Bayou Segnette State Park offers the best of everything. Just a twenty-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.

  • What a gem!!! Twenty minutes to the French Quarter and a world away. Beautiful, quiet and dark surroundings are found at this park. Lots of room to walk and look for birds and other wildlife. So inexpensive too for all it has to offer! Okay would come back here anytime I am in the area. Laundry and shower facilities too, but we did not use them.
  • A very pretty park, unexpectedly so, given how close it us to down town New Orleans. The RV camp sites appear to be mostly level. All are paved. Some have patios. Plenty of picnic tables. Elevated walkways to allow you to explore some of the wetlands. Hookups are where and electric only, though there is a dump station at the exit of the park. All in all, a very pretty and quiet place to spend a week or two.
