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.

Tips for other Campers:

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

The only good thing I can say about this park is the gentleman who helped us park was very nice and helpful, and there is a nice view of the marina if you walk to it, and we received 50% off ($37 with passport america).

To start they charge your card in full at the time of booking ($642.26 for 2 weeks stay), so if your plans change, you're out of luck? When we arrived, we were handed our receipt and given a spot number, nothing else was really explained. We received all our info from the guy that helped us into our spot. The spot was tight and gravel, which isn't a big deal.

We ate at the on site restaurant not 1, 2 but 3 times, and were hoping maybe it's just the lunch that has horrible service. . . maybe they are tired from Jazzfest. . . maybe they just don't care? We really wanted to like it, but at the end of the day, the food was sub par, over priced, and the service was beyond lacking.

Onto the amentities. Wifi is "available", but DOESN'T WORK. At all. Cable was good, no problems. There is a dog run but it's far from the property. The shuttle runs 3 times a day 10am, 3:45 and 7:45pm @ $6 pp round trip, not bad, but if you have to take a cab back, the cab drivers don't want to drive that far out, so it was hard to find a ride back and is $20.

Ultimately, I would not stay here again, was sorely disappointed, felt kind of ripped off (even at the $37 p/night) and find their websight terribly misleading. I've worked in the service and hospitality industry my entire life and am usually very understanding, but this I couldn't let pass. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

You realize you're at a good campground when as you're pulling in, you see staff regrading the gravel roads to fill in potholes caused by the recent rains. These people were right on top of everything!

We showed up without a reservation and were able to get a waterfront site for 2 nights. Great service; escorted to our site, directed as we backed in, advised where hookups were on the power box with offer to assist if we wanted. Site was gravel and fairly level - does slope off on the back and far sides a bit. Got a bit dusty from traffic on the gravel once things dried out though. Landscaping between sites was a very nice feature - palms, flowering trees and even lights.

Bathroom/showers were clean although there was a large cockroach in the one we used that was a bit unnerving for her but we understand that in NOLA to expect them from time to time. Only downside to the showers is that the toilet and shower are the same space; if both rooms were being used, have to find another bathroom to do your business.

Dog run was hard to find, map showed it one place but it turns out it was relocated to another field - through a muddy storage/overflow/work camper lot so we did not use it.

We will stay here again on our travels. Price is Passport with tax. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Restaurant/bar upstairs from office - good food. Shuttle for $6 pp to French Quarter - 3 times a day in, only 2 trips back.

Nice RV park. The spots were nice and had nice landscaping between each spot. Bathrooms were clean but they could use a few more to accommodate the number of campers. Staff was friendly and helpful. We felt safe and secure in this park. We would stay here again if we were back in this area. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Travel Trailer.

The good, close to French Quarter. The gentleman who showed us to our site (and I use the term loosely) was very helpful and a delight to talk to. Even took our tow dolly and parked it back in the back out of the way. There was only one gal in the office at check in and she was trying desperately to keep all who came in helped, but even she seemed frustrated at times. Stayed a total of 10 days (7 of them we were gone on a cruise). Quite the mud hole in overflow and no additional discount for parking in the mud pit. For 10 days we spent as much for camping as we spend for a month in sunny Southern California. I asked why our bill was so high, and the girl in the office said it was because of taxes and the additional fee for some type of cancellation insurance or whatever(which I do not recall being told at time of booking.). Did have electric, a make shift water hose for our water needs but did not drink it because it tasted like rubber. No sewer. Seems that they have you by the short. We had a great time at the French Quarter Festival, but it will be a long time before I will return to this RV campground. I would rather drive a little farther than to be fleeced again. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Anything in New Orleans.

This large park on the lake is conveniently close to New Orleans. A little spendy, and the WiFi is spotty, but their $6 rt shuttle bus 3 times a day, the on-site restaurant and bar, the nicely stocked convenience store, cable TV, the waterfront, the overall friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, make this park a pleasant place to stay while visiting New Orleans. I would definately stay here again. The shuttle was a fine way to begin to explore New Orleans without stress since you don't have to battle traffic in an unfamiliar downtown. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The shuttle bus leaves at 10AM, 3:45PM, and 7:45PM heading to the French Quarter, a 15 minute drive. And picks up at 4PM and 8PM. Plenty of time to explore, take a paddle wheel trip, arrange for tours. Many fine places to eat or shop in New Orleans of course, and the parks on-site restaurant is pretty good too.

Best tip is that you should plan on staying here several days to enjoy much that New Orleans has to offer and don't let the 10% tax and high prices for everything be a bother.

