were looking for the true
Cajun experience and remembered stopping briefly at Betty's RV Park in
Abbeville some years ago so we called and made reservations. We are
delighted we did. What's the difference between Betty's RV Park and
other RV parks. It's Betty herself. Relax in the company of your fellow
RV'rs and participate in the daily cocktail hour on the patio where
friendly conversations take place and Betty helps organize the coming
days activities. Discuss the evening's cookout or coming day's
excursions to the local communities where Cajun music, Cajun food and
above all the Cajun hospitality abound. Give Betty a call but call
early and plan to stay long.
Emily & Denis,
park has the
friendliest host of all the RV Parks we have ever stayed in. This is a
must stay when you are in Louisiana. We had more fun, met more friends
and were treated better than any RV Park we have stayed at before. Make
Betty's RV Park your destination in southern Louisiana. You won't
regret it. We will definitely be coming back soon.
RV Park - it feels
like you are coming home to a family reunion. Every day is a new
adventure with Betty and her RV "family".
Fred & Leila,
RV Park is a bed
& breakfast for RVers! Betty is the ultimate
concierge and a
gem of a person. It doesn't take long before you know she
people and is proud to share her Cajun heritage. Come to
for a true Cajun experience!
Wendell & Ruth,
Betty, for the
introduction to the Cajun culture of Abbeville. Your
the area attractions, restaurants, food, businesses and culture has
made both of our visits truly enjoyable. You as our host, has
made Janice & I welcome guests at your RV Park.
Janice & Ken,
at Betty's RV Park
is an experience you will never forget. If there was an award
Hostess of the Year, Betty would be #1 in the United States.
can have a Bed & Breakfast atmosphere, tour guide and friendly
company along with full hookups. When you leave, you feel
you are leaving friends and you start to plan your next return.
Jerry & Rose,
am delighted to inform
other RVers about "Betty's". It's difficult to explain, but you can
experience a feeling akin to living in a very charming neighborhood of
Abbeville. Folks gather at sundown on Betty's porch to socialize, often
share a dinner, and plan activities associated with the area, that has
preserved some of the finest ethnic food, music, and history in the
world. The best example of what southern hospitality really means, in
one word, is "Betty". She generates the camaraderie, and fellowship
among her guests that allows RVers to relax and make many lasting
friends who return year after year. Thanks, Betty
at Betty's RV Park
is like "coming home"! You know there is a welcome smile and
hug waiting for you upon arrival. Once your wheels have been
in place - it is time for four o'clock happy hour on the back porch
where you become acquainted with your new neighbors and possibly a
reunion with those you have met before. Like moths to a
seems that Betty attracts those who are outgoing and enjoy life as well
as herself. When you leave Betty's, you will definitely say
will be back" or probably already have your next reservation
Dean & Joyce,
2002 we have been
unable to pass through south Louisiana without a stay at Betty's RV in
Abbeville. Some kind of magic happened the first time we
there that year. That very first stay got us caught up in
"Betty's Web". We were delighted to find a lady of Cajun
who not only could send us on our way to all the spots featuring truly
Cajun life, fun, food and festivity, but she usually accompanied us in
a group and acted as our tour guide. Whether there are really
strands that wrap you in her web, or if it's just the magic of her
smile, or knowing that you are getting an authentic slice of Cajun
living, you will certainly get caught up, as we did. It is
best little reasonably priced RV park we have ever found; and Betty is
the best hostess, or as I always tell her, "Betty, you're the Woman!"
Peggy & Fred,
4 Years of full timing and more
than 150 RV Parks, our hands down favorite is Betty's. You will feel
welcome, you will meet interesting people, go to fascinating places,
and experience the Cajun Lifestyle with its great music and awesome
food. All RV parks should be modeled after Betty's. It is a great
experience and almost nobody writes her one check. You will want to
stay longer than you planned. Do yourself a favor, EXPERIENCE Betty's.
My husband Tony
and I decided to take our maiden voyage in our new 5th Wheeler to
Betty's RV Park. Betty made our first RVing experience a
one; she was so helpful. Tony and I are fortunate to have
living in the area fondly known as Acadiana, so we know the
treasures this part of the country has to offer.
Park's central location is only miles from Lafayette, New Iberia, and
Kaplan, LA. The food in this area is truly Cajun
The best part of the trip was meeting Betty, and Betty's RV
is a treasure. If you will
be RVing in the area,
do stay at Betty's and enjoy Acadiana.
