Please note, Bayou Segnette State Park is closed until further notice. As part of the state’s efforts to combat the current Coronavirus pandemic, Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego is closed to the public. Because of its proximity to New Orleans, the area currently experiencing the most cases of the virus, the park is being staged as a possible overflow isolation area for suspected cases of COVID-19.
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
