Had to earn our stay
We are new to RVing and my wife signed up to get a free night at one of their locations. This one wasn't too far from the highway however the small town that it went through was kind of hard to drive through in the middle of the night. We were scheduled to have a pull through but somebody earlier took our pool through. So that left me backing up our brand-new fifth wheel at night in the woods. The only thing I can say is that the community came out to help another guy that was not new to fifth wheels was there to help me back up and the attendant did help us get to our spot. In the morning the park was nice dirt gravel roads lots of large trees lakes and other things I would imagine you were looking for in a park. The one contingent we had to do was listen to a 90 minute presentation both me and my wife had to be present. The sales man told us he was not a sales man I obviously was and it was a high-pressure sales meeting to talk about you joining there "club" The initial entry fee was anywhere between $20,000 and $30,000 with an annual fee between five and $700. After the 90 minutes me and my wife still did not get a price for the entry fee and we told him we had to go the salesman got a little angry with us but reluctantly signed us out for one free night. If we would've not done the presentation it would've cost us $60 to stay there for the night. Some of the amenities that they showed us seemed pretty rundown however the area was really nice they had a fishing pond ducks and walking paths. They were way off the highway you didn't hear any highway noise very quiet. The pool that they bragged about was run down there guesthouse was run down and painted weird colors their game room did have a nice pool tablebut otherwise was kind of liking their gym was rather pathetic and gloomy looking and they had a park for kids to play on. However even though we didn't pay anything for the night and left me and my wife with a bad feeling all day long. they wanted you to pay for all of your camping upfront for the next couple years and I had a presentation to tell you exactly how good it is they only had five parks available for these free nights of camping. For you to be able to get your money back you would have to do a lot of camping at their parks. When we left we did get some more free nights at There Park which we will take advantage of provided we do not have to go through a 90 minute presentation.
Stayed four nights in a motor home that is 38 feet.
Rate reflects a Coast to Coast membership rate.
A really nice place and they have a lot of activities.
A bit off the interstate but worth the extra ten miles.
Would stay again.
Love love love Abita Springs
Abita Springs has always been very good to me and my family, I just got back from another stay there and this is what I have to say: everyone must go! It is very quaint, nice landscaping, good sites for RVs. Also just added a new “Tiki Bar” which is great to have lunch at right by the pool, they serve hot dogs and hamburgers and things like that. The front office has always been very nice and we never have a problem booking our stays. The surrounding town is quite nice and has plenty of activities to do for adults and children. The resort is owned by Ocean Canyon who have been doing a lot of renovations since we first got our membership. The pool is nice and always clean, the cabin facilities are also nice and were just put in when we first got our membership (in 2009). There is a lake on the premises where we have seen a lot of different wildlife, it is very fun for birdwatchers. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place to stay, and it is less than an hour from New Orleans.
