Any suggestions????

My Air Force son is stationed in Biloxi. We stayed at a great park, Majestic Oaks, there last winter. NOLA, as it is called locally, was an easy drive from there. Of the parks in the area that we checked, it was by far the best. Will share with you that the Riverboat tour wasn't all that impressive. The swamp tour out of Slidell was . . . AWESOME!

We have just stayed for two full days in the city. The park we were at is Pontchartrain Landings on the north side just off the lake. Very nice. This is the second time we have been there and the park has been up graded. If you have a PassPort membership the nightly charge is reasonable. $40.00 plus. Full hook ups. Very good security. Easy travel down into the French Quarter. They have shuttle buses twice a day. Strongly recommend.
Regards,
JimB

French Quarter Rv Park, pricey but worth the price. 69--79.00. Much more if the Saints are in town. Short walk to French Quarter, French Market, St. Louis Cathedral and Café Dumond. Don't leave regardless of where you stay without trying dinner at "Irene's". Wonderful food and you can smell it from 3 blocks. Italian Cusine.

Another vote for FQRV.... easy walk to the sights in the quarter. Noisy due to the adjacent interstate, but great location if you want to be in the quarter

Another vote for Pontchartrain Landing - A Secure New Orleans Waterfront RV Park and Campground

We stayed 4 days on our Passport America. The shuttle takes you downtown 3 times a day.

We've stayed at the French Quarter RV Park four times now. Closest you can get to downtown.

I think they're still Passport America so you can get one night discounted.

There are also 2 Louisiana State Parks 30-35 miles north of NO, (across the Lake Pontchartrain bridge):
Fountainebleau
and Fairview Riverside.
Nice parks!

If you go to either, say "HI" to Le Roy and Jesse, from MN, (hosts at Fountainebleau), and/or Dave and Sandy, from PA, (hosts at Fairview).
Nice people!
