Kayaking and/or canoeing is a great activity that’s perfect for both a group of friends or a solo adventure. And if you time it right, you can escape the scorching heat that Louisiana summers are known for. Located in Webster Parish, Lake Bistineau State Park is perhaps one of the most underrated state parks in Louisiana, featuring everything from an 18-hole disc golf course to 10 miles of woodland trails that will lead you through the parks scenic pine and cypress forests. There’s even an 11-mile canoe trail that’s maybe one of the best-kept secrets of the park!
For more information, including cabin rentals and park maps, visit the park’s website, and be sure to give it a follow on Facebook, too. What’s your favorite paddle trail in Louisiana? Shout it out in the comments below!
