Small city campground that offers very good value compared to other Louisiana camping options. Great shade and nice natural setting with stream running adjacent to campground. Careful of lower sites near stream, though, if weather is really rainy as flooding can occur. Really nice network of trails (some on raised boardwalk), two small playgrounds, and a very nice nature center. Campground road and sites are paved but most sites are pretty small and many require leveling. Could be a real challenge to bring in a big rig, especially if park is crowded and site choices are limited. As other reviewers mention, bring electrical and water hose extensions in case you get a site with oddly placed utilities. Verizon signal good; over-the-air TV reception very good. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Super convenient to I-10. Being a city park, there is plenty of shopping nearby. The neighborhood that you pass through to get to the park is nice.

One night stay, No service at office, filled out envelop and left money, Tight roads in and out, Site pad uneven, 50amp & water was good. Do not use dump station. Was very quite at night as there was only one 5th wheel in the park. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was great for a quiet, restful place for an overnighter on our way to another state. Very few other campers. A very nice ranger station located in the park and a nice trail (although we did not have time to explore.) I saw my first owl in nature here! We unfortunately had battery issues the following morning (a problem with our RV power converter), and the campground manager came to our rescue with a charger!

What a lovely park, beautiful trees. We saw a raccoon being a little overly friendly. It was only $20.00 a night, which is a great bargain. The road getting to the park is fine, it goes through a nice neighborhood. We hiked some trails, they were beautiful, but bring a stick to break the spiderwebs. Our site was asphalt but all sites need to be redone. The park road is narrow. The sites to the right when you enter the park seem to be better than the ones to the left. We did not use the restrooms. The staff was friendly. There is a dump station but no sewer. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We researched the RV campgrounds in the area and this was the best value at $20./nite. It is a county park and very quiet at this time of year (Feb). Only 3 of us in the campground so we had our pick of sites. Our campsite was a large pull through site and large paved area so easily accommodated our 35' foot RV and tow car. The other sites are various sizes. Park has some beautiful big oak trees. The campground manager was helpful and informative. There is an educational nature walk. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This beautiful campground has gotten a bad rap, perhaps because it was built in the 1960s and hasn’t really been upgraded since. However, it is quiet and lovely with sites separated from each other. Each site has water and electricity. The campsites are level concrete slabs big enough for our 29’ RV. The angle to get into them is a little awkward. Inside the loop of sites are enormous live oak trees dripping in Spanish Moss. It is part of a city park located in a middle class neighborhood. There is a key pad with a code to get through the front gates. They only take cash or checks. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was a major disappointment. We chose it based on earlier reviews but things were not as we expected. We have stayed in other city parks before and always found them clean, well-managed and navigable. Not so with this park. It was difficult to even tell where the sites were located. Nothing was marked well. Everything was tight and cramped and we had to use 2 other spaces just to get out of the site we finally got into. My guess is that this park was built many years before anyone realized that an RV would be longer than 18-20 feet, but no one wanted to turn away the business so they welcome all. We will definitely not return. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We'd like to say nice things about this park. After all, it is city sponsored and is only $13 a night, including water and power. Unfortunately, we can't say that many nice thing, other than it is $13 a night and there is water & power. Oh, wait, we can say that the park is beautifully wooded, it was quiet, and there is a lot of shade. The positive features end there. The camp host was uninterested at best, concerned with the football game playing on the radio, and not at all concerned with his job, potential customers, etc. The park has roads and pads that are almost a joke. Many/most of the pads are L shaped. The big part of the pad is approx 13 x 13 and then there is an approach pad that is about 7 x 12. Now, how many RVs do you know that are going to fit on that size/shape of pad? And then consider that the approach pad is on an incline. It's just nuts. The utilities have been updated with 50 amp and decent water connections, but the electrical posts are almost haphazardly located. So if you can find a site that works for your RV, you are very lucky. We saw some poor soul circling the park multiple times towing a reasonably sized trailer who kept trying for a spot that would fit his rig. It's not just big rigs that don't fit here. Maintenance is also a big concern. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but the asphalt pads are literally rotting and the picnic shelters are tetanus ready. We would score this park a couple of points lower if it weren't so cheap. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Good value for 50 amp and water back in site. I think it is a bit overrated through. We stopped on a Friday and it was busy, but not full. Had some young adults that seemed to use it for a gathering place, but we had no problems. Some might not like the fast traffic though. Sites vary is size a lot, the 40' was probably lucky to find a level site. But for the price it is an OK place. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night. There was only one other camper here when we stayed. There seemed to be a comprehensive nature study tour but we were late to take part. Rustic with tight turns for 40 footer. Nice, quiet, and shady with large Oaks just off of residential area. 30-50 Amp with water. No park attendant on arrival. Pick your own spot, pay when leaving. $13/night cash or check only. Convenient to Lafayette. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The pros are its location to tour Lafayette and surrounding towns. It is low off the road in a well treed area and that may make TV reception a problem. We have an analog TV with converter box and roof antenna and Fox came in fairly well the first 2 nights but the last night reception was terrible. There isn't much room between sites and if you have a good size rig you may have a difficult time getting in and out of sites due to closeness. Just outside the campground is a nice children park complete with swings, slides and more. Also there is a challenging disc golf course that is on the disc golf pro tour. On the grounds is a wonderful nature preserve with various boardwalks. For us the con is the leash law for dogs not enforced. Upon arrival there were 2 dogs running around and when we asked the manager if there were leash laws he said yes but did not go over to the person walking the dogs off leash. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small semi-urban RV park, run by the Lafayette parish. It's an excellent place to use as a central base for exploring the Cajun country. It was quiet while we stayed there on a long weekend. The management was helpful and friendly. Our satellite and Verizon aircard worked fine. Note that there are no sewer hookups. There is a network of nature trails, and the RV park is adjacent to a city park with lots of grass and sports fields for walking. A great little park! We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night. This campground is owned and operated by the local County (Parish) Parks & Recreation Department. It is a heavily wooded area which is conveniently located for visiting the ‘cajun’ attractions and for general shopping. And it is a delightful alternative to the commercial, tightly packed and noisy alternatives further south on U.S. 90. According to the gate keeper, most of their visitors are local people. Some of the sites are pull-through and all are equipped with water and electricity. Apart from the beautiful setting, it is a very basic facility. The men’s bathroom had only one toilet (a metal one with an integrated seat that cannot be raised). We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is not a destination park; however, for $13 per night, it's a good deal. It's run by Lafayette's Parks and Recreation Department. It's located about two miles from I-10. The campground road is narrow for a big rig but manageable. During our visit, the park was almost full on the weekend and empty during the week. The hookups were not conveniently located on our site (#51); we had to park the rig very close to the edge of the paved pad. The water pressure was higher than normally considered safe for RV plumbing. We used a pressure regulator. The sites are adequately spaced with a variety of shady trees. The Acadiana Park Nature Station is located in the park. We camped at Acadiana Park Campground in a Motorhome.
