There were unoccupied, big rig sites during Thanksgiving week. Verizon voice and MiFi coverage were strong. Previous reviews expressed concerns over the industrial setting, but we did not share those concerns. There were some traffic and train noise, but the sound levels were not very loud. The RV Park itself is attractive, with lots of late-model motorhomes and trailers. We arrived during a million-dollar expansion of the guest facilities. There is a nearby supermarket, but other types of shopping and services required a 30-minute or more excursion. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice views on some sites. Dusty. Some employees helpful and friendly; some, not so much. Wi-Fi is terrible. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 7 / 10 ]
We stayed here on a Sunday night in October. The rate was PPA. Even though most of the previous reviews are fairly positive, I really don't understand complaints about "industrial area, abandoned warehouses, and bad area". Actually, I find the view of the warehouses, yacht repair facility, etc. kind of interesting. The flowering bushes and small palms planted between the sites made the park attractive. As for comments about the so called bad neighborhood on the other side of the wall, go back to your gated community. We had a level, full hook up, back-in site with 26 channel cable TV and WI-FI that worked for us. Most sites are back-in or pull-in in the case of some waterfront sites. There is also a row of about 20 pull-throughs. Many sites can not handle larger RVs. As others have mentioned, there is a bar with limited menu restaurant, and sometimes live bands. There is a very small pool, a hot tub, a small playground, and an enclosed dog park. You can see the skyscrapers of downtown N.O. from the second floor balcony around the office and bar area. Since the pool is also on the same level, you get the same view from there. There are some bungalows for rent and a boat launch facility. There is no recycling. We would stay here again, but only for the PPA rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is very safe, yet conveniently close to where ever you want to be when visiting New Orleans. They offer a shuttle in case you don't want to drive. Upon our arrival they were very friendly, we had an assistant show us to our site and direct us in to our spot. The problem is the lack of shade and it is very dusty and there is no pavement and only patches of grass. After being there for 5 days the interior and exterior of our RV and vehicle where covered with dust. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was clean. We stayed in a premium site on the water which was good, but not enough room to let your awning out. Their was supposed to be Wi-Fi, but it never worked. When we called about it, all they said is that it should work, but never checked back to see if we got it to work. The premium sites are not worth the extra money, the interior sites are more suitable for relaxing with more room, If I went back to New Orleans, this park would not be my first choice, but would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great place. There is a restaurant where the owners cook the best BBQ we've had in a long time. The pool is just beautiful and one of the camp workers was there and gave us a lot of information about where to go and how to get there. The grounds are gorgeous and so beautifully landscaped. Everything worked great and we didn't have any trouble at all. It's located in a very different location, but everything you need is within just a few miles of the camp. Grocery, gas, restaurants, shopping, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for a back in on the inlet off of the main canal. Very nice campground, well maintained, clean, but office staff could have been a bit more friendly. Nothing bad, but I did feel like I was bothering the desk help. Convenient to the French Quarter & easy access to freeways. This new park looks like reclaimed land in a mostly industrial zone and they have done a nice job with it. In six minutes from my front door, I was jogging on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. We'd stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate was for a premium water front site with a Good Sam discount. They accept PA for their inside sites. This is a great campground with a marina as well with boat, jet ski rentals available. A nice, relaxed, tropical atmosphere. The shuttle into the French Quarter was convenient and we used it a lot. If you need Wi-Fi, it was not working when we were there. They said they were working on a new system, but a long time resident said the problem has been a long time issue. There is a great BBQ restaurant on site. We camped in a motorhome and will make this our spot whenever we visit New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park for visitors to New Orleans, within a 10 minute drive to the French Quarter and quite safe. Our rate reflects the Passport America rate. We had a water front site with plenty of room for our RV with 4 slides and tow car. Staff was friendly and helpful, although when we wanted to extend our stay, they asked us to move to another site (2 over), but no one ever showed up to use the site we vacated. If it weren't for this inconvenience, I would have given them a 10. The only drawback was getting to the site, kind of have to get over the area. But the park was quiet, and we felt very safe. They also have a restaurant on site that was very good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed in one of the premium spots and it was well worth it. Right on the canal. We could watch the big boats going by and see the draw bridges open and close. Our site had a hot tub and cement patio. Had good water and electric. Sites are a little close together on the water. All are either back in or pull in and back out. Will stay again We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campsite staff was very friendly and helpful. Great to be able to get the shuttle (x3) per day into and out of The French Quarter for $5 return. Unfortunately the WiFi was not strong enough and not reliable, very frustrating. The swimming pool is quite small but OK for families. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is on a canal and was rebuilt after Katrina. All the internal roads are dirt and gravel, which makes a lot of dust. Spots are wide and level. Water pressure is low and electricity is stable. There is a bar and cafe on the the grounds and the facilities are nice. The small store has the basics. The surrounding area is very depressed and run down. The park is secure and well maintained. They have a man here who will wash your RV for a fee. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park but can be dusty due to gravel sites. Good restaurant and good amenities. Quite secure which is important in New Orleans. Quiet and convenient to driving into New Orleans. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is located in an abandoned run down industrial waterfront park. The first items covered by park staff were, "This place is safe. The water is good. And we have entertainment 5 nights a week. The Rock Band is loud." Well, they were right about the band. The music was so loud you could not hear the TV inside the motorhome, and the bands played until 11:00pm. Quiet time was 10:00. I went to the office, and they agreed with my assessment and said there was nothing they could do. I asked to be moved away from the bar where the bands were and was told no. No space was available. We stayed an agonizing week, and the park was never full. We will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is PA for waterfront back in. Park is about 7 miles away from the craziness of New Orleans. We were on the marina side, and actually saw a gator in the water, which was cool. Park's outdoor bar and restaurant are fantastic--food, drinks, and view. Would've given the park a 10 if not for the airplane noise from nearby airport (though not frequent), the noise from the adjacent boatyard, and train noise (also not frequent). Spots are gravel and wide and long. Cable worked well and free WiFi, too. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The GPS assured us we were headed in the right direction but the industrial park we were driving through had us a bit unsure. Once we turned into the park, we entered into a beautifully landscaped RV park. The staff was very friendly and we were lead to our site by a staff member in a golf cart; who even offered to help guide us during the parking of our fifth wheel. The camp sites were concrete and level, beautifully landscaped and the hook ups were good. We had dinner in the bar/cafe and thought the food was good and our waitress was wonderful. The weather did not permit us to take advantage of the pool but it appeared to be clean and well taken care of. There is a shuttle available to go to The French Quarter but we found the time schedule too restrictive. We would absolutely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Such a wonderful place. First class operation. Not in the best location but once you get there it feels safe and secure. Park staff efficient and friendly. Excellent BBQ joint with bar. Internet system needs upgrade. For the price of nightly rate it should have been better. Bathrooms around the outside were the best I have seen yet but they could have used a few more as they were always full. Shuttle cost $5; we assumed it was complementary . Outbound only runs at 10 am, 3:30 pm and 4:30 pm. Last shuttle leaves at 8 from New Orleans. A few more shuttles would have been convenient. Still a first class operation will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was rude, not just the front desk. Entire park floods and gets muddy when it rains, which is pretty often in New Orleans! Pool is nice but never went in. Bbq restaurant offers bbq buffet on Sundays 12-6, but the smoker wasn't going in the morning, which means they were serving frozen or leftover bbq: no thanks. The resort offers a shuttle to the Quarter, last ride home at 8. $35-40 cab ride back makes staying here $$$$. Loved the other resort right near the action. This campground is in the ghetto, but it is secure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park close to the French Quarter. People were all friendly and they had a restaurant and bar on site that served great food. Roads were gravel so when the wind blew it was a bit dusty but you could overlook that because of the nice landscaping and your right on the water. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this park. Don't be concerned when getting off the highway and driving through an industrial area. It's located next to a boat marina and the park is gated. The sites are all gravel, which is why it only gets an 8 rating and not 10. The staff is very friendly and will help you into your site. They have a really nice pool, which we did not use. They also have a bar and restaurant which serves really good BBQ. We picked this park for the ease to the Quarter.. They offer a shuttle for $5 per person round trip. If the pick up/drop off times don't work for you, a cab company will take you downtown for $15. