The main/front desk day manager is probably one of the most unfriendly people we've encountered. She acted as if we were doing her a favor by staying at her over-priced RV Park. She warned us not to drive in the French Qtr, take cabs, and not go out at night. Yes, it was next door to the French Qtr; but also under two highways where we heard trucks, motorcycles, planes, sirens, ambulances, cops; and saw the homeless who also inhabit these underpasses. We would not recommend this park to anyone, although the park and facilities are very good. We would be remiss in telling you that the night manager was nice, and so was another women who worked days. - Rachel and Laurence

Excellent park with the finest amenities. So very convenient to best tourist spots in the French Quarter. Only down side is the wifi that doesn't work most of the time. - dagopapa

What a super way to see New Orleans! No fighting traffic or searching for a place to park while visiting the French Quarter!! Easy on/off of I-10 this park is well managed and well groomed. Every space has pavers & grass. Wide streets with good turning radius. Excellent security. Good 50 amps. We did not use their facilities. Only 2 blocks to the French Quarter. - Freedom Bus

We've stayed at Jude Travel Park before and have since upgraded to a 41' with 4 slides. Can't say enough about this clean and cozy park. We had no problems parking with tow car parked directly in front of our rig. The Jazz Festival Good Sam rates are only $10.00 more than the regular Good Sam rate. Owners are extremely helpful with festival, downtown parking, and restaurant info and the shuttle is still only $5.00. It's a gated park with good WiFi- the park is kept neat and clean (including an older motor home on premise that houses a couple less fortunate than ourselves.) The bathrooms are immaculate!! We decided to stay a few extra days as we map out our next leg. - Col. G

We stayed here one night during the French Quarter Jazz Fest which allowed the park to increase their rates. The owners are very nice. The problem was they were trying to squeeze big rigs in a park not designed for big rigs. We stayed here in a 45' motorhome and our friends were in a 41'. We did not belong here. My nose was sticking out in their driveway and I was required to park my toad in front of my neighbor's rig. Getting into the space was an event. Getting out the next morning required the next door neighbor to move his truck. This park should limit at 30'. There are a lot of homesteaders with several rigs in poor repair. - Cc rambler

Stay anywhere but here. This place is a cramped filthy mess, filled with run-down FEMA trailers, and right next to the horrible-smelling oil refineries. At the entrance is a run-down convenience store that looks like crack-ho central. The inside of the park and the motel were no better. Each site had sewer vent stacks sticking out of the ground emitting noxious smells at eye level. I wouldn't stay there if they paid ME $20 a night. - meltar

This park is not in a good area. There is a gate that closes at night and we felt reasonably safe in the park. The parking lot of the on site convenience store is full of 'Ladies of the evening' up to mid morning. There is nothing to do in the park itself but I guess that's not what you go to New Orleans for. Rate was for a monthly rate while we were in the area working. It is close to the Interstate for access. Depending on traffic the French Quarter is 15 minutes away. Construction on the nearby drawbridge makes access tricky depending on the direction you come in from. The manager of the park knows nothing about the RV lifestyle. I was dumping the holding tank before we left and he said 'So that's how you dump the tanks'. Not bad really for a few days of sightseeing. - catadjuster

We were warned about this part of town, but it is a gated RV park next to a motel. It was clean and the staff was friendly. Sites were level enough. Very close to the French Quarter. We would stay here again. - molly29

Overpriced as are most KOAs, however this is New Orleans and so is everything else.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, nice wide, paved (all back-in) sites. - Mack & Mary Ellen

Really hard to rate this park. The people were all very nice and helpful. The park is kind of old which makes it look run down, but not sure I would call it run down, just old. Its stupid expensive for what you get. Unfortunately, there really is no other options in NOLA. This park is not close to the French Quarter at all, if you take their free shuttle into French Quarter, it's a $30 cab ride back, but that is kind of the only way. If you have a vehicle, you can drive down to French Quarter, but then you are paying $6/hour to park, and always worrying if your vehicle will be there when you get back. NOLA is such a crime ridden dump, if it was not for the French Quarter, not sure anyone would ever come here. We would stay here again if in the area, think we would try to stay in the French Quarter park first, even if we have to pay more, would probably cost less if you factor in cab fare. Wi-Fi worked fine, and cable worked OK. - TXDego

This is most definitely an older KOA, and it shows. The exit is closed (perhaps because of a badly crumbling interior blacktop road), requiring all rigs to enter and exit the same egress. Rude work-kamper insisted he could direct us backing into our site--- this is not my first rodeo and I could have avoided driving on the grass had I been permitted to do it the CDL driver way. No landscaping aesthetics. Numerous sites flooded during our stay... 4-6 inches of water. Since park employees used pumps to reduce the water, I'm guessing this could be a frequent occurrence. Park description mentions "Bike or hike the trail on the Mississippi levee." It doesn't say you must jaywalk over a 4 lane divided highway, walk half a block, climb the levee with no steps, and then see only trees...no river. We will return to New Orleans. We will not stay at KOA West. - Miss Rumphius-Ohio

We spent 4 nights there. We had 50 amp hookup water and sewer. The location was good for catching the stop and go bus at the visitors center. We spent our days away and spent evenings in the park. Since we are self contained we did not see or use any facilities. The trains were the worst part of staying there! That was bad but we used the air conditioner to mute the sound. - oniedu

We've been on the road for 9 months and this is by far the most substandard RV park we've encountered (and there have been some shockers!). Geographically (which the owners aren't responsible for) is is unfortunate, sandwiched between a busy highway and very busy railway line with continual train movements all night. What the owners can take responsibility for is the disgustingly dirty state of everything - from the grounds to the toilets that had no toilet paper and appeared to be uncleaned for months. We would drive all night before ever contemplating staying here again. We are not fussy people and truly cannot emphasize how bad this park is. - Monaire Corporati

