Explore the Outdoors

If you are hoping to visit New Orleans when you book an RV in Jefferson Parish, you might be tempted to spend the majority of your time in the legendary city. However, while you're here, it's worth giving rural Louisiana a chance because it has some jaw-dropping landscapes and nature parks.Fairview-Riverside State Park is one place worth checking out, found on the Tchefuncte River near Mandeville. Fishing and boating are the most popular activities in the small estuaries of the park, where catfish, redfish, crabs, crayfish, and trout are the most commonly caught and cooked fresh meals. What was once a plantation estate is now a lovely park with recreational areas and a campground where you can stay with the River Ridge RV rental.Bogue Chitto State Park, named by the Choctaw native people, is a swampy wonderland with cypress trees and bayou-wetlands. The lodge overlooking the park from above is a fabulous place to spend the night, but if you have a campervan rental, you can be accommodated at the deluxe campground complete with fishing lakes, picnic spots, playgrounds, a disc golf course, and an amphitheater for live music and events.For a larger, wilder adventure, you can venture off to De Soto National Forest near Brooklyn, Mississippi to see a half-million acres of lush forests and wetlands close to the Gulf of Mexico. This sprawling forest is home to thousands of species of animals, with tons of migratory birds and other fascinating species existing in their natural habitats. Aside from the vitally important ecosystems within De Soto National Forest, there is lots of space to hike, bike, boat, and fish.

City Sightseeing

What is there to do in New Orleans? What isn’t there to do in New Orleans is a more appropriate question. The city has taken on a mythical status thanks to its complex culture and memorable experiences like the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the world-famous Mardi Gras. Of course, the city is more than just a place to drink and be merry; you can sample Cajun food influenced by African, French, Spanish, and Native American traditions to taste some of the best food you can possibly have. If you are looking for some sightseeing ideas besides Bourbon Street, you can visit the National WWII Museum for one of the best and most insightful glances into the tragic war. This award-winning museum has interactive exhibits, documentaries, and historical artifacts to help teach the public about why the war was started and fought, how it ended, and everything in between.Several historical landmarks make for a fun walking tour through the heart of the city, like the Preservation Hall, which was essentially the birthplace of jazz music. This music venue and museum still holds concerts to this day, on hallowed ground that continues to inspire musicians from all around the world. St. Louis Cathedral is another cherished landmark, with elegant architectural style and a distinct New Orleans feel.The Audubon Zoo is another phenomenal place to spend your day, one that is great for children and adults alike. There are exotic animals from all over the planet in this natural space, where guests can observe and often interact with animals in hands-on situations. You can see rare tigers and white alligators among other impressive creatures at this well-run institution. Be sure to utilize your KOA park shuttle to get around town to search for other unique restaurants, shops, and landmarks when you rent an RV near New Orleans KOA.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
