Better than expected
This is a pretty empty stretch of I-10 to find a decent, no frills stop for the night. We were westbound hoping to go a little past Lafayette but ended up just needed something closer. Enter this campground. It was pretty crowded and seems to offer a few of the "resort" campground amenities. We were only interested in a place to camp overnight. The staff seemed to have their act together up to marshaling you in when you arrived. They also escorted you to your campsite, and annoyingly told me exactly how to park down to which direction to turn my steering wheel. I believe they were trying to help, but it was annoying nonetheless. The sites are all back in and ours was perfectly level, and we had to detach our 33' TT in order for our hoses to fit the hookups which is a minor concern for us but worth noting. They are a Good Sam's campground and only accept Cash, Debit Card and Checks. No credit cards. All things considered, not a bad campground.
Very large sites
Actually the sites are huge, particularly by private park standards. The park is very large and lies just across the levee from the Atchafalya canal. It is less than a mile south of I10, but you don't get any road noise.
The road is gravel, the sites are very narrow gravel with grass on the sides and at the end. The bathrooms were clean but old. Each (men and women) had 2 toilets and 2 showers, a pretty puny number for a park this large. There were lots of RVs that were clearly here for the season or perhaps they belong to people from nearby towns who come out of weekends.
The young woman who checked us in was brusque to the point of rude. Note: you cannot pay with a credit card. You can only pay with a debit card or cash. The sign said that checks were accepted, but they weren't accepting them the day we were there.
