Very good place to stay if visiting French Quarter. A shuttle service is offered for a fee and well worth it. The sites are very tight but they were getting even large rigs in there. The owner is very helpful with parking. There is a switching station behind the park but we never heard anything. There is a small area for dog walking but you can take your dog next door to a big open grassy mowed field for exercise which saved the day. We spent three nights. Facility is gated so we felt secure there. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

The French Quarter and ask the owner about a big park in town. We were too tired to do more than the French Quarter but we would take our dogs and drive to the Park if we were to go back to New Orleans. Apparently there is a lot to see there.

Stayed here for 2 days. Nice little well maintained park with owners that are very helpful and friendly. The price can not be beat for the area. 5 miles to French Quarter. Security gate at night. Very tight but okay for parking the rig and enjoying NOLA. Owners gave suggestions on where to park and dine. 50 amp service, sewer, water cable TV and good WiFi. I would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

The camping ground is really just a parking area for your RV in a secure gated environment. There is a small swimming pool but no other recreational activities. The bathroom facilities are modern and were very clean - some of the cleanest facilities we have found. Good laundry at reasonable cost. Full hook up but very limited space between RV's with some awnings touching slide out of next RV. WIFI available but drops out constantly. Bus service from directly outside camp ground to city provides excellent and cheap service which we used. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

The owner met us on arrival and escorted to site - possibly very necessary to assist some to back into small tight sites and was happy for us to get settled and have lunch prior to making payment. This camp ground provides a perfect inexpensive option for RV travellers and we would definitely stay again if in the area.

First visit to New Orleans. Security was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Train tracks were behind the campground, but there was not enough noise to be an issue. We would stay there again. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed at Jude Travel Park before and have since upgraded to a 41' with 4 slides. Can't say enough about this clean and cozy park. We had no problems parking with tow car parked directly in front of our rig. The Jazz Festival Good Sam rates are only $10.00 more than the regular Good Sam rate. Owners are extremely helpful with festival, downtown parking, and restaurant info and the shuttle is still only $5.00. It's a gated park with good WiFi- the park is kept neat and clean (including an older motor home on premise that houses a couple less fortunate than ourselves.) The bathrooms are immaculate!! We decided to stay a few extra days as we map out our next leg. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night during the French Quarter Jazz Fest which allowed the park to increase their rates. The owners are very nice. The problem was they were trying to squeeze big rigs in a park not designed for big rigs. We stayed here in a 45' motorhome and our friends were in a 41'. We did not belong here. My nose was sticking out in their driveway and I was required to park my toad in front of my neighbor's rig. Getting into the space was an event. Getting out the next morning required the next door neighbor to move his truck. This park should limit at 30'. There are a lot of homesteaders with several rigs in poor repair. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

When you first pull in I have to admit it is a bit scarey. I was parked next to a party in an old broken down motor home covered with a blue tarp and one space a way from me as a couple sleeping in the back of a pickup truck under the canopy. But sprinkled in and among the full timers, were nice 5th wheels and then later that night 5 huge motor homes pulled in with their cars in tow. RV parks are truly a melting pot for America and a good experience for me. We slept well to the sound of pouring rain and like most all parks, everyone in the park was friendly. The park offers a valuable service, that being offering a shuttle to downtown New Orleans for $5.00 each way. It only took us 15 minutes to get there and the owners of the park were the drivers. They were very pleasant and offered suggestions on where to eat and what to see. They were very willing to answer questions we had about the hurricane. The owners are very pleasant folks who are working hard to make a living. I wanted to give the park a high rating because of them. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park was easy to find and enter/exit. They have a security gate with good reason. The neighborhood is run down and in a bad part of town. The park is narrow and deep and all gravel (I felt bad for my dog having to walk on it). A railroad switching area is in the back but besides an occasional bang when the cars hook up the noise was minimal. A motel borders one side and a large building borders the other side. On the bright side, the park managers are great. Gave us lots of good info on the French Quarter, restaurants, parking tips, etc. If you have a dog make sure you have plenty of flea protection (we were there in March 2015). Also, bring a 3x5 rug or step as they do not permit large area outdoor rugs to cover the green stuff (I would not call it grass). Watch out for doggie land minds as people, at least the ones who stayed before us, have a tendency let their dogs go behind their RV - instead of walking them to the front of the park where a small grass oasis is. You would not go there for the park, but we liked that it is pretty close to New Orleans. I would go again. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. Very clean, including the restrooms, showers and laundry. The staff is very helpful and gave us information about getting into New Orleans, restaurants, parking, etc. It is about a 15 minute drive into town, and we parked for $12 for 12 hours. The campsites are small and close together but very well kept. The neighborhood isn't that great, but the park is gated and safe. There is a small pool, but we didn't use it. The sites are all back in, but the owner will assist if needed. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

