Outdoors in Louisiana 

With year 'round boating, biking, fishing, golf, hunting, and more, it is easy to see why the state's nickname happens to be "Sportsman's Paradise.” With thousands of hiking and biking trails, nearly 20 State Parks, and one of the largest game preserves in the United States, Louisiana is the ultimate playground for families who love the outdoors. Our vast expanse of coastal wetlands and countless birding trails make our state a habitat for many rare and endangered species and a natural paradise for bird watchers as well. Come step in to the wild! 

Tips for Family Trips in Great Outdoors 

St. Bernard State Park - Reintroduce yourself to Mother Nature as you hike, picnic or camp in this 350-acre park along the Mississippi River. 

St. Francisville - Find inspiration, just like naturalist John James Audubon did, among these rolling hills. Biking, kayaking, birding and hiking opportunities are plentiful.

Rip Van Winkle Gardens, New Iberia - Stroll through lush gardens and beneath ancient live oaks, where legend says pirate Jean Lafitte buried treasure.

Alligator Park, Nathchitoches - Get to know the gators, go ahead it's safe at Bayou Pierre Alligator Park. Feeling brave? Help at feeding time.

Poverty Point, Pioneer - Tour one of North America's largest prehistoric earth works, dating back to around 1750 BC and learn about the state's innovative early in habitants.
