We stayed at Fontainebleau state park a couple weeks ago. It is a typical state park. Most sites are tight but we were able to squeeze our 40 footer into site 3. The only problem is most of site 3 was under water and thought for sure we might get stuck. But it all worked out in the end. Good thing I had a 50' extension cord though.

RV Park in New Orleans

We stayed at Jude Travel park. Nice family owned grass and gravel park. Affordable and gated. Enterprise rental nearby worked for us as we needed to rent a car. They do have a pool and hot tub. Very nice and clean bath house. Nothing fancy but we'll stay there again.

Thanks for everyone's help on this.
While there check your GPS for elevation. Mine read -24 ft. Enjoy

We stayed at Jude travel park also, in addition to it being gated and had free cable, there are also train tracks just outside the back of the park. They weren't that noisy however. If you are interested in local down home cuisine there is also a 'mom and pop' style café a half block away. At least that is the way it was 3 years ago.

Much of the city of New Orleans and the surrounding area is below sea level.
Officially the elevation of the city is ‎-6.5 to +20 ft... (the French Quarter is at +3 ft, and Bayou Segnette state park is at 0 ft.).

We stay at Bayou Segnette every year for past 5 to attend NOLA Jazzfest...clean, quiet, comfortable, reasonably priced, and 10-15 minute trip to French Quarter....all good.

I notice a lot of folks mention staying in Slidell. I live in Slidell and when we want to hang out in the Quarter we stay at the French Quarter RV Resort. Its within walking distance of everywhere we want to be.

When staying at Bayou Signette State Park, drive to the Algiers Ferry, park there (there is a fee to park), and take the free ferry right to the French Quarter. It is an urban state park but nice and quiet when you are camped inside. We found the staff to be exceptionally helpful when we stayed there. And the price is much much cheaper than the French Quarter RV Park though I understand one is paying for convenience when staying there.

What route do you take to Bayou Signette and is the drive/neighborhood safe? Does the ferry operate in the evening?

You can look it up, but the route we took was basically highway 5 South to San Diego, then highway 8 to Casa Grande where we picked up highway 10. We followed highway 10 all the way to New Orleans. Outside of New Orleans we transferred to highway 310 going South to highway 90 going East. Stay on highway 90 right to the entrance of Bayou Signette Park. It is really that simple.

These are wonderful roads most of the way. You only have to stop twice on the way there for Immigration Check Points that are on the freeway.

As for the Ferry, our experience was a tad bit different than others have expressed here. I would suggest you look at this website which seems to describe our experience much better. We chose to park in the neighborhoods adjacent to the ferry landing rather than pay the $5 per day. They look a bit shady, but this part of town is simply old and from what we could tell the folks who live there are solid people. You can make you own choice on where you park.

Another vote for Pontchartrain Landing. Shuttle leaves at 10:00 and 2:00 to the French Quarter. Picks up at 2:30? and 8:00. A little hazy on the middle times, we always went in at 10:00 and came home at 8:00. Pretty decent place to eat right on site and a fair RV park, a bit dusty for me when we were there. But the location is what drew me there anyway.

NOTHING within walking distance. Our car never moved for 5 days thanks to the shuttle. No need for groceries with the French Quarter every day and the eats on site. Good experience all in all. Don't miss the WW2 museum, allow an entire day.