We stayed in a Presidential site....hence the cost...nice hottub, grill, patio and ambiance. It really was a lovely park. Check in was easy (though a bit of a a wait with only one person working the desk) and there was a nice gentleman that helped guide us into our spot (even though he probably didn't need to....it was pretty basic.) We had enough room for our 35' RV and could park our Jeep behind it. The site was gravel but level. There are some nice trees, but they limited our ability to put out the awnings....but this didn't matter since the weather was so nice. The pictures on the website are a bit deceiving....it is on a canal of industrial businesses...so the view is not as nice as you would expect with a waterfront. That being said, if you do your research, you should know this in advance. I thought it was well maintained. Hookups were reliable and trash was picked up every morning. They have a nice bar that frequently has bands and occasional bingo. Bands were good. Yes....occasionally they were loud, but nothing that bothered us. Then again, we are on vacation and don't go to bed early. The shuttle to the French Quarter was nice...prompt and adjusted quickly when they had too many people to fit into one shuttle. Another was there within 5 minutes. If you are towing a car or bike....everything worthwhile is within 15-20min so location is good. I never felt unsafe....despite the reviews regarding bars on windows in nearby neighborhoods. Here's my beef....wifi. We didn't even get a signal to try to see if it was good. At a presidential site with that cost.....they need to get that fixed. Unfortunately, I felt myself and everyone else who was complaining about the wifi was getting fed the same lines about the fact that "they are working on it." Just be honest and tell us that it is unlikely we will get any wifi service. Invest in a bigger, more powerful, booster....it seems simple to me for these big RV grounds to provide adequate wifi in this day and age...especially for the price I paid (I'm at a small RV park for 1/4 the price now and I have wifi that is good!!!) However....I would stay here again. I read the reviews before I came so I wasn't surprised in the lack of wifi.....I just wish they would advertise that the wifi is limited. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Very mixed feelings about this park. Sent in an on-line request for a pull through site. After several days with no response, I called and was told that only one back-in spot was available. I was assured that we would fit. Not even close! The site was short and small, the road was very narrow, and the turning radius was blocked by other campers' cars which couldn't be moved. We were sent to the overflow lot. The lot was made of cracked concrete, gravel and dirt. Due to the recent rain, the whole park was muddy and filled with large puddles. We had electric and water but no cable nor sewer. A honey wagon was available upon request. They charged us the same $53 per night as the back-in site we originally been assigned even though we lacked some of the amenities. The ground crew was efficient and very helpful. The girls in the office were not. They were either disorganized, disinterested or nasty. They were not familiar enough with the park or the sites to effectively make appropriate site assignments based on the size and type of RV. The shuttle was worth the $6 round trip fee and the drivers were very accommodating. The park was close to the French Quarter but located in a sketchy industrial area. There was a security gate which was locked each night at 11. A code was given at check in. The on-site bar/restaurant had live music nightly which stopped promptly at 11. The fried chicken and cat fish were good but the fries were lukewarm and soggy. The bartender also waited on the tables. She was excellent! Due to its proximity to the French Quarter, we would consider staying here again if and only if we could have one of the large pull throughs. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for seeing New Orleans. They have a shuttle bus that takes campers to and from the French Quarter area twice a day. Campground feels very safe. Campground also has a restaurant with good food. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are in New Orleans make sure to visit the World War II museum. It is the best I have seen and covers both the Pacific and Atlantic campaigns in detail.

Staff was friendly and accommodating. Grounds are kept clean and manicured, but little grass. Large, fenced pet area. All roads and sites are wide and level with gravel and maneuvering a big rig was easy. Ours was a pullthru and long enough for the camper and toad. Utilities were up to spec. Most sites have bushes or a vegetation buffer in-between. Wifi was OK, but slow during busy times. Pool/hot tub was maintained. Not much noise from the industry near by or the neighbors. Location affects the cost. The French Road from the South is rough, but pretty easy to get off/on I-10. 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.

Unbelievably bad. Far too expensive for what you get. Muddy.

The park uses crushed concrete to cover the roads (not gravel). This crushed concrete has nails and metal in it!!! One of their golf carts has a magnet on it that was literally COATED with nails. If I had not seen it in person I would not believe that an RV park would spread dirt containing nails - while walking we found several nails and cut wires. About 1/4 of the washers/dryers were out of service, apparently this is true all the time.

- One bright spot, the shuttle driver was nice and he was right on time. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Places to visit include: French Quarter, WWII Museum, Saint Charles streetcar.

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.

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.

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.