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America rate for each night. The WiFi was really bad. We had to pay Verizon so we could use our phone as a hotspot to go online most of the time. My wife met and talked to the owner about this, and he expressed concern and said he would contact the WiFi provider to look into this. We hope he does for future visitors. The grounds are gravel and dirt. There is a lot of dust that kicks up when vehicles go by. Speed limit is 7mph. I found that the staff are the worst speeders in their four wheelers going around. Right opposite the RV Park is a levy all along France Road. Probably a one time thing, but some teenagers threw rocks at another person staying here, as he drove by the levy in a pick-up, probably around 4pm. (The teenagers were on the other side of the levy where people have homes. They broke his windshield.) This park has a shuttle that goes right into the French Quarter as mentioned, for $5 per person. Our last night we listened to a great jazz band in the RV Parks bar/restaurant. Not sure if we would stay here again, but for us the rate was good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on a Saturday and Sunday night. I asked at check in if the park was quiet. I was told that there was no way you could hear the band at night where we would be set up. We went and saw the band, and they were okay. Not too loud. We could hear them in the coach when we got back, but it was not that bad. The second night it was a different band, and they were awful, and I could hear everything in the coach. The park is off a dock area and outside a bad area. I would not want to go here at night on my first visit. I would not stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beware of this place.. It would take too long to list the things you should think about before NOT staying here. First, the false advertising on their web site. You would think you are staying on the lake, not true, the lake is a mile away and the park is on a small canal. Next you wonder what is on the other side of the sea wall on the road down to the park. Well, it is a subdivision of homes and most have bars on the windows and doors. That should make you feel really safe. In six days there we never saw their claimed security; they might have been afraid to come out. The Wi-Fi was down more than up. They give you rules to follow, and they don't do anything about violations. Trucks double parked in the streets. When we left we had less than 4 inch clearance. They say quiet hours start at 10pm, yet the music from their bar covers the park till midnight. They say the back in sites can handle a forty footer, I guess that is right, but with the sites across from you sticking out in the street and the cars and trucks in the street, it took us 25 minutes to get into the space. Their rates are really high, and I think they are hurting for business as it looks like they have made long term deals with workmen, who rev their diesels at 6:30 in the morning and drink and talk loud till late at night. On a positive note, the water pressure was fine. We will stay at another place next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Review of campground: Sunday & Monday, March 3 & 4 -Pontchartrain Landing Campground: This campground is a New Orleans waterfront RV park. We loved it. Sites are close but bearable. Full hookups with cable, Wi-fi, shuttle service to French Quarter ($5.00 round trip), pool, hot tub, boat ramp, fishing, Lighthouse Bar, entertainment nightly, dog run, and restaurant (excellent food). Tours do take off from the park, and there is plenty of informative materials at the main desk. Cost varies, but our $32 was with Passport America. We loved the restaurant and the entertainment at night. There were about 101 sites, and big rigs are welcome! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has the potential to be a great park. However, they need to blacktop the primary gravel roads in the park. There is too much dust and gravel. They have bands on the weekend that play too loud, too late. There is not enough laundry facilities and too few restrooms for this size park. And why the toilets in the main building are so high off the floor I do not understand. Don't get me wrong it is a nice park with well spaced sites and large enough roadways to maneuver. There is reasonably easy access to the freeway and downtown. We will definitely stay here on our next trip, but hope they blacktop by that time. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park located so it's easy to get to attractions in the New Orleans area. They even provide a shuttle to the French Section for $5 return. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However: you will forget all that, when you try to use their pitiful internet. This system would make Tengo systems seem lightning quick. We were told they are looking into improvements. If you use internet and don't have your own, be prepared for a the most frustrating experience of your life. We would stay stay again only if the internet had substantial improvements. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at this place because of the perks. They have a shuttle that takes you to the French Quarter a couple times a day and picks you up until 8pm for only $5 a person. We stayed during Mardi Gras and it cost more for 3 days around that time, but it was very reasonable. The sites were very large, and all had picnic tables. Laundry was clean. Staff at the office was were not very friendly and we didn't want to go and ask for information. Would come back and stay here. Loved the location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff were very welcoming and the check in was very quick. Staff guided us to the site. This is a great location right on the water. Very friendly people from all over the country. We had dinner at the on-site restaurant (BBQ). They had live music which was great. The weather was chilly so we did not use the pool, but it looked great. We wanted to stay here much longer and will go back. They have a shuttle that goes a couple of times a day to the French Quarter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff knowledgeable and friendly. Escort to site, marina view site (#22) easy to back 42' 'RV and with room to park a dually truck. Site fairly level. Hookups work well and are well placed. Satellite friendly, but very good cable with over 25 channels. Excellent Verizon 4G voice and data. Roads and sites gravel, no drainage problems after one night of rain. Small well landscaped area separating sites, grass area behind rig. Very dog friendly with large fenced area and plenty of grassy walking space. Daily trash pick-up at site. Enjoyed well priced Bar B Q dinner in bar, recommend daily movie 'Hurricane on the Bayou'. Shuttle to French Quarter excellent ($5.00 PP RT). Laundry in main office/bar building very clean, laundry near Marina clean, four washers work well, but showing rust. We did not experience any sales or insurance pressure and felt safe at all times during our stay. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pricey but really nice. I was concerned about feeling safe in the New Orleans area, and it was not a problem at all at this park. Nice plantings; excellent and adequate office staff. We enjoyed a movie that they show twice daily. Easy access to the Quarter via Elysian/I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Basically, this is just a big gravel parking lot in an out-of-the-way industrial area. Sites are close together, with no shade. Security appears non-existent, although they do have punch-code operated gates. Most of the time at check-in is spent taking you through the many rules, and then promoting their other businesses. They do have a shuttle available to French Quarter ($5), but little else going for them. Wi-fi is the worst (slowest) we have encountered in the last thirty nights of traveling in our RV. Faster to mail a letter and wait for a reply. Would not stay here again - there are better options available in the New Orleans area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We give this place an "A for effort", but we wouldn't stay here again. Pros: Well maintained sites; nice little bar/restaurant; decent band 4 nights a week; shuttle round trip to the French Quarter for only $5. That's about it for pros. This place is WAY overpriced. The whole campground is a lake of mushy mud. It is in an industrial area that is mostly abandoned and full of rusty, empty warehouses. Yes, there are "waterfront" sites, some of which face said warehouses, but many that BACK to the water leaving you a view of the rigs parked in front of you. The place is gated, but I never saw the gate closed. The Winn Dixie (closest grocery) is in the ghetto and is outrageously priced (over $6 for a gallon of milk & $4 for a loaf of CHEAP bread). There is just nothing about the place that would justify a repeat trip. There are better choices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very well organized and serviced RV park; facilities are very nice. The price reflect Sugar Bowl and NYE in New Orleans. The down side is it is away from the city and it would cost $20 in a cab to get anywhere. Would stay again as it was clean, staff friendly, great amenities and quite We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great park. The employees were always on duty. The sites (waterfront site #17) are clean and landscaped. The sports bar had live bands during the weekend. The menu at the restaurant was limited to BBQ. There is some industrial noise, but this is New Orleans. Shuttle was $5 RT to the quarters. After 3rd time shuttle was free. There is also a dog park. Only downside was the park road turned to concrete gumbo mud during the rains. Our rate was based on Passport America membership. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was scared. We entered through an industrial area then shipyards. What a pleasant surprise once we hit the gates for this RV Park. Immaculate, nice staff, beautiful waterfront site. Restaurant and bar on site. Pool is awesome and the Jacuzzi is huge. Can't say enough good things about this place. It was a $20 cab ride to the French Quarter where we hit restaurants and the casino. I'd stop here on the way back but have to stay in Baton Rouge for a meeting instead. This was a great stay! Don't let the drive in steer you away from this park. It's New Orleans. Enough said. Safe and secure here though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a hidden gem in the middle of a semi industrial area. First impressions when we were driving into it were 'oh no way!' but once we got in through the gated complex our fears were allayed! The park is right on the waterfront and has a restaurant and a bar on site, a great place to meet fellow travelers. The sites are full hook up, quite, and level. Staff was so welcoming, showed us to our site and helped us back in. That was just the start. They also came by every morning and picked up our rubbish and even filled our propane bottle for us. Thank you mate! The shuttle bus takes you into the heart of the French Quarter and picks you up right where he dropped you off! The free hurricane Katrina movie is a must, enlightened us on why New Orleans flooded so badly. It was a great stay, thank you to all the staff for making our stay in New Orleans so memorable! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this park. The best part is the shuttle back and forth from the French Quarter ($10 round trip). They have a bar and a restaurant on site. We used our Passport America and stayed for $33 otherwise it would have been $53 a night. The downfall is the dirt roads but the grounds are nice and neat and clean. The staff is nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is PA rate. We originally were booked for 2 nights but enjoyed it and stayed another day as an extended stop on our way home from Texas. Nice facility, plenty of spacious pull through sites, easy full hookups with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Staff very friendly and answered all our questions about the area, and escorted us to site, then came back by later to ensure all was OK. All roads and sites are gravel with nice plants and foliage to provide some privacy between sites. There is a cafe/bar at the park with live music on weekends, and big screen TVs for watching ball games. The park is on a major waterway near the south side of Lake Ponchartrain. It is expanding and not yet to full capacity. The picture on their website is an artist rendering, not a real picture, but they are getting there. They have houseboats and cabins for rent, a marina with boat launch. Right across the canal is a bigger marina and a yacht yard. It is about a 15-20 minute drive to the French Quarter, and they also have a shuttle that is only $5. It is convenient to many very good restaurants in the Metairie area close by, and in New Orleans. We look forward to returning to this RV park next time we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hook ups are fine, cable works, sites are level. Generally quiet, but there is an airport nearby. Staff are friendly. The shuttle is a good deal and you can get $3 per person discount on tours they book for you. However, it is overpriced. The security gate is seldom closed. Wi-Fi is brutal, bring your own. Back in sites are not overly long. They promote "cancellation insurance", the only park we have experienced doing this. For that reason alone I would not recommend reserving a site. Just show up. We probably would stay here again as the pickings are slim and this is one of the cheaper ones. The rate cited is with Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best park in New Orleans, but that doesn't say much since there's very few to chose from. Very dusty and dirty, but secure and well lit. We paid extra to have a canal site and it was roomy and and laid out well. Gravel, with a small grass area near the water. Shared hookups, picnic tables, and nice landscaping at each site. Very nice marina and dock area, as well as a boat launch. Playground for the kids and a very uniquely designed above ground pool with a waterfall. Large puddles (small lakes!) formed in the roadways after a rainstorm which made walking difficult through the park at times. Young office staff are polite, but lack knowledge of the area, attractions, and services. Park has a shuttle ($5 per person) that will take you to French Quarter 3 times daily and pick up as well. Driver is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Park is still in the process of development and introduced a BBQ menu while we were there. No one to wait tables, food was cold but tasted good. With improvements, hopefully the kitchen should soon be able to produce better quality. We felt the park was overpriced, but due to the limited choices in the area, they seem to have the corner on the market. Would stay here again if ever in New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, friendly park. It is located on the New Orleans industrial canal and is surrounded by yacht associated businesses, not heavy industry. The sites are large and spaced well. There is a shuttle to and from the French Quarter. The park is surrounded by a fence and a gate and we felt very safe. The bar has a limited food menu. A very pleasant park and surroundings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty little park. They are trying very hard to make it a top notch park. Wi-Fi was very slow. The sites are adequate, gravel surrounded by grass. Roads are gravel, but they are working constantly to groom them. This rate is Passport America. Safety was not an issue at all. They road is very rough, but that is not their fault. The location is a bit of a drive to the Quarter, so the shuttle is a good touch. We would probably stay here again if we return to New Orleans, which is unlikely. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at this very clean and well maintained RV park and marina. We opted out of staying near the French Quarter, but found this location to be just right with our plans to head to Slidel upon our departure. The drive to the French Quarter was about 7 miles if you did not use their $5 shuttle. The pool, hot tub, and utilities, including Wi-Fi, were all top notch and in great working order. The bathrooms were sufficiently spacious and sinks provided more than enough counter space for shaving. I would definitely stay here again to take advantage of their facilities and water activities. My only compliant was the roads just outside this campground were rough and need improvement. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is fairly new. It's crushed gravel that is raked out pretty often. They planted a number of trees and palms all around rock outlined gardens. The sites are mostly pretty large. I easily put our 38' camper and pick-up end to end with some space left over. The electric was perfect, the water pressure was good, the cable TV was outstanding, but the Wi-Fi was completely useless. It's located in an industrial area, but the other options in N.O. are either far more expensive or just horrible. Rate reflects Passport America discount. Would stay here again, but we've had our fill of New Orleans. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ponchartrain Landing. Check in was friendly, fast and informative. We were given lots of information about the area, local tours and the shuttle service the park offered. It was pouring rain and the afternoon we arrived so we opted to stay right there and enjoy the bar. The bar was nice, offering food (primarily reheated burgers and pizza) and live entertainment a few times a week. The shuttle service was great, taking tourists to and from the city at 10:00 AM, 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM Never used the bathrooms so I can't comment on the facilities. The sites were a bit tight with zero shade and the small, sharp stones made it hard to walk, even with shoes on. My dogs feet wound up swollen from having to walk on the stones to the dog park at the entrance. Other than that, it was a great stay and we will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mother always told me if you can't say anything nice about something or someone don't say anything at all. The only good thing about this park were the people on either side of us. In the few hours we stayed, we made friends with them and have arranged to meet them in Quartzite in a few months. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with a few small palms. The spaces were small and close together. Utilities were grouped at the mid point of the sites requiring us to pull forward until 5 feet of our 40' coach stuck out into the roadway. And this was specifically the solution from park personnel. The park is located within an industrial area and we heard the whine of machinery running all hours and back up beepers. The place is over priced but admittedly nicer than other parks nearby. The aerial photo their website displays is a less than accurate portrayal of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Likes: Near NOLA, site big enough, office nice, bar on deck with food nice. Dislikes: narrow roads with vehicles parked in road. Tight turns. With 80,000 miles on my RV I do not need an obstacle course and test to get in or out of my sight. They say no parking in road, but they need to enforce it and widen the turns; dodging a gas pipe line and a bath house is not fun. Since on crushed stone/shell I would give it an 9 with the hassle factor decrease I will give it a 6. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is in an industrial area and the water views are not scenic by any means but we felt safe inside the fenced and security gated park. The park staff were all very friendly and check in was a breeze. We did not use the pool or hot tub but it looked very nice and clean. The park is convenient for touring all New Orleans has to offer and a shuttle is available through the park to the French Quarter daily (we did not use this service). The road coming to the park, as posted in other reviews, is very rough but this is not the fault of the park. The sites are decent but close together and ours required about 2 inches of leveling, we did have a breaker pop one day but it did not happen again during our 4 night stay. The park roads and sites are a crushed white rock/gravel and it does track into your rig, we can only imagine what a mess it makes if it rains. Overall it is one of the nicer parks without the high price if you plan on checking out the city of New Orleans, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is probably the nicest friendliest park in the area. There doesn't appear to be much for kids but the park is clean, little curvy roads nice back in sites right on the water fish from behind your rig can't beat that. Quiet and well lit at night. The only problem we had was the Wi-Fi as has been noted in other post is sporadic to non existent but we will be coming back. The area its in is not the best and the road coming in is bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was very helpful and courteous both on the phone and upon arrival. We found the facilities in new order and clean. The cable was so-so, although we found enough channels via antennae. We would stay here again as the location and facility were very stable for our needs. The Park also provided a shuttle into New Orleans - French Quarters for $5.00 round trip per person. This benefit was greatly appreciated and far exceeded any need to drive into the crammed chaos of the French Quarters. