If you are coming to gamble, this is a fine option. Otherwise, move on. "right across from the beach" is kind of a stretch when you get there and take a walk up and down the strip. The staff were nice and they do have a guy patrolling in a minivan. It's sandwiched between a Super 8 and a Go Cart/ Mini Golf place. Behind the mini golf place is an All Girl Show bar so basically anything you want is within 100 yards.
Safe option close enough to NOLA but on the West Bank so you can visit the swamps, etc. Rangers patrol the park and the camp section is far away from the day use area and patrolled by rangers so it's nice. The spots are level and paved and the laundry room is FREE. Nice. Westwego and the surrounding area's leave a little to be desired, but it was an okay few days in LA.
Passport America rate. This is our first trip to Alabama and we wanted to find a family friendly place that was central to everything we wanted to explore during our short stay here. This park is perfect for families with children and anyone else looking for a clean wholesome place to stay (read- no scary clientele). It's very "country" yet so close to the Florida Alabama beaches. We're also able to visit the USS Alabama in Mobile and the Pensacola Air Base in FL without having to drive all the way up from the beach. Look at this camp on a map and you will see it's in the perfect spot. We have been traveling extensively in our motorhome and really love to stay in camps run by a family. The folks that run this camp are so nice and work hard to make sure the grounds are groomed and that you are happy. The sites are all spacious with tall pines. Even though there are very few children in the camp other than our two (it's offseason) they still had hayrides and a campfire with smores. I was shocked none of the snowbirds joined us ;). Speaking of snowbirds, this is a great place for them too. The playground isn't smack in the middle of everyone's site. The activity areas are more around the outside of the grounds and we saw a number of big rig snowbirds tucked here and there and everything else on down to the couple tenting across from us. It's worth the stay.
