State Park

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.

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.

At Tickfaw State park, you can go night hiking or listen to the swamp nightlife from the porch of your vacation cabin. Check at the Nature Center for scheduled programs. While there, view the 800-gallon aquarium stocked with fish found in the Tickfaw River. There are also displays featuring the animals, history and culture of the area and of Louisiana. Be sure to watch the 8-minute introductory video about the history of the park area.

Bicycle, stroll or skate the interconnecting park roadways. Bring your canoe or kayak and take a fun-filled trip on this unique section of the Tickfaw River. The Water Playground offers refreshing fun for those not quite adventurous enough to explore the swamps and sloughs.

Beautiful place

First trip back since Hurricane Ida. Since my last visit, they have added a lot of tentrr sites in the tent section and 2 or 3 around the lake. The paddle trail is open, and while paddling, I saw a family of otters. There’s only around 2 hiking trails open, one around the lake and a portion of the long trail, which goes to the river, in and out. Spoke with a ranger who stated they think most of the trails will be open in 8 months.

Laid back huricane impacted bayou

Got to the park with no reservation and found a spot no problem. There are both tent and RV slots. RV neighbors are visible, but there is a bit of space.,Each slot comes with a table on a wooden platform, a fire ring, and what appears to be a game hook, as well as a water spigot and electric hookup.

Took a walk before the rain set in. Many of the boardwalk trails appear to be closed due to storm damage. Saw a whole pack of night herons flying together. The bayou is spooky feeling with gator crossing zones and interesting cypress trees. Seems like it should be buggier than it is for on a warm day in late March.

The restroom and laundry room seem clean and well tended.