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice campground, and without a doubt the best we have stayed in until then. It's apparently on reclaimed ground since Katrina, and they have done a nice job landscaping each site with a divider of palms and foliage and rocks, with nice gravel level sites. The high rate we paid was due to Mardi Gras season, so they feel justified in charging. A shuttle bus leaves for the French Quarter three times a day for $5 per person per day. A nice marina is off one side, giving the place a water feature. Downsides: the cable TV was basically worthless. Most of the channels had heavy snow, and the channels advertised as HBO were not HBO but some were the HBO minor channels, like HBO2 and HBO familly, but not the real HBO. I called to request help after hours for a couple of reasons and each time someone answered and actually helped. So that was great! Including getting the real HBO to appear one night. I tried again a few nights later and it was not HBO again, it had been switched. I know this because I was able to get online with my iphone and check the HBO schedule. Also, for all their bathroom gorgeousness, there are only 2 bath houses for the entire park. The one in the back of the campground, which service at least three dozen campers, have only a one stall bathroom for men and one stall for women, each with a toilet and shower in one room. That means anyone taking a shower monopolizes the room, making it impossible for anyone else to use a toilet unless they walk clear back to the main lodge building. The campground needs more showers/toilets built, or they should have separated them when the building was constructed. The Wi-FI signal is very unreliable. We tried it during different times of the day and it cut in and out, but the last day we were there it didn't even show up on our network connection. But despite these issues, we still enjoyed our stay there and hope that they can work out these kinks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rate of 33 bucks is for passport members. They give that rate for up to 2 weeks of stay. I stayed here last year and this year there are a myriad of improvements. There is a very nice lounge here that has a lot of tables and heaters and affords a great view of the water. The landscaping has been updated and they say they are in the process of drastically expanding the park. They offer a lot of concierge services, tours, 5 buck trips into town, etc. That personal service goes a long way. I remember the same employees from last year and an experienced staff helps you get checked in and out easily. The park is very very safe and is in a gated area. You are only about a 5 minute drive from downtown. I gave them a 10 because I couldnt think of anything I would improve. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park to stay in while visiting New Orleans. Our rate was with Passport America. We had a waterfront back-in (view of a marina) and it was very pleasant. Utilities were good. Road and site were gravel and a little uneven. Laundry room was okay. Pool and hot tub were too cold to use. Some nights they have live entertainment in the bar by the pool. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The best thing about this park is its proximity to the French Quarter and the shuttle available to get you there. The park itself is in a very industrial area on the river so there is no walking/biking available and no access to Lake Pontchartrain. But let's be real...we weren't there to walk, bike, or swim! We were there to experience the French Quarter, and that we did. The shuttle was a wonderful way to get there and back safely, timely and save money and frustration trying to park in the Quarter. The price was PA and we thought it was very generous and reasonable for the area. The shuttle was $5/pp. We took the 10 a.m. (first of the day) and returned on the 8 p.m. (last of the day) but you have the option of cabbing home if it gets late. The park itself is neat, clean but sites are TIGHT. if we had even a foot more of RV or truck we would have been SOL (we have a 36ft fifth wheel and 1 ton truck). The laundry room was clean and functional. There is a large bar atop the main building that we didn't go to but it looked nice. Clearly there were guests enjoying that area as they did keep kind of late (and loud) hours. The pool was very well kept and pretty but not heated. The hot tub was your standard home version that was warm if anything. The staff was very nice, very efficient and helpful at all times. We would definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great oasis close to a devastated city. The staff is friendly, the campground is clean and the sites are adequate. You can catch the shuttle three times a day for $5 return or get a taxi for about $20. The bar serves great pizza and chicken wings ($16 for a loaded medium pizza and 10 wings). Both the swimming pool and hot tub were open in January. They are accommodating a number of trailers filled with male workers and at times, on Sunday, I felt like I was staying in a migrant labor camp. But they really weren't a big problem. Don't be intimidated by the rough looking neighborhood when you leave I-10. It's only a short drive to the gated park and you have to remember that New Orleans is still a devastated city. We considered staying at a French Quarter park but they would only give us the Passport rate for one night, and they insisted on a 50%, non-refundable deposit when there were only a few sites occupied. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed 5 days over New Years and had fun. Nice on site restaurant and bar. Shuttle service to French Quarter; even offered to dog sit our Lhasa for free on new years eve! Level, gravel sites on the ship canal. We would love to visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly check-in. Very nice gated park. Shuttle to the French Quarter $5 with 3 pickup times. Free movie about the wetlands and Katrina daily. Excellent landscaping and clubhouse. Would stay there again. Didn't get a 10 because the hot tub was not working and a couple of tight turns getting out. Rate reflects 50% P.A. discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$35 dollar rate was Passport America rate. Probably would not have stayed here if wouldn't have gotten this rate. It is an excellent Park. They run a shuttle to French Quarters so you don't have to drive there. Very nice landscaping. They have a lounge open daily from 3 to midnight where you can have a cocktail and pizza or wings. Hot tub and Pool! We definitely would stay here again. Very friendly workers also!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park. We stayed here in December 2010 over New Year's and again this November. Our kudos to the owners for the great changes they have made to the park in the past 11 months. It gives you hope for the recovery of New Orleans. They have added palm trees and rock gardens between the sites. They also have a proper little marina with water and electric. They have also built a houseboat that you can rent as well as a couple of cottages. Well Done! It's kind of nice to be surrounded by million-dollar yachts! We used our Passport America which gave us a rate of $33.00 There is still a shuttle service which takes you to the French Quarter for $4/person round trip, 3 times a day. The outdoor (covered) bar/restaurant that serves great pizza is still there and even the same bartender. We'll stay here again - regardless of the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New since Katrina CG. First assigned site was much too small for a 35' fifth wheel and tow vehicle, but we were moved to a larger pull-through site at same price. Staff was friendly and helpful. Shuttle to French Quarter is handy, but only makes 3 round trips a day. Negatives are surrounding neighborhood is run-down industrial with many derelict structures, and the road in is very rough. Park is security fenced and gated, but I would not feel comfortable outside the fence after dark. Sites are gravel as are interior roadways, which are narrow. All said, still probably the best choice near the French Quarter. We will probably stay here in the future because of its easy access via shuttle to Brennan's. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflect Passport America discount. Not the place for a "camping experience" but a great place for visiting "Nawlins". Check in quick, friendly and efficient. Led to site by a very helpful and informative staff member. Easy roads to maneuver and good sized pull through. Shuttle to French Quarter for small fee (less than parking). Secured gate access, nice dog run, bar, pool, and spa on site. Surrounding area run down industrial but everything behind the fence was pleasant. Restrooms and showers clean but not fancy. Would like to see concrete parking pads instead of gravel. Would stay here again when visiting the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New park since the hurricane. Beautiful but cold pool & waterfall. Nice office & entertainment balcony, clean laundry room. Site was right on the water and was large and clean with a beautiful Oleander bush and landscaping at every site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was worth the drive to the French Quarter to stay here where there is space to move around, cookout, fish and enjoy the boats coming & going on the bay. From what we could see, it's the best in the area. We'd recommend it highly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on one of the lots on the water: #17. It was really nice! Was a great area on the lake. Take into consideration you are in the middle of the city! They really try to make it nice and have wonderful tropical plants and has a natural feel. We loved it and it was very very close to the French Quarter. We used their shuttle service which was really nice not to worry about parking and getting around. The campground was really nice and the pool and bar area was wonderful too. I would stay here again or tell friends to stay. Great place! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I don't know if there is a safe location close to New Orleans where you can park your RV. This place tries. It is gated, and the staff was very helpful informing us about places we could go and could not go safely. All of the employees were friendly and helpful. The park was well laid out and we used their laundry facility which was clean. Lots of dirt and crush and run. They did have a nice dog park and some grass areas where you could walk. Numerous campers appeared to be long term. Our site was priced as waterfront, but we were only looking at a service canal behind a marine storage facility. