It was a very pleasant stay. James was an amiable host. Filtered water was available. Nice outdoor shower. The people who live in the trailers are very cordial and helpful. The French quarters is an hour away by public transportation with a little bit of walking. Public transportation runs 24 hours so you don't have to worry about having a late night out at the bar.
Definitely would recommend it if you like camping out.

This is a very cool spot to stay if you're passing through NOLA with a camper van or a tent set up. Just know before you go: you're not just the guest of one host, but of the community who live full-time on the property (about 5 families/couples/units when we stayed). Everyone we met was super kind and generous to show us around and give us recommendations for town. With the shower and toilet being communal, there's little privacy. For the ladies, there is a pee shack with a great little sawdust toilet seat setup, but when we stayed, it looked like it had been in disuse for a while, based on the spiders. That's the other "know before you go": this spot is right next to the levee, very low and very grassy. There are plenty of 6 and 8 legged creatures sharing the space too, especially when it rains (particularly the blood sucking variety). But if you can hang with skeeters and peeing outside, the payoff of cool people in a really artsy space is well worth it. Book!
