Great place to overnight. We got there around 10 pm and within 15 minutes a city worker in uniform and marked vehicle came around and collected the $10. Well lit. We are 13'6" high and were able to get down Market Street to the park without clipping the top with the low hanging branches. We pulled into the big lot on the left as you come in; we were the only ones there. Easy hookups on the utility poles. Didn't check out the bathroom as we are self contained. Park is very nice and well kept. They lock the gate at 11:00 and re-open at 6:30 am. We camped at Opelousas South City Park in a Motorhome.

Interesting place. We have stayed in City Parks before and this one is slightly different. The pool is closed. Appears to have been closed for quite some time (dry) the restrooms that are open all the time are at the pool. Bring your own toilet paper and they aren't really pleasant. No showers visible. They have another set of toilets by the ball fields that close at night. There are several areas to camp within the park. At one side of the park where the pool is has 2 large parking lots on either side of the road. There are electric boxes and water on multiple sites. You should probably back in as it allows more campers to park but then you take up much of the parking lot which is also used for baseball games etc. We parallel parked (we were the only camper in the entire park). No shade to speak of on this side but most of the electric boxes could handle 50amps. The opposite side parking lot would have been "more quiet" if we were going to stay long I would have gone there as that is the parking lot for the closed pool. On the opposite side of the park are about 3 additional areas to camp. Most are 20/30amp. A few have cement pads, most are on grass. A couple were in grass areas that would be very UN-level to park on. Would work for tents or small campers like a popup. The rangers and police patrol allot during the day. The park closes at midnight. We camped at Opelousas South City Park in a Travel Trailer.

For the price, this is an excellent place to stay. There are low limbs approaching the campground, and there is no sewer but these are the only negative points. The park ranger was very nice. The sites are paved and have 50 AMP electricity. We'll stay here again when we pass though; we stayed here two days because I work from the RV and needed to sit still for a bit, and we found it very quiet. We camped at Opelousas South City Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here 3 times. We have always parked at the edge of the parking lot to the left when entering coming down Market St. The streets are narrow with some low hanging limbs you have to avoid if you are in a big rig. There are 50A sites at the edge of the parking lot where you are parked on pavement. Quite a bit of activity on the weekends. There are other sites scattered around the park that are not on pavement. They are probably muddy after a rain. Good value for the money. We camped at Opelousas South City Park in a Motorhome.