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are easy access and gravel with very little grass anywhere. The water view is of a channel and mostly warehouses many of which appear to be abandoned. The entire area is industrial. Internet was intermittent, Cable was good. Plus side is that it is close to the attractions of NOLA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had a problem with another RV park in the French Quarter, that did not honor our prepaid reservation, called Pontchartrain Landing RV at about 11;30 pm, and they graciously accommodated us with a large spot right on the water, the place was clean, spaces were not cramped together, staff was friendly and helpful. They had a nice bar open on weekends (with great Pizza) and provided free transportation to and from the Jazz & Heritage Festival. We will always come back to this RV park while in New Orleans area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a 10. It is "paved" with crushed white rock that was hard to walk on, messy (white dust all over). There is a view but of a ship yard and old crumbling buildings. Between the sites are piles of mulch with very nice plants, but the rocks and mulch are fighting to see who wins the edges. The result is constant adding either mulch or rock. Couldn't find an appropriate spot to put out a chair. We were in a pull-through. Had we been on the water in a back in site we would have had a bit a level grass. Also, had to take our laundry in town because they didn't have enough machines. This park has a long way to go. Luckily we used Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was a lovely surprise. Very clean. Friendly staff greeted us at our late arrival and showed us where to park. We had a very nice river view site. Nice and quiet and not a far drive into the French Quarter. Clubhouse and pool area was very nice: our kids loved the pool. We stayed here overnight on the way to Destin and would definitely come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here four nights on the Passport America rate. Gravel with some grass. Long sites make it easy for Big Rigs. Convenient to downtown: either by car or the shuttle located in the campground. Nice pool and bar. Located on the river in a not so scenic area but fine for a short stay. We checked out other campgrounds while we were in the area and found Ponchatrain Landing to be the nicest. Will stay here again when we tour NOLA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Scenic city waterfront location, grassy with gravel sites, nice facilities, good staff. Swimming pool and bar. Shuttle to the French Quarter. Great place: highly recommended. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a good experience at this CG. Wi-Fi was not working so used my data pass card. Cable was good. Friendly staff. Level gravel sites. We were on the water and yes it is a canal but still nice to sit next to. About 10 minutes from downtown via I-10. Sites were not on top of each other at least where we were. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately, New Orleans does not have much choice in CGs. Pontchartrain Landings is supposedly a new resort, but it shows much older. Is is all dirt with some gravel. We are expecting heavy thunderstorms tonight and expect a lot of mud tomorrow. Therefore it is VERY dusty. The sites are not in strict rows which is a plus since they promote privacy. The sites advertised as waterfront, look over industrial canals with heavy industry just across the water. They have a nice bar open several days per week. The pool is very nice. The staff is friendly. Wi-fi is weak. We did not use the cable TV. Electric and water are strong. The reason I rate this CG low is that it is not worth what they charge. And it is VERY dusty. We would stay here again, but only if we couldn't find something else near New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
With the PA discount this RV park is a good value. We found the "amenities" to be less than good. The cable TV was noisy so we used our antenna which was excellent. The WIFI did not reach our site even though we were within 10 rigs of the office. The shuttle service into the French Quarter does not run frequently and we had to take a $30 taxi ride back to the park. The park tended to be a bit noisy with workers leaving in the morning and revelers returning very late at night. The later probably goes with the New Orleans "ambiance". Having said all that, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Can't say enough about the great staff at this park. Very helpful and friendly. Easy drive into the French Quarter. Felt very safe. Our stay was only 2.5 days, so didn't have a chance to use any of the amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved our stay there! I can't wait to go back! The staff there are incredible, very informative and helpful with everything we needed. The Northern couple that manage the place have captured southern hospitality at its best! The shuttle bus was perfect as we weren't familiar with New Orleans. The campground was very close to all the attractions and yet felt safe to bring the whole family. The bar/pool area had an amazing view which made it a very relaxing area to sit at night. I hope that after people read this they will check it out for themselves. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park started off great and was a big disappointment at the end. When we checked in we said we might like to stay 4 nights and the office personnel said they would charge us for 3 and hold the 4th day. They did not give us any time line to make this choice. Upon calling to add the 4th night we were told we would have to move as they had rented it out WITHOUT calling us or making any form of contact. The person checking us in was friendly and so helpful. They offer a shuttle to New Orleans and that is nice. The gate is closed at 6:00 p.m. and we liked that. However due to their renting out our space we have scored them low. I am not sure we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located in industrial area but seemed very safe and secure. Pretty quiet and well run. About 5 miles from French Quarter but they run a shuttle 3 times a day for $5. All amenities worked fine. Nice dog area at entrance to park. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Probably the best RV park in the New Orleans area, did not check out the state parks in the area. Very informative and helpful staff. Great shuttle into the french quarter. We had a great time and would stay here again. Great cell/data service, Verizon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Newest campground in New Orleans 6001 France Road. Waterfront on Lake Pontchartrain in gated park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Don't be alarmed as you pull into area. Ship building area. Hot tub, Sun heated pool, fenced pet area, boat ramp, fishing, pool tables, pub service Thurs to Sun, shuttle service to French Quarter $5/person each way, ask about shuttle times, taxi approx. $19 one way. The interstate coming into New Orleans from the east is very bumpy and your cupboard items may shift. Currently have daytime noise in area due to work on a bridge across the lake. Showers were unpredictable with hot water, our only minor complaint. We stayed in a Premium back-in waterfront site with truck/camper with slides and cargo trailer(40'total) and had lots of room. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
The park has gravel roads and is very dusty if it is dry. Some of the camp sites are a bit narrow. We used the shuttle service to get down town and liked that very much. Wish they offered a few more trips. We would have liked to go down town in the early afternoon one day and we had to take a cab back one evening. There is some heavy construction on a levee near the park and we were kept awake by the noise of a pile driver all night long, one night while we were there. Not the park's fault but an annoyance just the same. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great staff with good start on some of the infrastructure. Clean grounds with mix of long term people. Only one restroom for men, one for women and men was "out or order" 2 of my 3 days there. They were working on their Wi-Fi but it was not performing 2 of the 3 days. Cable very "snowy" on local channels. Noise at night from work on near bye levy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid 31 per night because we are Passport members. Regular rate was stated to be 51. I do not know if this was before or after taxes. The park is conveniently located about 5 miles from New Orleans French Quarter. They offer daily shuttles for 5 bucks a person. In my rating I am considering price in the rating: I mean it is not fair to compare a 31 dollar a night park to a 70 dollar a night park. For what I paid it is a nice, safe, convenient park. I feel like the park is ultra safe. The park is in an industrial area and not a residential area. The park is also fenced. This makes the park very secluded. There is a very nice outside bar that looks like it would be fun, but it was windy and cold when I was here and not many people were using the bar. The park was gravel and I know that bothers some people because you end up with dust and dirt is easier to track into your coach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our second stay at this park. It is one of the newer parks in the New Orleans area and is gated. Had a river front site, very clean, sites well maintained and you are guided to your site. There is a shuttle service to downtown available at a minimum charge. Has friendly, helpful staff, good gravel level sites and roads, and is 5-10 minutes from downtown. Will stay here again on our next trip to New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is clean and well kept with all gravel roads and sites. The sites were of average size and there was landscaping between sites to give a sense of space and privacy. We were a bit wary on the drive in as the park is located in and industrial dock area. However, the park is safe and clean. The shuttle to the French Quarter provided a safe and worry free day of site seeing. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Maybe our expectations were set low by some of the other reviewer's concerns about the neighborhood, but I really didn't mind being surrounded by million-dollar yachts! The rate varies by season and by day, and is a little high. There is a shuttle service to take you to the French Quarter for $4/person round trip. Had a really funny "temp" driver whose real job was NOPD undercover cop at night in the French Quarter. Great stories! Perhaps even scary stories. There is an outdoor (covered) bar/restaurant that serves great pizza. If we are ever back this way, we'll stay here again - regardless of the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park, they offer shuttle service into the French Quarter for $4.00 Round trip a person. The staff were very friendly and offered help when needed. We stayed there for 3 weeks. Beware though their prices change during special events and they book up fast for the Holidays. They do have a bar on sight and their menu offers pizza and wings delivered right to your door. We will be back We camped here in a Motorhome.
