RV park near New Orleans

We are planning our first trip with the Motor Home in March. One choice is New Oeleans. Has any one stayed near new N.O.? There is a park called French Quarter RV. Has anybody stayed there? We don't have a toad yet, still doing research. We could bring bicycles but don't know if they would be an advantage or disadvantage. FQRV is close to the French Quarter, but I am not sure how close. The ad says blocks from the FQ. That could be 2 to 9999. If anyone has stayed there and can give us some info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Hej Jim and Vicky

Just before Christmas we stayed at Bayou Segnette State Park. With a toad this is a nice park relatively close to New Orleans - without a toad it's to fare from where the action is. We liked it here and would stay here again.

However - when we went to see the N.O. famous cemetery's we did come across the French Quarter RV park and I would have to say that it is certainly within a reasonable walk to the French Quarter. If you have the ability to "cruise the French Quarter on foot" I would say that you should have no problems walking from the RV site. Personally I wouldn't even bother to "unfold" our bikes to make this short journey.

The surroundings to the RV site did come forward as being "a bit rough" but the actual RV site itself looked OK to us.

Go for it and I hope you enjoy your stay. We hope to come back some day.

We spent a week at FQRV Resort just after Mardi Gras this past year and loved it. It's a great park and an easy walk to Bourbon St. Security is very good within the park. We didn't have any trouble walking to/from FQ but it's a downtown area in a large city so keep your wits about you and be aware of your surroundings.

The park will never be accused of being a "bargain" because it is quite expensive but it's location, location, location.

Good Luck,

We stayed at FQRV this past October. It is very convenient to the French Quarter. When we checked in they told us to walk but we may want to take a taxi back after dark. It you catch one on a one-way street headed toward the park it cost 5 bucks. Study the trolley system. You can buy a pass and get on and off as you please. They have two systems but the pass is good for either.

My mistake. The taxi cost 8 bucks not 5.

I forget the RV resort name, but it was also close to the FQ, and provided shuttle service. Seems it was just SW of the lake causeway.

Boeing Guy,

I will second what the Danes say about Bayou Segnette State Park. We have stayed there a couple of times. LA used to accept the Golden Age pass for out of state folks, but no longer does. But full price at about $18 for a huge 50 amp paved backin site with water you can't go wrong.

So the savings might offset the cost of a rental car. We seen quite a few folks have enterprize show up with a car for them. One thing you will find out real fast is that it is no fun traveling in an MH without a toad. Looks like your planning on one, so you might want to look into that sooner rather than later. Plus you might want to visit places that are further away.

For the past two years I've stayed at the French Quarter RV Resort (French Quarter RV Resort - French Quarter RV Resort) in the April, around the time of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival | April 29 - May 8, 2011). As their web site says, rates are event driven and varied during the time I stayed there, depending on the event schedule. At the same time, the resort is part of Passport America (and other discount programs) and offers one night per stay at 50% off their regular, non-event rate.

It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the park to the edge of the French Quarter, all across an used parking lot of a now defunct grocery store (I think it was a Winn-Dixie but not sure). There are also some housing projects that parallel the parking lot.

The resort has several vans that shuttles guests round trip to the Jazz Fest which is included in the daily rate. This is really convenient as it eliminates a parking headache or a decent sized cab fare.

I really enjoyed the two times I've stayed there and wouldn't hesitate to return. At the same time, I also like to try new locations and will definitely give Bayou Segnette State Park a try next time I'm on the area.

Here's a few photos of the resort ... Wayne
