We visited Reunion Lake RV Resort, for only one night, as we returned to Florida this winter. We wish we had had more time to enjoy this 5-star resort.
Our regular readers know that we typically plan our trip well in advance…making confirmed reservations virtually every night. We decided to be a bit more spontaneous on our way home from Mission Texas, choosing instead to find a campsite each day of our travels. Along the way, we happened upon a wonderful new campground. We enjoyed our one night stay and expect we will return during future excursions.
Reunion Lake RV Resort
When traveling west, we had stopped at the French Quarter RV Resort again this year. Frankly, after two years in a row and a $150/night price tag we were looking for someplace new as we headed home. We left Houston and decided to veer off of I-10 in Baton Rouge, following I-12 instead. We are not sure why, but it took us nearly an hour to travel through Baton Rouge, but once on I-12 it was smooth sailing. Just north of LA-445 in Ponchatoula, we found the campground that has only been open for just over one year.
As luck would have it, we got the last available spot that Saturday night. The campground was filled with many families enjoying a beautiful spring day and plenty of amenities. We entered the gated facility and checked in at the office. An escort led us to our back-in 50′ long cement pad. There isn’t a great deal of room between sites, but the space is adequate.
We walked to the clubhouse, where we found a lounge, pool tables, bar, and restaurant. We sat on the balcony overlooking a lovely lake and spoke to a few “locals” that are frequent visitors. It seems that this is a popular place on weekends. Paddle boards and kayaks are available for use in the lake. A game room keeps the kids busy when it rains outside. There are two pools, one which is adult only with a swim-up bar. Private cabanas surround the adult pool provide the ideal location for an afternoon nap.
We also spoke to our campsite neighbor who was pleased to report that it was “much quieter” on weekdays, and they intend to return next year for three months.
Phase II of the resort is now underway. When we visited they were installing addition campsites on the other side of the lake, had plans to install a lazy river pool (with adult beverage stops) and plan to add pickleball courts. As we prepared to leave early Sunday morning, there was a knock at our door. A bag of freshly made donut holes was being delivered to every campsite.
It is no surprise that Reunion Lake RV Resort gets a 10-10-10 rating on Good Sam Club and 5-star reviews on RVParkReviews. Whether you are a young family looking for a weekend or vacation getaway, or a full-time RVer looking for a first class campsite with on-site amenities. You won’t go wrong if you book a campsite at Reunion Lake RV Resort.
