We ended up RV camping at Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego, La., because we wanted to spend some time in New Orleans and couldn’t find any options that would work for us in the city. The RV park in the French Quarter was charging over $100/night, which was way out of our budget. Bayou Segnette State Park ended up being the perfect campground to visit the city and still be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all.
The drive into the Garden District was about 13 miles each way and 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. The park was reasonable at $20/night for electric and water hookups and right outside the park entrance is a fresh seafood market with large sweet gulf shrimp for sale at less than $5/pound.
We arrived at 5pm without a reservation in early December and did not have any problems getting a site. We did call in the morning to make sure there were RV sites available before we drove over.
Enter through the main gate during regular hours (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.) which will lead you to a building with two lanes: one for cars and one for RVs (on the right). There is a separate gate for after hours access that requires a code, although the gate was always open when we used it.
