When we called to make a reservation for a week, the office was insistent upon our coming to McGee's Landing first to pay for our week, sign a contract, and then take our money. After we did that, we were told to cross over the levee to the campground. Now I know why we were told to come to McGee's Landing, first. Upon our entrance to the campground we saw: 1. an old washing machine, 2. old tires, 3. empty beer bottles, 4. an old vehicle with its hood propped open, 5. massive amounts of personal trash, 6. an office that is closed and has an old worn out ice maker propped on the porch, 7. broken lawn chairs/other broken items, 8. other campsites that were under water that appeared to have sewage in them, 9. large equipment tearing up tree trunks. We parked our RV only to be approached by a massive sewer smell. There was mud everywhere. It was impossible to walk our dogs without being in mud or approached by stray cats. I will never stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well maintained campground, with 324 full hook ups and nicely angled sites with helpful and friendly staff at check in. Road is paved, and the pull through pad is long, level, and paved. We did not have to unhook our towed. Big rig access is good with plenty of space around the RV but not a lot of privacy, small trees as yet too small to give any shade, grass and picnic tables between sites, no views. Bathrooms are clean; I did not use the laundry. WiFi and cell are good. This campground really has it all and is really more for families and kids with its resort style pool, tiki bar, fishing ponds, water park, chalets, cabins, and grocery store. However, the strict 10:30pm curfew for the kids was never enforced. There are lots of restaurants and sightseeing close by. For us it was fine as a one night stopover, but we found it much too big and impersonal, with lots of activities we did not want or need. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very crowded and loud when we there. This was probably why the restrooms were so dirty. Site was small. Electrical did not work when we arrived. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice family park. There is a lot for a family to do although there is an extra charge for some of the activities. The pads are very level. The staff is constantly cleaning up and picking up trash bags at the sites. They have several sites that are connected for several RVs camping together to share a covered patio area which were nice. Although we did not use them, the restrooms and showers were spotless. I would highly recommend this campground especially for family groups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed overnight at this park, got a large pull-through site so we did not have to unhook. It was easy to get to off of I-10, park was very clean and well kept, sites are concrete and level. There appeared to be a lot of activities available. Although lakefront access is a little bit of a stretch as they are referring to a small decorative fishing pond on the property. The main negative for me was there were a lot of kids even in the middle of the week, but if you have children it is probably a great place to go. Very nice spot to pull off for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cajun Palms transforms from a quiet park with a couple ponds and many ducks to Red Necks on Parade on weekends. It seemed like each person in the resort was trying to play their music louder than the person next to them as well as blaring music from what I would call pimped up golf carts. Now personal opinion aside. The park is clean and well maintained. They put a wristband on you when you check in and you are supposed to wear it at all times. The wi-fi was useless on the weekends because it can not handle the volume of users. They also use blocking technology on the wi-fi, so many sites I use including Netflix, Hulu, Itunes Store, and Carbonite were blocked. I have the PDF page prints that state Cajun Palms has blocked this site for your safety and security. Moving on, the shower rooms were very clean. They only have one laundry open before 10:00 am that only has 4 washers. The hot tub was not turned on, and we were told we had to ask them to turn the heater on about 2 hours before we wanted to use the hot tub. The cable TV signal was weak so all we had were snowy channels to watch. The resort is nice, but it does have some issues. I would stay again, mid-week, but I would not come back for a Friday or Saturday night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level pull through handled my travel trailer easily. Had an escort to our site. Everyone on staff was friendly and cordial. Lots of activities and things to do. They had a band playing there this weekend. The WiFi was iffy at best but I'm not there to surf the internet anyway. I highly recommend this park and we will return to it frequently. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a well-maintained park with extras like the huge pool with swim-up bar. A lot of thought must have gone into the design of this park but it apparently wasn't done by anyone who ever owned an RV. The sites are very level and not too close together but are simply too short for a motorhome towing a car, or a truck towing a trailer longer than maybe 10 feet. You must unhook even if you have a pull-through site. The concrete interior roads are too narrow; navigating to a site is a squeeze between parked RVs. Even following the kid on the guide golf cart was a challenge. The advertised Wi-Fi didn't work and one of the nice big showers was full of mud. We stopped overnight during Mardi Gras weekend and there were unsupervised children and dogs running everywhere. Driving a decorated golf cart aimlessly around the park with loud music seemed to the thing to do. Many were driven by young kids with no adult on board despite signs that all drivers were supposed to be over 21 years of age. I didn't see a staff member that was over 21. We called for a reservation and when we got there they had never heard of us. They found a spot for us near a loud sewer pump station and it would have better if they hadn't. This park may be a good place to take your kids and let them run loose - not a good place for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a terrific park, but it’s the destination, not necessarily the surrounding area. There’s not a pool, there’s like a water park amusement area on site. The concrete sites and roads throughout the park are wonderful. The sites are spacious and very level. Close to the highway, but not much highway noise. Camp is impeccably clean. Sure there are downsides, but we couldn’t find many. