Pontchartrain Landing

Pontchartrain Landing

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Location:  New Orleans, Louisiana
Site Quality:  Gravel roads with gravel pads. There were both pull thru and back in spots.   
Type:  Commercial
Access:  Take exit 239A (Almonaster Blvd E) off I-10 and go to France Rd. Left on France Rd and the park is on the right in about 1.5 miles. France road goes through an industrial area and it was very rough with potholes and puddles.
Staff:  All staff we met were friendly but the office area stayed quite busy.
Amenities:  Full hookups, swimming pool and hot tub, laundry, bath house and restrooms.
Cellular/WiFi:  AT&T and Verizon 2 bars without amplification. Data rates were pretty good on both.
What we liked: Buddy sites. Great restaurant on site with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Clean showers. Good store with a variety of items. Seemed safe although the security gates in and out of the park remained open throughout our stay.  Shuttle service provided to and from  the French Quarter for a small fee.
What we didn’t like: It rained before and during our stay and there were large puddles and mud everywhere. The park is in an industrial area which wasn’t very pretty. Some night time noise from nearby train tracks and a busy non-commercial airport.

Shreveport / Bossier City KOA

Shreveport / Bossier City KOA

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Location:  Shreveport, Louisiana
Site Quality:  Asphalt roads throughout the park. Depending on the type of site reserved pads are either gravel or concrete. If it is going to rain, the premium sites with concrete pads would definitely be preferable here as many of the other sites were muddy. Each site has a table and chairs. 
Type:  Commercial
Access:  Easy access from Interstate Highway 20 on the East side of Shreveport. 
Staff:  The park attendant who checked us in was very helpful and friendly. 
Amenities:  Full hookups. Bath house at the main office. 24 hour laundromat at the park office. Small store and available propane on site. Two dog park areas, pool, playground and a pond. 
Cellular/WiFi:  AT&T and Verizon 4-5 bars even without amplification. We got just under 9Mbps both AT&T and Verizon. My phone had much higher data rates. The park had WiFi but we did not use it.
What we liked:  Surrounded by lots of trees so it felt like you were not in town.
What we didn’t like: Getting out of our site was a bit tight. The park is fairly close to IH20 so there was some road noise particularly outside. While inside it was not a problem.
