Pine Crest RV Park — Slidell, La.

Close to New Orleans, but away from the bustle
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 3.5 stars
  • 70%


Summary:

The thought of bringing an RV to the New Orleans area can be a little intimidating for most people. We had many questions regarding the decision to visit NOLA. Is it safe to camp in New Orleans? Is is appropriate to bring our family there? Is it worth the hassle?

We opted to stay a little distance outside the city for peace of mind and were very happy with our decision to stay at Pine Crest RV Park. We arrived after dark and were greeted and directed by friendly and helpful staff. Pine Crest RV is a great choice if you like to stay out of the heart of the hustle and bustle but still have easy access to all the fun!
