Introduction:

This is an absurdly expensive RV park, but in our view, it was worthwhile. You simply cannot be any closer to all that New Orleans has to offer than this park.

The Basics:

Overall Rating: 3.9/5

Price per night / Discounts: $100 / None

Campground website: French Quarter RV Resort

Our Site #: 1

Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):

2/5: Terrible. It's basically a parking lot with RVs parked right next to each other, though, we will say, there was a good 15 feet between us and our neighbor, which is more than we've seen at some other parks. There are simple grass strips between the sites, so no trees or other barriers to create privacy.

Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):

5/5: It simply doesn't get any better than this. The park itself is right off I-10 and very easy to get into. Once you're set up, it takes all of 10 minutes to walk to the heart of Bourbon Street. The neighborhood was definitely a little dicey after dark so, on the advice of some friends in the know, we walked where we wanted during the day and then took Uber back after dark. The park has a high cement wall around it (with sharp spikes at the top), and the gate is only accessible with a code. We felt safe the entire time we were there.

Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):

5/5: It was easy to navigate around the park and the sites were in excellent condition. All sites are surfaced with brick pavers and the utilities worked well. The sites closest to the entrance (where we were) are farthest from the highway overpass, so we heard minimal traffic noise, but if you are at the other end of the park, I imagine it might be quite noisy at times. Also, if you're not used to city noise, think twice about staying here. You will hear sirens multiple times each night.

Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):

3.5/5: There are no online reservations, so we called to make them. I would caution, at least as of this writing (February, 2017), against getting on their website without good virus detection software on your computer. We were both hit with potential malware/viruses when we tried to access their site. Customer service at the park was good. They came out to meet us as we were driving in, told us which site to go to, and then had us come into the office to actually check in. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful.

Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):

4/5: Wifi was only available at the central office (so, useless to us), but our Verizon worked well.

Summary:

We paid approximately $100 per night for this park, which is far and away the most expensive campground we've stayed at. The only other place we would consider spending this much would be in the Keys...though even that is pretty iffy. Given the location, we thought it was worth the price for exploring all that New Orleans has to offer, but it's certainly not for everyone.
