10 Parks near La Place, Louisiana
Aug 2015 - $35.00
Nothing good to say, really. Big rig access but no pull-throughs. What kind of sense does that make? Lot 48 was unlevel, smelled of animal feces. Only thing to see on cable was the ant race. The facilities were grungy & reeked of urine & molded scum! We will never attend that livestock adventure again! - Saucy family

I always like to judge a park for myself, but will never again ignore the reviews of other campers on this site. I have learned my lesson. I would give this park a MINUS 5 if the rating was available. We travel 10 months out of the year, have stayed in many RV parks (good and bad) but I can honestly say that this is the first park on our list we will never return to. There are multiple reasons but the main ones are the rudeness of the hosts. They were very condescending and treated us like we were criminals. The long check in process that includes every license plate on your rig (which is not a problem), but then they want everyone's driver license that is staying in the RV and make copies of them. That is an IDENTITY THEFT ALERT. They can trace you through license plate numbers. Your drivers license is not needed and provides to much info (ie. DOB), nor do you need the copies of your personal info to be floating around. After you complete this long process that includes the hostess "reading the rules to you", you are escorted to your assigned site (no,you don't get to look first). Then they tell you where to park on the site, so the sewer is UNDERNEATH, and watch you crawl under to hook it up. I highly recommend that you choose a truck stop or a parking lot before staying here. The other reviewers pegged it. - kandid61

I agree with the post: "Absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. I can't believe that people you give money to can be so rude." However I was able to use a credit card. And the receipt they gave me did have their name and number on it. The hookups for power and water are located at the rear and the sewer was kind of under my RV on the door side. And yes "The place is well kept but the rudeness over rides that as well." The noise of the trains all day and night, water and power going on and off. The owner/manager lied to me as well, stupid stuff but a liar is a liar! - JayOTR

I loved staying there! We stayed there about 6 months while my husband was working and it was awesome! The owner is very sweet and will help you with anything you need. There is a neat pond right behind the lot and there are 2 restaurant's that are very good. They have a free boat launch and extra space to park trailers and or boats. I loved staying there and it was very quiet. - rambler33

I stayed here six weeks while working at Waterford-3 Nuclear Station. This park stays booked-up most of the time because of all the construction and clean-up activity around New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. It is a basic RV Park, not much in the way of amenities. Railroad tracks near the rear of the park are noisy. - 870xprs

This was a nice, urban KOA. Easy access to the city (east) and plantations to the west. Staff was terrific and very helpful with tour info. - Wailea Wanderers

This KOA is typical to other KOAs in pricing and general services. The "shuttle" service to French Qtr was only available at 9am and 5pm. No return service offered. Staff said you have to get a cab. We used Uber both ways, cost $36. The campground also offers a rental car. There are signs posted for 5 MPH. They strictly enforce it. Our Uber driver got flagged down by staff when he drove a bit too fast. No pull-throughs and they ask that you unhook anything you pull, as they won't allow parking on the sidewalk that runs in front of all the sites. On the plus side, very quiet and secure. - vtaylor

The Kamp workers were very nice. The gentleman that helped us back in our 31-ft motorhome did a perfect job on the first try! The shuttle fills up fast and you have to be checked in before you can sign up for the shuttle. We do not tow a car. This is why we chose the campground was because of the free shuttle. We had to use the Uber driver that lived at the KOA. He was $5 cheaper than the taxi each way, but he was such a joy to use that we gave him a very large tip. I wish we didn't sign up for any excursions because this gentleman gave us a nice tour of the city and the information was great! Save your money! My daughter enjoyed the little playground. The pool looked dirty but it was still early in the season. All of the workers were polite and courteous. It is definitely safe. - Yellow Submarine

This is still our favorite state park in our home state of Louisiana. We've been several times with our old camper but this stay was our first in the new camper and first in 6 years. Nothing much has changed and in my opinion, it would be a perfect 10 rating if the sites had sewer. On this visit, the water level was very low - no canoe rentals - but we still walked the numerous trails and saw plenty wildlife. The splash pad is packed on weekends and thus feels too small, would be better during the week I'm sure. If you like typical wooded campgrounds with trails and other things for kids, you'll love Tickfaw. One of La's gems for sure.
(note: our site 23, while good did have our door to the camper near the concrete drop-off and we have a 31'. Also, if your water hookup is near the front of your unit like ours, bring long hose. I had to go to Walmart for add'l hose. Hookup is way in the back of the site by the elec) - MOUCHIE

