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.

    This place is beautiful and reasonable priced. You can have all the advantages of livign in the wetlands and then you're very close to downtown New Orleans.  more »

    It was a last minute camping trip and Bayou Segnette State Park was a great choice. Large camping sites (although our pad was not level). Since it was fall camping we were hoping for a festival to att...  more »

    This is a fully equiped camp with a full kitchen sleeping room for 8 with a boat dock. Why get a hotel when you have a new camp on the bayou with fishing and.wildlife off the back porch.  more »

    The campsite for RV is roomy. Bathhouse were kept clean. Free laundry is nice. There's boardwalks over swampy area in the park was fun. Best of all its so close to New Orleans, we park our RV at the Ferry station and took our bikes riding the ferry for only $2 per person.

    I love this park my family goes there every summer. We enjoy it there is a wave pool and you can rent boats or just fish from the porch.

    The camp ground was clean and nice, and price was good, but there is no sewer, so when we was leaving, the dump station was out of order, the backup station was in the middle of a mud hole, no driveway for your camper and no water to back wash with, all you could do was open the huge underground door, and stick you sewer hose in it and hope none splatters on you. Fire ants, nasty bugs everywhere. Will probably not visit this park again

    Great State Park for RV camping. The spaces are huge the grounds are well kept. The bathhouses need attention though. They were dirty and no hand soap or dryers for your hands. The best part is the seafood market down the street. Every night we had fresh shellfish right off the boat.

    It's not bad, but the mosquitos are unreal! We couldn't enjoy being outside of our motorhome because they were that bad. We were in spot 9 by the bath house and the grill and picnic table were on the wrong side of the camp site (our awning was on the left the everything was on the right). If you use the bath house to shower, you will be sharing it with tree frogs and wasps. They have speed tables and our car scraped going over them. We didn't visit or use any of the other facilities in the park so I can't comment on those.
