This was a great one-night stop for us. It appears to be a very popular place for locals during the summer. The two pools were packed. However, we got a quiet site in the back of the park on the lake. We enjoyed feeding the ducks and watching the paddleboats on the water. Our site had a large tree that hung out over the water creating shade. There was a fire pit just a few feet from the water's edge. I do believe there are some permanent residents in this park. It is older but well kept. Cable was an extra $3. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Great park with very friendly staff. Our spot was on the lake and was very relaxing. Park was very clean, however sites were close together. Interstate noise was not bad. Costs extra for paddle boats and putt putt golf. We will stay here again. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Billy's bounding is a must.

Stayed at this campground for two nights en route from San Antonio TX to Tennessee. Sites were narrow and you have to be careful when you pull out so you don't drop into the drainage ditches on either side of campsites. Avoid sites 160 to 152; they are on the roadway into the campground it had constant traffic--many drivers didn't follow posted speed limits. Campground is old but well maintained. Staff were friendly. A bad storm came through while we came through but we had power throughout, making us luckier than many people in Lafayette. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Several restaurants nearby. The staff offer several free self-drive CDs of the area. We used one that took us on a beautiful garden tour and to the Tabasco Factory. Made for an enjoyable day trip.

I think it has been 9 years since we last stayed here. After finding our first two choices for Memorial Day Weekend full, we stayed here. The park was fairly full with lots of families and groups here for the holiday. There is a separate extended stay section on the west side of the park with about 50 sites. Most of those were occupied. There are also 22 cabins, about half a dozen tent sites, and 16 side by side sites west of the lake. The main section has about 80 sites with most of those being FHU. There is a variety of combinations of 50 or 30 amp. back-in or pull-through, cable TV (60+ channels) or not. If you want more that local over the air TV, cable TV is almost a must as only a handful of sites appear to be even close to being satellite friendly (lots of trees). We had a lot of trouble with their 802.11 system. We could not connect initially and, almost every time we were able to connect, we lost the connection within an hour. I think the main problem is that now everygovy has an electronic devise. It used to be every site might have a computer - now, on a busy weekend with lots of families, every site has 4, 5, 6 devices being used. I walked one site where 3 kids were all siting there on there own devices. That bathroom facilities (in the main building and a large bath/laundry building on the east end of the park) are not adequate for a park this size. There was a van full of a dozen young, coed adults from the U.K. tent camping by the bath laundry and they dominated those bathrooms for over an hour in the evening and again in the early morning. We had a level, cement pad and patio, FHU, pull through site near that bathhouse. Most of the cement pads are surrounded by gravel - with all the trees, grass is not possibility. Most people will be bothered by traffic noise from I-10, the occasional train, the size of the sites (most are narrow and many are not long enough for RV and toad), and all the kids during the season. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Our site was very narrow. There was no place for neighbor to park his car so he parked in our yard. Okay for overnight. Nice lake but unless your spot was on the lake, you didn't have access.

They have a wonderful laundry room. Lots of washers and dryers and very clean. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Friendly staff. Stayed off season so most amenities were not available. Love the LARGE ponds and ducks. A lot of highway noise but it does not deter from the very well maintained campground. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We renewed our KOA membership and wished we didn't as we normally don't stay at KOA's, but it was the only thing in the immediate area. Everyone was very nice. Wifi and cable strong. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Laundry A+. Direct WiFi available in laundry. Level spots. Too close to highway. Road noise really loud. For the noise, I thought the rate was too high. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. The place is big and has been here for years and it's a KOA if you know what I mean. Lots for kids like a lake and fishing and paddle boats and mini golf etc. There are two pools and trees cover the park. It is loud. You are basically camped on the I-10 and hear it all night. WiFi was iffy but the cable was good. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Try Billy's boudin balls at the entrance - fabulous. and Fezzos for lunch also. Don's specialty meats is good too, but Billy's is better. Visit Vemilionville, it's worth the visit. Acadian Village was a nice visit as well. Drove to St. Martinsville to see the church and the Evangeline statue. All good photo ops.

Nice place, well maintained it had two pools. It had internet but it cost $3 extra and it didn't work half the time but when it did it was extremely slow. The staff was very helpful and recommended great restaurants which our family enjoyed. If your looking for some good authentic boudin balls go to Billy's right by the camp entrance. Overall a good place would stay there again. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Pros: Helpful friendly staff Long level concrete pads Plenty of shade at the sites. Good location for visiting Lafayette and Acadian sites Cons: Road noise - we have stayed in any number of right off the highway campgrounds. By far this was the noisiest. Relentless traffic noise. OK for stopover but if you want to stay for a few days try to get a site further away from the road. Sites other than concrete pads were all gravel, not a piece of green in sight. Pet walk is on the side of the busy entrance road and has little grass. You have to be constantly on the watch for traffic, and your puppy needs to like to pee on dirt or gravel. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

We didn't intend to stay here but our truck transmission went out and we were towed here while our truck was getting repaired. They were so gracious and sympathetic to our predicament. They were almost booked full for the Easter weekend but were able to accommodate us with a full hookup site. They were even willing to move our trailer into our site if the tow truck couldn't maneuver inside the park. This is a very clean park and all the utilities and WIFI worked well and they have nice shower/restroom facilities. We were not able to get a cable TV site but we received several stations on the antenna. After the weekend they moved us into a cable site. Since we were delayed getting home for a few days we needed to wash some clothes and they have a nice laundry. While highway & train noise was there it didn't bother us. There are many activities to do; a fishing lake, peddle boats, 2 pools, mini golf, rec. room, and playground and go next door for some great boudin. It is clearly a destination park for many from far and near. $42.50 and they gave us 2 free nights since we stayed the week. A great place to stay but very busy so reservations are recommended. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Older well-kept RV park. We were there for a rally and the staff was very friendly and helpful with area information and maps as well as check-in. They also closely monitored vehicles entering the park to keep nonresidents out, which we liked. They recommended several excellent eating establishments and the Cajun Woodstock music festival in a nearby community that we thoroughly enjoyed. The Wi-Fi service worked fine at our site. The sites were paved in the area we were in. You do need to watch for wandering ducks and their poop at the sites. There was filtered road noise but this was from both the freeway as well as the nearby very busy cross streets. Road noise was not a major concern to us. We would return if in that area. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice older campground right off highway with level sites. We got a pull through that was nice. It's a very convenient stop over. They also allow you to wash your rig. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is handy off I-10. A new roundabout corner was being constructed near the entrance so was congested, but will be better in the near future. Sites were adequate for a motorhome and tow car but a little tight for turning. Some sites border on a nice lake. Several restaurants were within a 1/2 mile walk or less away. Office managers were helpful with area information on vehicle service and restaurants. We would stay here again. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.