We enjoyed our stay at Tickfaw State Park. There is a small water playground for the younger kids. There are numerous trails, but most of them are for hiking only, no bicycles are allowed on the trails that have boardwalks. This campground had a wonderful nature center. My kids enjoyed seeing all of the creatures, live and stuffed, and enjoyed all of the hands-on activities. I did encounter an employee in the center who treated my question as though it was a stupid question. I was disappointed in his treatment, and hope that all employees are not that discouraging of questions. We loved hiking the beautiful boardwalk trails. We stayed in campsite 2, in the full sun. There was a stump from a recently-downed tree very near our fire pit, and we did have to ask the host to come tend to weeds/grass around it before we felt comfortable lighting the fire. They were very quick to take care of the matter. - RVingw4kids

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 are looking for beautiful grounds, clean restrooms & shower house,great people, pleasant surroundings, nice level concrete pads,& piece Of mind look no more this is the place to visit. Just the smell of fresh green cut grass,the kind you love to watch your kids play on & run across.
We really enjoyed Our stay and cannot wait to try the awesome restaurant that we kept hearing about. Which will be open when we return for the Arts & Crafts Festival on October 24th & 25th 2015. - Saucy family

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

Was OK for the area. Not a big fan of the area for camping. Hot and humid for me. Qualifications aside, the campground was nice. It was clean, had power for A/C, and was very convenient to downtown NOLA. We arrived late night and had to go in the back way after-hours entrance, but it was fine. Site was level side-to-side and we had enough room to stretch out. We backed up to a bayou and that was nice. There were a lot of bugs, however. - steammaker

We love this park. The sites are long and concrete. Very spacious. All have a patio, either wood or concrete. All sites are back-ins.The camp hosts are friendly. We stayed here for a week in a 40' fifth-wheel. The only thing lacking is a sewer hook-up. We love the parks proximity to airboat rides and to Algers Point. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to New Orleans. - oldbluejay

Very convenient park to New Orleans area. We have stayed here several times and it seems the restrooms and showers are starting to show their age. But they were reasonable clean with plenty of hot water. Some of the sites have wooden decks that are real handy if it been raining. All sites have concrete patios with a table at the real of the site. Nothing beside the RV means you have wet soggy grass outside the door. We will continue to use this park as a base while visiting our family and enjoying New Orleans. - bamawig

Advisory! The park website is closed. The KOA website no longer lists the Park. Telephone number gives a Fax signal. Conclusion is the park is no longer in existence - BbTrombone

A very friendly staff that will work with you, very clean CG. Easy Access from/to I-55 or I-10. I stayed here 2 nights as a pre-stadging area for a Hurricane evacuation. They allowed me to stay an extra half day with out charging me, probably because they had sparse business and the oncoming hurricane. The interior roads and conrete pads are excellent. The lake is nice. Little shade but several new trees were planted. My site was along the road and quiet until a truck or car went by. Not much traffic but you will know it when one goes by. Across the street was an apartment house. - WPB

Planned to spend one night. Office was locked up with a contact number to call. No self registration or information on the sites. The nightly rate is just a guess. No one answered the phone or called back when I left a message. The restrooms were dark, lights were either burnt out or disconnected as the switches were on. The place was very run down and we just left. - normajean303

Was OK to stay overnight, pricey if you don't have Good Sam. Check in was pleasant enough although they're doing some construction on the office. The pool was closed, so we didn't use that, but there was a nice dog run at the front we did use.
Site 1 - 23 are super close together - your electrical/water hookup are right next to the next site's picnic table. Site 46 - 57 are pond side and a bit nicer/roomier. It looked like there were quite a few long time residents but their sites were kept neat & tidy.
Site was perfectly level and the wifi worked well. It rained overnight and there was a lot of standing water when we left so that speaks to the level! The site itself was quiet but close to I-10 and Club Deluxe Rd is busy so a lot of traffic noise. - inetelle
