  • Tickfaw is open! They had some flood damage in 2016 but the park and campgrounds are back open for business. Had a great time kayaking down the bayou and observing wildlife. Park staff were very friendly and helpful, as always.
  • Go to the end of the drive and to the left is a half mile walk to the river. Fun thing is the entire walk is over a well built wooden elevated walkway. The is also a suspension bridge. In warmer weather is a splash pad
  • Fun canoeing. They do need more signs along the canal. A lot of turns are not marked.
  • Nothing too special unless you are really into walking on boardwalks through the swamp
  • The paths aren't very well kept, but the splash park is cool and the camp sites look nice. The canoe rental process is. . . Weird. If you have your own gear, this place is awesome.
