This is our 2nd to stay here. Just off I-10 with a separate area for RV’s. Spacious & nice. Some road noise, but restrooms & welcome center are nice.

“Nice surprise”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2019

Overall Rating

Traveling down from Hot Springs, AR and we decided to stop here for the night. Nice, clean bathrooms and area with little gazebos everywhere. When we woke up, we got the nice surprise of free coffee in the morning from inside. The highway noise was pretty soothing to fall asleep to as well.

Arrived at 4:45 pm. The center was just about to close. The gentleman at the desk was the nicest I think we have run into on our travels. He wanted and insisted that we load up with coffee. Gave us some great info for the area. He made us feel very welcome. The washrooms were clean and we had security all night. I 10 a bit noisy... more

Great rest area. Only 4 stars due to noise from highway 10. The rest area has lots of local travel info and is staffed by the friendliest people you will meet anywhere. I asked for suggestions for good local Cajun food and after giving a couple of suggestions she reached under the counter and gave me a coupon for a free dessert. One ... more

“Great stopover ”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2019

Overall Rating

Nice wide level spaces. The welcome center is definitely worth a peek. Only negative was some bird (or insect) making noises all night that were very loud and kept distracting our dogs when walking them, annoying but not overwhelming so.

We were driving through and needed a place to stay for one night. We picked this spot and very glad we did. The place was clean and the people in the welcome center were very nice. There are exhibits and a short movie. And free coffee. The parking spot was separated from the trucks so it was nice and quiet. Will definitely use this pla... more

“Great stop over”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2018

Not only is this place free, but you can use the WiFi from the center without getting out of your rig! Agree with previous comments about noise from I-10 but for 1 night stop over with clean restrooms it’s a no brainer.

This place is a really nice stop! The center is also a small museum and has a little movie theater with a 10 minute video about the history of the area. Ladies at the desk are really friendly, free hot coffee and clean restrooms. Separate RV and Truck section which was nice to minimize trucker noise. Right off highway so a little noisy... more

We stayed here two nights due to rainy weather. The ladies in the Welcome Center were super nice and helpful. Very roomy spots to park. We had absolutely no issues except for highway noise.

“Excelente lugar para descansar y continuar tu camino.”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Debes de tomar en cuenta que el lugar esta a un lado del HWY10. Es un poco ruidoso pero con unos tapones en los oidos lo arregla todo. El lugar es muy limpio y tienen seguridad las 24hrs. Es el lugar perfecto para descansar y continuar tu viaje sin tener que pagar por un lugar.
