General Information

Description - Enjoy championship fishing, relive a Civil War battle, hear the best of Louisiana's country music, or pitch a tent under the stars. State Parks are open 365 days a year. State Historic Sites and our Preservation Area are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Each one of our State Historic Sites was selected for its historical, cultural or archaeological significance. Museums, artifacts, outdoor displays and interpretive programs are some of the ways each area tells its remarkable story. Again, buildings and structures are suited to the character of the location. The Louisiana State Arboretum in Ville Platte, a State Preservation Area, offers visitors a living botanical museum with natural growth and plantings grown for scientific or educational purposes. Trees, shrubs and flowers are labeled for observation along an extensive network of trails.

Attractions - Most State Parks feature a waterfront location, campsites and picnic areas. Several have cabins and/or group camps (all with A/C) which, like other buildings in the parks, were designed to reflect each park's cultural environment and ambiance. For reservations, call 1-877-CAMP-N-LA, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Recreation - You can hike, fish, bike and enjoy birding and nature trails. Historical experiences and overnight camping are available.

Climate - Southern Louisiana experiences a subtropical climate that's warm throughout the year. Winter months bring low temperatures near 40 degrees F and highs above 55 degrees F. During the summer expect high temperatures to reach 95 degrees F frequently, with mid-afternoon showers. Humidity is highest in August and September. Northern regions of the state have cooler winters and somewhat warmer summers than the south. Low temperatures in the winter dip into the high 30s and highs reach 60 degrees F. July and August are the hottest months with average high temperatures reaching 100 degrees. Humidity is slightly lower in the northern uplands and the average rainfall in May is higher than any other month.

Location - Maps and directions to each Louisiana State Park are available on the wildernet.com page describing the park.