For New Orleans, a decent older place, gated due to not being in a good area of town, very tight spacing and very friendly helpful staff. Close to I-10, grass / gravel sites, full hook up and cable; slow wifi. Staff provides shuttle service to French Quarter.

Laundry room is older and well used, bathrooms well used but clean. Had reservation for months at normal rate of $30 but the football semifinal playoff cost us $40 instead. Not an issue.

Would return knowing it's just a place to park. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a small but nice well-maintained park and the owners show their care. the bathrooms are clean as is the laundry though the washers and dryers are showing their age. The sites were level, and big enough for our 34' motorhome. A 45' mh pulling a large dolly pulled in without a reservation and had to go on down the road to another park that was big enough for the mh and large dolly and had an opening. The gazebo and hot tub are nice and well-lit. The owner is a font of knowledge about NO and can even tell you where to park in the French Quarter. The hook-ups are good. The park is gated since it is not the best part of town, though we walked through it several times. We stayed 2 weeks and had the weekly discount. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small park on the north side of New Orleans. It is in a questionable neighborhood, but has a secured gate at night and alert, responsive, interested staff, so we did not feel uncomfortable. The gate is electric and is closed at dusk. There is a keypad code, which they provide, so you can get in at any time after it is closed. The restrooms/showers are marvelous! Well designed, well kept, cleaned daily, and conveniently located near the office. There are no pull-thru sites. The park is bounded by a motel on one side and a small office building on the other, with a rail yard behind. The yard is not very busy and was not a distraction, day or night. The park is very well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They will help you unload/disconnect from your dinghy then help you back in. They have strict but liveable rules, which are basic common sense and not cumbersome. There is a nice gazebo near the small pool & spa, which is lighted with "rope lights" and pleasant for casual conversations, even in the evening. Would I return? Yes. It is the nicest campground in the immediate area and convenient to shopping, downtown, and the French Quarter. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. Liked cause on City bus line. Takes you to the French Quarters. Did have to transfer to streetcar. Cheap ride 40 cents for seniors and free transfers. Can't beat that. The owner is very nice and helpful. Our first time in motor home and had to back in. No problem. They got us in the first time. I was amazed. Small park but very nice. We got next to pool and loved it. Stay here again, You bet. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.

To be honest, he sites are very close to each other and few trees or other shade. Not very private. But, having said that, it is in the middle of New Orleans and land prices are at a premium so it is understandable--and not only that, you should be out visiting the city and not sitting in the campground anyway! The owners were super nice and ran a shuttle to take you to/from the French Quarter for only $5 per person. The area is a little sketchy but the park is fenced and gated and I never felt unsafe. Warning, if you are traveling there on I-10 Westbound (coming in from Mississippi), you have to turn left onto Chef Menteur Highway (four lane highway) once you exit the interstate, and there is no traffic signal. Needless to say it took awhile to get a break in traffic in both directions to be able to turn left with our fifth wheel. The pool and hot tub area was nice, but it was too cold on our trip to use it. The bathrooms were small, but clean. There is an on-site laundry room which was clean also. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.
