15 Parks near New Orleans, Louisiana
Feb 2014 - $20.00
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

This was a nice, urban KOA. Easy access to the city (east) and plantations to the west. Staff was terrific and very helpful with tour info. - Wailea Wanderers
May 2016 - $56.00
This KOA is typical to other KOAs in pricing and general services. The "shuttle" service to French Qtr was only available at 9am and 5pm. No return service offered. Staff said you have to get a cab. We used Uber both ways, cost $36. The campground also offers a rental car. There are signs posted for 5 MPH. They strictly enforce it. Our Uber driver got flagged down by staff when he drove a bit too fast. No pull-throughs and they ask that you unhook anything you pull, as they won't allow parking on the sidewalk that runs in front of all the sites. On the plus side, very quiet and secure. - vtaylor

The Kamp workers were very nice. The gentleman that helped us back in our 31-ft motorhome did a perfect job on the first try! The shuttle fills up fast and you have to be checked in before you can sign up for the shuttle. We do not tow a car. This is why we chose the campground was because of the free shuttle. We had to use the Uber driver that lived at the KOA. He was $5 cheaper than the taxi each way, but he was such a joy to use that we gave him a very large tip. I wish we didn't sign up for any excursions because this gentleman gave us a nice tour of the city and the information was great! Save your money! My daughter enjoyed the little playground. The pool looked dirty but it was still early in the season. All of the workers were polite and courteous. It is definitely safe. - Yellow Submarine

If you want to stay close to downtown New Orleans then use this park! It is a beautiful place to camp. There is a really cool pool, restaurant/bar and a marina. The staff are SUPER helpful! We took Uber into town with no trouble at all. This is a safe campground in a really nice location. The roads coming in are rough, really rough, but once you turn into the campground you are fine. Our only regret is that we had just one night here. We would absolutely stay here again!! - scruggsfamilyRV

Gravel and dirt roads throughout park with potholes for rain water. Sites are separated nicely with plant or grass. Nice dog run outside of park area. Very large campground so everything is a walk. Nice store, restaurant, pool on premises. Nice overlook of waterway. Park is in industrial boating area. - rvjubilee

Once you get off I-10 onto France Road, you will wonder if you made a good choice when choosing Pontchartrain Landing. Rest assured, you did! It's pretty nice here, staff is all very attentive, helpful and friendly.
The reason we chose this RV park was the shuttle which makes for very convenient drop off and pick-up in NOLA. We met other campers on the shuttle and enjoyed sharing our experiences with them at the restaurant/grill on the premises.
We would stay here again. - PARTYOF2

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 was a mobile home park that the new owner are turn into a RV park, some of the hook ups are not where most RVers are use to having them but the new owner are up dating them. Spacious
gravel sites. The nice thing is that it is gated. Will stay there when we go back to New Orleans. - alleycat

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

Fellow RV'rs please don't stay here. Not secure, as it should be. Main office was spooky. We were told that the main gate would be closed. It was never closed. Security zero. I have no idea why we stayed here other than we were misinformed. We made a reservation well in advance and they had no record of it. Stayed here one night and left as early as we could. The office staff was fairly friendly. - mywinnie1-

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

Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Wide and level sites. Excellent utilities. Cable available but we used our satellite. Good fast WiFi. All sites are easy back in. If you want to take public transportation into downtown, it is right across the street. It is not the most beautiful park but is excellent for an urban setting. I would definitely stay here again. - roybrody

Basic RV park. Friendly and helpful staff. Sites level and easy to back into. Small clean and modern shower/toilet room. Good power, water, and sewer hookups. Not a pretty park but it is clean. Pads are gravel. Good security which is important because the location is not in the best part of town. Entire park is fenced and gated so we felt secure. Rail yard where they switch rails cars is immediately behind the park so you
hear some banging and clanging noise 24/7. Very little noise in terms of train whistles or fast moving trains. Slight road noise. Noise did not bother us. Easy to find with good signs. Excellent access to the french quarter. Uber service worked great at a cost of about $12-$20 one way. Good price. We camped there in a motorhome for a week. Will stay again. - Max21

I liked this park because the owner and manager are committed to upgrading the park. There are several other parks in this part of town but none seem as eager to please. The sites are being upgraded with new drainage, new pad materials, and landscaping. The sites are back-in only, but that is not a problem because there is plenty of room to swing around and the sites are about 28' wide so no worries about your neighbor. It's only about six miles to the French Quarter. I plan to spend more time here in the future. - senator47

