1 Park near NAS JRB New Orleans, Louisiana
Jan 2016 - $20.00
We stayed here while visiting New Orleans. The campground is very clean, well laid out and easy to maneuver around. All utilities were very good, no cable but plenty of channels to pick up over the air. Nice paved, level sites with grass between each, very roomy. Wifi was solid and laundry room has three washers at $1.00 and six dryers at $.75 for 30 minutes.
The biggest complaint is about the information given by the office. Other reviews raved about Kenny in the office giving tons of information about New Orleans including the ferry, places to park and many other things. We arrived and the girl checking us in, while was nice, had to keep asking other people in the office about the things listed above and really knew nothing about the area. We arrived late in the day and were given the welcome packet and essentially told all the information was listed in the packet. None of the information listed was correct. The ferry address and hours was incorrect, the tours and prices listed for the ITT was also wrong. When checking with the ITT office, they stated the contract for 2016 hadn't been completed yet so many tours were not even available. I was amazed by this considering we were there during the Mardi Gras season. On top of everything I was called back to the office because at check in I was not charged the correct amount for the stay. I can understand one mistake in the office, but with all the misinformation and the payment mistakes it makes it tough to go higher than bad on service.
The commissary and exchange were fine, not the largest, but had most of what we needed for a two and a half week stay. You will hear Coast Guard helicopters frequently since the pad is just behind the campground. Jet noise itself was occasional. Outside of the service the park is great. Nothing to do in the immediate area, so you will drive at least 30 minutes for something to do, including off base shopping at Walmart. - pfogleboch

Nice and new military park with lots of rooms between sites. All sites had concrete pads, which was nice because when rains it can get very messy. This is bayou country after all. Located about 30 minutes from New Orleans, but not a bad drive, but you will need a vehicle. There was no public transportation. Nice NEX and Commissary. Just the basics, but is a bargain for a safe place to stay. Staff very nice. - NavyRebel

We had a site facing canal with runway on other side. The canal had trash. Gravel road into the campground was full of potholes. That's pretty much the only real negatives about this place. We stayed 2 weeks. Sites are cement pads surrounded with clover and grass. Plenty of room between sites. Hookups are in the middle. No trees. Laundry $1, dryer 75 cents, very clean. Also clean restrooms and showers. No off leash dog park but plenty space to walk dogs. Also, there's an off leash park nearby in one of the neighborhoods that we used. Free WiFi was fairly strong during day, not so much at nite. Campground is noisy with planes taking off or idling on runway which is just on the other side of canal. Check in person was very helpful with nice welcome package at check in. They accept UPS and Fedex at park. Exchange and commissary are within walking distance. Cute base. Would stay here again. - Flippitti