I want to settle some things for your readers. There have been quite a few negative posters on this site. What their problem is I don't know, but something is wrong. We are full-time rv'er and have staying at 100's of places, this will be among our favorites. Several have mentioned the size of the sites. We saw a few that were on the small size but the management does their best to fill them last. Our site is just fine. Lots of hibiscus and oleander. And yes, you can definitely see the water. There is a common area at the very end of the park. The pool and the pizza were amazing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First the good. It is very convenient to the city and fairly quiet. I disagree with a previous reviewer about the security concerns. There are million dollar yachts close by with no apparent risks. Now the not so good. This place has cut and sliced the sites so precisely that there is no way to enjoy the little space given to each rig. It lacks appeal. You are given a spot designed to maximize the owner's profit. If you are not on a waterfront spot, forget about getting a glimpse of the water because there is no common area where you can enjoy it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First trip to New Orleans, and this park. Based on other reviews, we knew that the park was not located in a "typical" RV park area, so we were not surprised by the industrial surroundings. The park was very quiet on the canal with fishing opportunities. All the sites are gravel and ours was not level. Park staff was friendly and the shuttle driver was very informative about the areas to see and those to avoid. I think the park is very secure. We used our AAA discount without any problems We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don’t be fooled by this park’s website. The industrial location in the Harbor area does little for one’s sense of security although there is on site security and after hours security gates. The layout of their 105 sites makes the most use of their real-estate with minimal utility for RVs. The office staff is clearly not knowledgeable of big rig maneuverability nor site capabilities – trying to assure us that a 40 ft MH with 20 ft trailer and an additional vehicle would fit in a 20 x 40 ft pull through which required a 120 degree tight turn to access. Wi-Fi was marginal at best. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is located in a rundown warehouse section of New Orleans, but it is walled and gated at night so seemed safe. Nice park with decent sized pull-through and back-in sites with a good number along the water. The park offers a shuttle to the French Quarter a few times a day for $3 a person, round trip. Sadly, the last return is at 8:00 in the evening. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very interesting RV park. Its located along a very industrial shipping area. Our site backed up to the water and we had a view of a canal and boat dry storage, which was actually nice and peaceful. Plus it was enjoyable looking at the beautiful boats. It was very clean and secure, gates lock at 6pm. The landscaping between sites is lovely. Everyone we met from our fellow RVers to the staff was friendly. It's very close to downtown New Orleans, about 6 miles. They offer a shuttle but we chose to drive our own car. We would recommend this to anyone, it's different, but different can be good! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was friendly and helpful. We asked to be parked by the water and they were able to accommodate us with our request. The site was a bit tight as we have 4 slides and tow a full size pick up. We had to manipulate the motorhome to get the truck to fit. The on site bar was a nice gathering spot and they serve pizza and hot wings. We would stay here again. The roads are gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has a good layout, provide transportation to the French Quarter at no charge, Staff was friendly, however I will not stay there again, have a problem when they list themselves with Passport America and Good Sam Club but refuse to give any discounts whatsoever, that's just my standard policy. When I called several weeks in advance I was told they participated with both firms in giving discounts so I planned my trip to include them but once there they refused to give any discounts, stayed four nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent choice of parks to visit New Orleans. Park is off the "beaten" path in East New Orleans but don't let the industrial area scare you away. The park staff is extremely nice and helpful offering the only bar / lounge of any RV park we have stayed at. The park also offers a daily free shuttle (please tip the drivers) directly to the French Quarter. Last shuttle runs at 8pm so if you're going to be late seeing the sites, cab fare is less than $20 to get you back to the park. The co-owner is on-site daily. We'll definitely stay here again while in New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stay while visiting NOLA. There is a shuttle that runs guests back and forth to NOLA, and the shuttle stop is in a great downtown location. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Our RV spot faced the river, so the fishing was right out our front door. Each RV park had a fire pit ring, and the RV resort has a bar on site. This is where we met other guests staying at the campground for drinks and movie watching. It was a wonderful experience staying at this campground. Not only would we stay here, it would be a great place to work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice place, although a little expensive. Great distance to Bourbon Street. Sits on quiet canal. Kids loved the pool. They have a bar and bar food. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with very friendly staff. The sites are level and large. Water front is a canal off of Lake Ponchatrain. Shuttle is nice but we chose to drive as shuttle times did not match our schedule. Short drive to French Quarter or the Super Dome: about 10-15 minutes. WiFi worked fine, pool was nice and the onsite bar and restaurant was a nice bonus. Only bad side: the access road is rough and is through an industrial area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff, they provide an escort to your site and he makes sure you understand the hook ups they have, and points out locations for walking your pet. They have a large grassy area in the middle of the park and a fair good sized fenced area to let your dog off leash. There is a free shuttle that takes you to the French Quarter so you don't have to hassle traffic and parking. There is a bar area that opens about 5pm that also serves pizza and wings, or you can order them and they will deliver the food to your RV. The park is gravel with landscaping between sites, there is ample room between sites. The cable TV is adequate with 4 HBO stations. The WiFi is the best I've ever experienced. We'll stay here again if we're stopping in New Orleans with the RV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent a week here and really loved it. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I broke my foot just before arriving here so had mobility issues. One of the staff members delivered ice to our camper and then delivered a wheelchair to me that I'd rented from a local service. When my fridge went out, the front office recommended a repairman who came out promptly and dealt with me fairly. The pool is sparkling, and you don't have to have a site right on the canal to have a view of the water. Laundromat is clean and in working order, and my two dogs loved the dog park. We haven't availed ourselves of the on-site pizza and wing delivery or the bar, but they seem to be pretty popular. Wi-Fi is pretty weak, and we were only about halfway through the park from the office. We didn't use the shuttle, either, but saw plenty of people who did. It's an appealing feature of the park for those who want to visit the French Quarter. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Entrance to park from the freeway will have you wondering if you selected a decent campground. Once you get into the gates its probably one of the nicest parks in the French Quarter area, that is not a campground on a parking lot. The staff was excellent from check-in to the driver. They had a shuttle that went into the French Quarter three times a day. I didn't care for the shuttle times, but we were able to convince the shuttle driver to take us down there on his off time for a small fee (excellent). The last shuttle pick up is 7pm which should be later but who can complain if its free. We had a river view which was in the canal of a industrial area. Saw some dolphins at sunset. Camp sites flood when there is lots of rain. It was a little pricey, but I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance road to the park might make you think twice but once you get back to the Park you will find it is a good location, friendly and safe. The area is under redevelopment so this will be improving. You can actually see the skyline of New Orleans from the upper deck around the office. Pool, pavilion, and bar are very nice. My wife after retreated to the A/C in the camper due to the heat and commented she wished there was an air conditioned work out room. The very next morning I saw work being done on a new work out room under the office. The park is also pet friendly with a dog run and clean up bags in the park. The best surprise was a free shuttle running to the French Qtr's daily. The Quarters is only 6 miles away. This will be our destination when we want to visit New Orleans. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground. I was a little worried when we pulled off I-10, but I sure was glad I kept going! Pulled though the gate and vacation started. Reservations were correct, and the staff guided me to the site and helped me back in. In no time we were at the "LIGHTHOUSE BAR" having a Margarita. We spent a few days in the quarter. The park has a free shuttle back and forth to the quarter: fantastic no parking hassles and all the bar hoping we could handle. Some guests were here for the fishing. The park has a boat ramp and storage on site. The wireless Internet was easy to connect to and pretty fast. The only thing that keeps me from giving this park a 10 is the interior roads needed a little maintenance. I noticed the staff working on them when we pulled out. The sites were level and the park was quiet. I would camp here again anytime. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice facilities including on site tavern, with Pizza and wings which they will deliver to your coach. Free shuttle service to and back from the French Quarter is a real plus. During Jazz Fest, there is also free drop off and pick up at the event. Staff is very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a very pleasant RV park. It is more like a fish camp that one finds along the Mississippi river. If you pay extra for a waterfront site it comes with people walking through and sitting on your site fishing. And if they are successful they will clean their fish on the spot. Sites are fairly level gravel with full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The road to this park made us wonder where we were going, but after reading other reviews we pressed on and boy are we glad we did. Very nice gated facility with their own bar onsite. We took the free shuttle to the French Quarter several times and loved the ease of it. Pool area was gorgeous and they have a dog run for the dogs to play which was important to us. We reserved for 2 days and stayed 10! What a great city and lovely park!!! We'll be back for sure!