Nice park, a hidden gem, run by local people. It is about 5 miles off the freeway right before crossing into Texas. We have stayed here a couple of times. It can be busy on weekends with local folks, but very quiet during the week. many waterfront sites - the Sabine river, good utilities and a dump station, perfect for an overnight or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground with lots of things to do for both adults and children. There is the Sabine River, with fishing or boating, and a nice playground for kids. They have a collection of exotic deer and a few goats. There a large pavilion an several cabins available for rental. The Niblett's Bluff Church Museum is adjacent to the park and as well as a very interesting historic cemetery beside that. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful little park with camping, day use, pavillions for rental, fishing, boating, and even a small animal park area with goats, deer, sheep, and burros when we were there. The staff was pleasant and the park very peaceful. We only stayed 1 night as we had to be in Covington, LA the next day. Would definitely stay again. Downside was lack of internet access, no swimming, and many of the sights weren't very level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here frequently. Approximately 30 miles from Lake Charles in a quiet country
setting. Park hosts enforce the rules. Only problems ever encountered wer mosquitos/gnats and a stolen ice chest. Can get busy on weekends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a easy on off by thruway rv park. Its close by a tiny casino. Easy pull thru's make it nice. If you back up by the fence its only $10 and the pull thru's are $16. When you call the number the man lets you know on a recorder how many spaces are left for that night, I kind of liked that. Nothing to do there, just a ok one night stopper. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The good: Easy to find, drive up at night o.k., price for spaces in the back (grass) o.k. (10.00 $). The bad: office building with kind of "rednecked" look inside, awfully loud (located directly near hwy 10), driveways look the same as mentioned above (office building). No Passport America discount, though listed. Rate for drive through spaces is $16.00. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Above rate reflects weekly rate of $96. NO LONGER ACCEPTS PASSPORT AMERICA OR ANY OTHER DISCOUNTS. Utilities are in very good condition with good quality power. We were in a pull through site with a very nice concrete slab. Roads are in poor condition. Considerable traffic noise from I-10. Manager very helpful. Good overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient to I-10 and TX/LA border. We arrived after/during super big rain and park was just receding from being flooded - - drained quickly and pad we used was somewhat elevated so above the water. WiFi was excellent (which is rare) and lack of cable was very well covered by exceptional DTV reception from about 20 channels with super clear reception. Staff was helpful. Our rating may be tarnished by the many hours of driving in heavy rain to arrive. Roads within were puddled but it is Louisiana. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was nice but some sites are kind of scrunched together on some rows especially behind the office near the pool. Others are very well spaced. We asked for concrete pads because we had 2 trailers coming in and thought the patio would be concrete as well, but no, it was partially grassy and dirt. Naturally, it rained all weekend. Before checking in, I asked about other sites on the next row, especially sites 89-93 which had some limestone for the site but it looks like a concrete patio for those sites, which I would have preferred, but the owner said those were reserved. The 3 rows behind the office are pull throughs with full hookups. The love bugs were at their extreme on Labor Day weekend. Couldn't go to the pool with all the kids that look like they live here. Lots of sites looked like full-time settlers. Price was right though, $25.00 with Good Sam discount. Office hours are weird, 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to ? I think owner lives on property as well. The back in sites look the best, 111 - 116 are all fully concrete. Don't know if the price is more for these. No shuttle to casino, but only 4 miles; close to I-10 and only about 20 minutes from Texas line. Town of Vinton has really nothing to offer; although a nice little St. Joseph Catholic Church not far from the park. Also, is pet friendly and children friendly considering the pool and playground. Has a couple of tiny cabins. Found it weird for a park that big to only have one dumpster. Owners very nice. No cable, but digital channels were very clear. We will probably come back here if I can get the sites I'd like. They do take reservations. Very shady. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Plenty of trees and grass (TV dish won't work). Sites spaced fairly close together. OK for overnight but no reason to stay. Restroom filthy; two of three toilets plugged and overflowing. Trash on floor with containers overflowing. Probable excuse was that this was Easter Good Friday night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad park for an overnight stop. Far enough off the highway so the noise doesn't bother you, but close enough so you don't get lost trying to get back to it. Quite, friendly people and staff. There is a pool but too cold to use. Would return again if passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK for an overnight. Level concrete pads for pull-throughs, easy in and out, maybe a little narrow. NO Verizon cell phone service. NO Verizon wireless available. NO cable TV but good broadcast TV and we didn't go there for the TV or cell phone anyway, just a quick overnight stop. A little pricey for what is offered. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is on the north side of interstate at Exit 8. Access is very good. Roads are gravel. Some sites are cement. There are residences (homes) scattered throughout the campground. There are dogs roaming free. Cable TV was at the site but did not work (some was hung in the trees). This was okay for the night and convenient to I-10. Staff was friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rates: Woodalls said $24-$26, & last two reviewers said $20. I paid $33.98 w/taxes and was told that has been the rate for over one year! The conversation in the office focused on a long-term resident who should not drink so much so she could walk farther to throw things in the dumpster. I tossed beer bottle caps off my site back on to the site next door where the empty beer bottle laid. All 3 dogs I have seen in the hour that I have been here were off leash, two without owners. Nice grassy pet area, mature trees and a bit of grass. Desk person was helpful with business cards for local RV repairs. Narrow sites but our pull-through is concrete. Easy access off the freeway so appealing for an overnight, but very overpriced for what you get. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our experience was very different than the most recent post. The owner was very friendly, cordial and helpful. The pool was spotless and kids were enjoying it, but it had to be cold! The park is very well maintained and immaculate. There were long term residents but their sites were very neat and not trashy at all. There is a big field where the dogs could exercise away from other residents. There is an excellent Cajun restaurant a couple of blocks away. We thoroughly enjoy our stay here and will spend more time in the area using this park as a base camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This ez-off ez-on is perfect for a quick overnight (but of couse, means lots of freeway noise). The town of Vinton is charming, if a little past it's heyday. The park owners are, however, not so charming. Another post indicates that they don't know how to run a park, and we agree. Gruff style, office open 5p-7p only, a pool last vacuumed just after Rita hit in 2005, unfinished projects everywhere, half the residents living like permanent refugees. But drop in, pick a site, and when the office opens ask for the "one night only off the books rate" and you've got a good, cheap spot with workable wifi and $1.25 laundry for the night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The overnight and short term sites are very long concrete slabs with patio. The new owners just took over and were very pleasant. The utilities were excellent, (50 amp, sewer, water). They have free WiFi. The new owners just opened the store since the original was store was destroyed by hurricane Rita. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park suffered damage from hurricane Rita in September of 2005. It is still very rough around the edges. The management is clueless as to running an RV park. They ran a very loud generator for several hours right at dinnertime. Most of the people here are permanent residents. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was fairly quiet even though it was close to I-10. We chose a grassy site instead of a concrete one. The only problem was when the rain was heavy, there was considerable flooding. But it dried up quickly. I use Verizon for my internet connection and this park seemed to be on the edge of the Verizon area. I was able to connect, but it was sporadic. We stayed for a month at $185 + electric. $40 (444kwh) of electricity was included in the monthly rental, overage was 0.09 cents per. The campground is close to the Creole Nature Trail and the Louisiana coast. Shopping in Vinton is limited, but closed enough to Walmart, etc in Sulphur, LA and Orange, TX. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many permanent residents. We only stayed here one night and the cops seemed to visit too often, but thank goodness they were around. The area didn't seem safe. This is a dis enfranchised KOA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
