Sites here are all paved, back in's with water and electric. As mentioned in an earlier review the wi-fi is useless. TV via batwing and Verizon broadband were both very good. Most sites are fairly level, but some have settled in places making them 'lumpy'. To clarify an earlier post about the new 'ramp' at the entrance, think 'loading dock'. It is a monster and if you are towing with a MH, unhook before attempting to climb up. It is appx. 3 feet high and had our dolly ramps dragging the ground. The ramp is inside the park at the entrance office, but it is a two lane road with plenty of room to unhook your toad before it. This was our third and last time at this CG. We will drive in from the north side of the lake next time we want to visit New Orleans. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About the only places for a cold one are the Swamp Inn and Mona Lisa which are both behind the fish market next door. Both allow smoking and are just local dives.

Very nice campgrounds. Sites and grounds are well maintained. Level paved back-ins with paved picnic table area. Restrooms/showers are clean. Free laundry facility was very nice. Great rate/great value! We took the ferry over to New Orleans. It is a drive to get to the ferry station, and we had to pay to park, but it was much less than the cost of parking in town and a lot less hassle. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites are not too close to each other. We had a wooden deck and a concrete pad. Convenient to New Orleans. The grass was very high. I would stay there again to go sightseeing. Not the park for me to hang out at campsite. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second visit to the park, the last time was about 7 years ago, much has changed. Firstly the front office has been modified, nice, except that the ramp they have put in is very sharp and my coach scraped part of its front undercarriage on the ramp; it also has happened to a few others by the look of it. The showers needed cleaning better; it looks like the cleaning staff don't own a scrub brush and the soap dispensers were empty for the 2 weeks that we were there.They were no urinals in either men's washroom. The park also has free WiFi, it is at best, abysmal, even right in front of the towers. The park itself was clean and well groomed. We can see a problem with bugs when it gets warmer due to the close proximity of standing water to the camping sites. There is a problem with the park standards. There were a few questionable RV's that came in; converted delivery vans, people camping in cars only, old TVs outside on sites. The best was when some kind soul had helped themselves to one of our pins out of the tow bar, nice. This is the last time to Bayou Segnette for us. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots to do, lots of terrible drivers, beware.

The park itself is huge. The campground is just a small part of the park. We were camping here to be close to New Orleans and didn't take advantage of anything the park had to offer. Most of the amenities were geared towards warmer weather and it was colder when we were there in January. There is a lot of standing water in marshy areas and I would be concerned about bug activity in warmer weather. I liked the fact the camping area was arranged so that all the sites backed up to a natural area as opposed to backing up to another trailer. A number of the sites had decks attached directly to the site that I would look for if we were to stay there again. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great place to stay and visit New Orleans. Drive down to the ferry and take it across the river. Sites were great. Would have given it a 10 if it had sewer hook ups. We stayed there 3 nights. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

See New Orleans while parked here. Mass transit in New Orleans is good. No need to drive into the city.

This park is a jewel. Clean, secure, free wifi, free laundry. The sites are large and spacious. A lot of people come to fish on the weekends; some get kind of rowdy and drunk. That was the only negative. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

An easy drive to New Orleans.

A very nice Louisiana State Park very close to NOLA! The facilities are very good, sites are large and level. The CG is close to food shopping. This is an excellent jumping off point to visit New Orleans and the plantations up the river (about one hour away.) There is a ferry from Algiers to the base of Canal Street which makes visiting the city a piece of cake. We would stay here again. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park locate close to New Orleans. Park entrance/check in office has been been remodeled and is very nice. Traffic flow at the entrance is a little confusing to the first time visitor. Just follow the signs and you will be OK. Be aware of the "Speed Tables". Even at a crawl, I bottomed the hitch shank. Camp sites are large, comfortable, clean and, for the most part private. There is some traffic noise but you get the feel of being out of the city. After-hours access is awkward but not a big deal. I would suggest you familiarize yourself with its location during the daylight hours however. It's can be a challenge to find at night. Overall rating would be higher if sites had sewer connection. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here 2 nights. The campsites are spacious, all back in, with tables, grills, and fire pits (bring your own wood). Roads are good. The restrooms and play areas were clean. Just what you would expect from a state maintained campground. The campground is elevated above a low swampy area. We found many mosquitoes in the camper, but they didn't bother us much outside. I bet they are terrible in the summer. We heard gnats are bad in the summer too. The campground is nicely kept and rangers patrol just enough that you know they are there if you need them. The campground is very close to NO, about 3 miles close and there is some road noise as the campground is just off a major highway, but it didn't bother us at night at all. We will definitely stay here again as long as it is in winter. Many sites had wood decks. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Minutes away from NO, fishing is very popular.

This park is currently being renovated including registration office. Right now they have a one person booth which is ridiculous because blocks all lanes going into park even though you are checked in. You can sit there for long periods of time just to get in. Not enough signs directing you to camping area. Strange way of getting in and out of park after hours which is a completely different route than during daylight hours. Would stay here again but not impressed. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the most beautiful state parks we have seen. The sites are huge with wooden decks 12 x 16 at most of the sites but not all which included picknick tables and bar B Que. The restrooms and showers were clean and free laundry which were nice. They had a very nice pool and also a water slide with lots of playground equipment. They had great walking areas for walking with lots of wildlife. It was also fairly close to catch the ferry into New Orleans for the day. They give you a lot of info when you check in tellling you about the area and a map for getting around. The park was well patrolled. Would definitely stay there again.

First night is $34. Clean, quiet park set in a beautiful, grassy, wooded area. Paved roads with most sites level (ours had a pothole). Lack of sewer merits a one star reduction and lack of a heated pool (summer only) and other amenities merits a one star reduction. Although the width and arrangement of sites, allowing each RV much more space than in typical parks, almost made up for the lack of a sewer (dump station available on exit), it was crowded when full since it appears lots of locals bring their friends. Lots of dog walking areas, including along a nearby bayou. Internet was slow (insufficient bandwidth) and some pages are blocked by the state (another star reduction). Antenna TV from New Orleans was great. Free laundry was a plus also. It is conveniently close to the Algiers ferry to N.O. We would stay again. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful state park. It is across the river from New Orleans. We talked to some folks staying in a park in the city and they said it was so cramped and noisy they were thinking about moving and when we told them how quiet and spacious this park is they were for sure moving. We made use of the ferry from Algiers to N.O. and wandered around the French Quarter for awhile. The park gives you easy directions to the ferry. It costs $2.00 to ride one way (exact change required) and parking is $5.00. An easy way to go to avoid downtown traffic. We didn't use them but there are trolleys, buses, and horse carriages to take you around if you don't want to walk around the French Quarter. We also drove out to the Barataria Preserve which was well worth the visit. You can explore the bayou on your own terms and it's free. A cheap alternative to the pricey swamp tours. Water & electric hookups and WIFI worked well and the shower/restroom facilities were nice but bring an extra towel to stand on to dry off as the floors get wet. No sewer hookup but they have a dump station. No cable either but quite a few channels on the antenna. I would surely recommend this place if you are in the area but you better make reservations. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park not far outside New Orleans so it's an excellent base to tour the city. Sites are wide, long and easy to back into. Not much shade and mosquitoes were ferocious at night. If you plan to use the restrooms / showers, be sure to reserve a site close as it can be a long walk from some sites. Laundry is FREE! Verizon voice and data were excellent, camp Wi-Fi was slow and limited. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.
