We spent the first 2 nights of our trip in CBD and the last 2 nights here. The campground was cheaper, cleaner, and quieter. Will definitely stay here on our next trip to New Orleans.

Not in the park proper but within a few miles. There are battlefields to find and explore. And of course New Orleans 😁
