Ville Platte is a city in, and the parish seat of, Evangeline Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 7,430 at the 2010 census, down from 8,145 in 2000. The city's name is of French origin, roughly translating to "flat city", in reference to its relatively flat topography in contrast to the more hilly terrain north of the area.

Chicot State Park

Reviewed By Sarracenia - Norman, Oklahoma

This is a nice park not far from the main road. Many of the campsites have water and electricity and some have nice wood decks. Trashcans at every site. Cell reception is poor but there is fee wifi around the campground. Not many bathhouses, just 2 and the one I used had only two showers. The bathrooms need a bit of maintenance, but there was hot water and everything worked.
One of the best things about this park is its proximity to Lousiana State Arboretum. An excellent facility with a relatively new nature center and some beautiful trails. It is adjacent to the state park.

Nice views of a bald cypress swamp from the waling bridge over the lake.

I would return to camp in this state park

Freds Lounge

Catch a little Cajun fever at Fred’s, where the Cajun joie de vivre is evident and infectious.

Reviewed By CrankyOldGuy - Arlington, Texas

I have heard of freds but I was a bit concerned it may not be too "family oriented" so I normally listen to the Saturday morning jam at Savoy's in Eunice.
This time I tried Freds.
It was everything you read in these reviews. The live music is good but it is crowded and difficult for this mobility impaired guy to maneuver in.
If you are looking for a place for good live music and drinks on Saturday morning, this is the place. If you care less about the alcohol, there are other good places in nearby towns...

Lunch is served Tuesday through Friday with a limited menu but delicious choices. Soup of the day, salads and sandwiches are all very well prepared and the atmosphere is fun and pleasant.

Savoy Music Center

Mark Savoy handcrafts 77 Cajun accordions a year. More than making instruments, hes preserving a part of musical history.

Reviewed By Matthew C - New Orleans, Louisiana

This is our second visit to the Savoy Music Center. First exposed to several of the Savoy musicians at the N.O. Jazz Fest. I recommend this Saturday experience to anyone wishing to experience an outstanding, unique culture.

The Bar at Hotel Cazan

Reviewed By Gwen L - Mamou

Valerie is a great woman and hostess. The people of Mamou are friendly and you must eat at krazy Kajun and Bon Temps boiling shack. Then finish the night at the Holiday Lounge.

Louisiana State Arboretum

Reviewed By RoapTripper3081 - USA

Pros: Well-marked trails wind through different terrains. Some of the trees are labeled. It's free! Cons: Watch out for ticks and mosquitos.
