Piney forests, rolling hills, five fishing piers, and a beautiful lake draw visitors to this quiet, majestic state park. Designed to keep the focus on nature, park facilities blend with the natural landscape to enhance the outdoor experience of this 655-acre park.

The visitors center, swimming pool and tennis complex provide a starting point for your day in the park. Guests can choose from 65 improved campsites, eighteen (18) vacation cabins, two (2) lodges and a group camp that sleeps 52 for overnight stays. Playground areas are found in both the day-use and overnight camping areas.

Fishing piers and boat docks attract visitors to Lake D'Arbonne, the marvelous 15,250-acre centerpiece of the park. Recreation on Lake D'Arbonne is tremendously popular among locals and visitors, and record catches of bass, crappie, catfish and bream make Lake D'Arbonne a fishing haven. Wide open areas of the lake, about seven miles from the park, appeal to water skiers and pleasure boaters. The boat launch at the park opens up all of these opportunities to outdoorsmen.

Hours of Operation: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday through Thursday. All park sites close at 10 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and days preceding holidays.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
January 8 Refreshing and Relaxing by edjd
I have been there four times staying in one of the cabins - I have no complaints, I really enjoy the peacefulness of the enivornment especially when walking the trails. Cabins are clean and really nice. Excellent for family with children or just couples.
September 4 A wonderfu get away by A T
We were there in April, for a family reunion. The lodge was more then what we expected, plenty of room, and the area was just great. The only slight problem, was one of the Bunk Beds mattress support had been trimmed too much, and the mattress fell. That person ended up sleeping on the mattress on the floor. Other then that I highly recommend the park. As a matter of fact we are planning another get together sometime in Oct. or Nov. The staff was very nice, and the location is super.
August 9 A great getaway
The view of the lake is so beautiful. The cabins are clean and spacious. The staff is very professional. This is a great place to bring your family for a quite weekend.
June 22 Peaceful Union Parish by keepsintouch
As a hometown resident of Union parish, it is so nice to rent these cabins and enjoy something we once knew. The scenery is beautiful and it is such a family oriented place. The cabins are spacious and due to that fact we have made a annual Birthday party celebration for our daughter each year. This accomodates our entire family that is spread across Union parish.