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stop here going back and forth to Houston Tx. Have stayed several times. Very large park with every possible amenity. Plenty of things for the kids. Our first time was LSU vs Ala football weekend. Park had live band and lots of activity at pavilion with pool. It was fun and staff was able put us away from the noise. Sites are clean, level, easy to use. Thumbs up to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A destination park for families with children. Two swimming pools, small water park, miniature golf course, video arcade, exercise room, stocked fishing pond, cabin rentals. All sites are reasonably sized with level concrete pads, most sites are pull-through, roads a bit narrow for our 40' motor home. Reservations probably needed in-season (May-August) as staff say the campground is usually fully booked then. Small trees with minimal shade at each site. Wi-Fi was very slow despite campground being 2/3 empty. Good cable TV. Noticeable highway noise (I-10 1/4 mile away). We stayed overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fabulous RV park with great amenities, clean common areas (pool, showers, restrooms) and a friendly staff. I stayed at 14 different parks on this trip and this one ranked #2. A cajun restaurant, in walking distance, was an added bonus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great kid-friendly campground. The pools and water park kept the kids busy all day on all three days we were here. There is also an adult area pool with bar that keeps the parents occupied as well. The sites were level and the grounds were very well kept. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you have kids and like a kid park, then is for you. But if you like some shade trees, and quiet time after the sun goes down, find another park. The 10pm quiet time is a joke. We will not be back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great campground, especially for kids. Our site was directly across from the small water park there on site. We were there all week and for the most part it wasn't crowded, until the weekend, of course. We were in site 156 which seemed to be the only site that flooded after the rain. We had an inch of water when surrounding sites had already dried up. The showers and bath house was great, easy access all around. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fun place to stay, especially for families. Large, well maintained campground. Level, concrete sites with ample room and picnic tables. Clean restrooms and laundry. Plenty to do with beach volleyball, mini golf, three pools, large hot tub, numerous bars and food concessions.Party atmosphere that I'd expect in a respectable Cajun establishment! Good eating nearby. Rate was for Good Sam. We stayed here two nights just passing thru. Recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding campground! It has everything; however many of the attractions were not open yet due to season. It is a little tricky to find; no highway signs, and as you turn at the campground, it almost appears that you are going down a dead end road. It seems that they are building a new entrance closer to the main road. Wi-Fi and cable were excellent. Great exercise room, which is becoming important to us as we travel all day. We definitely will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pool at this park is amazing. It has a kid area that is second to none and a swim up bar for adults. The sites are fairly close together but are concrete and level. This park is only a few years old so the trees do not provide much shade yet. The staff is very helpful and the store here is well stocked. There is a movie theater, game room, and weight room in the pavilion. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed at. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice. The sites were concrete and level. Escort to site. Security gates. Nice landscaping. Outdoor facilities were not open due to season. Convenient to great Cajun restaurant. This was the only park we could get into due to influx of construction workers, and we were very happy. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 10 days and it is a beautiful, immaculately clean park. Nice size sites too. We were here for a Boucherie where they killed a hog and had a live band which was extremely loud but it seemed all the RV's were local Cajuns who camp here regularly and they had a great time, dancing and drinking. I would give Cajun Palms a 10 if it hadn't been for several dogs running lose. Pet owners were very lax in keeping pets under control and picking up after them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best parks for layout and amenities. Great activities for children and adults. They even have a movie theater-$5 includes drink and popcorn. The park rents golf carts or you can bring your own (for a fee) to make it easier to get around the park or decorate in for the current holiday parade. On this trip we enjoyed live music and free food. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge RV park spread over something like 22 acres. There is a central area that has a gigantic pool, zero-entrance kids pool, hot tub, two bars, snack bar, game room, work-out room and (apparently) party facilities. Unfortunately, due to the time of year, not much of this was open, The pools, hot tub, bars were all closed up. My husband did use the work-out room and enjoyed that. The site we were in was a pull-through and it was plenty roomy. We wondered, though, why in such a huge park, with so few people, they had the few of us that were there lined up one after the other. It's always nice to have a spare site in between you and the neighbor as long as there are sites empty (and there were MANY). The park is gated and secure, and the staff was fine, though the front desk person seemed very harried and brusque. The laundry room was neat and functional and the restroom in the same building was huge, but I did notice the showers were pretty dirty (several days in a row). The area is very convenient to Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, and we also did day trips to St. Martinville and New Iberia as well as Avery Island. Lots to do and very scenic area. We also did a Swamp Tour on Lake Martin that was wonderful given the time of year. We would absolutely stay here again. I can only imagine how much fun the park itself is when the weather is nice and there are families and kids there to enjoy the gorgeous pool area. Even without, though, there is so much to do in this area. My favorite in all of the south, so far! