Now that we have weathered Hurricane Delta, maintenance crews are out continuing park assessments and beginning clean up. We do have some damage that will require repairs and trees/debris needing removal. We ask that everyone be patient as we work to get the parks repaired and cleaned. Our Administrative office is OPEN.

Isle of Iberia office is OPEN and camping can resume! If you would like to make reservations, please go online to isleofiberia.com to BOOK NOW.

Thoughts and prayers to all those affected! Wishing everyone safety during the recovery process! #LouisianaStrong

****************************************************
UPDATE on Summer Day Camp AS OF 5/11/2020

Our department is waiting Governor John Bel Edwards’ press conference scheduled today (5/11/2020) at 2:30pm to see what decisions are made in regards to the potential phasing process for re-opening the state.

Depending upon his announcement, administrative staff will meet, as well as get with our legal department, to get advice on what summer day camp 2020 could look like. We are weighing all options and considering several possibilities. These decisions take time and are not being taken lightly. We only want what is best for campers, their families, and staff during these uncertain times.

We will notify all parents by the end of the week and post updates to our page.

We wish you continued safety and good health!

Thanks!

Join us for our Tiny Tots Clinics in March!
This summer, I attended the IREC Wellness Water Classes at the Isle of Iberia RV Resort. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed the water yoga, water aerobics and water Zumba classes!! The instructors were amazing and made the classes fun and easy to do at your own pace. We utilized the Lazy River and had a great time! That said, I would like to ask that you consider something along the lines of an indoor Wellness Swimming Pool for Iberia Parish, that could be used year-round for this purpose.
