A real gem: Holbrook Park, Sulphur, Louisiana

My back yard
Holbrook Park is located on the Calcasieu River, in Sulphur, Louisiana. There are so many things that make this a special place to relax and enjoy.
Mr. Harry, the caretaker, welcomed me warmly, in spite of me being a Yankee. Actually, he did more than welcome me. He cooked me and a couple other "foreigners" a delicious Cajun style dinner of sausage, pork beans and rice. Mere words cannot do that meal justice. I'd return to the park ,again, just for the pleasure of laughing with Mr. Harry and listening to his stories and/or eat his cooking.
Many of the guests return, regularly, to enjoy the tranquility and beauty. I was welcomed into this extended family with true Southern hospitality.
The park itself is beautifully kept, with 13 RV sites with electricity. A few of the sites are on the water, but all are within spitting distance of the river. There are sites to fit any size rig. I believe each site has a pad, grill and picnic table. The campground amenities include restrooms with showers, a dump station, covered picnic areas and a fenced playground.
The sunsets on the river are gorgeous!
At $10.00 a night it's a real bargain! It is first come/first serve, however. I pulled in on a Wednesday and there was plenty of room. By the Friday night the RV spaces were filled, with locals coming over to pay for and reserve their site, on Thursday and Friday.
