I was familiar with the area which is a fast deteroiating industrial area with a very rough and pot filled road (France Road). My wife made comments about it and then I reminded her of all the many campgrounds we have been to how many are located in "not so nice " parts of towns.
That aside Pontchartrain Landing is an Oasis on France Rd. It is fenced in and has security. The campsites are fairly spacious with reasonable spacing although when we arrived we could not back into our reserved space because a vehicle in an adjoin sight was not parked properly and we could not make the turn. We have a 41' 5th wheel which can be a challenge at times.
We were moved to an available pull thru right away and it worked out fine. We did have a problem with the 50amp circuit breaker kicking out on occasion - I informed the office and it was changed out right away.
Based on other sites in NOLA this is a great site and we would stay here again.
Really enjoyed the entertainment at the Light House Bar which is on site. Good location to get to areas around NOLA. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent park for New Orleans. The roads leading to the park are awful. There was an industrial smell there, but we got used to it. We took the $6 shuttle twice, which takes you to French Quarter 3 times daily 10am, 3:45pm, 7:45pm, and picks up at 4pm and 8pm. We had a premium waterfront site for 3 nights at Passport America price of approx $39.00 There were boats parked in front of the water, but it was fine. The rows are tight but the sites are nice and wide. We watched the 40 minute movie in the main clubhouse about the Hurricane Katrina. It was ok. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Shuttle bus was convenient.

We camped here in a fifth wheel in December 2015. The campground was conveniently located, close to the French Quarter. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our rate was a passport America rate and, therefore, very reasonable. The park was easy to navigate, with a nice long pull through site. There were not a lot of grassy areas for our two small dogs, but with just a short walk we were able to find some. This campground met all of our needs for our one-night stay in New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Smaller park located in an industrial area. Having said this, park is nice, is gated, and feels safe. We found the harbor police drive through daily and even saw the police eating at the on-site restaurant. We had reservations and all was ready when we arrived. They guide you to your site and make sure everything is OK.

They have sites to fit all sizes of RV. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

They offer a shuttle to the French Quarter, $6, a good deal.

The bar/restaurant has great food at reasonable prices.

Located in a abandoned industrial area with very bad road to the campground. Sites are crushed concrete and not level at all. Some areas have very little of the concrete stuff on them, and it tends to get muddy. The sites are cramped and very close together, and there are many full time tenants that don't keep their spaces neat. Nice staff in the office, and a nice restaurant on the premises. We felt secure behind the gates but it is not an area you want to go for a walk. Wi-Fi didn't work at all during our 5 day stay, even though we were told that they were working on it. The pictures on the website are not representative of what you get.

The $6 shuttle to town is a nice touch, and the driver was right on time every day. We will not stay at this campground again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Level pull through site, crush rock roads and sites, WiFi was not working while we stayed, friendly staff, some activities, dog area, quiet at night, some noise from trucks and airplanes during the day and very dusty if windy. They have a bar and bar food, reasonable transportation into New Orleans. Not sure about anything else. They are in the industrial area but completely fenced. No worse area than the high priced parks in the questionable part of town. Not a resort but a decent reasonable place to stay to visit New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 5 nights under Passport America, which makes this park a good value for New Orleans. Nightly Passport America rate not including taxes...add about 7 more dollars per night.

It can be confusing to get to the park road off the freeway...freeway ramps, turns and narrow urban interior streets find your way here. Some GPS systems are plain wrong, so research your route in advance. Interior roads in park are gravel. We suffered through two days of heavy rain and the park roads became terribly potholed.

It appears that many rigs here are very long term or owned lots. Neighbors around our site left early (6 AM) every day and returned after dark. Rarely saw many people walking around nor rigs entering or leaving as you would expect from a RV park. They also have a sales office?

Shuttle from park to French Quarter cost only $6 p/p, but wasn't convenient for us as the return times to the park were only 4 and 8 PM, so we drove our own vehicle. 15-20 minute drive downtown, but bear in mind that local parking fees are HIGH (big city).

Park utilities worked fine. Small pool, fiberglass hot tub (neither of which we used). Staff appeared to be efficient and friendly. Quiet. Short movie shows daily at 9 AM about wetlands and Katrina. Lots of tour brochures and information at desk.

Overall a nice place to base ourselves for our visit to NOLA. We'd return if coming back. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart, fuel, etc. within 5 minutes.

This was our second visit here so we didn't panic when we approached the park and saw the abandoned industrial buildings nearby. The approach can be a bit off-putting, as can the fact that some GPS units have trouble with the address, but once you overcome the challenge of getting here you will be pleasantly surprised. This is a wonderful waterfront campground. Roadways are wide, gravel spaces are a bit narrow but most are separated by nice landscaping, so privacy isn't an issue. Good water pressure, good 50amp power, decent wifi and adequate cable. There is a wide range of site types ranging from full-hookup basic to country-club luxurious. There's a decent restaurant/bar on the property, a nice pool, a marina, boat rentals and terrific and helpful staff. The only real downside is that the park isn't near the French Quarter, but there is reasonably-priced shuttle service to and from the fun. Rates are high, but this is New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

I wasn't as impressed with this park as some of the other raters. The streets and sites are all pebbles over dirt. The crushed pebbles turn to dust, so everything gets coated in dust. Also, the Wi-Fi didn't work the entire time we were there.

The view of the water was pleasant and the staff was friendly. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Rate for 3 Adults with Passport America discount for normal sites. Have stayed here before and did again due to proximity to New Orleans. Out of town but close enough for convenience. Park runs a return shuttle for $6, good value. Have lovely pool, restaurant, music most nights, good shop, good wi-fi and cable. Gravel sites with OK space however Premium sites have more room but cost more. Not much shade as park is still developing. Would stay here again. Stayed in 38ft motorhome with tow.

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. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Try one of the specialty drinks like the local favorite the Hurricane!

Very convenient location - easy to get to. Hidden among boatyards so be prepared. Very clean and well-kept but very dusty. Very nice staff. Large restaurant/bar - service a little iffy but nice deck and pool. If coming back to New Orleans would definitely stay here. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take shuttle into French Quarter. If staying late we used uber to return without problem. Ask in camp store.

The park is on the edge of Lake Pontchartrain so there is good waterfront. A restaurant on-site is very good. We had the ribs. There is nothing else within walking distance but there are grocery stores within a short driving distance and the park has a shuttle that goes to the French Quarter a few times each day. Our site had little shade and that was a struggle in the heat and humidity of July in New Orleans. This is the best RV park in New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

New Orleans is a great place to visit.

We have been here for 4 years we wouldn't think about moving anywhere else if work didn't force the change. The facilities & amenities are always squared away & gratifying to use. The manager & his staff are always available to make sure that your stay exceeds your expectations. We would recommend this resort to anyone whether it is for a long stay or just a few days. You won't be disappointed. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Lots to do in New Orleans. Paddleboat tours. Bus tours etc
