NEW ORLEANS - For Crying Out Loud - Toni and Doug are in NEW ORLEANS

Our friends Eric and Karla recommended this RV park in New Orleans called Pontchartrain.  We had some reservations about the park as the latest RV Reviews site comments were anything but complimentary.  Well, I tell you, some people are nuts!




These pictures were taken at sunset.  We went to the bar on the deck where the pool is and had a pizza for our dinner.  The pizza was great.

The complaints on the RV Review site mentioned the sites being small.  We saw a few that might be considered small.  Ours is not small and is laid out so our windows are private.  The complaints mentioned that if you weren't lucky enough to get a waterfront site, you wouldn't even see the canal.  Not true.  There is a public area.  The park has everything; nearly free shuttle to the French Quarter three times a day; garbage pick up at your site every morning; the afore-mentioned pizza and wings place; laundry in two places; the price is just a little more than the state park; and staff that are most helpful.  I will make sure to leave a 10/10 rating to help negate the others.

Tomorrow we will get some groceries and tootle around a bit and Wednesday we will do the French Quarter.  We are supposed to be leaving Friday morning but we may not......

Loved your photos!! It's so hard to go by reviews people write. If you knew the people, you could. But some people can never be pleased. Glad you like it! We'll have to remember it if we ever go back.

I agree - this would definitely be a place we would stay at. And the pictures are gorgeous.
