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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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.

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.

Overall, this was a decent park. I waffled back and forth between 7 and 8. Probably would have given it an 8 if the sites weren't so close together. It is a smaller park. There was a pool, looked small and I didn't use it. Sites didn't have any grills, which was disappointing. Park consists of one street, which is a loop, but it is closed on one end so you have to turn around at the end. Not sure why they don't have it opening back out to the main road, it would be much easier. It takes about 25 mins to drive into downtown NOLA from here. I think they might have a shuttle but I didn't use it. Gift shop was a little sparse. Sites are very VERY close together. I would suggest a site on the outside loop, so at least you won't have anyone behind you. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

We don't see why everyone is saying this park is in a scary neighborhood. From what we could see it is an old neighborhood, a lot of history, and some very beautiful things to see; if you take the time to see them. The park itself is smaller, the roads are a bit narrow, and the sites aren't perfect. But compared to some other places in New Orleans, it is a good deal for a decent park. The staff is awesome and the camp guides really know what they are doing when helping you back into your space. It is relatively close to the French Quarter & they do have a shuttle. But we decided to take the car, program the Navi and hit the streets, and we are so glad we did, because we really got to see the surroundings and areas most "tourists" wouldn't bother with. The KOA has a nice sized, fenced in dog park that is the backyards of two very old houses on the property. You can tell they are really old just by looking at them, but they add a "cute character" to the park itself. The park is in a residential area which looks a bit distressed when you drive down the main road But go 1 block into the community and there are beautiful brick mansions and very well-kept homes. So it really is not as scary as others say. All-in-all, this KOA is a good location, an older, but decent park with nice grassy areas at each spot and a large dog park. The people are awesome, and we will definitely stay here again when we get a chance to come back to New Orleans! We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

THE STAFF HERE IS INCREDIBLE! It is gated, which is great given the neighborhood. The pool was closed but it's March. The dog park is small but fine, as is the playground. Good office/store. There is a shuttle that runs into town for a small fee. The staff can tell you all about how to get into the french quarter and what to do when your there. They are fantastic. Nice laundry room with great rates. Noticed some flooding after bad weather but our site (76) was fine. Will absolutely stay here again! We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here while we visited New Orleans. The campground is located in a suburb community of New Orleans. They provided free shuttle service into the French Quarter in the morning and picked us up again at the end of the day. The campground is very crowded and the sites are close together. Campground staff help you get parked in the tight spots. The campground is family owned and operated and the pride they take in keeping it nice and providing good service to their guests shows.

Considering it's in the middle of a residential neighborhood it's pretty darn good, everything is a bit jammed in but they can handle the biggest of rigs. Washrooms and showers were clean and laundry worked well, WiFi had to have the password re-entered a few times a day but it was free and fast. The free shuttle bus was a huge plus and both drivers gave great running commentary on the way downtown and back. Access from the highway was easy and shopping was close (5 min to grocery store, 10 min to Walmart). Overall would recommend 100% for anyone looking to visit New Orleans for a few days. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We recently spent three days in New Orleans at the New Orleans West KOA. The park had nicely paved spaces and was very quiet within the park. Outside of the park, about a block away, large freight trains would rumble through a couple times a night blowing their horns hard. It made sleeping overnight difficult. This RV park had water, sewer, and electric hookups. There was a small laundry room and the bathrooms were a bit dated, but cleaned. All-in-all the RV campground was pretty standard. Like most KOAs, this one charged about $5-10 more per night than they should, it is really a $30-35 per night campground but we paid $45 per night. Would I recommend this park? It seemed like the best campground for the buck in New Orleans. Would we come back? If we are in New Orleans, we will probably stay here. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed three nights over the weekend (Fri to Mon). Nice campground, but sites are a little close for my liking. No pull through sites is a downside. Making a right turn into the park is a little tight, but doable even in a 40 ft. RV with a tow. Left turn in is not a problem. Staff was very helpful and assisted in parking at site. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

It was so difficult to pick an RV resort near New Orleans. They all looked pretty horrible. We decided on the KOA (it sounded the best) and we were glad we did. The actual grounds are fine. There were some really beautiful trees and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only reason it's not the highest rating is the area isn't the greatest and that there are no pull-throughs. However, their staff was GREAT in helping us back in to our site. Long drive to New Orleans, but that's to be expected from an RV camp. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Was concerned about the area of town the New Orleans West KOA was located in, however, it turned out to not be an issue at all. Felt very safe walking over to,the levee and around town a bit. Fairly level spaces. Tight backing in. Our major complaint was that we were not able to be next to our cousins whom we were traveling with. First was told it needed to be noted in the note area of reservation, was able to,show that it was listed that we were traveling together, the story changed that we needed to state specifically we wanted to placed together. Other than this inconvenience, we would stay here again but be more specific if traveling with others We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