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had a very good experience of camping there while seeing New Orleans. It was very comfortable and close enough to the French Quarter to easily drive to it. We did not use the shuttle, but I think it would be good for most. We have prior N O residences, so we toured with them driving. Dog park area was big enough for the 2 big dogs we have to stretch their legs. Staff was very helpful. Wi-Fi worked and cable was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We booked this CG based on price and the fact they offer a free shuttle service to and from the French Quarter 3 times daily. We checked out the one right in the FQ but they wanted $69 a night, no discounts, and it was heavily fenced with razor wire and armed guards at night. We were told by the management of Ponchartrain landing that they often get people leaving there and coming here - after they stay one night in the FQ and hear the 5-10 gun shots a night. This park seemed in an odd place, sort of industrial boat yards. But after staying there it is quiet, friendly staff, great showers, clean bathrooms, and more. We used the shuttle 2 or 3 times and it was very handy - a taxi back was only $20 if you stay out past the last one back. We will stay here again. There is a pool, hot tub, outdoor bar and movies outdoors. There is no indoor clubhouse, but that's about all that's missing. They just finished their boat launch too so you can hit the lake right from within the park now. Thanks to manager for a great stay. Rate reflects Passport America discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground find in New Orleans, fairly new and they are in the process of adding a small boating facility. Punctual shuttle service to the French Quarter three times daily (cabs are about $20 each way and daily parking is also about $20/day). Fenced dog walk, hot tub, friendly helpful people and they have an on-site bar that serves good pizza. Both the drinks and the pizza are moderately priced. Safe, clean, quite at night and has large pull throughs. This is a great destination campground for visiting a tourist attraction like New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been traveling the US for 3 months now and this is our favorite park so far. They offer a free shuttle service to the French Quarter: very handy. This is the first and only place that has a bar and a very friendly manager/bartender. They also do pizza and wings at the bar or delivered directly to your RV. The pizza is really good. It was too cold to use the pool but the jacuzzi is really nice and always 104 degrees F. We highly recommend this RV park: overall the best. The waterfront sites are more expensive but really large. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week at Mardi Gras. Great staff; very helpful and friendly. There is a shuttle bus 3 times a day to French Quarter. Yes, the last road to the camp was rough, but so are most of the roads in New Orleans. The area might look bad, but we had no problems. Once again it is an urban city. Sites were gravel but nice. Rain can be a problem for some, but it goes away. Where in New Orleans can you stay a week for $50 night during Mardi Gras? We would stay here anytime. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here 3 days. Staff was very nice. Rate reflects Passport America discount. Called and thought I reserved a canal site, however, was given a pull through with no view. Updates are in process. All roads and sites are gravel. For the price charged without a discount, I would expect paved roads and cement pads. Propane is available which is a plus. There is a beautiful pool and a nice bar area. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful and very safe, secure, and gated RV park. The park is close to the French Quarter. Shuttle service is available for guest convenience. The outstanding, attentive, caring, and knowledgeable staff make staying here a real joy. We heartily recommend Pontchartrain RV Park and will stay here again and again. Thanks to all the staff for being such good friends to us during our stay. We love you guys! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second time coming to this park and we were surprised by the amount of progress this park has made since our last stay. They now have a bar located on the pavilion deck overlooking the canal, and soon it will be accessible by boat. We were sad to see all the brown landscaping, but it was explained to us it was a result of temps in the teens 3 weeks prior to our stay. We came for Mardi Gras and love the free shuttle to the Quarter. We chose this park the first time based off reviews on this site and returned because this park went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. This park is in an industrial area, but we found the area serves as a buffer to the city so it was very secure. The last post about this park talks about an "unruly" guest. In all fairness to the park it should be known the person in question wasn't unruly at all; however, he was drunk and depressed, and the park staff dealt with the situation swiftly and professionally. I have stayed both here and the resort downtown and both are nice parks but in the future will only stay here because of its location and very quiet nights. Mardi Gras was a great time, and we look forward to our next trip to NOLA. 10+++ We camped here in a Motorhome.
The website must have been for a different park. This in in an old industrial area, not very secure. Police had to remove some unruly guest. They charged $114 for a waterfront site but you just look across a canal at some abandoned building. We booked 2 nights but left early due to security issues. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Above rate reflects weekly rate, basically the same as Passport America daily rate. The only real complaint we would have here are the gravel/mud streets due to heavy rain two days during our week-long stay. It's not quite what we expected from the web site, but tolerable. The free Wi-Fi was very fast and fairly reliable with only rare and brief drop-outs during periods of heavy use. Sites include landscaping between, and each site we saw has a least a small grass area. Management is very management and helpful. There are only a few bathrooms and showers, but they are very well maintained. Park is gated. Very nice free shuttle 3 times daily to and from the French Quarter. When we return to New Orleans, there is no doubt that this is where we will stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First class!!!! The free shuttle to the French Quarter made it well worth the price. We used Passport America for 2 nights and had a site right on the water. Clean, roomy sites, excellent service!!! They even have a bar and pizza. We were in heaven!!!! This was our second visit and we're ready to return - TODAY!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ponchartrain Landing is the place to stay when visiting New Orleans. The rate is about $30 with Passport America. Bathrooms were extremely clean and well cared for. Staff was extremely friendly, and very helpful when it comes to things like finding grocery stores. From Ponchartrain Landing it's about 15 minutes to the French Quarter. The park has two vans (one large, one small) and shuttles campers back and forth at no charge. Be advised the campground is situated in an industrial area, on a canal. The surroundings area is hardly beautiful, but the campground - and sites - are first rate!! Also note there is a pool and hot tub here, though we didn't use them. We will stay here whenever we're in New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The park is located in a mostly abandoned industrial area along a canal near the edge of Lake Pontchartrain. Some would see that as a negative but we found it a nice change of pace from the high energy and "who dat" volume of downtown and the French Quarter. Don’t waste your time looking for a better park in the area. I don’t know what could make it any better. Especially if you compare prices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here using Passport America. Overall the park is great, however, still under construction. Gravel throughout, no concrete pads. Expect a lot of construction throughout New Orleans on your way into the park (plan ahead!). Excellent features in this park - shuttle to the French Quarter 3x per day, fenced dog park, restaurant and bar on site. The area surrounding the park is a warehouse/industrial area. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ditto earlier comments - sparkling clean facilities, friendly staff, upgrading campground. It is obviously an ongoing process, shuttle bus into French Quarter was efficient. Passport America campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here using Passport America's discount. Easy to get in and out. Staff is very friendly. They have a restaurant and bar on site. We didn't use it, but they give you a free drink ticket when you check in. Riverfront, with a decent view. It's not the prettiest park you've ever seen, but it's better than some. It's about 5 miles or 10 minutes from the French Quarter. Good location. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park, nicely landscaped, helpful staff. The pool with waterfall looks over the river. Security is good with a coded gate. The park is 15 minutes from the French Quarter where parking is impossible, but the park provides free shuttle service three times daily and a taxi number for late returning. There is even a park guest who offers dog sitting services. A good choice for a safe and convenient stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was clearly one of the best parks I've visited in Louisiana. Staff was very helpful, beautiful scenery, close to everything we wanted to do in New Orleans. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Pontchartrain Landing in October. Our $29 rate was with Pass Port America discount. Their free shuttle runs 3 times a day to the French Quarter. That, combined with the daily rail pass for New Orleans streetcars, meant that we never had to unhook the towed car from the motor home. The campground appearance is lovely with well-maintained gravel roads, and lush tropical plantings including flowering oleander and hibiscus. The views outside the campground are less than ideal, surrounded by an industrial shipping and warehouse area. The pool area was very nice with outdoor bar serving beer and soda at night (but may have different hours during their busy season). The access road from the highway to the campground is rough pavement, so just take it slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall a very nice experience. The park was clean and well managed. The staff was very helpful. On the way into the park you wonder what your in for but once there it's actually very nicely landscaped. The fishing on the canal is great. The shuttle to the French Quarter ( 3 x day) was a very nice plus. Would like to have stayed a little longer but only allow Passport Sun thru Thur. otherwise would be a bit expensive. