Date of Stay: February, 2010
This was our second time coming to this park and we were surprised by the amount of progress this park has made since our last stay. They now have a bar located on the pavilion deck overlooking the canal, and soon it will be accessible by boat. We were sad to see all the brown landscaping, but it was explained to us it was a result of temps in the teens 3 weeks prior to our stay. We came for Mardi Gras and love the free shuttle to the Quarter. We chose this park the first time based off reviews on this site and returned because this park went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. This park is in an industrial area, but we found the area serves as a buffer to the city so it was very secure. The last post about this park talks about an "unruly" guest. In all fairness to the park it should be known the person in question wasn't unruly at all; however, he was drunk and depressed, and the park staff dealt with the situation swiftly and professionally. I have stayed both here and the resort downtown and both are nice parks but in the future will only stay here because of its location and very quiet nights. Mardi Gras was a great time, and we look forward to our next trip to NOLA. 10+++

We stayed here for jazz fest weekend and couldn't be happier. Weren't sure about the place on our way there but what a diamond in the rough. Ship traffic to watch, super yachts going by, and the dolphins capped everything off. I couldn't believe this park is in the city because at night you hear nothing!!! The staff was a 10+++ and we would recommend this park every chance we get. What an awesome experience.
