CP Campground Review – Farr Park Equestrian Center & RV Campground, Baton Rouge, LA
A no-frills, but relaxing and green City Campground within spitting distance of Baton Rouge.
- Site Quality = 2.5/5
The sites here are very basic. The park has 5 long rows of grassy parking areas with slots of 30Amp/water for each RV. There’s no separation, as such, between campsites, but in general (unless there’s an event at LSU or the horse park) the place is pretty empty. It’s open seating and you choose your spot on arrival. Small trees so only very minor spots of shade. Ground has areas of bumps and dips so take your time positioning and levelling.
- Facilities = 3/5
Facilities were generally decent. Large bathrooms with good showers which were being completely repainted while we were there. However the place gets a ding for irregular cleaning and lack of toilet paper(!). Lots of green pasture around with picnic areas and horse-trails. On-site dump, but no laundry.
- Location = 5/5
This is a perfect spot to visit Baton Rouge. You’re literally right outside town and within a few miles of LSU. Park is located in green horse country and right next to the Mississippi with opportunity to hike for miles along the levee.
- Pet Friendliness = 5/5
Very pet friendly spot. There are acres of green pasture on-site to run with doggie and you can walk pooch on the levee by the river.
Overall Rating = 3.9
BONUS ALERT = View of green pasture and horses from your RV!
Summary: This was the perfect spot to visit Baton Rouge. The park is set only a few miles from LSU, but is in a very nice neighborhood surrounded by green pasture and horses. The campground itself is run by the City and is a no-frills operation. Basically just green slices of somewhat uneven grassy parking with 30Amp/water and you chose your spot on arrival. At full capacity it would be very tight, but most of the time (unless there’s an event going on) the place is fairly empty, and you’ll get plenty of space to yourself. We enjoyed relaxing outside the RV, watching the horses, running in the pastures and walking the levee by the river, and would definitely stay here again if we came back into town.
Extra Info: Both Verizon aircard and phone worked fine. Sites are $20/night for 30Amp/water. On-site dump.
