On way from FL to TX along I-10 we want to stop in New Orleans 2/7-8 AFTER Mardi Gras is over. Any comments on Mardi Gras RV Park, Jude Travel Park, Riverboat Travel Park? French Quarter is a little pricey for us so anyone whose camped at any of the above please give us your comments, thanks, JG.

We spent 3 nights in French Quarter RV in early Nov, on our way home from Fla. It is one of the best in city rv parks we have tried. Owners are wonderful, even drove us to the quarter one evening, level sites completely enclosed in gated brick fence. We didn't check out any of the others, since we wanted to be close to the quarters. You might want to do some research on any park since there are some areas of NO that we would not consider safe. Be sure and eat at Deannie's for great seafood and check out the wonderful music clubs.

After doing some research, I agree that FQRV is probably the best place to stay. PA gets one of the nights at 50% off, so we will stay here for our 2 night stop. It seems real close to I-10. How was noise level? Is there any grass for dog? Looks like all concrete and pavers. John

It is very close to I-10, in fact sites on the end are almost under it, but surprisingly the noise was not too bad. You do hear the roar if you are outside and an ocassional siren, but since we had the a/c going, it didn't bother us. There is grassy areas between each site and saw lots of doggies out walking their owners during our stay

The 3 parks you mentioned on Chef Hwy. are a big NoNo. Terrible neighborhood, junkies, hookers, gangs, etc. That's just a part of town you do no more than pass thru on the interstate.
FQRV Resort is nice, secure and pricey but nothing is more convenient. Our favorite is Bayou Segnette SP on the Westbank, about 20min. from downtown. Still a nice park since Katrina even without a lot of the trees. Paved roads, sites, 50A and water. Dump station. Hard to beat the price, $8 or $9 with Golden Passport. If you choose Bayou Segnette, Do Not cross the H.P. Long Bridge, US90, very narrow lanes, built in the 30s. Either use Business 90 from the East/Downtown or 90 from the West/Boutee. Wherever you decide make reservations now, lots of snowbirds that time of year.

From an old "Metry" man, but having left N.O. area some years ago, the State Park on the West Bank is almost great. But, if you choose to drive the Huey P. Long (also referred to as the Huey P. Skinny bridge) drive it like the local truckers do: Use the middle of the road. Take both lanes.