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Good Sam discount. Great RV park, right off I-10 at exit 115, about 40 miles west of Baton Rouge. Nice staff, escort to site, which is a level, concrete pad. Picnic table at site, no grill. Two pools, hot tub, mini-golf, fishing ponds, small water park for the kids, playground, volleyball court. Some grass and small trees. Would return when traveling through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has it all. The pool, hot tub, Tiki Bar, huge rec hall. The campground is very well planned out, streets are wide, campsites are very good size, everything is neat and well kept. We have stayed here four times in the past but each time only for one night. We definitely need to stay for a more extended time in the future. Our stay was over Thanksgiving Day so there were lots of families and children. No issues there as everyone was well behaved. Just keep an eye out for little ones on bikes and skate boards. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hated the place. They put a wrist bracelet on everyone like being a patient in a hospital. Large, large park with everyone running around in golf carts. Biggest hazard are speeding employees in carts. They make their money selling booze and food. Could not wait to leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They should rename this place "The Concrete Jungle." This is no campground, this is a resort. No shade, golf carts everywhere, staff was no help with curfew, or the kids and drunks on the golf carts. Hopefully, I never go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed overnight on our way to Florida from Texas. Nice park with all concrete level pads, good electricity and water pressure. Good elbow room between sites. It is a family oriented park with lots of kids and activities for them. Lots of golf carts cruising. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pool was not as clean as I would have liked, but everything else was what I would expect from a 5 star resort! Beautiful clean concrete sites with well groomed grass. Many cabins available too! Mosquito's were bad after dark, but I would expect that in swamp land! Kids will have so much fun in the water park, miniature golf and volleyball court! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big park with a lot of people. Golf carts run amok. There are 333 RV spots, and there were probably 290 golf carts. If you are not a fan of golf carts, stay away. No shade whatsoever. VERY cool zero entry pool; great for the kids. Very cool swim up bar; didn't get to enjoy it since this was a family trip. Close to the interstate and surrounded by good restaurants. 18 hole mini golf course - didn't get to enjoy. Very nice, unique covered RV parking area. Definitely recommend if you can get one. Nice, level, paved spots. All roads in the park are paved. Check-in reminded me of the last time I was in Las Vegas and was trying to check in on Friday evening; very crowded and busy. Overall, huge park with a very cool pool area. Kids swimming area was under construction when we visited, so we may revisit this park later in the summer since it was so close to home. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had read the previous reviews about the loud partying on Friday and Saturday, so we arrived on Sunday. Park was nearly empty, but loud music still playing at the pool. All was quiet by 8 pm and we had a pleasant stay. Everything is clean and well kept. A few long term sites, but neat. Big rigs towing: Call ahead. Check in was fast, escort to site and we had one of the very few long pull through sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This has all the luxuries of a resort. Palm trees, 2 pools, casino, sno cones, store, and tiki bar. Kids had a great time, and wife and I really enjoyed the resort as well. Highly recommend Cajun Palms. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is in very good condition and well maintained. The problem we had was the Wi-Fi. It didn't work at our site and we were told there would be someone coming to the campground to fix it but it didn't happen. The two days we were there. Charges for more than 4 people in a campsite of $10 per additional person are high as are most of the other activities available with the exception of the daily movie. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second stay at this park. The last time we were here on the weekend and it was "party central" with lots of loud music and golf cars everywhere. This time we stayed during the week and it was very pleasant and quiet. This is a really clean facility with concrete pads and roads. One problem encountered was that we lost all water one morning at about 8:00am. My neighbor said he contacted the front office and was advised that they had turned off the water in order to perform maintenance. It would have been nice to receive some warning from the office if they knew they were turning off the water, as this occurred during the morning when people are showering and preparing breakfast, etc. This facility has the potential to be one of the best parks in the country, but they are just missing a couple of key elements. With all of that said, we will stay here again, but will continue to avoid it on the weekends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full scale resort class park, with pools, spa, bar, fishing ponds and kid park. All new construction, some still underway. Concrete roads and sites, grass everywhere else (unfortunate amount of burrs in it!) On Saturday night a lot of partying, but quiet during the week. Some road noise from the Interstate. Great restaurant next door. Be sure to take a swamp tour in the nearby Achafalaya. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed two nights, had only planned for an overnight stop, staff was very friendly and helpful, led us to our large level spot with a golf card and offered to help us set up. Well maintained grounds, for warmer months large pool with swim up bar, well equipped weight room, very good Cajun restaurant outside park. Easy fuel stop at Interstate exit 20 which is only 1/2 mile from park. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you want peace and quite do not camp here on a weekend. Apparently, weekend quiet hours begin Monday because they aren't enforced on the weekend. Golf carts and kids are constantly running around and loud music is everywhere. The park itself is quite nice with lots of amenities. The sites are level concrete pads but aren't very wide. Interior roads are narrow and cars and golf carts are parked everywhere. For some reason, this park insists on people wearing wristbands for security, probably the dumbest rule I've ever seen in a park. Too many rules, too much noise and too crowded. We won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
