This was our first and probably last time staying at this park.
On the positive side, the pools are very nice. There is a nice splash pad for young kids and a great lazy river. Also, drinks at the bar are reasonably priced and they bring in good live bands on the weekends.
1). The sites are way too small. We barely had any room to sit outside of our camper.
2). Each site had a cement slab surrounded by limestone but the limestone was being taken over by weeds.
3). Lots of unattended teenage kids doing and saying inappropriate things around the pool and campground.
4). Pond is being overtaken by grass - its hard to find a place to actually get close to the water and fish.
5). Concession stand is not well attended - we waited an hour for a snow cone. Literally. An hour! We camped at Cajun RVera in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
If there is an event at the sugarena you want to attend, this place is very convenient. If not, there is not much to do nearby
Called two times while driving to ensure park would be open,upon arrival office locked no one around ,called e number was advised employee was at the bar, closing out register, walked around and found employee , well, excuse me,...... Rude with attitude, returned back to Office and waited another 30 minutes along with 2 other families who arrived, employee returned with macho man coworker with total bad attitudes, "sorry to bug you both", got site assigned, thanks for not giving me a map or no directions, oh and thanks for space #161, you know the farthest spot from anything so my kids and I walk 1/4 mile to the pool, oh and thanks for the end of the electric run, you know 161, the one with the bad 30 amp breaker so my a.c. won't run, don't worry I have a 50amp cheater and resolved that issue,wife and oldest daughter went to use restroom showers and advised it was filthy, we stayed weds. Thurs night, park 20% occupied, could have got a spot right up front, but no miss Bitchy attitude, thanks for nothing!!! Pool is nice, and I'm sure owners are to, but staff sucks, be prepared if you visit, your r.v. will fall apart with the road conditions to get to new Iberia.

Only reason we went was to tour aAvery island and Tabasco factory. Been all over Mexico in my travels, New Iberia, sorry to say us a 3rd world country
This is a very nice family-oriented park that is easily accessible by big rigs. The entryway could use better signage as it is located in association with the parish fairgrounds and hard to see from the road. The young lady was very polite and helpful, but her co-worker was slightly bored and it showed. The park itself is clean and spacious. There is a water park for the kiddos, clean laundry and community center. We do not have children and it was the off season so it was very quiet. Sites are level and paved and are back-in, but backing in is easy-peasy as roads are paved/packed gravel also. The park is secure with a gated entry. We stayed one more night than we planned. Could get noisy when full, but all in all it was a very pleasant stay. Be sure to go to Rip Van Winkle Gardens while in the area. We stayed a 45' RV w/ toad. We camped at Cajun RVera in a Motorhome.

First the bad:
1-Cement pads are fine but they have built up shells in between sites so high that when you step off the shells you can easily turn your ankle. We had several people almost fall down.
2-The grass was uncut and looked terrible.
3-A lot of unattended small kids riding around on electric scooters with no helmets.
4-People walking pit bulls throughout the park with kids running all around.
5-No cable even though they say they have cable
6-Could not connect to wi fi
7-Way overpriced in my opinion
1-Nice tables at every site
2-Supplied fire rings
3-Called office for assistance with 50 amp breaker and someone came out immediately
4-Full hookups at every site
5-Nice pull through sites
My overall opinion:
All in all the group we camp with have fun wherever we are so none of the bad stopped us at all.
We camp on an average of once every month or two and we try different parks. If the area in between the sites was level and had the grass cut and the place looking a little cleaner we may consider trying it again, but as of now, I think we will move on and scratch this one off our list. Obviously they are trying to be like Cajun Palms, but as of right now, they are not even close. We camped at Cajun RVera in a Motorhome.
This is a new park and it reminds me of the music park in North Florida (Spirit of the Suwanee). They have live bands for example. But whoever designed this park doesn't seem to be a RV camper. The roads are one way but not marked. They are narrow and have sharp turns. The sites have narrow concrete pads but the ground level is well below the pads which makes using an awning difficult. The breakers are in a water filled ditch. There is a lot of drinking going on. People with beer cans in hand in the pool even. Golf carts clog the roads, mainly driven by kids. Also, they want you to wear an armband the whole time you are here?! Our 30 amp breaker kept tripping. Complaining brought the advice: use the 50 amp plug. Asking if they had a dog bone adapter produced an adapter for 50 amps to 30 amps...worthless. When that was pointed out I got the mechanic's shrug. I finally went down to Walmart and bought an adapter for $18. I suggest passing this place by. We camped at Cajun RVera in a Fifth Wheel.

Brand new park; we were there for opening weekend. Amenities - pool, etc., - were great. However, all interior roads are very narrow. The sites, while nice and long and paved, are very narrow. Even with no slideouts, you could not walk around your rig while on the slab. Areas between sites are still mud as no grass has been planted yet. When this park is full, it will be extremely difficult to maneuver a rig of any size due to the narrowness of the roads. Seems they should have put in fewer sites and widened the roads and the individual sites. We camped at Cajun RVera in a Motorhome.

Stayed at Cajun RVera on opening weekend. This park will continue to get better as time goes on. Besides the usual amenities, they also had a free band that weekend, have a lazy river, nice snack bar, swim up bar for adults and golf carts to rent. If you are new to the area there are many great Cajun restaurants within a 5 mile radius of the park. The previous review was not fair considering the park had just opened and is still growing. We will be back. We camped at Cajun RVera in a Motorhome.
