This would be a great CG if it wasn't for the dusty gravel interior roads. Pad are fairly level gravel. We were on the water so the dust wasn't too bad. Utilities all worked good. WIFI at site was very slow, but usable. Would stay here again if in area. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Grayline city tour. Paddle boat, French Quaters

This is a gated RV Park and we felt safe here. We had a pull through with 50 amp service. The people running the check in area are super helpful and you can buy tour tickets through them. They run a shuttle into town twice a day and it is $6 a person for the day. It did not work with our tours so we took a cab and that was $22 for the ride. The place is quiet and very clean. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Take a lunch trip on the Natchez paddle wheel. We also enjoyed the Grayline town tour. We had Muffaletta's from Central Grocery and beignets at Café du Monde. We need to return to see other things.

This is one of those campgrounds that looks better on paper than in person. We were placed in a site on the water, which we appreciated. The chap who showed us to our site was fabulous. On the other hand, the pool was freezing, and the jacuzzi was above ground, much like a jacuzzi people might have in their backyard. The waterfall was totally unimpressive. The showers and bathroom had cement floors, dreary and dark, but seemed clean. The proximity to the French Quarter is a big plus. Yes, approaching the campground is a bit scary, as others have said. We would stay here again if we wanted to visit New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Joint is good for ribs, and not touristy at all. Banana Foster is a must at Brennan's - but don't go in cut offs!

Tried to stay at French Quarter RV Resort because of walking distance to the FQ, but they were booked for Jazz Festival and cost $120+. Found this little gem in Pontchartrain Landing RV and Marina. It isn't walking-distance-close, but it is half the price, flat lots and Uber drivers quickly picked us up and delivered us wherever we wanted to go. Quiet, all gravel. WiFi stinks, but that's typical. Would stay here again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Wonderful RV resort right on a Marina. There are some waterfront sites that have outdoor kitchens and hot tubs! We opted for a standard site which was small and narrow but the RV and our car fit fine. No room to spare though! The sites are gravel and level. Nice decorative areas between sites. Park is very clean. Upon our arrival we were greeted very warmly by a lovely woman named Katie. She was very informative about not only the park, but the ins and outs of getting into downtown. This resort provides a shuttle ($6 pp for allday) to the French Quarter. It's a 6 mile trip and worth not having to find parking downtown. The shuttle runs at 10 am, 4 pm and pickup is 4pm and 8 pm. The resort also has a very nice bar/ restaurant. Food was very good (ate there twice) and on our final night there, we were treated to the same Katie that greeted us in the office, as our bartender! She is quite an asset to the owners, I hope they know that! Nice pool area, hot tub, and video poker. The road leading into the park is a disaster- large potholes but maneuverable. Resort is gated and we felt very secure. Definitely will come back! We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

French Quarter is a must! Park shows a Movie on Hurricane Katrina every day- worth the 45 minutes!

Stayed for 7 nights and it was great! Located along the Industrial Canal up towards the Lake around marinas and yacht builders. After seeing the location and tightness of the other local resort we were glad we chose Pontchartrain Landing. Not only is it run by nice people that know how to run a campground, it's kept up quite well. We had good power, water pressure, and plenty of cable TV options. The store, pool, and restaurant onsite are all very nice. We did get hit with $99/weekend night because of Jazzfest which was understandable. A few permanent units in the park, but all very well kept up with no problems. Great security that rides around most of the night watching the place and we felt very safe. They have a shuttle that goes down to the French Quarter at $6/pp r/t, but we didn't use it. Plenty of parking to be found down there during the week. 10-15 minutes to the Quarter. Just wish they paved this place because they grade it almost every other day, when dry it's a dust-bowl, when wet you have that sand/gravel everywhere. Be forewarned: like most of New Orleans, the streets getting to this place are a disaster. You'll want to go very slow down France Rd. Outside of France Rd. down towards I-10 there are areas that look like a war zone, but we never had problems or felt unsafe. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Rouse's Grocery store is about 2 miles away and excellent.

