Bayou Segnette State Park

7777 Westbank Expwy.

Bayou Segnette State Park offers the best of everything. Just a thirty-minute drive across the Mississippi River from New Orleans, a multitude of recreational opportunities awaits visitors of all ages -- boating, fishing, camping, canoeing, hiking, picnicking, playgrounds and, of course, swimming in the wave pool, as well as an ecosystem that offers you the chance to spot plants, trees and wildlife from both swamps and marshland.

Both salt and freshwater fishing are available because of the park's unique location. From the boat launch, you may explore many areas not readily accessible by overland routes. Catches of bass, catfish, bream, perch, redfish and trout are common in the area.

On land, picnic areas are available for the whole family, and the playgrounds will delight the children. Group shelters are also a perfect spot for large groups to gather.

After you have splashed the day away in Bayou Segnette's popular wave pool or skipped across any one of the adjacent waterways by boat, you will be glad you took the time to sit back and watch nature at play--for the wildlife is abundant and the vegetation worth closer study.

When arriving the park rangers are very friendly. The parks location is great just minutes from shopping food downtown and the French quarter. The bathrooms are nice with free laundry,how cool is that? Some sites have decks that's a great addition. Trash cans are spotted throughout the campground for easy disposal. One of the best state campgrounds we have been too would definitely come back.

We camped here for two days. Great stay! The bathrooms/showers are clean and well kept. New Orleans is incredibly close. Camping here allowed us to have one night of campfire and outdoors and day time walking around the French Quarter. Perfect combination! The air was very damp we struggled a bit to get the campfire going. Also our tent ended covered in little snails! Mosquitoes weren’t too bad with citron torches and mosquito repellent. We didn’t realize till the last morning we were camping so close to swamp area! Great experience over all.

If you've never experienced the Louisiana swamps, here is a very cheap and convenient place to do it! Just outside of New Orleans, this park has many boardwalk trails weaving through the swamp and you WILL SEE many gators and snakes close up (often too close) in their natural habitat. The swamp is also beautiful and we were lucky enough to see a big owl close up. I believe you can't see natural like this on an expensive swamp boat tour!

The Shrimp Market. Best place in the US to find seafood. Every time we visit, they give us a price break. Shrimps are par excellant.

Nice state park. Beautiful and wooded, lots of rv sites, but well separated and some shielded by trees. Plenty of trees and water. Warm showers, could be cleaner though. Nice restrooms. Parks for the kids. Oh, and free laundry! You might have to wait a bit but still it’s free.
