9 Parks near Donaldsonville, Louisiana

This is a cash only site. I called late to make sure of a vacancy and was greeted by help at manager's office upon my arrival. The sites were back-in and I received aid in doing so. The interesting thing was I had to park off the concrete pad onto the gravel, I suppose, because another trailer was a slide out that took too much room. There was a laundromat and dog walking area, complete with poop bags. A grocery store was nearby, actually closer than Google led me to believe. I would stay there again. - Mhlangford

Worst place I have stayed at. Electricity turns off twice a day and water smells like it comes from the sewer system. Manager rude. Rather stay at a landfill then go back there again. - Smo

It's several acres of gravel and full hookups, no more and no less, closer than other campgrounds to plantations such as Laura and Oak Alley. About 25% of of the 100+ sites are occupied by unoffensive long-term construction workers on gigantic nearby projects, such as the largest ammonia plant in North America. Most of the other spaces were vacant when we were there. A half-dozen sites are pull-throughs but you could back an 18-wheeler into most of the other ones. Showers and a laundry are at the center but that's it: no playgrounds, stocked ponds, 24-hour security, hot tubs, etc. Laura Plantation (13 miles away) had guides who gave the best balance of architecture and (somewhat gruesome) history, complete with the owners' suites and ads for fugitive slaves. Our guide provided an excellent explanation of how the slave system worked, complete with a person's status being determined by who's your mother (rather than your possibly philandering father). Didn't visit Oak Alley but it seemed to be a fabulous wedding site. - Mtmoi

This park is right below the Sunshine Bridge. Easy in and out. I stayed here while working in the area. Many guests here are traveling workers at local plants.
Park is very basic but nice. Basically a large gravel parking lot with full hook ups. I stayed here 7 weeks. I will return for work and probably stay here again. Was the cleanest of any on this side of the bridge. - Camping Somewhere

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

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

We stayed her to attend meetings. The slabs are very close together and many are broken and very uneven. Electricity worked, but was tripped when we arrived - had to find the box to reset. We were also told to turn off our AC when we used the microwave so we wouldn't trip the circuit. The bathrooms did not have showers and were not clean and friendly. The floor was always wet and the community area was not lighted at night. There is no extra parking for a vehicle once a trailor is backed into the spot. You just have to pull across your spot - sometimes blocking the area next to you. This could be a much better place if time were taken to improve the sites and make the facilities clean and attractive. There were picnic tables set up in the community site, but things were always wet - instructions were up to wash everything down after use, so it was always wet. - kcjflea

Stayed here for three weeks(weekly rate) while working on a job in Baton Rouge. The location is great. The park is very quiet with zero drama or problems. The sites are very close together. The park is very clean the washer and dryer are clean and work well and the shower/bathroom is basic but clean. The Internet was surprisingly fast. The manager was nice and worked with me as I came in at an odd hour. This is a no frills park, but if you just want a place to setup and sleep and go see the sites or have a job in the area it is a great place to stay. I would stay here again. - Richard and Andie

No frills park in excellent location. We spent a week here visiting friends in Baton Rouge - although sites are close, owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Typical occupants are construction contractors working locally. We would stay here again. - Cousin Eddy

The man that runs the park is very nice! His son is also very helpful. The campers and RVs are very, very close together. There are stray dogs running around all the time. There are mobile homes in the park. It is located next to an apartment building. The only good thing about this park is that it is close to restaurants and grocery stores. - jandhevans

This park was pretty nice. Good level slab. Quiet. Clean. The owner could have been a little friendlier. But over all a pretty good experience. - okccountrygirl

This is a mobile home park that has RV spots also, 5 mins from Plaquemine, and 20 min from Baton Rouge. About 6 miles from Wal-Mart and fast food places. Has full hookup some concrete pads also. We have been here a year because my husband was here working. Anytime you need help just give them a call and they are there right away. Guidrys restaurant in Plaquemine is a good sit down restaurant if you like seafood. - BRANDYC

The beef I have with this park is that their signage is unreliable. There is a sign at the park entrance that says that outside office hours (mon-fri) pick a site and pay the next day. So we tried that ! We discovered that the electrical outlets were padlocked. A fellow camper told us that the rate for that particular area (50amp) was $39.00 . There was a 30amp section but that was behind the arena. That was worth $20.00 All these sites are in a large field in a very quiet area. The fellow also mentioned that we could dry camp for $10.00. If we wanted the electrical box unlocked we were to go see the employee in the arena office. So we did. We walked over as it wasn't that far. The girl at the office confirmed the information we had received. There was no price list posted anywhere. When we told her that we would like to dry camp she even suggested we use any of the site and we could hook up to water. We expected to use our generator so we parked in their overflow to avoid annoying other campers. From the campsite it is an easy 30min bike ride along the levee right downtown. We were there on Monday. Baton Rouge is very quiet on a Monday. We stayed 2 very enjoyable days. - GiroRV

A nice country park in the city which is ideally located. The park was very quiet and felt very safe. Management was very nice and friendly and made you feel comfortable. This park is very close to LSU and a number of places to eat. When we are in the area we will stay again. - malojeer

A grass field, but surprisingly level site. Pick your own site as few spaces taken. Arrived on Saturday; office closed until Monday. No sewer, but dump station. We enjoyed seeing the horses play in the pasture. - 1coloradan

Our second stay here. Easy access from I-10. Great rec areas. Sites are big enough for our 40ft 5er. Like most parks there seems to be an area with permanent campers. Usually toward the back and not well kept. But the areas for transients area great. - G and L

CG is clean with adequately spaced, level sites. The hosts are friendly and customer oriented. We spent a few days here visiting friends and the location is ideal for accessing east Baton Rouge and Denham Springs. Maybe a holdover from the flooding, but cable was "fuzzy" and wifi was not functional. - Cousin Eddy

Overall this is a nice looking park and the staff are nice. However, the wifi is a different story. It is substandard. I was not able to get on the entire 24 hours. Management used the excuse the park was full and many people on the Internet. So if you depend on the Internet for business don't stay here. - ralbaii
