The Perfect park for touring New Orleans. The water and electric are conveniently located. The concrete pads are lower in the back but not too bad. The sites are spacious. The park is relatively quiet. The best part is the convenience to the city. It's about 15 minutes to the WWII museum. Hop on 90, cross the river, get off on the right at the second exit (Camp St) are you are there. Going to the French Market? Take 90 over the bridge, get on I10E and get off to the right at the Esplanade exit. Turn right and go all the way down to the end and turn right on Decatur. We parked behind the Market and had no traffic problems at all. Or, as others suggest, you can take the ferry. We had no problems getting in and out by car though. This park is perfect for what we wanted. I highly recommend it over any other park in New Orleans. This park is safe, secure, and has a park patrol. The only thing missing are sewer hookups. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

If you want to be close to New Orleans...this is it. Great fish market just outside and a short drive into downtown. This is a SP. Sites are nicely arranged in two loops with lots of green space in between. Very private feeling. It is swampy, so I imagine there are bugs in the summer...but that is the south. We loved it here...very quiet and private feeling. Also felt very safe, with park trucks patrolling regularly and limited access. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

check out the fish market in Westwego...

Great value. large sites but all back-ins. Well maintained and secured. Close to New Orleans - about 15 minutes to the French Quarter. Easy in and out- well definitely go again. Showers were a little dated. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Seafood market about a block from State Park well worth a visit.

Great place to stay while visiting New Orleans. The park has good information about getting around in NO. The sites are well designed, most are concrete pads, and have concrete picnic area with table and grill. Many of the sites have wooden decks as well. The WIFI was decent, electric and water were good too. No problem with the bathrooms. Only two advisories are the fire ants and the unfriendly office staff. The fire ants are manageable but it would have been good to know about them going in. The office staff are not rude but they could be more pleasant and friendly. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the ferry across to New Orleans, it will save you time and $$. Cost for parking was $5 some days, ferry cost $1 for seniors, $2 for adults. Be sure to have correct change for the ferry.

Can not dispute the "RAMP". We unhooked as suggested and no problem. These are the widest space we have been on this trip. Normally RV Parks would but in 2 more spaces between the rigs as this is laid out. Almost have to yell at your neighbors to communicate. Most spaces have a deck, table and fire ring. Bathroom was clean and water was hot. If they would put in sewer at each spot, I would give this place a 10. Speed limit inside the park is 15 MPH.... was warned not to exceed that, will get a ticket if U get over 20 MPH. Some spaces are not good for Sat TV. Will stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About 15 miles from French Quarter. A fresh fish/Shrimp location just to the right of the park. Paid $3.50 for a pound of Shrimp, caught that day. Whole shrimp, so U must clean them.

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.