True Arcadian hospitality will delight visitors from "up north". Plenty of outdoor cooking going on gives visitors the constant smell of something Cajun cooking. Owner blends and mixes w/the visitors. We are all "regulars" that get on the waiting list. He caters heavily to children at Halloween and all during year. Golf carts advised due to bicycles. Great activities, swim up bar, 2 pools and hot tub; nice store; plus neighboring restaurant will pick you up at your campsite for great seafood. Can't recommend it highly enough. A fun place for all ages. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have to agree with the other reviewers, in that this park is like a resort. Excellent staff service. The main attraction of the park is their pool, which is very nice. All sites are concrete and the park itself is well maintained. Really like how you can get your bracelet scanned and put items on your tab to pay later. If your looking for a wilderness experience, this is certainly not the park for you. Overall a beautiful park, had a great time swimming and riding the golf cart. Make sure you book soon, the weekends are constantly booked. Would definitely come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Once again: AWESOME!! They have it named correctly. It is a resort rather than a campground. The Caribbean style pool has the swim up bar. I guess if I had to complain about anything, it would be the very crowded pools. They'll soon open the other half of the park, and the pools will really be crowded. But they say that a fourth pool is in the works. The 3 existing pools are very large, as well as the 25 person saltwater jetted hot tub. Even though everything is located at the center of the park, a golf cart is recommended for those on the outlying sites. We had trouble making reservations for 4th of July 2011. So, make your reservations well in advance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay, this park is not for you. This park is weekend party central. The amenities are great, clean restrooms and shower facilities; two pools one with a swim up bar. DJ and planned activities on Saturdays, you will have a good time along with hundred's of your new "closest friends". This is a large park and it has not reached it's capacity in available sites (new section under construction) but it has reached it's capacity in facilities, as everything was very crowded. Plan on renting or bringing a golf cart to get to the pool and activity center. There is a great Cajun restaurant nearby (by golf cart) or they will deliver to your site. As I said come here for the party, not tranquility. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice clean park with concrete roads and sites. I was a bit put off by their 4 pages of rules and policies, and by their requirement that all visitors must wear a wrist band for identification. I know this is for security purposes, but we have visited many other parks with great security that do not require you to wear an ID bracelet at all times. It just seems silly to me. All of the employees we had contact with were very friendly, but it all seems very structured. We had a few problems with water pressure dropping, but we were here on a very crowded Saturday, so it could just be a demand issue. They had a DJ playing very loud music by the pool and it seemed there were golf carts everywhere. We will probably try this park again, but I think we will avoid it on the weekend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Everything about this campground was top notch. I loved the security of the gate access & the fact that they designate someone to assist you to park (great for night arrivals). There are lots of rules, but I think that's a positive thing, and it shows the owners want this campground to be around and be in great shape for years to come. The pool area is unbelievable; it looks like something you'd see in the Caribbean. The weekend we camped there was a band and fun was had by young and old. However, when 10:30 rolled around there was a security guard riding around to ensure everyone had parked their golf carts and was actually quieting down. The Wi-Fi was strong (and free) and the store was fully stocked. The ladies at the reservation desk were very helpful. It could not have been a better experience. I highly recommend it, wait…I take that back, as reservations for the summer are filling up fast. You really shouldn’t go there. LOL We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second trip to this park. Cannot say enough about the staff and the grounds. Very clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was sporadic at best, that is my only complaint. The campground is off the highway and surrounded by large fields used to harvest sugarcane. Great band on the weekend. If you are planning on staying over the weekend I would recommend calling ahead, or you'll be competing with the locals. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First let me say this is a gorgeous park - beautiful new buildings, pool/recreation area, landscaping, paved roads and sites. Now the problems: the roads are not wide and all the sites are too short for a big rig. We are 45 feet long with car trailer and had to drop the trailer just to fit into their longest spots. The resort was designed for fifth wheels and travel trailers; the waterfront sites are back-ins only. Only half the resort is finished; the left side as you look at the site map is not done. Hopefully they will change their plans and design long pull thrus for big rigs. The resort is very busy with locals on the weekends and is very crowded when full as there is not a lot of area between sites. Unfortunately, one leg of our 50 amp hookup was not working and we had to change sites for the second time. Their Wi-Fi was poor, both Verizon and AT&T air cards worked well. iPhones were 3G. There is nothing tall enough to block your satellite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park to stop at while traveling the I-10 route; almost deserted when we stopped there for an overnight. Internet reservation system was not working so had to call; maybe it is fixed now. Telephone rep had to really search around to see if they had a pull-thru site available which seemed a bit odd in reality since the place was near empty on arrival! Lots of rain in area but our site did not have a problem. Did not many of the sites that had heavy water standing on the concrete pads so site selection could present a problem at times. Only real drawback was noise (loud, booming bass) from the nearby Crawfish House. Not sure if they have a band every night but if so, you better be a really hard sleeper or have a good sound machine in rig, else you will be kept awake very late. Not good if you are just getting some rest overnight before heading out on road again. Somewhat "pricey" but having traveled this route for years, a much better visit that most other places to stop over. Glad it is there and would stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still a relatively new park and they are still improving things. They have added a lot of concrete to the sites since we were there last year and it really helps. They also now require bracelets when it is a busy time so they can keep track of people. Overall it is the best park in the area or within a 75 mile radius. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Several of our friends have stayed here and raved about this place. We had 3 campers together and LOVED it. There are no shade trees yet but the trees are small and in time will give good shade. The sites are all concrete with ample grass areas in between. There are golf carts everywhere but didn't pose a problem. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool/tiki bar area is outstanding. They really cater to families by having activities for the kids, a playground, and mini golf, as well as beach volleyball. The Wi-Fi is available but sometimes spotty. This is a great place to camp. We can't wait to go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park with an amazing pool, tiki bar, and volleyball court. Wish there were trees, but it's nice having the concrete too. The only real complaint I have is the lack of speed control on the numerous golf carts whizzing around! It seems as though everyone has a golf court and NO-ONE minds the speed! My kids (4 & 6) were almost hit several times by speeding carts. Other than that, this park is a definite 10! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Have stayed here many times and I only live 15 miles from here. Really nice weekend getaway. Good location just off the interstate, large sites and beautiful pool/clubhouse area. Nice restaurant at the front that will come and pick you up if you like. AWESOME! Everyone extremely nice and helpful. Can book your site online so you can get the one you like. I like this feature. Will be back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is in it's 2nd year and there were plenty of good things to report. The grass has finally taken root which helps with the pancake type of soil and mud on the grounds. Many of the sites have been enlarged with cement and a majority have been turned into pull through sites. The owners have also installed a putt-putt course as well as a large jacuzzi at the pool area. These are nice touches that show the owners are putting big money back into the campground. Now onto the tough news. The campground would benefit greatly with tougher controls on the amount of drinking that takes place on weekends. It's still true, the locals still view the grounds as a park-n-drink. Just a couple of well placed, your-outta-here and it would change the complexion completely. If you have visions of sitting by the pool in the evening to relax on a Friday or Saturday, you can forget about it. The Saturday night karoke music drew plenty of local visitors and made the pool area unattractive, loud, and rowdy. They are "this" close to having a perfect campground. I cant figure it out. They have so much money invested and such a nice campground. I still believe with time, the owners will put the controls in place to reign in some of the drunkenness. Most well traveled campers will know when to stay on their sites, but first time visitors may be surprised by all the commotion. PS: ONE SUGGESTION: Hire a professional pool person and get the water clear. The milky water just looks nasty. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There is lots of room for improvements. Make sure you camp far away from the cabins. That seems to be party central. The security is great at night. No one can get in without going through guard shack or risking tire damage. They need more trees for shade!! The pool is very crowded, too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for 6 days in June. This park should rate a 10 for its facilities but it has become a kiddie park where kids are allowed to run wild and this seems to be encouraged by the park's management. The pool was so cloudy that our kids would not go swimming even though the temperature was close to a 100 degrees. The cabins seem to attract the party animal types and that appears to be part of the problem. We watched as groups of young adults and children staying in the cabins had a food fight throwing barbeque chicken and sausages at each other, leaving a mess in the street. We have reservations in August that we booked in February. We now find out that weekend is going to be another "super soaker" weekend where the kids are allowed run wild and hose down everyone they see with their super soaker water guns. Park management says if you don't want to get wet, stay in your RV. Yes, that's what we are paying $40.00 per night for. We usually go to Lafayette for the fine dining and dancing. I can just see my wife getting hosed down when we are on the way out for the evening. I will be canceling those reservations even though I will still get charged for one nights stay. There are other good campgrounds in the area that have some consideration for their guests and do not encourage delinquent behaviors. