Bayou Segnette State 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 awaits 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! Each of the cabins offer overnight accommodations for up to eight people and will rent for $120/night from Oct. 1 through March 30 and $150/night on Fridays and Saturdays from April 1 through Sept. 30. 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.
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
