Homer - Lake Claiborne State Park

225 State Park Rd.

Take your pick: swimming, fishing, birding, boating of all kinds, waterskiing, camping, hiking or just plain relaxing and enjoying unsurpassed natural beauty. It's all here . . . at Lake Claiborne State Park. For fishermen, the freshwater lake was lavishly stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, channel catfish, black crappie, striped bass, chain pickerel, bream, and white perch. The lake itself, at full reservoir level, has a surface area of 6,400 acres.

Two-bedroom cabins are nestled among the pine trees, and many offer a view of the lake. The RV campground rests among the slopes of the north Louisiana foothills, offering shaded spots to get closer to nature. Whatever your preference for an overnight stay, you'll be sure to rest peacefully.

One of the most popular activities for visitors of all ages is swimming at the park's sandy beach. The beach is situated on an inlet of the lake, and is protected from boats and waterskiers. So work up an appetite for that fresh fish supper by taking a brisk swim in Lake Claiborne's famous clear water. Ecologists and sportsmen alike hail the lake's excellent water quality, and you will too, once you've made the trip to Lake Claiborne. Once on site, you will see the area come to life as a park naturalist will be available to present nature-based programs and give guided hikes.

The woods of Lake Claiborne are also home to a wide variety of wildlife. Lovely nature trails and a scenic overlook will allow you to appreciate the beauty of the area at your own pace. Or you may be interested in a variety of nature tours, offered on a regular basis.

Cool cabins on the lake with a playground nearby, picnic facilities, and room to roam. Great opportunity to get away.

My husband & I visited to check out the campgrounds. We are planning on camping here in the Fall when it is a bit cooler. Beautiful place! Can't wait til October!!! Cabins look amazing with beautiful views of the lake. All cabins are equipped with large back decks with grills. Each cabin has a swing, a picnic table, and a fire pit directly behind the deck, facing the lake. Prices are very reasonable for camp sites & cabin rentals. So excited!!!!

Great disc golf course, natural tee pads that are taken care of, good tee signs, plenty of soft 4s and a couple soft 5s. A must play for any golfer.

Amazing camping on a gorgeous lake! Love spending time here! Also there's a couple of really amazing camping spots located across the lake that you have to boat to. They are very secluded and super nice!