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park although I was a little concerned what I'd find as I drove down the industrial harbor area. The staff was very nice. Everything was very clean. There was a nice pool area. Free shuttle 3 times a day. When I had a problem with the cable TV at my site, the manager came and fixed it. Wi-Fi worked well. Price was for Escapees which I thought was very fair for the city and amenities they offered. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for jazz fest weekend and couldn't be happier. Weren't sure about the place on our way there but what a diamond in the rough. Ship traffic to watch, super yachts going by, and the dolphins capped everything off. I couldn't believe this park is in the city because at night you hear nothing!!! The staff was a 10+++ and we would recommend this park every chance we get. What an awesome experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The actual charge for our supersite, as they call it, was $128 per night. The site was right on the industrial canal, not river, and the sites you see across the canal are derelict and shuttered industrial buildings and barges. We could barely get our slideouts out due to the closeness of the site to the adjoining sites, but the worst was that adjoining neighbors were permanent campers and had spread out all over the site including our site. The campground is in an industrial area with a very broken down access road and lots of stored campers and boats. This is not a place that you would want to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I disagree with prior posters in that this park is not scary at all andthey are working to repair the road leading to the park (about 1 mile long) and the park is gated. It is in the harbor area, so some of the buildings on the road leading to the park are warehouses. The park however, is nice ,gravel roads and sites and right on the water. All new landscaping and office building since the storm. The park is a work in progress, but we liked it. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. They do run a free shuttle to the French Quarter 3 times a day. We drove it today ourselves, takes about 15 minutes to get there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location is a little scary. You're down by the river located by old warehouses and Industrial buildings. The front gated is locked at 7PM and you must use a code to open it. There is a free van schedule to the French Quarter is 3 times daily. Cab fare is $20 each way. All day parking at the French Quarter is $20. Sites and internal roads are all gravel. The only grass is by the river sites. They are full hook up sites. The outside pool was open but too dirty and cold to use. They have 3 washers and 4 dryers that work well. $1.50 per load in washer & dryer. Management was very nice and accommodating. They also have a dog run. Overall a interesting campground. Last year we stayed at the KOA West and when it rains there it floods their streets and sites. Here you can watch the boat traffic on and the occasional launching of water craft. We would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great access to the city. The shuttle was invaluable for the casino and French Quarter. WiFi was spotty to non- existent. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Gravel roads dusty (when dry!)and tough to ride a bicycle on. Park was under water with Katrina but the owners have done a good job bringing it back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new and constantly improving park. The staff was FABULOUS. They were more than accommodating and helpful. Came to our site to help us get around New Orleans, give us suggestions of where to go / places to see. Shuttle bus service 3 times a day which saved us driving our car into busy downtown for sightseeing. Only draw back is location. But very safe as gated community. We would highly recommend this park and we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is a work in progress. We were skeptical about staying in this part of town, but the park is well secured and the staff is very friendly. Not much grass, if you have a dog, but they do have a nice fenced in area where the dogs can play, unleashed. There is a shuttle to the French Quarter, but we chose to drive. Had no problems finding a parking space. Shuttle is free, but only runs at designated times. Having a dog, we preferred to come and go as we pleased. We had signed up for one night, but renewed for 2 more nights. Restrooms are large and very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park management went above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable. We had a waterfront pull in that looked out to a large ship not necessarily beautiful but it was definitely waterfront. We stayed here in a travel trailer and we did so because they had shuttle to the French Quarter (Mardi Gras) it was a very nice plus. Didn't understand why after midnight they would shut down the park lights making it difficult to see!?? It was gated but it needed to be it was in an industrial area away from anything in a scary part of town. We would probably stay here again but only for Mardi Gras. The showers/bathrooms were clean well maintained. Didn't use the laundry but saw a few campers utilizing the facility. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is definitely one of the better RV parks in the New Orleans area. Be sure to request a water site. The park provides free shuttle to downtown, but if you stay at home it's fun watching yachts go by. They've suffered a bit from recent hurricanes, but working to keep the park restored. I'd definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This resort is truly a pleasant surprise. From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the friendly courteous staff. Your stay begins with an escort to your site and assistance with backing in if necessary. So many little extras like trash pick up each day made our time here a pleasure. The free, three times daily, shuttle service to the French Quarter is a real time and money saver. The cost of parking in the French Quarter is around $20 to $25 a day and at times not easy to find so this free service was great. Sites are very level, well landscaped, and large enough for any sized rig. Hook-ups include 50 amp service, and cable in addition to water and sewer. I found only two minor drawbacks. The city street leading to the resort needs improvement and climbing those stairs to the office/clubhouse, several times a day is not fun for people with knee or leg problems. Overall I would recommend this resort and I will definitely stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for 1 week with a cost of $218 including the taxes. This is a newer park and is now called Pontchutrain Landing. They have a free shuttle to the French Quarter and it is well worth it as parking is $20 a day if you can find it. The negatives are the area(its in an industrial area-a yacht building company and a tough neighborhood to shop) and the pot-holed road to the park. There is noise from the RR track. It is safe and clean and patrolled by the Harbor Police. We would stay there again. The wifi was sporadic but the staff was excellent-a 10+. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 3 nights here. Sites were clean and level.. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The manager is fantastic as is the staff, very friendly and helpful. We used the free shuttle to the French Quarter which ran 3 times a day. The manager even decided to pick up folks on New Years Eve at 1:00 which wasn't on the schedule. The campground has only been in operation for 18 months but they have done a fabulous job of creating a fabulous site. Pets can enjoy lots of walking space and a large fenced play area. Free Wi-Fi and cable were great. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. Passport America discount was good for 1 night. Cost does not reflect this discount. Thanks to the staff for a great stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground was completely rebuilt after the floods and is in very good condition. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Shuttle service to the French Quarter was very much appreciated. Yes, the drive to the campground through the damaged industrial section is not pretty but once in the campground it is very safe and secure. The gates are locked at night. We never had any concerns while here. We will definitely be coming back here next year and stay on the waterfront again. Their new name is Pontchartrain Landing. Check out their website, they have big plans for the campground. We paid Passport rates. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was recommended by a neighbor at another park. I was very disappointed, mostly gravel, dusty , almost no grass for pets, Trash throughout area. Maybe we got put in a bad spot but I was glad to leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here 12 nights, so rate was discounted. Work-camper staff was among the most friendly and helpful we have encountered anywhere. Gated security. Very clean campground (although one new section is under construction which creates a little understandable, acceptable mess). Campsites are further apart than most and wide enough to park tow vehicle beside RV. Free shuttle to French Quarter in morning and evening, about a 15-minute drive. Would very definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nightly rate was for Mardi Gras. We stayed here for 4 nights. They are also expanding about 30 more sites. This is a good park for exploring downtown New Orleans. It is a very safe park despite the drive in to get there. The shuttle is very convenient to the French Quarter. Cab rides if you miss the shuttle should be ~$15 (Be aware during special events. Make sure the cab driver turns on the meter). We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New, one year old and built after Katrina. Spacious, level sites: adding another 60 sites to accommodate growth. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and can't do enough for you. About 5 miles from the French Quarter with easy access. Located along the west side of the Industrial Canal in an area of heavy industry, which poses no negative concerns. Very quiet. I would select it over the RV park downtown due to a safe and more secure feeling. No street people around here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed the month of Feb and enjoyed being close to downtown and near the Mardi Gras parade routes. The campground was quiet and secure which was important to us. Being new motor home owners we appreciated CJ, the manager,helping us set up and answering our numerous questions during our first outing in a campground. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