Once again we let PPA make our choice for us. You have unlimited stay here and now I know why. The only good thing about this Park, it does have FHU and is close to downtown (WWII Museum). The sites are small, but the owner lets you park wherever you want. There are rundown units that haven't moved in years throughout. You park yourself, put your money in an envelope, and push it through the hole in the door. The biggy at this Park is the train yard just across the fence. The trains are switching all night with noise that goes from the whistles to the screeching of wheels on the tracks. We won't be staying here again. - Arizona Traveler

This RV park is a former mobile home park. There are a few sites occupied with long-term local workers. There are no picnic tables or a playground here - just RV sites. Site driveways are concrete runners (pavers) and gravel. Very large (25' x 100') RV sites. My site was high & dry even after a record-breaking 3" of heavy rain! I felt safe and secure here as the park is completely fenced and has a pass-coded gated entrance. It was well lighted with high profile street lighting. The electric was very good, city water & sewer - all easy to hook-up to. As this park is in East New Orleans, it is located in a business district. I-10 highway traffic noise is somewhat noticeable. The RV Park staff is excellent to work with. Very good communications & eager to help. Pelican RV Park is situated at the Southwest corner of the intersection of U. S. Hwy. 90 (also known as Chef Menteur Highway) and Downman Road. It is approximately 5 miles east of the French Quarter. Big rigs should disconnect your towed as you have to make a sharp turn to enter the park via the pass-coded gated entrance. There is PLENTY of room in the adjacent parking lot to disconnect. When traveling to New Orleans, we will definitely stay here again! - TravelnSteve

This place is a hoot! We live nearby and the area this park is in is not someplace where you can't relax at night. However once you go through the gate, you no longer feel that your in the ninth ward. Also, I thought this park was right on/near Lake Pontchartrain which is a large, pretty lake with lots of sailboats. This property is actually on the Industrial Canal which is a man-made canal that does eventually empty into the lake but it's not nearby. Positives include a nice little pool, restaurant and bar that has music at night. In the restaurant, avoid the jambalaya. The burgers, however were fabulous! Re: the park, there were a lot of high-end Class A's, along with an equal amount of Class C's, fifth wheels, and travel trailers. Gift shop has a surprisingly nice selection of New-Orleans inspired gifts and t-shirts, local attraction brochures (there is lots to see in our eclectic, sometimes kooky city), and convenience store items. I had to laugh: so many people wrote about the unpleasant check-in lady and super-nice guy that escorts you to your spot and offers to help you get in your spot. That's *exactly* what happened to us! Lol. We stayed in one of the standard sites (lowest cost) right by the pool (sites 142-144). Next time, we're going to try and get one of the super sites on the water (7, 9-16). This was a fun RV park! We'll definitely be back, despite the high price. - GearDown

Check-In process was so great! There was plenty of signage to tell us where to go. The entrance and RV spots were nice and open. As soon as I checked in, we had to gentlemen show us to our spot and help us back in. This was Huge because this was our first time driving and backing in our RV.
RV Spots were nice large spots with a picnic table. There wasn't a ton of shade, but we had a view of the water which was nice! All 120 sites are full 50 amp service with 6 price ranges.
They offer free WiFi. We were almost as close as you could get to the main building, but our internet was so weak it didn't work. Very limited WiFi access.
Amenities: They have a convenience store, marina, restaurant and bar, gorgeous pool right off the water with hot tub, playground, and daily shuttle into NOLA. They also have showers, a dump station, propane, laundry. They have gorgeous little villas for people traveling without RVs or families trying to meet up for a vacation.
Kids/Pets: This is very family friendly! We didn't have time for the pool or playground, but both were nice!
Staff: It was difficult initially getting someone on the phone to make the reservation. I called a few times and finally got to talk with someone to make our reservation. The staff was so friendly and accommodating once we arrived and on the phone making the reservation. They were so helpful providing us with information we didn't even know we would need!
Local Area: It's about a 15 minute drive into NOLA which speaks for itself. - C est La Vie Three

Very nice park. We stayed here two years ago and this is our second time here. There is a shuttle to the French Quarter three times a day for $6/person. There is a restaurant and bar in the park. Campsites are gravel with grass. Each site has a picnic table. - 4jim

OK, all the previous reviews are correct. Scary part of town, so we didn't even grocery shop at a nearby grocery store while we were here; will do it when we arrive at next destination. Bathrooms were old but surprisingly clean. If you want a close destination to French Quarters and don't mind HWY noise, then this is an okay place to stay for a couple of days if you are careful and also do your grocery shopping before you arrive. It also rained two days really hard while we were here and the drainage is good. Should have been $20 a night not $30!! There were only about 4 RV travelers in the whole park; the rest are permanent workers that park their RVs there. - kemosabe

Whoa. This is a scary place and a cat breeding ground to boot. The pool is filthy. The amenities are old and gave me the heebie geebies. Really nasty part of town, near the hwy, and train tracks. And, it is definitely located on the wrong side of those tracks. I wish I hadn't booked and paid before seeing it. I actually considered leaving and camping in Walmart but then felt I would prefer to have the gated protection of the Riverboat. Later, I wondered who I was being gated with? Felt uneasy the whole time. Kept everything locked up tight. Couldn't wait to leave in the morning. - kweega

It is a small gated parking lot. No frills here however all the services worked well, I felt very secure and the owner is friendly and helpful. For anyone stopping to sight see New Orleans, it is a perfect stop. Right off the I-10, city bus stop right in front and grocery store right down the street. If we come back to New Orleans we will stay here. - Biker2
