First class all the way with the facilities you get at Tickfaw State Park. Very spacious shower and toilet facilities that are kept in tip top condition. I'm the type of person that if it isn't clean then my butt isn't touching the toilet seat. All I can say is my butt's been there so the seat has got to be clean. I'm talking about the day that I was there and can't make a claim for other days but I would have to say that the whole park is kept to the highest cleanliness  standards. I give a lot of credit to the park Ranger and his carefully chosen staff that I found very helpful.

 Tickfaw State Park is a unique 1200-acre park located along three miles of the Tickfaw River. The park offers diverse recreational, nature and educational opportunities. This State Park has it all. Camping, fishing, hiking, bird watching, biking and canoeing are just some of the things you can enjoy while you are here at the park. The many alligators are a must see in the fishing pond. This is truly a unique opportunity to see the bayous and swamps of southeast Louisiana while having all the comforts of home if you chose to stay in the spacious cabins.

Four Distinct Eco-Systems
Strolling through four ecosystems on over a mile of boardwalks through Tickfaw State Park, visitors can experience the sights and sounds of a cypress/tupelo swamp, a bottomland hardwood forest, a mixed pine/hardwood forest and the Tickfaw River.

Snowy Egrets and Great Blue Herons can be seen gathering crawfish and other food amid a mix of palmetto, wax myrtle and native azalea. Sightings of alligators, turtles, snakes, squirrels, opossums, songbirds, wild turkeys, and migratory waterfowl, as well as tracks of beaver, coyote, deer, fox, and raccoons, offer close encounters with wildlife less than an hour from Louisiana's capital city.

The adventurous can explore the park's 1,200 acres that include backwater swamps, and dark-watered sloughs that form the wetland network created by the Tickfaw River.

Periodically the park site serves the region by detaining floodwaters when winter and spring rains overflow the steep banks of the Tickfaw River. These periods of occasional flooding offer a unique opportunity to educate visitors on the importance of periodic flooding in the cycle of life that makes wetlands an invaluable habitat and breeding ground for wildlife and fisheries.

Check posted program schedules for guided hikes on the boardwalks, or you may prefer the more relaxed approach offered during a nature program presentation at one of the three education pavilions and an outdoor amphitheater at the nature center. You can also join a nighttime program, go night hiking or listen to the swamp nightlife from the porch of your vacation cabin.

Bicycle, stroll, or skate the interconnecting park roadways. Rent a canoe and take a fun-filled trip on this unique section of the Tickfaw River. Visitors can bring their own canoes or rent ones supplied by an available canoe vendor. The Water Playground offers refreshing fun for those not quite adventurous enough to explore the swamps and sloughs.

A gift shop in the Nature Center (open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily) offers souvenirs with a local flavor.
