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

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 a perfect
spot for large groups to gather, and the park's group camp provides
another option for big gatherings.
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.
