Discover New Orleans, LA

The city of New Orleans offers something of interest and excitement to every visitor. This whole region, consisting of the city and its environs, is a haven for those seeking city life, annual festivals, food culture, family fun, natural wonders, historic sites, and outdoor recreation. Now is a great time to visit The Big Easy. The open wounds of Katrina are long gone, but a few of the visible scars still remain. So, you can enjoy everything this city has to offer and also appreciate what its residents have overcome recently.

New Orleans is a mixture of cultures. That blending comes together in the food, the music, the people, and the vibe. But if you explore the city from a hotel room, you miss out on much of that blending. A much better option is to rent an RV while you are in the Crescent City. Some people like to “rough it” in a simple camper or trailer. That’s not an option in a hotel room -- to rough it, you’d probably have to stay in a part of town that’s also rather rough. There are also lots of high-end RV rentals in New Orleans, though. These vehicles offer many of the amenities of a nice hotel room at a fraction of the cost.

Before you pack your bags, it’s a good idea to plan your trip. Read on for tips to help plan an RV vacation in New Orleans that you are sure to remember.

The Great Outdoors

Many people go to New Orleans and only see the sites in and around downtown. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. You could easily stay in the Big Easy for a week or two and not get the total experience of places like the French Quarter. But Louisiana, in general, is a place known for its outstanding outdoor attractions. So, there are lots of things to see and do just outside the city. One of the main reasons people rent an RV in New Orleans is that they can experience these places at their own pace and on their own terms.

With an RV rental in New Orleans, you can easily explore the various parks and nature preserves nearby that feature the best of the local environment, including saltwater estuaries and sanctuaries for swamp life. There are no less than three state and national wildlife refuge areas within a short drive of the city, and visitors are welcome to fish, hunt, camp, hike, or go boating in the various salt and fresh waterways. The estuaries and grasslands in this region of the Gulf of Mexico are unique, with few other places existing like it on earth.

Crescent Park probably belongs at or near the top of your destination list. This open, marsh-like space offers sweeping views of downtown New Orleans, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, and some of the large ships that come in and out of the port. There’s always lots of activity, so it is a great place for a run or a stroll. There are lots of local shops as well, so you can soak up the local culture.

While in town, also check out a Kayak-iti-Yat (“where y’at” on a Kayak) tour of the Mid City area. There are lots of historic homes and unusual wildlife. The normally-placid water is great for beginning kayakers who are just there to enjoy the scenery in an unusual way.

Of course, what is a visit to New Orleans, especially if you rent an RV, without at least one swamp tour? Local ecologist Paul Wagner began the Honey Island Swamp Tour in 1982. The expert guides at this park know exactly where to find large groups of alligators, nutria, waterfowl, turtles, and other exotic wildlife. For the nerdier tourists, there’s ample opportunity to learn about wetlands ecology. For everyone, there are photo ops galore.

RV Parks

There are lots of great RV trailer rentals in New Orleans, and also lots of great RV parks in and around the city. We especially recommend Three Oaks and a Pine, which is right near the French Quarter. The park is also very secure, very large, and it has lots of nice facilities, like a lounge, laundromat, and shower facilities. The Bayou Barataria RV Park is outside town in Harvey. It has great onsite management and, as the name implies, is right on the bayou.

Honorable mention goes to Pontchartrain Landing, which is just a stone’s throw from the Gulf of Mexico, and Jude Travel Park, which is quite nice but books up quickly.

Exploring the City

While on an RV vacation in New Orleans, you can explore the various old cemeteries, heritage plantations, and historic battlegrounds throughout the area. Many significant conflicts and political events took place in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana during the Civil War. Not to be forgotten are the annual festivals that include the notorious Mardi Gras festivities and many other special events.

New Orleans has an excellent public transportation system with lots of trolleys. So, it’s nice to leave your New Orleans motorhome rental securely in the park while you explore the city. In fact, the quaint, clean, and efficient streetcars are an attraction unto themselves. Take our advice and get the unlimited Jazzy Pass.

Jackson Square is also a very nice place to visit. There is plenty of music and food, people and fun. If you haven’t been to the Big Easy in a while, the World War II museum should definitely be on your radar. This huge museum is widely regarded as one of the best in the United States. There are lots of films and interactive exhibits along with tons of artifacts.

RV rentals in Orleans Parish make an excellent way to explore this one-of-a-kind place. Find your perfect fit and start packing for New Orleans!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

How many people can sleep in an RV?

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!
