Announcements & Press Releases
Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our visitors, event participants, and staff the annual Siege of Port Hudson Civil War Re-enactment that was originally scheduled for March 27 – 28, 2021 has been POSTPONED until November 6-7, 2021.
Chicot State Park is housing some COVID-19 patients who are recovering safely in isolation on the Northside of the park. Since the Lake Chicot Loop Trail goes through the North and the backside of the campground, all but 2-miles of that trail remain closed. It also means that only 1 backpacking site is open (#2). Here's a summary of our hiking trails and their status:
Multiple Louisiana State Parks and Historic Sites were affected by Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Nearly all parks and historic sites have recovered and reopened except for:
SAM HOUSTON JONES STATE PARK in Lake Charles. TBD, a reopening date in late 2021
If you had reservations at one of these parks, you will receive a full refund because they are closed.
