This campground was well maintained and the staff were friendly. I was impressed that there was a full service restaurant available with music on site. It is definitely geared toward adults though. The pool area was small and we found ourselves going at night with our children as to not disturb the sunbathers. There is a lot of industry getting to the campground, and it doesn't appear to be in the best area. But once inside the campground, it's like a different world. There are two laundry facilities and it takes quite some time for the clothes to dry. This is something we were not used to living in the west. We would stay here again if ever in NOLA. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

This is a great resort they have developed in the past few years. With their shuttle system you are 15 minutes into the French Qtr. They charge $6 per day per person. If you go in and back then back in- $6. They have a restaurant/bar on site. We never ate there, but used the bar. Live music 6 days a week. My wife and friend use the hot tub and said it was fine. Pool is not heated, but looked nice. They have a good sized dog run. The Wi-Fi was not up to par. It went up and down often. This could be improved upon to improve the experience. It is breezy there at times and the gravel roads can kick up some dust when RV's are coming and going. We would definitely recommend this park. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shuttle times in and out are basically 10am, 4pm and 8pm.

Clean park with well maintained gravel drives and sites. Located in industrial area but is well secured. Very little noise. On-site restaurant and lounge. Would stay here again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Motoring into New Orleans and into this park was a little harrowing. You have to go through a suspect part of town, then after you reach French Street (the road on which the park is located) and turn into the gate, there's a sigh of relief. The park itself is very well kept. Sites are level and spacious. There are planters with palm trees that give added separation and a sense of privacy. Picnic tables provided as well. Staff very friendly and helpful - they gave us everything we needed to know when we arrived. Maintenance is ongoing daily. Gate to the front is closed at 10 p.m. and park is only accessible with a key code after that time. Dog run was large and a very nice compliment. We felt very safe within the boundaries of the park (most being water) despite the nearby run down neighborhood. Laundry is small but functional. $1.75 wash / $1.75 dry. Getting on the freeway to head downtown (probably a 15 minute drive) was easy. The park also offer a shuttle ($6 pp round trip) that departs a few times per day for the French Quarter. There is a restaurant on site with good food and drink, and lots of televisions for sporting events. Would have given this park a higher rating, except for the fact that the Wifi wasn't operational. Since I do work from the road, Wifi is very important (and they advertise that they provide that service), but can tell you - it's a joke, so bring your own if you're going to need it. Check traffic conditions, as you are going through town to get here and peak traffic can be a bear to drive through if you don't time it properly. We'd stay here again if in the area. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit places other than the French Quarter. There is so much more to do.

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. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

The best way to describe this park is to say that it has great potential, but needs attention. Glad I was paying the Passport America discounted rate because I would have been disappointed at full price. The pool is small and was closed with no explanation. The dust from the park roads is terrible. It's within reasonable distance from the French Quarter and the shuttle is handy, but it only runs a few times a day and it costs $6/day. I looked into the washrooms without using them. One was closed, the other was due for a good cleaning. 2 of the 3 washers/dryers were out of order. The sites are tight together, unless you get into the premium lots. The Wi-Fi is available in the main building. One good point is the on-site restaurant. we had some really good ribs and Cajun cooking there. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

First, the positives--close to downtown; shuttle to and from the French Quarter several times a day-$6 per person, friendly staff, some discounts available here at a better rate than the vendor--the Hop On Hop Off bus for example, new and upgraded eating BUT this place is hard to find towing a toad with a big motorhome and the rv park itself is in an industrial area. Probably better to call and get directions rather than use the gps-we used map quest, google maps, AAA maps, and GPS maps and none worked really well. And the main drawback--it is like being in the dust bowl of Kansas and I am being totally serious. The roads had gravel many years ago and now just dust, dust, and MORE dust no matter how slow people drive. If it is raining,well then, it is mud. This has not improved since the last time we were here. We don't plan to stay here again unless the interior roads are paved and/or gravel(lots of it) has recently been put down. There are plenty of poopy bags for man's best friend and a grassy, fenced in area as well. I would rather have paid $5 more per day and had a nice park interior. The rate we did pay was Passport America. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

I would not return to this park! We stayed at a waterfront "super site". The sites are so close we could barely get our window awnings deployed. When walking from the car to the door, we had to turn sideways to clear the coach slide outs. The sites and roads are dirt/gravel and becomes a dust bowl every time a car or coach drives by! Parked on the water you have a great view of a series of dilapidated warehouses on the opposite shore. The good: the office staff was very friendly. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Make sure you turn to the right when you come to French street. No signage for the street name. GPS and phone directions don't work well in that area. Staff was nice checking. Nice that they a shuttle to the French quarter with 10,4,7 times. They can schedule trips also. Sites are OK; strange layouts with gravel and dusty road inside and coming into the campground. Sites close to each other. Quiet. Their Wi-Fi hacked my email. I let them know in the office that their code was open. The pool was closed. No signage as to repairing or what. Good location for the area be sure to ask directions for leaving as that is confusing. Seems to have workers staying so you might have your neighbor early 5 AM starting up the truck and running it for 10 minutes next to you. Verizon voice and MiFi worked OK. We would stay here again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with great view of marina and river. Needs a little tender care - especially in laundry room - only 1/2 of washers and dryers work. Would like it if office stayed open later than 5:00. But those are just minor details for a great place to stay. Felt very safe in the gated park. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

A tropical retreat, nestled in the industrial outskirts of New Orleans, this resort/campground on the water offers a safe, relaxing refuge while visiting "the big easy". Although you might find the area after you get off of the main highway the road leading to Pontchartrain Landing somewhat concerning, once you turn into the campground you will find it to be a lovely spot with nicely landscaped level sites and great amenities. We highly recommend taking the shuttle bus that they run into the city. The 15 minute ride is convenient, comfortable and the driver is most accommodating. The entire staff if friendly, helpful and informative. We stayed here 5 nights using the Passport America rate. We enjoyed this park and would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Great park with great amenities. The landscaping is exceptional for an RV park. Sites are large and easy access for big rigs. Staff is friendly and helpful. They have a van to the French Quarter, which is handy. Restaurant on site was very good in food and service. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

This is located on the river in a marina type area but we felt very safe in this part of town so close to downtown New Orleans. The campground is very clean and the staff very helpful. We will always stay here when we return to this area. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.
