Now that we have weathered Hurricane Laura and all inspections have been made, we are happy to report besides some trees/debris and a little water (Rynella Park/Delcambre Park) all is well. Our office will resume business as usual on Monday (8/31).

Isle of Iberia is OPEN for camping this weekend! If you would like to make reservations, please go online to isleofiberia.com to BOOK NOW. We also plan to have our last August scheduled public swim day Sunday (8/30) from 1:00pm-5:00pm for $10/person; weather permitting! (Reminder: We are still following all phase 2 guidelines)

Thoughts and prayers to all those in our area as well as our friends to the west who were not so lucky! Wishing them safety during the recovery process! #LouisianaStrong

Due to Hurricane Laura and the effects forecasted for our area, the administrative office and all parish parks are CLOSED this week. We plan to re-open Friday, August 28; weather permitting. Park assessments will be made once its safe to re-open. If you have any questions, please call the office on Friday. We hope everyone stays safe. Thanks!

****************************************************
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!

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.
