From their website: Poche’s RV Park is a Cajun campground that is located approximately 5 miles north of beautiful Breaux Bridge, La. The park is sitting on 93 breathtaking acres. Poche’s RV Park has 85 full hookup sites, with large concrete slabs. About 95% of the RV sites back up to our beautiful ponds, to where you can walk out of your camper and start fishing within a few feet. We also have 5 different size cabins for rent to accommodate any size family.

Natural Features

Poche's contains 5 different fishing ponds. You can catch largemouth bass, bream, white perch, and several different types of catfish. Upon check-in you will receive a printout that describes what you may catch and keep and what you need to catch and release in each of the 5 ponds at that time. Ponds catch and release rules vary depending on the season.

Facilities

Rental options:

  • RV sites

  • Primitive campsites

  • Cabins on the water

  • Clubhouse

  • Small church

  • Boats

Recreation

  • Dog park

Unfortunately since we stayed on weeknights we were unable to attend any weekend activities. As is listed on their website, "On different Saturday afternoons you can hear the sounds of live music coming from our clubhouse: Come and join us for some relaxing tunes and afternoon dancing." Based on their current calendar, music seems to be a Friday night event.

The cons for us at this park were:

  • It doesn't have any hiking trails

  • The sites are a little close together

  • All of the waterfront sites are set up to put your door side away from the water.

  • Although we were not staying in a tent, the primitive tent campsites had no privacy between them and were close together

  • The primitive tent campsites have no access to restrooms

  • If you have your own boat you have to pay an extra fee to use it

  • The dog park is REALLY small

  • One of our propane tanks got overfilled, remind them to burp your tank

  • Must take some bumpy country roads to get there

  • There’s a large ditch running right along the drive that can make backing in somewhat challenging for larger trailers (those over 35 feet long)

  • Only 5 sites are eligible for any discount plan - they’re the back-in ones not on the water

  • The sewer connections are all the way at the back of the pad. Be sure you have at least 20 feet of hose

The pros for us at this park were:

  • Being remote and a little ways from major highways makes it very quiet

  • Being remote and a little ways from major cities means less light pollution and more stars

  • Less than 15 minutes to major shopping centers for supplies and groceries

  • Close proximity to many charming towns like Breaux Bridge, Arnaudville & Grand Coteau

  • Lots of wildlife and waterfowl to watch near the ponds

  • If you don't have your own boat you can fish from the shore

  • If you don't have your own boat you can rent a kayak or canoe for an additional fee

  • You can catch some amazing sunsets and/or sunrises over the water

  • They have propane for purchase at a reasonable price

  • Although we were not staying in a tent, the primitive tent campsites were well maintained and right on the water

  • The primitive tent campsites were well distanced from the RV sites

  • Free fishing included with site rental, no license needed

  • Sites are clean and level

  • Strong and fast Wi-Fi - there’s repeaters all over the park

  • Main office has a country store with knickknacks, camping, and basic food supplies

  • Also available at the main office are their specialty meats and frozen gumbo
