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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.
Enjoyed going to the plantations, especially Oak Alley.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Half of this park is decent concrete pads for large vehicles. The other half is a dark, messy area for pop-up campers and tents. The whole area is surruounded by a tall fence and feels secure. It is located very conventiently to major roads in NOLA, but does not have road noise. It took about 30 minutes by car to get to the French Quarter. We were given a lot of useful information as we checked in and told about a convenient shuttle to downtown which we did not use. So - there was good service and security, but the park had many very messy areas as well. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Parking a full size 3/4 ton pickup in NO is next to impossible and very expensive. One of the staff suggest we drive to a certain street (I can't remember the name.) He said to park there and take the street car into town. Worked out great.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.
Drive to French quarter is 30+ minutes.

Yes, this is an older park, but the sites are spacious even for a big rig (we are 41 feet) with a large space to park the tow. There are only back-in sites, so this may not be convenient for just an overnight stop in motorcoach. The sites are clean and all have large concrete pads which include the patio area.
There are trains and planes; however, the noise is not bad at all. We would stay here again. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.
There are grocery stores and drugstores within a few miles.

This is an older park but it is well maintained. Roads are paved and sites are large concrete pads. The sites are long and much wider than at most private RV parks. All sites are back-in but the roads were wide and getting into our site wasn't all that difficult. In addition to the principal park area with these large sites there is also a dirt area under large trees which appeared to be electric and water sites mostly for smaller RVs. Satellite TV reception was easy where we were but would have been impossible in the treed area. Although this park was a ~20-30 minute drive to the Jazz Fest shuttle bus parking at City Park it was an easy drive. The park is in a nice neighborhood with good shopping and restaurants. We preferred that to being closer in but having a more dangerous neighborhood. The train noise is noticeable, as are the airplane takeoffs, but neither bothered us since we had windows closed with the A/C on. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Large sites with concrete pad. Convenient to downtown by car or take free shuttle. Train does go nearby at night with horn, but other than that,it is quiet. We will stay here again. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Although this campground is a ways from the city, they do provide a shuttle in twice a day and out once a day with a mini-local tour of sights as you go in, and it's free. The place is very friendly with work campers and staff. Our site was right across from the office and the laundry was right behind us. We did have some issues with wifi but only because the campground was updating their access and attempting to correct problems in their own system. They are very strict about the leash rule but they have a nice fenced in K9 park that is lighted at night. If you are a biker, the campground is across the street from the levee which has a paved bike path going in either direction for more than 5 miles. If you insist on quiet, the airport is close and the train comes through nearby often. We would very much recommend this campground and would stay here again.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.
If you cross the street and walk down one block, you can access the Mississippi River Rail Trail, which is great for biking, running, and dog walking.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.
