Very large sites, lots of grass and trees. Park mgmt put on a nice event for Easter. Lots of kids had fun. On the other hand, our site was so non-level we had to buy extra leveling blocks. Site was muddy. The sewer drain was on a concrete island that was so high our tanks wouldn't gravity drain. WiFi was weak, intermittent, and slow even when working. Most of the campers seemed to be non-permanent locals. Apparently this camp is a weekend campsite for locals, so we were outsiders. Unlike most camps, we didn't meet any friendly neighbors. Laundry room was filthy (had to wash out the washer and dryer before using them), but that may have been just bad luck due to a messy previous user. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is definitely a campground not an RV Park. No cable. I think there might have been WiFi for a fee. Our site was satellite friendly. The sites were bare spots in the grass with a little gravel thrown on it. The sites were short. There was really no place to park our car in front or behind. We were told to park it along side our RV. The mosquitoes like to have eaten us alive. They don't take credit cards. The highways were in terrible shape. Every off ramp we took in the area led us into construction. There were a lot of oil riggers staying in the park, and they were very friendly & helpful. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Walmart we tried to get into at exit 109 on I-10 didn't allow RVs or trucks. There was a low hanging bar blocking our entrance. Since we tow our car we can't back up and were forced to turn around in a strip mall. The turn was too tight and we ran over a curb damaging our car's exhaust system.

Friendly people. Large open grass areas--very pretty. Mosquitoes bad...but it next to the Atchafalaya River basin :) Gravel entrance a little dusty and pad not level. They pick up your trash. Check in and out is 12:00 pm. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

River Rat Bar and Grill, down the road, is a fun place to meet the local color, have a drink, and listen to the jukebox.

We stayed here last year ('14) and again this year ('15) in August. Most of the spots are shaded for the better part of the day. There is a nice swimming pool which goes to 8 ft. in depth. It is a very quiet place surrounded by woods. All the staff are very friendly and willing to help with any thing you need. The only thing is the office is closed on Mondays along with the pool, unless there are people wanting to swim in the evenings, someone will open the pool. This has become our yearly camping vacation spot before the kids go back to school. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishing, boating or wildlife watching in the Atchafalaya Basin. Close enough to Baton Rouge or Lafayette for the ladies who like to shop.

The campground was well maintained, in fact too much so, we had a grassy/level site. They began mowing next to our rig at 7:15 am, not too happy about that. The staff was helpful, but be sure to not have your tires off the gravel and there is a long list of don't do this. The wifi is pay per use only and the camping payment must be cash, check or debit card only, no credit cards. The pool had plenty of kids in it, even though we camped there during the week. There are about 75% of permanent or weekend residents, a lot head to work early and other rigs didn't have any vehicles at the site. The bathroom doors to each stall had a shower curtain rather than a solid door. If in the area again, we will find another campground. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here to begin a tour with our trailer with 26 other trailers. Very friendly check-in. We were taken to our site and helped to back in. We were in the inside loop that faced the clubhouse and play area. The weather was rainy so there was not much going on in the campground. There seemed like there might have been a lot of seasonals on the premises because I saw a lot of trailers but no people. There were two toilets and 2 showers which didn't seem like enough for the size of the campground, but I think most of the trailers were self contained and didn't need them. Don't know what that would be like if the weather was nice and there were lots of people around. We were parked on grass with a picnic table and fire pit. The facilities for us were fine for why we were there but would not make this a camping/vacation destination. Lots to see and do in Cajun Country. Loved the ambiance of the country side, the people, the food, and the scenery. A must do is the zydeco breakfast at Cafe des Amis in Breaux Bridge which is about 20 minutes away. Get in line by 7:15 a.m. for a real fun experience. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My husband & I stayed here over night on our way from Texas to Florida. We called ahead & were assured a spot was available for our rig that's 44 ft. long. Someone was waiting there for us to check in despite the later check in time (the office was closed). The gentleman not only checked us in, but guided us to the site & into it. We were a bit worried about freeway traffic noise since it was only a couple miles away but we heard nothing & slept great. The park was beautiful, clean, & easy to maneuver through despite our length. We will definitely go back! Couldn't give it the full 10 just because we didn't have time to check out the showers, pool, etc.... We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly, accommodating staff and the park is well maintained. All roads and sites are gravel and level making it easy to get in and setup. Lots of space between sites. Shade and grass everywhere. They moved us to a site with satellite reception after the 1st stop was too shady. Good voltage and water pressure. All amenities and areas were clean including the pool. Sites with concrete patios and Wifi (Tengonet) will cost $7 extra. Easy getting to and from I-10. We will add this park to our return list. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here in January on our way through Louisiana. We wanted to visit Vermillionville in Lafayette but didn't want to stay in town. This was a great choice. Really nice, quiet, large park. Lots of room between sites, friendly staff. Really enjoyed our week here and would definitely go back. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had to stop at this park to make emergency repairs to our rig. The staff was great, giving us a referral for a local repairman. Easy freeway access but no freeway noise. Interior roads were easy to negotiate in our big rig. We did not use the restrooms but other parts of the park were very clean. The only downside was paying for internet-we HATE that, and they do not take credit cards. We would stay here again. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped in here on our way to Texas. Check in was easy. Large back in spaces (and some pull throughs). Owners extremely nice. Escorted us to our site and helped us back in and get situated. Sites are gravel but level. Near the interstate, but very quiet. Well maintained and manicured. Pool available and this campground is "kid friendly"...also pet friendly. Walk your dogs where ever you want, just pick up after them. If you stay here, I recommend eating at Pat's in Henderson for some real Cajun food. I had the crayfish etouffee...delicious! The staff can tell you where it is. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice large back in sites on gravel pads. There are fire pits, and wood is available for a price. The campground is located far enough from I-10 so no road noise is heard from it. There is a local paved road next to the campground, but it is quiet at night. Laundry is $1.50 wash and dry. There are a few long term residents. Wi-Fi is available for a cost-$4.99 per day or $15 per week. Wi-Fi is available for free at the tourist info place on the I-10 exit about 3/4 mile away. The office is closed on Monday's, but when we phoned for a site it was arranged for someone to meet us and guide us to our site. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Big. Pool, arcade, lots of groups with children. Very clean and helpful staff. Church on Sunday if you wish. We had to back in. Good place to stay and go to Breaux Bridge for food, etc. But the road in is very rough and covered with crushed shells. There is a company on the river crushing shells and the powder turns to goo splattered all over the RV. We would stay again. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Campground was extremely clean and nicely manicured. Bath house was the cleanest that I have ever seen. The owner and his staff go above and beyond to make sure the guests are taken care of. Pool opened the day we were there, kids enjoyed it. We will definitely be back. They do not accept credit cards - cash or debit card only. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Actual price was $29.60. Credit cards are not accepted. I would have rated this campground as a 5 or possibly 6, however, we encountered a very rude, argumentative, and obnoxious campground employee. I contacted the owners and complained to them. I received a call back the following day advising that: "This would not happen again." I will not stay here again. I hope others that decide to stay here are treated much better than my wife and I were. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.
