The owners of this RV Park are some of the nicest I've met yet. The showers, bathrooms and laundry room are immaculate. There's a book exchange and a TV in the room off of the laundry room. We had a problem with the sewer and it was fixed within two hours. We stayed here one week in February of 2014: the area had suffered heavy rains for quite some time, so the ground was saturated. We got stuck in the mud, but four or five people staying at the park, as well as the owner, came and helped us out. The downside here was I-10 which was right next door and very loud all hours of the day and night: my husband had wear earplugs in order to sleep. Due to the sad state of Louisiana's roadways, we probably wouldn't go through Louisiana again in our travels. But, if we did, we would stay at Pioneer Acadian RV Park.
Stay anywhere but here. This place is a cramped filthy mess, filled with run-down FEMA trailers, and right next to the horrible-smelling oil refineries. At the entrance is a run-down convenience store that looks like crack-ho central. The inside of the park and the motel were no better. Each site had sewer vent stacks sticking out of the ground emitting noxious smells at eye level. I wouldn't stay there if they paid ME $20 a night.
This is the RV park to go to if you enjoy community activities, art, and bluegrass music. Though the sites were small, the park was well laid out. There's a resident artist there who makes everything look so relaxed and inviting. While we were there, there were several talented seasonal resident musicians who loved to get together Thurs, Fri, and Sat evenings to play blue grass and country music. There were weekly potlucks and Poker-Walks. All this really brought me out of my shell. Downtown Cedar Key is a mile walk down the road. If you go, make sure to stop at Kona Joe's and Away From The World Cafe. Both places are relaxing and serve great coffee. We stayed for a whole month and the daily rate came out to $20, which is not unreasonable. And the name Sunset Isle is very fitting. You have not seen a sunset until you've seen it at Sunset Isle RV Park. We will be back.
What a beautiful place! So many trees and right on Chassahowitzka River. Near the south bend in the river is a beautiful spring to swim in. We saw a family of manatee one day, and heard owls and foxes every night. Lots of good red fishing. The sites were spacious and well shaded. The only negatives were the no-see-ums, and the ubiquitous mud when it rained, and the very expensive washers and dryers ($2.25 each). Will be back.
