Very convenient location in the French Quarters. Definitely will be back. Utilities and WiFi worked well. Great spot to be based for a Saints game or getting to Bourbon street. Staff was very supportive and courteous. - JKW
I agree with other reviews - this is a great location for visiting the French Quarter. But I can not give a "resort" more than a 7 with the total lack of landscaping or lack of any architectural screening between sites. They have a nice paver drive way and brick paver coach pad. But not a single bit of landscaping. The bare unpainted concrete block wall makes you feel secure, but feeling like you are in a prison yard. With daily rates approaching 100 dollars I think a little better atmosphere is called for. - cmwb
Location is great. Felt very secure. Staff is friendly. You can walk to French Quarter, but suggest a cab after dark. I would have given a 10, but felt they could have some landscaping around sites. - air28
This is a small park on the north side of New Orleans. It is in a questionable neighborhood, but has a secured gate at night and alert, responsive, interested staff, so we did not feel uncomfortable. The gate is electric and is closed at dusk. There is a keypad code, which they provide, so you can get in at any time after it is closed. The restrooms/showers are marvelous! Well designed, well kept, cleaned daily, and conveniently located near the office. There are no pull-thru sites. The park is bounded by a motel on one side and a small office building on the other, with a rail yard behind. The yard is not very busy and was not a distraction, day or night. The park is very well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They will help you unload/disconnect from your dinghy then help you back in. They have strict but liveable rules, which are basic common sense and not cumbersome. There is a nice gazebo near the small pool & spa, which is lighted with "rope lights" and pleasant for casual conversations, even in the evening. Would I return? Yes. It is the nicest campground in the immediate area and convenient to shopping, downtown, and the French Quarter. - Steve Smith
To be honest, he sites are very close to each other and few trees or other shade. Not very private. But, having said that, it is in the middle of New Orleans and land prices are at a premium so it is understandable--and not only that, you should be out visiting the city and not sitting in the campground anyway! The owners were super nice and ran a shuttle to take you to/from the French Quarter for only $5 per person. The area is a little sketchy but the park is fenced and gated and I never felt unsafe. Warning, if you are traveling there on I-10 Westbound (coming in from Mississippi), you have to turn left onto Chef Menteur Highway (four lane highway) once you exit the interstate, and there is no traffic signal. Needless to say it took awhile to get a break in traffic in both directions to be able to turn left with our fifth wheel. The pool and hot tub area was nice, but it was too cold on our trip to use it. The bathrooms were small, but clean. There is an on-site laundry room which was clean also. - Angie C
Great park. Liked cause on City bus line. Takes you to the French Quarters. Did have to transfer to streetcar. Cheap ride 40 cents for seniors and free transfers. Can't beat that. The owner is very nice and helpful. Our first time in motor home and had to back in. No problem. They got us in the first time. I was amazed. Small park but very nice. We got next to pool and loved it. Stay here again, You bet. - sugarann
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
We stayed here for 11 nights while we visited New Orleans. It's about 20 minutes from the French Quarter and KOA provides a free shuttle at 9am and 5pm to the city and at 5:45pm back to the campground.
The staff are extremely friendly. The sites are a little narrow, but plenty long. We had no trouble fitting our 37' RV and toad with plenty of space. The sites have concrete patios and picnic tables. There is a 'back yard' of grass behind the sites which provides a little extra space, and an available dog park. We didn't have much luck with their WiFi, it was either slow or difficult to get on, but we had great signal with Verizon and AT&T for our hotspot.
There are trains that pass through the area regularly, including at night. The train conductors are liberal with their horns, so it might be tough for a light sleeper.
We did like this campground and would stay here again if we were in the area. It's a good compromise of price and location, much cheaper than staying in the French Quarter, but still easy and fast to get into town for sight seeing. - katfisch
Location is great for both downtown and airport. Park appears to be pretty busy. Staff were very helpful. Wi-Fi was fast. AT&T cell worked well. Power and water good. Be wary of berries from trees dropping on roof and slide toppers. Entrance to park is a little hidden so be careful. Left hand turns into park require crossing busy two lane section of road. Turn is almost a U turn. - GerMarV
The good aspects of this park: Lowest rate in New Orleans, good staff, good cable, 15 min to airport or French Quarter. The not good is: at least two very, very loud trains in the middle of the night, poor wifi, sites close. If you have a large fifth wheel or large motor home do not book on line. This is a small park with basically two roads. The entrance road has plenty of room for RV's and tows, the other street does not. If you are on the other street forget getting out early in the morning as both sides of the street is filled with large pick ups and you will not be able to get out. We will not be back. - kegmaster
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
If you're visiting New Orleans in an RV, Pontchartrain Landing is your best bet. Yes, it's mostly gravel but they've done a very nice job landscaping while keeping the park navigable for larger rigs. There are grassy areas and a little dog park. Some sites are maybe a little nicer than others in terms of amount of outdoor living area but let's face it, if you're here you want to go enjoy all that NOLA has to offer. The restaurant has wonderful food, live entertainment and it's nice being right on the water of the Industrial Canal where you can even drop a line and catch a fish. Most important and the reason for my 5 star rating are the wonderful and accommodating folks that run the park. - FamilyFoofaraw
We stayed one night and were disappointed. There is very little grass, the sites are mostly crushed stone with some shrubbery between sites.The WiFi signal was weak and the cable was iffy. In one laundry room 3 of the four washers were out of order, the same with the dryers. The other laundry room had only one broken dryer. Next time we'll try someplace else. - User3025
Photos almost as per website. Sites are very close one to the other. Landscape of trees and rocks only to separate each site very nice but the rest of the park need TLC. Staff very friendly, working hard but could not do anything to resolve our internet problem. We had to wait after 11:00 AM for the manager to come in. Some owners of dogs do not pick-up after their dog and leave the stuff close to your RV or picnic table! They also leave them to bark. Shuttle hours for us were too long between pick-ups, so we took the car and drove, parked behind French Quarter's Resort on St-Louis Street. Walked to the quarter's. Next time we will take a cheaper RV Park and drive close to Burbon Street. Laundry poor. Only 1 washer of 4 which was not out of order! Internet slow, had to log again every half hour or so. Will not come back. - Liz & Bob
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
