Bayou Segnette is close to our son and his family so we will continue to use it. However, it is getting dated and in need of maintenance. The bathhouse is getting run down; urinals missing from the wall, shower and vanity facets that don't work and shower doors that don't close or latch. A single dump station for a park this size and with not site sewer hookups is a traffic jam waiting to happen, especially on Monday morning. Park rules state that no vehicle parking on the grass. But we found sites with parties going on and several vehicles parked on the site as well as along the side of the road. Looks like not only maintenance but overall pride in the facility has declined. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived on a Sunday and only 1 ranger was on duty for checking people in for the day use areas as well as for boat dock and camping areas. I must say she was extremely good and handled the work loaded extremely well. Later in the stay we had the unfortunate experience of dealing a lady ranger that was surly and needed to be behind a desk out of sight. The sites were very spacious but the dump station was shut down. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Beware of the ants. Their bite hurts and leaves you itching. Their nests are located along the edge of the asphalt pad. Just outside the park is a fresh seafood market located a 1/4 mile to the east of the entrance.

This is our go to park whenever we visit the New Orleans area. All the sites are similar in size and 'levelness'. If you need to do laundry you may want to chose a site close to the restroom buildings as that is where the free machines are - yes, free! 50 amp and water at sites with an accessible when departing dump station. Verizon and Satellite access is not a problem. The park does have Wifi but we were not able to connect to it from our site. Rates are increasing on 03/01/2017 to $25 a night with a big bump to $33 a night for weekends! Still a good value given it's proximity to New Orleans and other attractions. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take a drive out to Lafitte and have lunch at Bouttes - closed on Mondays. This is the 'non-tourist' side of New Orleans and is home to the majority of the shrimp fleet. Good food and you will be eating with the locals. Also, the fish market next to the park has very good, fresh seafood at a reasonable prices.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the country. Huge sites, impeccably maintained, quiet refuge from the city. Easy access to the French Quarter via the ferry. We were here for Mardi Gras on this trip and loved the ability to see all the fun while being able to retreat to this lovely park in the evening. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive the twenty minutes to Algiers Point, park on street or in the open pay lot nearby. Ferries run on the half and quarters and are a quick ten minute trip across. Bring your bike or dog along to explore the city (no cars).

Sites are paved, plenty long, and hook ups in good location. Lots of marshy land around the park, so it can be damp. We used this location to visit New Orleans, a little far out, but traffic not bad if you wait until after rush hour. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visited New Orleans twice during our stay. Parking was convenient and not too costly. Day 1 took city bus tour at cost of $39 per person. It was on and off, so you could get off and sightsee and then catch next bus. Day 2 we visited WWII museum. Our cost was $22 each, with me being a veteran. They really were the "Greatest Generation"....be sure to watch the movie narrated by Tom Hanks.

Second time here. Great location, away from Nola but easy access. Great sea food in the area. Good cell coverage, TV local channels, wifi up and down. This time of year: no reservation needed. Come in before 9pm, but after 5pm park and register the next day. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bayou Segnette State Park is in Westwego, Louisiana. Great location to stay to visit New Orleans. We spent one day in the French Quarter and another at the World War II Museum. 50A & water sites, central dump station. We would stay here again.

We like this park for its paved roads and sites, some of which have wood decks. Some sites are more spacious than others but they all have good-sized pads & patios. Unfortunately the grounds and facilities are looking neglected. There is litter scattered around the walkways and wooded areas. The wifi used to work well, but we found it basically useless on this visit, very frustrating. We did not see much of the staff, and rules did not appear to be enforced - cars on grass, unattended fires, noise, quiet hours. There is a lot of water nearby, so come prepared for mosquitoes in the evening. In spite of this, it is still a good place to stay when visiting NO. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

We had an excellent stay at Bayou Segnette State Park. The staff was friendly (helped us get checked in early even though the site we reserved online was still taken). The sites were large with a picnic table, firepit and a grill. Restrooms were clean, free showers, nice hot water. The park itself was quiet and beautiful while being just 30 mins outside the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Was OK for the area. Not a big fan of the area for camping. Hot and humid for me. Qualifications aside, the campground was nice. It was clean, had power for A/C, and was very convenient to downtown NOLA. We arrived late night and had to go in the back way after-hours entrance, but it was fine. Site was level side-to-side and we had enough room to stretch out. We backed up to a bayou and that was nice. There were a lot of bugs, however. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park. The sites are long and concrete. Very spacious. All have a patio, either wood or concrete. All sites are back-ins.The camp hosts are friendly. We stayed here for a week in a 40' fifth-wheel. The only thing lacking is a sewer hook-up. We love the parks proximity to airboat rides and to Algers Point. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to New Orleans. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Really great park with lots of features including a wave pool, walking trails, huge boat launch area, free laundry facilities (2 washers and dryers per loop which worked just fine), and nice big level sites. My only complaint was there was trash in my fire ring and when I went to clean it out got bit by several fire ants in the process. They have tons of staff onsite, so I felt the rings should have been cleaned. I liked the walking trails but would recommend they put a raised one through the marsh for bird watchers. We did have a pair of nesting night herons right behind our camper though and spent many hours watching them. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

New Orleans is 30 miles away and this park has easy access to a ferry you can take there. Day use area has a wave pool and there is a separate pool for the campers. There is a huge boat launch area as well and around the corner from the campground are tons of shops that sell local seafood. Really great locations

Great state park, we had a beautiful site. Very spacious and set up well. It was in a great location to visit New Orleans. We took the ferry from Algiers Point, which was a good suggestion. The check-in person was not very friendly; we arrived during a rain storm and she was not clear about where to park. A different time the same person was short tempered. Otherwise this was one of our favorite campgrounds due to the location and spacious site. Also, the free laundry was a plus. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very convenient park to New Orleans area. We have stayed here several times and it seems the restrooms and showers are starting to show their age. But they were reasonable clean with plenty of hot water. Some of the sites have wooden decks that are real handy if it been raining. All sites have concrete patios with a table at the real of the site. Nothing beside the RV means you have wet soggy grass outside the door. We will continue to use this park as a base while visiting our family and enjoying New Orleans. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is the ideal base for visiting New Orleans and the areas around it. The cost is also a bargain compared to the limited alternatives. It really is just 20 minutes to the French Quarter by car, or take an hour and use the Algiers Point ferry instead. Take time to explore the Algiers Point neighborhood, too.

The sites are all spacious and paved. Grassy areas get pretty wet when it rains. Many sites have some shade. Laundry is free. Lots of families and kids. It gets busy on weekends, but most state parks do. It is secure and well patrolled. Airboat tours passing down the slough along the street side of the park are very noisy and run into the evening. No formal, fenced dog park. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.
