Would have liked to get a spot on the lake-that's what we asked for, but I guess they save them for the weekend crowd. That's the only thing that disappointed me. We arrived on Saturday, and stayed 6 days. Got the passport america rate. Nice shuttle to the French quarter at a reasonable price. Parked our travel trailer and only drove one day out to a swamp for an airboat tour. Grocery store nearby was nice. The restaurant food was good and reasonable. We ate there twice. The picture on the website may be what they plan to have, but for now they just have gravel. Can be very dusty, but we still like fresh air over air conditioning. As the others say, it is hard to find, they could use more signage when trying to find France Rd. There was a train blocking the road when we arrived and we wondered if we were in the right spot. It was a great vacation, nice quiet campground, music at the bar, friendly people and they're working to make it bigger and better.

My family & I needed to blow a night before checking in at our site in Destin, FL (Camp Gulf) so decided to check NOLA off our list. This was our first overnight in our very first new 27' TT and everything went smooth as butter, warm butter! Nice wide roads & turns plus very friendly people who didn't rush anything.
This was super easy to get to off the blower and it's in an industrial area so not only was the road big enough for semi traffic it felt very safe as no one or much of anything was around it except a huge shipyard.
We only stayed one night, but honestly I wish we'd have planned to stay longer to take advantage of everything the park had to offer. I'd love to try kayaking in the beautiful calm channel & take advantage of the nice pool and bar area.
It was surprisingly very quite with no road noise at all which I'm guessing is very hard to come by this close to New Orleans.
The only downfall was all gravel roads and gravel pads, but they we're level and it did have beautiful landscaping in between all the sites...even nice low volt landscape lighting at night!

I stayed at this rv park for 2 months. The management and employees are five stars. Everybody treats you like family. It has a bar, restaurant, pool, hot tub, marina, laundry facilities, dog park, and shuttle. There was plenty of room to park our trailers and vehicles. I felt safe and the park was well taken care of. Would not think twice about staying anywhere else but there when I visit NOLA. We parked our 41ft aspire in the over flow lots and had plenty of room to park our vehicle and relax outdoors and enjoy the picnic tables for lunch and dinners.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days while visiting the area. The campground is large but easy to get around in. We had a premium site by the water. We were right across from the bathroom which was very clean. It would have been nice to have a chair in the bathroom and a place to put your shampoo, conditioner, etc in the shower but the shower and bathroom were very large. The campground has a nice pool, which we did not use because of the cool weather. There is also a nice store with very helpful employees. We used the shuttle to and from the French Quarter. The campground also has a very nice little bar which serves very, very good food. There was music both of the nights that we went to the bar. Very friendly staff. Even though this campground has Wi-Fi - we were too far away to get a good signal but we brought the laptop to the bar/pool area and had no problem there. This would definitely be a place we would stay at again.

We had a super premium site facing the water (interpret $$$) which was lovely, peaceful and relaxing. The park has done a good job of plantings in this and most areas which provide a degree of privacy and seclusion in tight quarters. Some sites are actually very tight, however.

We didn't go to the pool area but did on a previous trip, and it was lovely.

We do not like that all interior roads are gravel and dust or gravel and mud. It does not provide good footing for walking.

The access road , France Rd., is in dreadful condition.

I DO NOT LIKE that they charge an "insurance" fee up front which allows the opportunity to cancel vs a cancellation fee for only those who cancel.

We would stay again, however , because it is easy freeway access to the quarter, and a pleasant place, but not if our only choice was to squeeze into the standard slots.

Traveling the south with RV and decided to stay here after some research, not that far from NO with shuttle to and from park. Ground under construction as well as office restaurant etc. location and surroundings are suspect, RV sites are to close to each other, employees are very helpful. Not as good as I expected.
