Date of Stay: November, 2005
Twice, I pulled into this campground late and had a little trouble finding a unoccupied campsite. After closing, registration is by the honor system so knowing exactly where a free space is can be a little problematic--if the campground is near capacity. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean. It is a nice place to stop for the night, and the rates are reasonable. I stayed there in 2004 and 2005. I would highly recommend it.
Date of Stay: January, 2004
I stayed in this campground in 2004. It is in a really crime ridden part of town. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. After Hurricane Katrina, I was doing disaster relief through the church about 3 miles from this campground and had been staying on the church's property in my RV. I needed to dump my black tanks before the drive home, and I remembered this campground. I went to it, and the campground was in shambles. The office was closed and the power wasn't on in that part of town but the water and sewage worked. I pulled into the campground (which was empty of RVs) and this East Indian guy ran up to me and told me that he was the owner. I explained that I needed to dump my tanks for the ride home after doing relief work in his community. He informed me that I would need to pay $15 to dump my tanks. I guess he felt it necessary to profit from hardship. I left without dumping the tanks and went to another campground where the owner let me dump the tanks free of charge. I will never stay in Mardi Gras Campground again.
