Best kept military RV park on the planet?, could very well be. We have stayed in military RV parks from Seward Alaska to Hanscom Field, and many in between. This is a great place to stay and such a good idea to have New Orleans next door.

This is one of the finest military parks that we have been fortunate to use. The site concrete pads are large enough to accommodate 43 to 45 foot Class A's or large 5th Wheels. Access to utilities (W/S/E) is convenient and somewhat to the rear of the pads on most sites. Most are back-in with only one pull-through. Staff was friendly and very helpful and provided a wealth of information about the area. If you are going downtown during the day, use the Algiers Ferry and save yourself the hassle of downtown parking. For the New Orleans area, there is no better value to be found. While we were here night aircraft ops were non-existent making for very peaceful evenings. It may just be the time of year, but there were lots of space availability during the week when we were there. Truly a hidden jewel.

First let say the staff were great in assisting you with information of the surrounding area and especially for downtown parking and getting around. This park is a hidden treasure as for a Fam-Camps for the price. Free WiFi, cheap laundry, clean restrooms, clean and level cement pads. Yes the road has a few potholes but I've worst and yes there is noise from the jets but what would expect staying on base that has airplanes. The NEX and commissary are great, the biggest one I've seen on many of the Navy bases. I would come back and stay longer and tell my friends that they need to plan on staying here.

We had a site facing the canal with the runway on the other side. The canal had trash. Gravel road into the campground was full of potholes. That's pretty much the only real negatives about this place. We stayed 2 weeks. Sites are cement pads surrounded with clover and grass. Plenty of room between sites. Hookups are in the middle. No trees. Laundry $1, dryer 75 cents, very clean. Also clean restrooms and showers. No off leash dog park but plenty space to walk dogs. Also, there's an off leash park nearby in one of the neighborhoods that we used. Free WiFi was fairly strong during day, not so much at nite. Campground is noisy with planes taking off or idling on runway which is just on the other side of canal. Check in person was very helpful with nice welcome package at check in. They accept UPS and Fedex at park. Exchange and commissary are within walking distance. Park is neat and orderly. Cute base. Would stay here again.

I witnessed this park being built as I lived across the street in the military housing units. The concrete pads are a welcomed addition to the new campground. I found the old campground did not have working laundry machines or good drainage. With daily rain storms it necessary to find a good dry site anywhere in New Orleans. Make sure you lock up your bicycles when you leave your site, my son's was stolen after leaving it out overnite.

Great site. Use the 407 bridge over the canal to bypass the tunnel; straight down DeGaulle. We're returning for an extended stay in June.
April 7-13, 2015
On the advice of a New Orleans Native, we took the General DeGaulle drive (very first exit after crossing the bridge on US-90BUS) until across the Intracoastal Waterway. That avoided the Belle Chasse tunnel which is narrow but passable. With the exception of location, every aspect about this RV Park exceeds the former Navy Annex park in the Algiers neighborhood. The Staff is friendly and responsive. The Base facilities (NEX, Commisary, MWR, Gas Station, Chapel) are nearby. YOU CAN WASH YOUR RIG HERE!!! Base security is among the most polite and professional we have encountered. And, a word about activity in the Big Easy. Do not miss the National WWII Museum. This is an expertly produced testament to and history of the greatest achievement of the Greatest Generation. Plan an entire day there. Bottom Line: We won't look elsewhere for our next stay in New Orleans.
Please be advised, the directions here are incorrect! It took us 2 hours to find this base!!! The directions state that you should take (sr23/ exit 18) this is WRONG, exit 18 does not exist!!! (Editors note: the directions state to take the SR23/18 exit - not exit 18. Directions have been updated to state to take the SR23/SR18 exit). Once you get onto the business 90 toward West Bank, the exit starts at 12 and goes down. New Orleans is the worst place to get lost in if you have a large rig, we have a 35ft class A pulling a car and the streets in town are very small. The truth is you need to take exit 7 called Laffette, then take a left under the bridge onto the SR23, not 18! I almost diddnt go to this RV park due to the comments about "very very rough roads" but this is also false information, NONE of the roads going to this base are even close to being "rough". They were very flat and smooth roads just like highway 10. In downtown New Orleans there are a few places that's a little rough but no where near the base. Aside from that that base was small but nice, wifi was very slow and I always got kicked off and had to login again, kinda like dial-up.

If I had any complaints, it would be the city roads. Plan on them being very very very rough. The base is beautiful and the park really nice. WiFi is great and we toured NO but we took the Ferry and that was a great way to go. $1 each way and parking $5. Took the trolley and you get unlimited on/off for $3. Bourbon street was very disappointion because of the awful smell but French Qurther interestion and historic. Enjoy the entire experence and the base is a 10. Navy did a a great job and office staff very very helpful.
