Nice park but needs work
In past reviews they mention the owner being there and taking great pride in the park. That gentleman no longer seems to be here (perhaps he passed away or sold the property) and the park is now run by two young women, one of whom is in Texas. That being said, they were easy to reach by phone and very helpful.
There are still a fair number of folks on site who are here working at surrounding companies in oil and other commodities; I spoke today with a young man from Iowa who comes down to work a few times a year. There are also a couple full-timers here as well.
The park has come upon tough times, with at least half of the RV sites no longer usable. It looks like the gals are trying to get it back to its former glory but it?s a slow process.
We were lucky and got one of the pull-through sites with a cement pad. Everything works well and we are quite comfortable. I really hope they are successful in restoring the park to its previous state. It?s beautiful and peaceful here; lovely country.
Nice but crowded
We stayed here about 4 months, 200 spots half of them in the mud during rainy season, the laundry has 4 washers and 4 dryers, there isn't anyone ever in the office.
Your Experience Maybe Better
We made the mistake of staying here even though the park was essentially packed with full timers working on area oil and energy projects. It had poured rain for two days before we arrived and we were told that we would have a temporary space with full hook up on a gravel spot. That spot ended up being a lake. We were not certain where to park and no one would come over to give us directions. While we had water, cable and electricity, the sewer hookup was a portable container. They said they would hook it up and drain our RV, but they never did. It was not a big deal for me to hook it up, and they pulled it away and drained it. The huge lake of a parking spot was the biggest problem. There were three showers / toilet combos a fair swim away. There were no paper towels, so I guess no one washed their hands, but the showers were clean. If you get a permanent spot - many are cement pads - your experience will be better.
For a special treat, use the men's toilet off the TV room (not the shower combo). Flush it twice first. It fills with hot water, quite a sensation when sitting down. I guess that is Cajun plumbing.
The park is near several of the plantations, but if we go back, we will stay out further near I-10 at one of those RV parks, unless this one has real spots available.
Although there was no lake close by, it was a really nice place to stay. We stayed 3 nights and had a really nice time. Wifi worked great, cable too, and the dogs enjoyed their stay. I could tell the owners took great pride in their sites.
We love staying here. It has lots of character and the owner gives his heart and soul to make this old plantation and the area appealing. it's a bit of a hike to New Orleans but worth it to us
Felix Poche Plantation RV Resort
We heard about this resort in Florida from other campers. We made it a point to stop and stayed at the resort for two days. The owner personally parked us. We really appreciated his help. The sites are large and the electric is very strong. The clubhouse facility is large and spotless. Other RV guests like the resort very much and return from year to year. A great place to stay to see the plantations and the food in the area is wonderful. We will be back!
