This past week we dropped the big bucks and stayed at the French Quarter RV Resort. For approximately $93 a night (weekly rate), it was still cheaper than getting a hotel room and we planned to treat our stay like a vacation rather work all week.
Shortly after we got here, we discovered that there is overnight camping allowed at the public parking lot next door for $50/night.
When we return (we will return, we absolutely loved it here), we’ll probably camp a few nights in the public lot and a few in the RV Resort. It’s nice having full hookups for daily showers and we enjoyed soaking in the jacuzzi after long days on our feet.
