Come experience Cajun Country’s Hot Side, home to famous attractions, world renowned cuisine, contagious music, sizzling events and people who never meet a stranger. Then, cool down at Cajun RVera Resort, the only RV resort in Iberia Parish.

This 40-acre oasis currently has 185 spots available with plans to expand. All sites are full service pull-through or back-in with free Wi-Fi. There is a rentable pavilion to suit every traveler’s needs as well.

As for some Cajun fun in the sun, the SugaHouse clubhouse boasts a concession area, arcade and laundry room. Guests can stroll outside and enjoy the full bar while relaxing poolside or at the adjoining swim up bar. The luxurious heated pool, splash pad and lazy river with inner tube rentals allow guests to float their troubles away. They can also enjoy live music and events on select weekends.

A stocked pond, beach volleyball area and 18-acre walking park will soon add to the resort’s fun factor. The best part is that campers are not the only ones with access to Cajun RVera’s amenities; everyone is invited to come out and play for a small entrance fee. Visitors can tour the town after a long hard day of lounging in the sun.

Walk the well-worn paths at Jefferson Island Rip Van Winkle Gardens. Tour Conrad Rice Mill, America’s oldest rice mill, then pick up KONRIKO® products and souvenirs to take back home. Travelers can visit Shadows-on-the-Teche plantation home to let history soak into their soul and imagine life as a southern belle or ‘gent. See why Iberia is so hot at the TABASCO® factory and get lost in the wild at Jungle Gardens of Avery Island.

Slither through the exhibits just like the “snake-like” curves of the Bayou Teche at the Bayou Teche Museum on historic Main Street New Iberia and see what it took to make the region what it is today. At the Jeanerette Museum, visitors can learn all about that sweet plant known as sugar cane, and discover its roots.

So, grab a friend and pack up the camper, because Iberia Parish is waiting. Are you ready to “geaux?”
