Question Cajun Country

Where are some good places to visit and camp at in Cajun Country? Be traveling in a 43' motor home and towing. Interested in visiting some good sites and great food. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

We stay some at Palmento State Park, about 7 miles south do Abbyville. New park, and great facilities. Full hookups and big campsites.

We just stayed at the Cajun Palms a couple of weeks ago. It is right off I-10 near Laffette in Henderson. It is large RV park with all concrete pads. it is more like a resort that an RV park with a water park, bar and food. We were impressed

The last couple of times we went we stayed at Poche's Fish Camp in Breaux Bridge and we loved it and found it very reasonable. We are Passport America members. There is an excellent restaurant there called the Cafe de Amis and they have a great breakfast and Zydeco dancing on Saturday morning which I highly recommend.

In addition I would suggest the Blue Dog Cafe, Prejean's, Randol's (which has dancing), and Fezzo's in Scott. All are excellent and worth your time. If you like the music, then make sure you go to Events for info and try to see Geno DeLafose if you can.

It is a great place to eat, enjoy music and see the Cajun culture.

Nick

We lived at Cajun Palms in Henderson for about 1 1/2 years. That's my vote.

So glad you started this thread.

We're headed over that way the week after Memorial Day. I'd combed through all the old threads I could find here and was planning to ask the very questions you did. Thanks for doing it for me.

Have a safe, fun trip.

Betty's RV Park in Abbeville - Google it.......it's a place not to be missed. All of the above mentions are great too.

X2; another vote for Betty's. It doesn't have the amenities of the big parks, but you're guaranteed to find friendly people and to have a good time.

Oh, and call way in advance for reservations @ Betty's - the place is so popular, she rarely has an empty spot (and people are willing to wait - it's that much fun).

Chico state park is by far the most modern and beyond improvements you could imagine with Governor Foster in charge of the rebuild. Look in LA state park on net and it is in the middle of cajun food country at the right prices.
