camping near the Big Easy

Heading out in June from the south Florida area with our family rockwood pup to the panhandle and eventually Louisiana. Any recommendations for campgrounds/state parks? We'd like to visit New Orleans of course, so any spots clearby would be great.

Bayou Segnette State Park is convenient to the city on the West Bank of the Miss River. Another is Fountainblieu State Park located on the north bank of Lake Ponchatrain. We havent been there, but ive been told its pretty nice.

N.O. camping

Thank you! Both Bayou Segnette and Fountainbleau parks came up when my wife and I began our search. Both look fine and nearby. We were married in 2004 and planned to go there but Hurricane Katrina upset that plan.

I've stayed at both, they are both nice parks. I would choose Fountainbleau as my first choice. You'll see white tail deer walking around the park.

We stayed at Bayou Segnette three years ago. They had wave pool that would accommodate 500 people run by a private entity. Its a beautiful park but not in the best of neighborhoods.

Of the 2 state parks mentioned, I've only been to Fountaibleau and I'd choose that one. It only has 4 water and sewer hook ups so I'd book that early of that's what you need.

Have stayed at St. Bernard and Fontainebleau. Both nice but Fontainebleau is better.

Not sure of the name of the park & the person who told me is away in her trailer. She stayed at a park somewhere out side of New Orleans and there was a shuttle service into the Bourbon St. Area.
