Jefferson is a sportsman's paradise. Whether it's a quiet get away fishing, an adventurous deep water excursion, or hunting for buck that you seek, come Visit Jefferson Parish! 

The diverse region of Jefferson allows you the ability to explore nature yet remain close enough to the action of the city. You can fish within minutes of your hotel at Lafreniere Park or in the serene setting of Lafitte, a fishermen's delight. Cast from a charter boat off the coast of Grand Isle, home of the Annual International Tarpon Rodeo; or hunt and hike in the Barataria Preserve of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.

Adventure awaits in the 580-acre Bayou Segnette State Park. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, located just minutes away. Nestled on the banks of Bayou Segnette, the park's extensive grounds comprise the most popular state park in Louisiana. Spend the day swimming and splashing in the wavepool, then, spend the night camping along the banks of Bayou Segnette in their new floating cabins. Or, perhaps you prefer a night beneath the stars along the beach of Grand Isle State Park. Head over to Elmer's Island beach and see the largest single coastal ecosystem restoration in CPRA history which includes 13 miles of gorgeous white sand beach! Hiking and nature trails abound throughout the parks and are waiting to be explored.
