I can't answer about in town parks, but across the river is Bayou Signette, a real nice state park HTH, Nat

Travel I would avoid all of the intown RV Parks just like the plague. Judes, Mardi Gras and Riverboat are all Disasters. They are dirty run down and in an area comprised of mostly low income housing, junk yards and low coast motels. Try KOA east or west also Nats choice is one of the best in the area. Good Luck

We stayed at Bayou Signette which is not such a long way from downtown. It is a lovely park, reasonably priced and a nice haven after a busy day in New Orleans. Also very secure.

I stayed at KOA West 2 years ago. Nice, neat CG. Level concrete pads to park on. Sites were large. Surrounding area was not the nicest I've seen, but did not have any problems at all. They have a shuttle that will take you downtown so you don't have to sorry about parking.

Advice from a native....
The in town parks are in an urban area, but well secured. You are not going to stroll the streets there at any rate. You want to go to the French Quarter.
Bayou Segnette is nice and the closest SP. There is also a really nice SP across Lake Pontchartrain (Punch A Train) that is really pretty. It is Fontainebleau SP.
When your trip gets closer, write for any other local tips....

We stayed at the KOA West in Jan. It was very clean, concret pads. Not as large as some, which we liked. They will tell you where to drive to catch the trolly to take into downtown. We did not do that the first day, then tried and just loved it. There is lots of parking downtown but it is high. The Trolly takes you thru some really pretty neighborhoods on the way.
We were told about a place just over the Boarder at a Casino so on our way to Florida we stayed there one night. It is in Bay St Louise. They have tours from there to New Orleans so if you do not have to be down town I would highly recommed that park. The sites are huge, cheap, and it is just beautiful.

Have to agree with K-Star. Stayed at the KOA-West and it was an above average park. However, there is a downside. I noted one evening an employee putting out about a dozen water pumps all over the campground. So I asked what are the pumps for? He told me that when it rains the place floods. He added that in heavy rains this in not the place to be. So we packed up and left. The next evening while we were local television at park in Texas and it showed the area where we were and boy was he right, the campground is not the place to be in rainy weather. So plan according and watch the local weather report.

I too have stayed at the KOA west and found it to be very satifactory. We drove all around the area in our car. Do not even consider taking the RV downtown. Going across the Hughey Long Bridge was a thrill especially when a train is there to.
