CG's in New Orleans

I'm looking for idea's for a nice campground in New Orleans. We'd like to be fairly close to the city. Looked at Jude Travel Park online but that really doesn't tell me much. But that is to give you an idea of the area we'd like to stay.

Last year we spent several days at The French Quarter RV Resort. Very nice and walking distance to the French Quarter. Not cheap but very nice and I believe it's Passport America.

Rick - Thanks. I looked at that one too. But at nearly 500/week (we plan on being there for 3 weeks) it would be a bit pricey.

A couple of years ago we stayed at the French Quarter RV Park. It is a real nice park, super clean and well within walking distance to the French Quarter, but--bring your ear plugs--because it is RIGHT next to I-10. Much traffic noise.

We have stayed a the French Quater RV Park several times and really like it but it is pricy. We had no problem with the noise from I-10 except last January... next to the RV Park is a public park that was being used by a marching band to practice for the big parade... They were there from about the time school was out until just after sundown!!

We have stayed at French 1/4 x 3. Nice place but it IS pricey. Now we are looking for something in a more rural part of the state for a "traditional" Mardi Gras.

If you are not a member of Passport America and were planning on staying at the French Quarter RV Resort it would be a good time to spend the $44 for a PA membership. It would almost pay for itself the first night at 50% off the normal rate.

I looked a the PA site and checkout the campgrounds. According to the listing for the French Quarter RV Park info, the PA discount is only good for 1 night per stay. I guess that one night would pay for the membership, but still a pricey stay.

One night wouldn't work for me either. I looked again and this one: www.pontchartrainlanding.com might work. The Passport Amercia rate of $33 is good for seven nights. They say they have a shuttle to the French Quarter. The website makes them look pretty nice (but don't they all sell themselves nicely on a website?) There are comments on this one in RV park reviews about this park.

Yes they do. I am the CG photographer for the CG we stay at during the summer months. While it really is a nice CG, the photos I took were sent to the WEB Developer and with the help of Photo Shop, the pictures came out even nicer.

Thanks for all of the input. I have time to research so I will do just that.

We are here now. When you get to the main road here it's an industrial type location on a canal ( got a little worried) but the CG is very nice. They have a pool, hot tub, bar and nice landscaping. Very friendly people and a trolley to the quarter. Well worth the $33.

We also stayed at Ponchartrain Landing and it was great! Far away from freeways, bad areas and a great shuttle to the French Quarter. The pool & bar were really nice. Inside roads are gravel, yea, the scenery ain't great but a really good choice and easy access for big rigs.
