Louisiana’s State Parks offer outstanding opportunities for outdoor experiences. Enjoy superb fishing, boating, paddling and water sports, or get up close with nature on biking and hiking trails, where birdwatching is some of the finest in the country.

After a short drive from New Orleans, Families will enjoy Bayou Segnette State Park to explore the bayou and spend the night in a floating cabin.

Chicot State Park, the largest park in the state is a peace haven for nature lovers located between the Atchafalaya Basin swamps and the hills of central Louisiana. Its biodiversity is so rich that it is home to the Louisiana State Arboretum that presents many of Louisiana’s indigenous plant species.

Further north, between Shreveport and Monroe stands Lake Claiborne State Park where visitors will want to dive in the crystalline waters and enjoy some of Louisiana’s finest freshwater fishing. Nights at this park are downright enchanting with star-filled sky views and stay at one of the park’s two-bedroom cabins nestled among the trees near the water’s edge.

Glamping lovers will want to choose South Toledo Bend State Park, located at the Louisiana’s western border, to enjoy a night under a tent and dinner around a campfire, surrounded by nature.
