Bayou Segnette State Park, Westwego

3.6
#10 of 20 in Nature in Louisiana
Bayou Segnette State Park offers the best of everything. Just a twenty-minute drive across the Mississippi River from New Orleans, a multitude of recreational opportunities awaits visitors of all ages -- boating, fishing, camping, canoeing, hiking, picnicking, playgrounds and, of course, swimming in the wave pool, as well as an ecosystem that offers you the chance to spot plants, trees and wildlife from both swamps and marshland.

Both salt and freshwater fishing are available because of the park's unique location. From the boat launch, you may explore many areas not readily accessible by overland routes. Catches of bass, catfish, bream, perch, redfish and trout are common in the area.

On land, picnic areas are available for the whole family, and the playgrounds will delight the children. Group shelters are also a perfect spot for large groups to gather.

After you have splashed the day away in Bayou Segnette's popular wave pool or skipped across any one of the adjacent waterways by boat, you will be glad you took the time to sit back and watch nature at play--for the wildlife is abundant and the vegetation worth closer study.

  • Clean, well located out of the hustle and bustle of New Orleans yet only minutes away. This is one of the older Louisiana State Parks with campsites for RVs and the sites are relatively narrow. But it...  more »
  • Spent 6 nights in site #98 in a 35 foot Class A motor home. Great site in winter, but beware in summer--there's a swamp next door! Bayou Segnette is very convenient to the city at about 15-20 minutes ...  more »
  • Stayed here for 5 nights visiting New Orleans. You can either drive in to the French Quarter or take the Algiers Ferry, either is about a 20 min drive. We took the ferry the first day but after that j...  more »

  • Nice place. Super quiet and away from major traffic noise. We tented and it was very nice. It's set in a bayou so make sure you've got some repellent. The staff were really helpful and friendly. They have laundry machines too here. It's the best close location to the French Quarter if you're doing the tourist thing. Be aware use the address to find this place in your GPS. If you find it as a point of interest the access road doesn't exist.
  • A nice park to stay at. They have nise nature trails that go through the swamp, very nice for a morning or afternoon walk. The camp spaces were far apart(witch was nice). There is FREE laundry facilities. The bathrooms were basically clean. The playground was nice the roads going in and out are well marked and wide enough for pretty much any RV. It was nice and quiet.
  • Great state park...mostly (all?) back-in spaces, but lots and lots of space around each camper. Trees, wooden porches, playgrounds, FREE laundry facilities, hiking, dump station on the way out. Easy drive to NoLa proper. Will definitely stay here again...want to experience the Wave Pool next summer!
  • Excellent well kept RV park a ferry ride away to the French Quarter. The only thing that could make this better is sewer connections at camp site and a additional clean out station. I still gave it 5 stars because the price is right.
  • The playground area here is nice the camping area is nice this scenery is nice the staff from the girl that takes your money to the park rangers are all rude mean and nasty for no reason. They made you feel like you were bothering them to spend your money. Pulled over to the side by the boat launch on a day when there was absolutely no one in the park and had the park ranger treat me and my grandkids like we were a bunch of criminals.
