Betty’s RV Park, Abbeville, LA

I hesitate to write this blog entry because Betty’s is such a magical place, with limited space, so I don’t want too many people to know about it or we might not be able to get a site in the future! Betty Bernard is definitely a special kind of person, and her RV Park is one of a kind, often with a waiting list.

But our friend Jim Tidball has posted a couple of times recently, so I guess the secret’s out! And previously Bobbie Chapman posted several pictures of Betty’s RV Park to help those who haven’t been there to envision just how intimate the place is, with only 17 sites surrounding Betty’s house. And besides that, every time I mentioned Betty or her RV Park I got a bunch of messages telling me to say Hi to Betty! Please click on these links to gain a better view of the wonderful experience we’ve had. Jim even included a few pics of Don and me.

While there, we celebrated Betty’s 70th birthday that occurred on March 31, Easter Sunday.


Preparations were well under way when we arrived, so all we had to do was donate to the ‘kitty’ and sign the cards. Nancy and Jim had fun taking the balloons from the car to the party room.


One of the cakes shows that 3 other people were also celebrating birthdays, and one couple had an anniversary.


The group gave Betty a new flag to fly on her flagpole in front.


And we gave her some of her favorite wine, enough to keep her stocked up for awhile!


In the interest of getting this blog entry posted so I can move on to more recent events, I’ll finish now. This was only one of many events and activities we enjoyed while at Betty’s, including daily happy hour gatherings, and we met many interesting and friendly people. We look forward to visiting this lovely park again.

We’ve moved on to Houma, Louisiana, about 100 miles away, and are enjoying the start of an 11-day Adventure Caravans MegaRally. This is the trip we won as the grand prize at the WARE (Western Area Rally for Escapees) last year. We’re missing that rally this year, since it begins next Sunday, but we wish our friends who are there the very best time and a successful rally in California.


  1. It looks like you were having loads of fun. Be sure to share what an 11-day Adventures MegaRally involves. Wow, too much fun, smile.

  2. Love Betty's RV Park. You never know what adventures await until you get there. Met Jim and Nancy when we were there last year and now follow them in their blog.


Please tell me what you think, either here, on Facebook, or by email. I *love* comments!
