Bayou Segnette State Park, Westwego

(100+ reviews on the web)
State Park Nature / Park
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.

  • We reserved online, and arrived after hours and the gate was locked, our reservations did not show options on where or how to get in, we had to call a friend that had stayed there before so he told us...  more »

  • I visited here with family a couple of weeks ago. The park has a boat launch and a huge picnic/cookout area, but we were unable to find any trails or anything like that. The bayou was full of animals ...  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.
  • 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.
  • These floating cabins are a great option for families who want to visit New Orleans without staying in New Orleans. When we visited, the cabins were brand new (opened in October 2016) and clean. We enjoyed waking up to the bayou sunrise; having a cup of coffee and being able to cook breakfast in our own space. Each cabin has its own pier, a screened porch and there are decks on both sides. There is even a place to moor a boat beside the cabin. There are 2 bedrooms that sleep six. One bedroom has 2 bunk beds. The hiking trails are pretty short (less than a mile), but they are great for kids. Other amenities include a playground and wave pool. This is a kid-friendly place that is safe with lots of guard rails if you have young children. To top it off, the New Orleans French Quarter is a very easy 30 minute drive.
  • Very Clean Security Great for Family outings either for the Day or over night.Hook ups for campers BBQ pits Picnic Table,you can even put up a tent.Stores close by also.