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a week here and during the week it was great. The weekend was packed, primarily with locals. Everyone, including the park has golf-carts. The campground doesn't have worthwhile security. Drunks driving the golf carts, open containers, children and teens unsupervised, and an all day Saturday event where if you weren't wearing one of their red shirts you got blasted with a super soaker. No shade trees anywhere to be found. Next time we visit our granddaughter we will make use of a different campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean, nice pool, will be a lot nicer when the trees grow out and give shade. If they do enlarge and add the planned section they are going to need another pool as the one they have is at capacity with the half of the park that is complete. A lot of golf carts but not bad with traffic and all. Nice if there were more activities for kids and if every site had a picnic table, not all do. We didn't have one, called and were told one would be delivered and it never showed up. Overall very nice campground we will camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We totally loved this park and very much enjoyed our stay. The entire staff as well as owner were very pleasant. We had no problems whatsoever and no complaints either. We will be returning to this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
We stayed here one year ago and gave the park an 8 and thought it had a lot of promise. Now a year later, I was concerned about staying here again after the negative reviews. However, our Friday over night stay was very pleasant. The park was completely booked. The crowd is younger families and lots of golf carts. Management seems to heeding the negative advice as I saw management and employees constantly. New rules have also been implemented. We enjoy it as an overnight stay on I 10. The exit where it is located has many great eating options. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a class A RV Resort. The staff are friendly and helpful. You must book in advance for this park, because it books up fast. It does have a lot to offer the whole family. More Bath Houses are in the works to be built but usually really not a problem. They have something to offer everyone, and if you cant find it here, they have a lot to offer in town. If you don't feel like cooking the Crawfish Town Restaurant will deliver to your site. How wonderful is that. Of course so many people are out and about an cooking you should not go hungry.

Extremely confusing layout. Roads are only about 10 feet wide with sites on each side. Lots of campers park with awnings out into the roadway making it almost impossible to pull your rig through without hitting them. Sites are close together. Very difficult to navigate the narrow roads when park is crowded due to very odd layout. This is a new campground and the grass areas are not established yet. In heavy rains, the grassy areas turn into mud. Very difficult for pet walking, etc. We had reserved a pull-thru site, but were given a back-in upon arrival (only staying 3 days). Called the owner and he was very accommodating and found us a pull-thru site that would hold our 40 foot fiver and tow vehicle. Would stay again if in the area, only because it appears to be the best alternative. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here approximately 2 weeks. We liked that it was a newer park; free cable with lots of channels and Wi-Fi for a fee. The site pads were all paved, and even though small concrete area, the sites were spacious between each other. The park seemed to understand that due to design we had to park a little on the grass for lack of room on the concrete pad. It appeared they were paving some sights to extend them. Rain makes for muddy sites; they did have maintenance shoveling etc. and working to keep sites as nice as possible. I noticed the weekends did fill up with LSU fans, families, etc; but kids were taken on train rides around the park; tiki bar had a crowd, but didn't bother us; if this is a concern I recommend asking for a site toward the back away from the action; the park is large enough with many sites. The Crawfish Restaurant next door delivers to the sites, and was good. No shade if that's a concern for you. We had no problems and I would add the owner/staff were extremely nice and helpful. The store is nicely stocked and convenient. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have to agree with the other reviews it is more of a free for all then a campground. I think the "Park and Drink" was the best explanation so far and it is not a good place for a family to camp or any one that wants to relax it is for the party crowd and shows.Very disappointing not at all what we where expecting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A new RV park, although I would not call this a campground, it is better described as a "park and drink". The park is a favorite of the locals, which is great for the owners. You will find over 1/2 of the weekday campers uninhabited until either Thurs or Friday evenings. It is super that the park has full hook ups with cable. Whoever designed the park surely did not have experience with actual campers. The pads were short and skinny. You have to either park in front of your camper or park in a empty pad if close. In fact, it appears that every site has become a pull through being how the assistant will lead you to your site by traveling the wrong way to enter at the rear of your site. As with the previous post, I agree that the pool is far too small to accommodate the campers even at 35% capacity. At 50% capacity, the pool basically looks like a wave pool at a water park, people just standing in place. Equally, the art of smoking while lounging in the pool was disgusting. I notice several drunken ladies with their loungers inside the pool using the water as a ashtray. The bath houses were very clean, but if they had ventilation, it wasn't being used. One shower in the South LA heat turned the place into a steam house. Cajun Palms sends you via email a extensive rules list. Carts, parking on grass and curbing you animals were emphasized although it was ridiculous what was being ignored. Children driving carts, dog droppings all over the place and when the locals arrived, it was not uncommon to have 3-4 vehicles, on the grass, at each site. Lastly, and most important, the place turns into a virtual swamp when it rains. The grounds are pancake flat with no drainage whatsoever. This is a good park to spend two nights in your camper during the school year, but not beyond that. With all being said, I would return for a weekend trip. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our third trip here, and I have to say that it will be the last for a while. The campground is nice and the pool is nice with the swim up bar but I think the golf carts are out of hand. Three times over the weekend I was almost run over by a golf cart driven by someone that was not paying attention. At one point my wife had to scream at someone who was driving, and not even looking, just missing us. Although the pool is really nice, it is not big enough to support the campground when it is full. Also, it was not very enjoyable to be at the pool with all of the smokers there. People were actually smoking IN the pool! I'm usually not one to complain but that was just nasty. I know the park is new and the owners are trying to make everyone happy but at the very least they could support their own rules. If this is your crowd, You will more than enjoy yourself. If not, well, it kind of makes for an unenjoyable weekend. I think we will just go back to our old favorite just down the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Terrific rv resort. Great pool. Great location. It would be a ten but the layout is not great ,and I saw the problems others complained about concerning small sites. I had to drive through the grass to get out as we left early one morning and other rigs prevented us from getting out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a work in progress, as it is very new. They had an architect do the layout, but I don't think he had any knowledge of RV parks. So, to solve the problem they are adding more concrete at the sites to make them better. The management is very accommodating, and will do whatever it takes to make your stay pleasant. The rate reflects the weekly rate. Their swimming pool is simply amazing. It is the largest pool of any RV park I have seen. We will be back for a month next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a brand new park. The roads in the park are very narrow, However, Keep in mind that it is a work in progress and they are correcting some of the mistakes as they go, and learn. The Pool is gorgeous, complete with water fall coming from the upper balcony. They have live DJ's on the weekend with dancing around the pool area. All of the sites are concrete and pretty level. I had a little trouble getting my 40 footer in the site without doing a little landscaping. We were quickly moved to a pull-thru as they had plenty of room available this weekend. There is a game room for the kids, on-site movie theater, and plenty of bike riding opportunities. There are 2 ponds stocked with fish, (catch and release) and a number of sites along the ponds edge. Cabins were nicely done and clean. Only half of the park is completed but still plenty of room. The only down side I can see so far is the narrow roads. Other than that, we had a wonderful weekend with friends old and new. We camped here 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 here 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 here 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 here 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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground that is easily accessible from I-10 in the Atchafalaya Basin. The staff is very friendly and you are close to Baton Rouge and Lafayette. There were plenty of shade trees and the camping spaces weren't too close together. We went in the summer and enjoyed the swimming pool every day that we stayed. The bathroom/bathhouse/laundry facility was clean and right next to the pool. There was did have some playground equipment; however, it didn't look to be kept up and there were a large amount of ant piles around that area. There were a lot of golf carts that were cruising the campground and at times they were loud, especially when they were making their beer runs to the little store just down the road. I would recommend this campground, especially if you take in some of the local attractions (like air boat rides,etc.) even the Visitor's Center at this exit is very nice, clean and informative with some interactive things for kids. It was also a great place to take some really great pictures! Overall, we would go here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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 here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is recovered from recent hurricanes, including Ike and Gustav. Owners are very present and involved with management. Staff is friendly without being invasive. Although there are several full time residents, everyone obeys the rules. Very family oriented, but still maintains a quiet restful air. Park is kept clean...they do escort you to your site and help you get set up. We've stayed here several times and plan several more visits in the near future. But get reservations..esp around the holiday weekends...they fill up. Park is popular with Lafayette and Baton Rouge residents looking for a quick get away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I gave this park a 5 only because they recently experienced major damage due to hurricane Gustav. We were lucky to be able to stay here as most campgrounds were booked with hurricane Ike evacuees. In better times, this could be a nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spacious sites for a private campground and near I-10 interstate between Lafayette, LA and Baton Rouge, LA. Staff is friendly and will generally guide you to your site. The owner is very particular about the lawns and littering. If someone is frying food or boiling crawfish he requests that you leave your pot at the end of your site near the road, and they will dump and rinse it in the back. This is done to avoid killing the grass. There is a pool, but can be only used for a fee along with a miniature golf course. The only negatives are 2-3 pull through sites, a lot of full time campers, and very very strict reservation policy...so beware. