The park is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm daily for day use, fishing and boating. The pavilions are also available for rental, keeping in mind social distancing recommendations.
BOATERS: Keep in mind that if you enter the boat launch through the overnight road, your fees must be paid at the fee station (blue box) next to the LDWF self-clearing station (green box). Please be sure to tear off the portion that goes on the dashboard of your vehicle to avoid from being cited by the law enforcement rangers.
The cabins and campgrounds have not reopened as of yet.
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 await visitors of all ages--camping, boating, fishing, canoeing, 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.
Bayou Segnette opened 16 new floating cabins October 2016! The floating cabins, situated on the canal adjacent to Bayou Segnette, include two bedrooms, a full kitchen, living/dining area, and a screened-in porch overlooking the canal. Aluminum walkways surrounding each cabin provide opportunity for casual fishing, complete with an attached cleaning station.
Open 7 days a week. Wave pool is only open on Thursdays – Sundays from 10:00 am 5:30 pm. The wave pool will also be open on the following holidays regardless if they fall on what would normally be a closed day:
- Memorial Day
- 4th of July
- Labor Day
Group shelters are a perfect spot for large groups to gather, and the park's group camp provides another option for big gatherings. Park entrance fee is $2.00 per person
