Best park on Grand Isle

We stayed here in February for a few days and this is the best park on Grand Isle. Mind you, Grand Isle is almost like a different country, so don't be expecting outrageous large RV parks like some places in Arizona, but if you want to have a fabulous beach and like a bohemian feel to the community, this is THE place to be in Louisiana. The park is basic, but better than any other on the island. Onsite laundry is a rarity and they have it. Not to mention walking distance to the grocery and the small store in the gas station that also makes fabulous pizza. There's also a few bars and restaurants nearby. When busy season hits, walking to these places is gold!

Nothing fancy

This is a decent little park, but the rate was a bit high due to the amenities. Some people also complain about road noise and the train going by, but that didn't bother us, we didn't even notice it.

The park was clean, although dated. We did not use any of the facilities. Roads through the park are very loose packed gravel, they looked like they might be newer. Some of the fulltimers told us that it gets super busy by February.

The location of the park is very convenient to the border crossing to Los Algodones, Mexico. There is another much larger park about the same distance way, just on the other side of the freeway and one right at the border crossing, but it's not very nice and quite expensive.

We have some pictures we took at the park on our blog here, unfortunately I am not able to upload them with the review for some reason:

Awesome location!

Great location, can not be beat! We were RIGHT on the beach.

There are a few pictures of our rig in the space on our blog:

Rincon parkway and the others in the area do not measure up. The price is a little high considering amenities and there are no seasonal or longer term discounts.

We paid $32 for dry camping spot. It was $47 or $50 per night for hook up sites. When the campground is full I can see it being very crowded. Sites are right next to each other with no separation so privacy wouldn't be very high.

They have fire rings and tables at almost every site. All but the "premium" sites are on gravel but its not like a gravel road, more like a hard pack gravel/sand/dirt mix. It rained when we were there and this was not super muddy although there were some puddles.