Nice park, had site on the lake (higher price due to Jazz Fest). The only issue other than the rain from hell dumped over 12 inches was the WiFi did not work at your site which for the price should have been working. The only place it worked was if you went to the office or the restaurant. There is no excuse for the WiFi not working which is all the time, not just this visit. Close to most everything you would want to see and do. All hook ups worked well, great water pressure. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 6 nights exploring New Orleans. Less than 15 minutes to the French Quarter. Our site was a back-in premium waterfront. Moored nearby were sailboats. Overlooked Seabrook Marine Repair. Site was gravel with plenty of room for the car. Very quiet park. Security gate with a code for after hours access. Road to the park is in pretty poor shape, but interior roads are good. Never could access the WiiFi. Cable TV included a couple of movie channels. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Provided us with a map to nearby grocery stores, a coupon for Uber and the numbers of taxi service including the address of their facility for ease in return. There is a shuttle to the French Quarter several time a day for $6 per passenger. They were repainting the pool and the area looked very nice. There is a restaurant on site. Every day they show a 30 minute movie about Katrina. We would return if we are in the area again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Basin Street Visitors Center is one of the stops for the Red Hop On/Off Bus and$5 for 10 hours. One day we walked the 6 blocks down St. Louis Street to the French Quarter. Premium Parking lot P401 on Decatur was our parking lot for the day we took the Natchez Steamboat Dinner Jazz Cruise.

This park is difficult to rate. It has an excellent clubhouse, pool, store, and a bar that serves pretty good food at a reasonable price compared to every place else in New Orleans. Those are the positives. The negatives are the road to the park is very rough. The interior roads and sites are entirely gravel and dirt with them rapidly approaching just dirt. There are low spots that filled with water and mud when it rained. We rented a pull-in, "Super Site" that faced the ship canal. The site we were assigned was so narrow there was no room for us to sit at the side of our coach with our slides out to watch TV. As a matter of fact, we had to turn sideways to walk between our slide outs and the landscaping to get to our toad parked sideways at the rear of our site. This wasn't a huge problem since we didn't come to NO to watch TV or even sit at the RV site but, when you're paying an average of $79/night (with Good Sam discount) it would be nice to get a reasonable space. This park has everything from Marathon Prevost buses to pop-up campers. The resort has a shuttle to/from the French Quarter that goes round trip 5 times per day, but they charge $6 per person per day to use it. Given the price that is charged for the not so nice sites, it would be good to include the shuttle service for free. There is cable TV with a very weak signal and I was never able to connect to the WiFi. The problem with N.O. is there are very few options to choose from that are within reasonable distance to the city. The only other decent park in N.O. is the French Quarter RV Resort which is always full and costs from $95-$150 per night depending on the dates you want. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Park is gravel and if a lot of cars not on their sites it can be tight. The restaurant on site is nice and makes for fun evenings. The road leading to it is not scary but is rough and goes by some small shipyards. The park is close to French Quarter and St Bernard Parrish so it is great for sightseeing. It does get a little muddy after a rain. I stay here when in New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

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.

There are sink holes in an unlighted area behind 2 RV sites. There are several and are over 4' deep and lead down into the water of the river. There are timbers and concrete pieces in the holes.

After I fell into one, It took 2 days and 2 requests to get them to put yellow caution tape around the area. The management is non-responsive.

Not a safe RV park. It is located in an industrial area - down a poorly maintained road next to a marina.

The shower & laundry were clean (until I washed my muddy clothes & self). We couldn't use the 1st site we were assigned as it was not very level.

There is an on-site store & restaurant. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

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.

Park is on the water in a boat industrial area, but it is just a short drive to the French Quarter. Sites are tight but adequate. WiFi worked some of the time for email and browsing. Gate is closed at night. We would stay here again if visiting New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Ten minutes to the French Quarter. Don't be intimidated by the area as you drive to the park.
