“Call First!”

Reviewed Mar 16, 2018

Overall Rating

I'm sure it's nice but.... We drove to there yesterday (March 15/2018) to camp there while exploring New Orleans. The whole park was under about 5 feet of water with only the roof top of the boat launch pavilion showing. Obviously road and park was closed.

“nice, quiet, clean”

Reviewed Feb 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Its a very quiet area right on the water. Nobody ever bothered us. Be sure to get a permit, their easy to get, and free. Several spots for the BIG RIGS to. Those spots are on gravel, all others are on grass. It poured rain one night, so of course we got stuck. 1/2 bag of kitty litter, hammer down, and a couple ruts later and we were on... more

“Beautiful sunsets, great service, don't go down dirt road after rain”

Reviewed Jan 26, 2018

This is an amazing spot for the price (free). We had to get a permit to stay, but no one ever checked. There were only every one or two other RV campers while were there. Our GPS took us the back way in and WE GOT STUCK (whoops). We should have scouted ahead, but we saw others coming from the opposite direction, so we figured it must ... more

“Great access to New Orleans”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2018

Overall Rating

This place has amazing access to New Orleans and that is enough of a reason to give it 4 stars. Everything else is just so-so. It's located in an industrial area just off the highway. The roads are easy to traverse going in and out. There are 15 sites but only about half of those would be appropriate for a larger rig. We saw only ... more

“Easy access free camping”

Reviewed Jan 14, 2018

Overall Rating

First, you do need to obtain a permit, but it is free! We stayed here in January, unfortunately during a cold snap. The reason I say this is we never opened our windows, had to run heat everyday. This was good in the fact that the campground is very near the oil refineries and there is a constant low roar, white noise like. If the ... more

“Would definitely stay here again”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2017

Overall Rating

I heard about this place on this site and I have to say it is a lot nicer than people made out. we are dry campers, so this place is just that. There's no hook ups or water to be used, but is very quiet and peaceful. The park rangers are here a lot and a few police officers stopped in while we were there (made us feel safer). There are... more

“Quiet and on the water”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice little primitive camping spot, with 15 designated grass sites for RVs. Most rigs will fit with no problem. Bumpy field and not perfectly level, but not bad. People coming and going during the day for boat launching, fishing and using the bike trail, but very quiet at night. Very windy one night we stayed. Looks like you'd nee... more
