2 Parks near Convent, Louisiana
Oct 2015 - $40.00
We chose Poche due to closeness to River Road and the plantations.
Must say it is unique. Do not expect a KOA or a state park. You will find a swimming pool and a hot tub, large bathrooms, and a community room with a fully equipped kitchen.
I must say, Thank you for a beautiful spot to park the last four days. Your crew is outstanding, friendly, and helpful. Extremely quiet park for all the tenants you have. Wendy was great and very knowledgeable about the town.
It is hard to get in touch with the park. A brochure would be helpful, also.
Hope to visit again. Good luck on the upcoming art festival. And, looking forward to Uncle Larry's cafe. Great jambalaya!!! - jagarraway

If you believe the hype of their website, you'll be truly disappointed. We were. This campground is on a plantation, but don't expect a whole lot. There are some glorious plantations in the area, but his isn't one of them. Yes, our site was a concrete pad, but when we arrived, it was covered with mud and debris from the previous occupant, who had left 4 days earlier. We were told that someone was supposed to have cleaned it up. My wife spent 45 minutes sweeping the pad, before the rains came and turned our concrete pad into a pad of mud. Once we set up and put our awning out, our 'patios' was two feet from our neighbors sewer hole, and it was not a pleasant area to enjoy coffee or a drink. No picnic tables were available. (There wouldn't have been any room, anyway.) When we asked the manager about restaurants or destinations, she was totally clueless and told us she'd only been there for a couple of months. Apparently, most of the campers work in the area and those that we met were very nice. It was very quiet in the CG since these guys go to work very early and come home late, very tired. I would not return to the "Resort", ever again. Very, very disappointed. If you feel you need to stay here, I'd recommend the gravel/grass section, but not the concrete pads. The grassy area seems to give rigs a bit more room. - Gus the Fireant

Owner has two parks on Rt. 44 along the river, Pouche and Sugar Hill. Pouche was full so I was directed to Sugar Hill. These two parks are about the only option if you want to tour the Plantations in the area. This park was a former FEMA park and is quite large. Wide open area with many folks living in their rigs full time. Many sites are grass and might be hard to back into due to narrow culverts over drainage ditches running full length of both roads. I ended up in a concrete pull through that I had to back into due to narrow drives. Utilities were fine and park was fairly neat. This is not a resort type park that you would want to stay in for a long period of time but worked fine for the plantation tours. Highway 44 parallels the river and is narrow and curvy. Good access to the one river bridge and Interstate 10. - Lynn Wagoner

Sugar Hill RV Park, is a sister park to Poche Plantation & RV Park. It is located outside of Gonzales, which is basically in between the State's capital: Baton Rouge and the beautiful city of New Orleans. It is a neat, clean and very friendly park right along the Mississippi River. It is a definite stay if visiting in the area!! - Alice Henderson
