Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser and Louisiana State Parks have finished surveying all facilities affected by Hurricane Ida. Work has already begun to clear debris away, make roads passable, and assess damages to buildings inside state parks and historic sites.
Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego is currently closed with no electricity, minor flooding within the park grounds, minor damage to the group camps and cabins, and multiple trees down that will need to be removed from the park.

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
