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.

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.

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.

Very nice and clean campground, and the employees were very helpful with backing in our trailer. The pool was very clean and so were the restrooms. Be aware that there are long term working residents and people who use the park as a camp. There is not a whole lot for kids to do here, but it is an overall nice campground.

This park contains a fair number of seasonal units, unoccupied weekdays. It also has some longterm working campers. No matter, the place is kept neat & tidy with the grass being cut almost every other day. There are a few resident hawks to provide entertainment in the evening.

Nice, small RV park that is ultra quiet and staff is very friendly. We only stayed one night passing through, but definitely would stay here again. Very good rates and although sites are gravel/dirt, were level and solid. We would stay here again. Did not use restrooms or showers.

Staff very friendly. I made a future reservation for the upcoming Crawfish Festival. Rates were good, access to park very good just off the interstate. My review is hopefully useful for the pop up camper world. I base my overall rating mostly on the restroom/showers. Pros: Vanity in bathroom making it easy to get dressed. Multiple shower stalls (2) so access is not an issue. Helpful staff in guiding you to space and backing unit into space. Cons: Restroom/showers were not heated. When I stayed here, the morning temperature was 49 degrees. There is an AC unit in the bath/shower. Close review of it did not indicate it doubled as a heater. In any event it was too cold for a shower in Feb. Road traffic very heavy and noisy early morning. I stayed on a week day so maybe this was people going to work. Hopefully it would be quieter on the weekend. Camp sites are grass/dirt. Would be a mess in the rain. May reconsider my future reservation.

Spent a weekend here, not really for us though. Spots are extremely large but we have kids and there were not any others here. If you like quiet and peaceful, this is for you. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.
