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.
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
bottomland hardwood forest, a mixed pine/hardwood forest and the
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.
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.