"Laissez le bon
temps rouler" (let the good times roll) is what Betty's RV Park
is all about. Coming to Betty's is like coming home. We
feel welcome and happy to be there. We've been coming to Betty's
for at least 6 years. We always make reservations, but each time,
I find myself going to Betty and asking to stay longer than planned,
often more than once per visit. "Caught in Betty's web" is not
just an empty phrase. Betty is constantly planning activities for
her RVers. There's always something you will miss by
leaving. To my friends from Quebec I say, "Allez chez Betty, je
vous promet que vous ne le regrettez pas" (Go to Betty's, I promise you
that you won't regret).
We arrived at
Betty's purely by chance after spotting her ad in a travel brochure and
decided to stay so we could visit the Black Pot Festival in
Lafayette. Being in cajun country was one of the highlights of
our USA trip and we had been looking forward to it for years. We
couldn't have been luckier to have stumbled upon Betty's RV Park.
We were made welcome and felt quite at home. Our 2 day stay
turned into three weeks and would have been longer had we not called
upon all our "got to get moving" instincts. We managed to
reluctantly break free of the web just before Thanksgiving. Our
visits to Touchet's and Erath for the Saturday Jam Sessions are still
much talked about and again we thank Betty for directing us
there. The Gumbo that Betty and Wendell cooked up was awesome and
we certainly enjoyed the nightly happy hours with our fellow
campers. We never made it to the Black Pot Festival...we found
far too much to see and do around Abbeville. Thanks to Betty,
Ruth and Wendell for finding us little spaces to park in so we could
stay. We will have to return as we didn't quite spend a night in every
space. So if you want to have a laid back, relaxing few days with
wonderful people and more importantly enjoy a real Cajun experience,
you have to stop in at Betty's. We loved it and I think we nearly
turned Cajun. A big thank you Betty and long may your little park
& Marty, New Zealand
is no, repeat no, other RV park on the planet like Betty's.
Camping at Betty's is like coming home...Everyone is glad to see
you. People in Acadiana (Cajun Country) really know how to enjoy
life and Betty wants to make sure you join in the fun. They say
"Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler". Some say that means "Let the
good times roll". After you have stayed at Betty's, you'll know
what that really means...the best RV experience you have ever had and
you will come back again and again.
Gisela, Texas and Virginia
- We're not sure whether we
should thank you or curse you. We do believe you've ruined us
forever for other RV parks. Betty's is not the biggest, prettiest
or most modern. It doesn't have a bathroom or laundry and you
know what? It doesn't matter! Your place is just
magical...it has to be YOU. We had so much fun...the happy hours,
people, and did I mention the food and I can't forget the music.
We will forever be caught up in your web and loving it. We can't
wait to get back. Many, many thanks.
& Doris, Nevada
- As everyone else says, yes
you do get caught up in Betty's web. We miss you and all the
RV'ers that we had a chance to meet and have happy hour with. It
was a lot of fun. As fellow camp owners, I must say, you
certainly do have the magic with your campers. I think perhaps we
could learn a few tips from you and we thank you. As we own a
camp in Northern Ontario, we would like to kidnap Betty and we know
that her magic would rub off on our campers. We admire you,
Betty, for your strength and your wonderful personality.
& Trevor, Ontario
- This is to thank you again
for your hospitality, your guests, your happy hour, your football game
and above all, your GUMBO! Maybe there is Gumbo in The
Netherlands. If not, I am sure there is Gumbo in heaven where we
all will see you making it! Au Revoir and Merci Beaucoup!
& Lia, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- I have been full time RV'ing
for almost 2 years now and have stayed at many sites in around 14
states. Just 3 stand out from the crowd and the BEST of the BEST
is Betty's RV in Abbeville, Louisiana. You can keep your $50+ per
night full amenity sites as most of them have little or nothing to
offer in hospitality and genuine friendliness. Betty puts them
all to shame with superb service from a site with few amenities.
If you want a vacation to remember (don't we all), then stay at Betty's
- her enthusiasm and friendliness rubs off so you will meet some
fabulous other campers there too.
Betty, your hospitality and enthusiasm are second to
none! We have camped in 48 of the 50 states and can attest to
that. We loved staying there and joining in all the activities
both planned and impromptu. Hope to see you again sometime.
& Jack, Indiana
