staff was extremely helpful, and even suggested we tour the Conrad Rice Mill (which was fun) and directed us towards a great place for dinner. Looks like most people are long term but sites are kept up well. Pad sites are grass/gravel but fairly level and all hookups worked without a problem. We would stay here again if passing through. - Andieham

I was working for Habitat for Humanity and am staying for 2 months. I've been here for almost a month. There are no tables but the spaces are staggered and reasonably spaced. The office staff are great and the laundry is well maintained and inexpensive, bathrooms are clean and well vented and the showers are well cared for and large. Water pressure great, all sites have 20, 30 and 50 amp hook ups, sewer and gravel pads. Very easy leveling, I had to bump up my 5th wheel only 1 inch on one side. Fishing in the lake, lots of wild birds, Egrets and Great Blue Herons. Pets welcome if kept under control, I travel with a Jack Russell terrier. Lots of places to walk or walk your pet. Superwalmart and General Dollar Store .5 mile away and a Rouse's in Berwick. 1.5 hour from Baton Rouge and same from New Orleans. A little ways from New Iberia, made famous by James Lee Burke, and Shadows on the Teche. A beautiful old plantation and a must see. If traveling through Louisiana on Hwy 90 a great place to stop over or stay a while. Lots of Cypress trees, Spanish Moss and atmosphere. - Suzan Dowell-Glaser

We stayed overnight, just passing through on our way to Grand Isle. The sites are all limestone and for the most part level, however A bit close together and no piknic tables. They have 30 and 50 amp hookups, water and a sewer drop at each site. The park is for the most part full of out of state workers. That being said, the park was very quiet and seemed safe. The fellow campers and the staff were very friendly. Not somewhere I'd stay for a extended amount of time, but would stay again if passing through and needed a place for a night or two. They do offer a salt water swimming pool, which was nice. They also have a lake if you'd like to fish. The shower house was very clean and air conditioned. - mclovin318

Friendly people at check-in, but very hard to figure out the access route to the park. They need better signage on the highway. Once in, the layout is pleasant and shady. Mainly live aboards (long-term) in the park. Some sites could be unusable after a heavy rain. Would stay here again, but not during the rainy season. - elmerfudd

Nice city park on the water. All amenities except cable, I was only able to bring in the local channel which had awful programing and was only on air a short time each day. This park is used by the locals as a weekend party destination and is an interesting and fun kinda place! - dewbon1

Awful experience as a tent camper:
1. The tent sites are located adjacent to a busy road where you will hear lots of road noise. More than a few people driving pick up trucks without mufflers. No sleep!
2. The hot water was turned off in the showers, for the entire duration of our stay. Lovely.
3. Their lawn maintenance guys seem to enjoy revving up the mowers before 8 AM (BTW- the park's stated quiet hours are 11 PM - 8 AM.). It gets better... while visiting my family in a RV site, witnessed on two separate days, the mowers operating within their site while we were outside. Just rude and inconsiderate.
4. Tent site = $24 RV site = $20
I would love to hear someone attempt to justify $24 for a tent site, especially considering items 1-3 noted above. We were the only tent campers for 2 of the 3 nights, so no, this isn't a high demand tent camping park.
Yes, this is a beautiful park located directly on the Lake but the cons outweigh the pros at this park. - OTL2015

I reviewed this camp ground before but felt I needed to update from our most recent visit.
Overall, the campground is the same. Quiet, clean and most sites very roomy. Except for the one we were in.
This review is to warn everyone to try their best to stay away from spot #50!
After having stayed in this park multiple time, this was the first TRULY disappointing spot we have ever had.
The way the hook-ups are they are placed very far to the back of the sight and there is a tree you have to work around to be tied in. I have 25' of sewage line and it was stretched also my power cord is an easy 30+' and I was almost stretched all the way out. To make it all work we had to park towards the back on the site and that put us right in front of site #51 hook-ups. Basically, the room we had coming out the camper was the length of the awning. So sitting outside under the awning was very cramped due to the utility equipment (water, power) being right at our door step.
Thankfully we were camping with friends so we ended up spending a lot of time in site #51 (great site BTW).
It seems like they were trying to squeeze a site between 49 & 51 just to have another site.
Overall our stay was uneventful and nice even with the inconvenient site set-up. - jf831024
