    Whether you’re looking for a convenient base for exploring New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, or a waterfront retreat for relaxing in nature, Fontainebleau State Park offers both. Located along the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, and named for the Fontainebleau Forest near Paris, France, the area was founded in the early 1800s as a sugar plantation. In fact, the remains of the plantation’s old sugar mill form part of the 2,800-acre state park’s visitor center and museum. The park’s diverse ecosystem—including bayous and mossy woods—serves as an expansive wildlife preserve, hosting more than 400 species of birds and animals—including alligators! The park also boasts one of the largest white sand beaches in the state, a perfect place for sunning, swimming and paddling.

    Fontainebleau State Park offers 116 improved campsites for RV campers, and more than 250 unimproved sites for tent campers. RV sites are equipped with water and electricity hookups, and can accommodate vehicles/trailers up to 70 feet; a few pull-through sites can accommodate rigs up to 120 feet. Tent sites are mostly primitive, with 33 designated sites and a large community area. There are also two group camps. All sites have access to water faucets, flush restrooms, and showers; a dump station is located in the upper camping area. For those traveling without their own accommodations, the park also offers cabins and group lodges. Reservations are recommended for RV sites; most tent sites are first-come-first-served. Dogs are permitted, but must remain leashed. Campsite rates range from $18–$33/night; cabins and lodges are $150–$210/night.

    Guests who are interested in relaxing and recreating in the park have access to a variety of onsite amenities, including picnic areas, a water playground, fishing piers, beaches and swimming areas, kayak and SUP rentals, and Wifi service. The park’s two nature trails, including a portion of the Tammany Trace Trail (an old railroad line converted into a multi-use path), are excellent for wildlife watching. Anglers can fish for various freshwater species of bass, bluegill, sunfish and catfish in the park’s ponds and creeks. Outside of the park, visitors can go antiquing in the local villages, enjoy fresh seafood from several nearby eateries, or head for the local brewery for a refreshing pint. New Orleans, and all its history, culture and flavor are just a short drive across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway.

    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.

    Scattered throughout the park beneath a canopy of huge oak trees, you will find numerous picnic tables, as well as a group pavilion, a playground, and comfort stations. Spend a relaxing afternoon on the river or venture out into the water for lively outdoor recreation.

    If you prefer to stay on land, the park's nature trail will take you by the river where you can enjoy the view. Then, cap off the perfect day by staying overnight in the park's campground.

    The cool, crystal-clear waters of the Tchefuncte River yield bass, bluegill, white perch, and bream near the park area, and channel catfish, speckled trout and redfish where the river meets the lake. Freshwater fishing from the river bank or a boat offers unmatched delights for even the most casual fisherman. Crabbing in the lake and the river is also popular.

    Just two miles away by road and a few minutes by water is the Madisonville public boat launch. Many visitors use the launch for access to the calm waters of the Tchefuncte River or the exhilarating expanse of Lake Pontchartrain.

    Fricke's Cave, which – despite its name – resembles more of a gorge, possesses delicate sandstone spires created when water erodes the surface underneath pebbles. The pebbles remain perched atop the spires, while over time water splashes on the sandstone surface, forming the two-foot-tall fingers of sandstone that shoot up from the now-lowered surface. Boardwalks have been built so that visitors can admire the sandstone creations from afar, as the formations are too delicate to allow visitors to walk among them.

    Fourteen miles of equestrian trails wind through some of the most interesting topography of southern Louisiana, with the trailhead located near Fricke's Cave. A day trip to Bogue Chitto State Park will be a full one, with a river perfect for canoeing or kayaking, 11 lakes stocked with a variety of freshwater fish, a water playground, numerous picnic pavilions and an outdoor classroom.
