News from the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office:

Butte LaRose Pontoon Bridge Will Be Closed On Sunday At 12:00 p.m. Until Further Notice Due To High Water.

To access Lake Fausse Pointe State Park, take the Henderson Exit instead of the Butte LaRose shortcut. 

Upon the advice of Parish consultant engineers and the Parish’s Public Works Department, Parish President Chester R. Cedars has ordered the closure of the Butte LaRose pontoon bridge, effective at 12:00 noon on Sunday, May 26, 2019.

More Information

For your safety, some Louisiana State Parks were closed due to power outages or storm damage from Hurricane Laura. All parks have since been reopened except for Sam Houston State Park. 

Due to extensive damage, we are unsure when Sam Houston State Park in Lake Charles will reopen.
