Lakeside RV Park
Lakeside RV Park proudly touts the title of "Louisiana's Favorite RV Park," and we can't help but agree that it's one of the best.

Visitors can choose from several RV camping options or furnished cabins for their stays.
Hidden Treasure RV Resort
Offering shaded, full hookup sites on Lake Cotile, near Alexandria, Louisiana, Hidden Treasure RV Resort is an island of tranquility and nature. The biggest perk of this campground is the lake access it offers, with a private boat launch and boat docks. Guests can also fish from the banks of the lake or enjoy its views from a gazebo that overlooks the waterfront. Past guests praise Hidden Treasure's friendly and caring owners and quiet ambiance.
Frog City RV Park
Located in the heart of "Cajun Country", Frog City RV Park offers a top-notch Lafayette experience.
