Headed to 'Nawlins? French Quarter RV park review:

It's about 12 blocks from the river/Cafe Du monde. We walked it in 20 min, crossing Bourbon St in about half that time. The rv park is clean, well maintained and has 24hr security. The only drawback is that the end of the park is almost tucked under the I10 fly over. It's not cheap at $100 a night, but the location makes it worth it.

Here is their website;

I agree-- great place to stay if you are visiting the FQ. The sirens at night on the interstate and around the general area were bothersome, but that's what you get in the city.

We stayed there in early January. We would stay again due to the proximity to the French Quarter. Road noise really didn't bother us. Felt safe. Didn't get a chance to use any of the amenities (pool, spa, exercise room) and while it probably deserves a higher than average rate, it was just a little bit more than the facility as a whole deserves. A little bit of capital reinvestment is warranted IMHO.

We didn't notice anything "dated", but then again we rarely stay in RV parks and prefer State, Fed and County parks. So, compared to them this place was downright "glitzy"

Fyi, there are (7) sites up front that are privately owned and each have their own large screened in gazebo w/patio furniture. I think these are $20 more a night, but might come in handy if you like to hang outside.

That park is priced on supply and demand not value. There is so much more to New Orleans than just the French Quarter. Many of the restaurants in the Quarter are prices for tourists.
Suggestion: There is a drop dead beautiful state park just across Lake Pontchartrain called Fontainebleau.. Less than $30 per night. Nice ride across the lake on The Causeway. Try three nights, Spend the extra $210 having some great meals outside of the Quarter... Like Mandena's on Canal Street... Ride the many street car lines, see the parks and museums, and still plan a day or two for the Quarter. You can get a pass on RTA with unlimited on and off. You have to be very careful about the neighborhood where that RV park is located.

Kiwi you forgot the Abita Brewery tour on the north shore

I would have loved to stay on the north shore. I'm from NOLA, parents moved north of Covington when I was at SLU. I have a sister that lives off Magazine street, so when we go I like to be close. We carry a Suzuki 400 scooter on the back and use it for most transportation. I agree, the FQ is not my fav place, but it is unique. When walking, just like in any other metro area, pay attention to your surroundings, stick to daylight hours. If you are going to go out after dark, take a cab or Uber. An Uber 12 blocks will cost about $5.

Btw, on the home we stopped in N Picayune and grabbed 12lbs of boiled mudbugs from a market....they were plump and almost spiced enough for us
