Frog City RV Park

Well, it’s time for an update. I know it’s been awhile since our last post but it’s not for lack of trying. I typed up an awesome blog post with tons of pictures from our recent stays at Harvest Host locations, scheduled it to post, waited for it to post, realized that the entry didn’t post OR save, got mad, decided to punish WordPress for it’s sins, and gave up.

Now, we are staying at Frog City RV Park in Duson, LA which is just outside of Lafayette. It is such a nice little park and there are many fun things to do in the area.

Not only are we guests here, we are also part time employees. We just fill in on the weekends now and then for the full time managers of the park.

For you non-RV’ers out there, this is called Workamping (work camping). This is when you are hired by a park in exchange for a free site and sometimes pay and other perks. So, we will be living at no charge for the next few months in exchange for a few hours of work.

We tried this one other time and it was a MAJOR fail!!! That last place treated it’s workampers like free slave labor. We left after a week.

But, we sure found a good one here! It’s a slow paced, 62 site, RV park right off of I-10. Everybody loves Daisy and she enjoys playing the park “Welcome Wagon”.

Stop by and say hello if you’re in the area. It’s a great place to stop if you’re headed West to TX on I-10. There aren’t any stops after us until TX (well, there are a few that are FULL of monthly renters in Lake Charles because of the pipeline and two new factories).