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The scenery was great, very lush and lots of wildlife to photograph. Bring lots of towels or be prepared if it rains, there is lots of muddy area so bring a rug. Lots of shady area and the campground has gatherings and lots of activites in the pavillion area, seems every weekend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice, shaded park with a friendly staff that escorts you to the site, and helps with backing in. We camped with 4 other campers, and the staff was able to group us together. The sites are grassy but our site was not very level. The sewer hookup is elevated and at an odd angle, making it difficult to drain tanks without "walking the hose" several times. Fire rings and picnic tables at each site. Activities scheduled throughout the year. Playground, putt-putt, pool etc., to keep the kids busy. We will stay here again. This is also a Good Sam campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It's a nice campground with friendly staff. They even helped me back into my spot. First complaint I have is that they charged me for having 2 extra kids. And one was a baby. Another is that they made me take down a small tent that we used for a play pen. They said I don't want to know how much extra that would cost. One last thing, don't plan on washing clothes because the people staying on the permanent camp sites guard the washer and dryer. They should have seperate facilities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We noticed only 106 sites, of those, 62 are permanently occupied ( mostly by weekend visitors) with that said,this is a nice campground. It is well maintained, the spaces are large and everything is very clean. The staff was very helpful & friendly. It is located off the freeway about .8 of a mile with a large state visitor center located at the same exit (#121 of Hwy 10). Very easy to get to and from and conveniently located for seeing the sights in the area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice park with spacious grassy sites and mature shade trees. Most sites are back-in and on grass. Lots of sites are occupied by long-term residents with many units serving as weekend fishing and hunting camps for locals. Just off the Interstate on the edge of the swamp and near a state tourist information office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground. Whole area very well maintained. Arrived after 7:00 pm and had park employees stay late and lead us to our site, help light the site, help us back into our site, and help me level the camper. Was very impressed by the service and it was well received after a long day of driving. The only reason the park did not receive a 10 was the number of permanent/long term campers. It was not a detraction as all of them were very neat and well kept and very friendly, it is just that they seemed to have most of the "best" sites occupied. Will definitely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We found the campground to be well taken care of, neat, clean and overall a quiet peaceful atmosphere. We were treated well by the employees and owners as well as given help in finding our site and setting up our camper. We will camp there again as they also have wireless internet access. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

While camping at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground I was impressed with the concern the staff shows to their customers. I camp every year during their Fourth of July celebrations and have been coming since July of 2003. During a power outage in July of 2004 the owner and staff went to each site asking the campers to shut down their air conditioners so that when the power came back on their units would not be damaged. This impressed me as it showed they were concerned for their customers RVs and campers. I will continue to camp here as they continually make improvements as well as keep the campground safe and very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice & Quiet campground. Employees are very helpful in escorting you & parking your rv. The campground is very clean. Only concern was the owner went site to site asking everyone to use their air conditioners only at night due to high electricity bill. This was unbelievable, especially when paying 24.94 a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground in the cajun country. Just off the I10 exit 121. The country road to the park is narrow and in need of repairs. In the park, the sites are grass and gravel, but some patios are concrete for the full timers. The sites are large and scattered. The workcamper led us to site and help set up. Enjoyed the park for a home base while touring Cajun country for food, music and culture. This campground is on a island in the swamp. Owners live on site and keep grounds clean. Some supplies in office camp store, but a mile down the road is another country store. The owners had a Thanksgiving dinner for all campers. On many Saturday nights they have dances with DJ's. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Really nice campground. Nice pool ($1 extra per day per person for pool). Small putt putt golf. Grass in this campground is very well kept up. Most sites have shade for at least some part of the day. About 1/3rd or so of the sites appear to be members that are either full-timers or campers that go here on most weekends. Roads are mostly gravel, and sites are mostly grass, but very level. Mosquitos were not a problem compared to some of the other campgrounds in S. Louisiana - probably because they have their own mosquito control that is applied on weekends. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The staffis very friendly. We got there after hours, but since they were still around, they showed us to a site and got us settled in. About 90% of the sites are shaded. Lots of trees. Sites were gravel but level. Interior roads are gravel and paved. All the sites are very large. You are not crammed together here.Easy access off of I-10 (exit #121). If you don't have your bug spray, don't stop here. The campground is in the Atchafalaya swamp basin and can get muddy. About half of the sites appeared to be permanently occupied, but there weren't any old rickety trailers. They do accept reservations, but with a no refund policy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice CG just off I-10, between Baton Rouge and Lafayette. Clean bathhouses (only one in CG though), nicely shaded with lots of grass and open spaces. Sites varied but most were spacious but not screened from the others. Some sites appeared a little difficult to back into because of trees and placement of utility posts. Gravel interior roads in good condition. Mini-golf, small clean pool, playground. Staff are very friendly! Very quiet considering only 3/4 mile off interstate. About 30 mins. to either Lafayette (Cajun area) or Baton Rouge (state capital and shopping!).
