NOLA RV Park Recommendation

we may be heading to NOLA in a couple of months, well after Mardi Gras, to see the WWII Museum. we have zero interest in seeing or experiencing the French Quarter...not our style. looking for a FHU RV park recommendation. prefer a quiet place away from the rowdiness...if such a place actually exists. also recommendations on what else to see. TIA.

Do a search on this forum, there have been many, many postings on campgrounds. I prefer Pontchartrain Landing. Easy to get in/out of with a 45 ft motorhome and for the most part, it is nice and quiet. Can be a mud pit if you get major rains ... or a dust bowl if it hasn't rained in awhile. We have a stick and brick in NOLA ... and I have always found PL to be safe.

As far as things to do ... visit trip advisor, and make a list of the numerous things ... WWII museum is an absolute must ... some great history tours are very interesting (even if they are in the Quarter) ... lots of Plantations to visit down river road .... have fun ...

We have stayed in many parks in and around NO and without a doubt the best from our way of thinking is Bayou Signette State Park it's about 10 miles out on the West Bank in the town of Westwego La. It does not have Full hook ups but has water and electric and is very quiet and pretty. Every time we go to NO this is where we stay.

We stay on the north side of Lake Pontchartrain in Mandeville.... there is a state park there named Fountenbleau State Park. Nice quiet clean.... and the restaurants in Mandeville are much better than the tourist junk you will get in New Orleans. When you decide to go into New Orleans, just hop on the Causeway and you are downtown in a hurry.

Mardi Gras World (https://www.mardigrasworld.com/about-us/) has tours of the 300,000 square foot working warehouse where floats are made for Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans.

About an hour and a half southwest of New Orleans, in Morgan City, is the Oil Rig Museum (https://www.rigmuseum.com/). The tour includes a visit on board the first offshore oil drilling rig.

Take care,
Stu

We stayed at Jude travel park it is FHU and gated, it did have some long term residents, and a train track close to the back, but we felt safe, and trains were negligible while we were there. couple other places that are interesting include the old mint now made into a museum and the battlefield where Andy Jackson defeated the British (?Chalmette? sp?) also Jackson square is neat, with the Cathedral, even though it is in the quarter.

Go to Central Grocery and get a Muffaletta sandwich then go across the street to Cafe Du Monde for Beignets.

We just left NOLA this morning. We were at the French Quarter RV Resort. It was very nice and convenient but it was the loudest place I have ever stayed and that includes truck stops and rest areas. The traffic noise and sirens never stop.

KOA West of Town is a decent place. Quiet, nice bike/walking trail on the levy across the street. You can bike the trail all the way to Audubon Park. Best sandwich (IMO) in the world just a few blocks away.
