2010 Mardi Gras New Orleans?

We're thinking about driving to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Fat Tues is Feb 16. Wondering if anyone else has been or is going. Would like to know about boondocking/camping in the area. From what I hear there are some pretty dicey areas one may want to avoid?

Thanks for any advice, comments, etc.

I would be glad to point you in the right direction. What kind of experience are you looking for? Mardi Gras is an enormous event ranging from mild to wild; gruff to black tie and all points in between. I think it would be well worth the trip and is a great experience.

I would recommend setting up near the beginning of the uptown parade routes Friday and staying there through Bacchus on Sunday. I would then relocate to the Algiers point area Monday for easy access to the Quarter via the ferry. Bring your bike; it’s the best way to get around.

The only area that I can think of for “boondocking” would be in the Bonnet Carre spillway, but that’s 30 miles out. I can think of a few places where you could probably set up for the weekend without any problems, but I wouldn’t call them boondocking. Also, I've always wondered about this place Looks a bit upscale and pricy though.
