We chose this resort because we wanted a location we could easily Uber or shuttle to NOLA without having to worry about security/safety of ourselves and our RV.
This resort is located on the Mississippi River in a very industrial part of town. We were here in April and the was great. We came here specifically to do the town.
This resort did not have tent camping but had a lot of villas to rent in addition to the RV/trailer sites. The sites had 50AMP/water/sewer/cable and wifi. There was a small pool and restaurant/bar. There is also a really nice gift shop. You could also kayak or dock a boat at the marina here.
The road to the resort was pretty bad- it is possible it has been paved since we were there and I will update this review if it has. The Rv sites of the resort are fairly close together but the staff was wonderful and helpful. There are several categories of pricing at this park and it was a bit pricey.
The resort offered day shuttles to NOLA for $6 each way- $12 round trip. Uber cost us $20 one time and $40 another due to time of day.
We had a great time exploring and eating our way through New Orleans. We enjoyed the tasting menu at Commander’s Palace, chargrilled Oysters at Dragos, and a great lunch at Auction House Market (think food trucks in an indoor venue). Did I mention that we are foodies?
We hit all the “tourist” activities in our 2 day whirlwind trip to include Bourbon street, Canal street etc AND of course…. coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde.
What would we do differently -
- spend more than 2 days here!!!
- Bring bikes or rent them so we could enjoy and do more of the parks …
- pick up a To Go lunch at Rouse’s market to eat in one of the parks, waterfront or NOLA’s Museum of Art sculpture garden
- do the hop on hop off bus / 3$ all day trolley car
- Do a steamboat tour of Mississippi River