The location, just outside the French Quarter, can't be beat and it's easy to walk to the FQ during the day.
This is an urban rv park, and has gotten quite dirty. This campground used to be pristine, but has decayed. The grime from I-10, passing overhead just outside the park, is on everything. Our premium site, with gazebo, was filthy. Just moving the chairs covered me in dirt. When I mentioned the condition to the front desk, the response was that it was the site owner's problem, not the park.
The park has the slight feel of being under siege. Inside it's nice, with 6 foot barbed wire concrete walls, locked gates, and 24 hr security guard, but the surrounding area feels just a bit "iffy", even with the police station a block away. It's safe during the day, but I wouldn't walk back from the FQ after dark, though others do.
To add to our experience, our rate for the 3rd night was $170, up from $123 because the Saints game. $420 for 3 nights -that was a little hard to digest!
So, it's expensive, grimy, and in an insecure area -- it's New Orleans. I'd come back, but at these rates I'd expect less dirt and suggest a good pressure washer! - zcaptain

We stayed a week here and enjoyed every min. It's close to French Quarter and uptown. There is some noise from I-10, but didn't bother us. They keep everything clean and the pool/spa area great for morning coffee or a beer in afternoon. Dog area is small but we walked ours in park across alley in daytime. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. We plan to be back next year to NO and will stay here again. - SlicksMom

Let me start with I'm sorry to have to write this and never thought we'd have to. This campground which use to be pristine, friendly, reasonably higher priced with discounts, has changed drastically.
From our first time here 4 years ago, to now, the prices have gone up drastically, and the girls at the desk say the owner did away with all discounts.
The front desk staff girls are not people friendly and seem to have a very poor arrogant attitude, like you owe them something. Not very welcoming.
The bathrooms which along with the rest of the property use to be always be pristine. There is no AC in any of them, so you have no choice but to walk back to your camper wrapped in your towel to get dressed without your clothes getting soaked. The baths used to be spotless clean, but now are comparable with an average campground you pay $25-40 at, but with a Hilton price tag.
The Patio/ Pool chairs are deteriorating, as are what used to be level, clean parking pads.
We can stay at a comparable RV Park for a third of the cost or less, with discounts and take a taxi to the French Quarter, and still have money left over for what you pay here for the convenience of the location to the French Quarter.
It disappoints us the owner has gotten complacent to his regulars and how they should be considered, instead he let's things go, increases costs and is losing clientele. What used to be a full park over weekends the last 3 years, we arrived to find quite the different scene, with a quarter of the sites filled and then one nighters arriving late and leaving the next morning, looking like a ghost town. Hope he reads this and rethinks what he is doing to himself by the changes in policy, price and care.
The only thing that is a happy site is seeing that same older white haired guy who we think is maintenance, running around trying to insure trash is picked up, and all RV'ers needs are met. Hope he is paid for all his efforts! - Nitwitt100

If you want a park close to town, friendly staff & reasonably priced, this is the perfect park.
The owners go out of their way to give great service.
While there is no pet run, there is ample places for your furry friend to walk n potty. - Dksnapshots

Great little travel park owner operated. We've stayed with them twice now. Not the best area of town, but gated park so felt good about it. They have a shuttle service for a nominal fee into town. Enterprise car rental is nearby. Nice pool, however we did not use it. They also have cable and WiFi. WiFi was spotty at best. We especially enjoyed all the cats that stay around the place. No rodent problems. We'll definitely stay there again next time we go to New Orleans. - Harleyjt1

We had a wonderful stay at Jude Travel Park. The managers were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area...where to park in the French Quarter, best tours and areas of interest etc. Though not in the best part of town the park is secure and gated and is a convenient drive to all of NOLAs attractions. Our gravel site had very close lot spacing and included a picnic table. - Debbie G

Was OK for the area. Not a big fan of the area for camping. Hot and humid for me. Qualifications aside, the campground was nice. It was clean, had power for A/C, and was very convenient to downtown NOLA. We arrived late night and had to go in the back way after-hours entrance, but it was fine. Site was level side-to-side and we had enough room to stretch out. We backed up to a bayou and that was nice. There were a lot of bugs, however. - steammaker

We love this park. The sites are long and concrete. Very spacious. All have a patio, either wood or concrete. All sites are back-ins.The camp hosts are friendly. We stayed here for a week in a 40' fifth-wheel. The only thing lacking is a sewer hook-up. We love the parks proximity to airboat rides and to Algers Point. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to New Orleans. - oldbluejay

Very convenient park to New Orleans area. We have stayed here several times and it seems the restrooms and showers are starting to show their age. But they were reasonable clean with plenty of hot water. Some of the sites have wooden decks that are real handy if it been raining. All sites have concrete patios with a table at the real of the site. Nothing beside the RV means you have wet soggy grass outside the door. We will continue to use this park as a base while visiting our family and enjoying New Orleans. - bamawig
