For a truly magical summer getaway, a visit to Lake Claiborne State Park is a no-brainer.
Nestled along the scenic Lake Claiborne, this 643-acre state park might just be one of the most beautiful in Louisiana.
When it comes to outdoor adventure, Lake Claiborne truly has it all.
Six miles of nature trails, a world-class disc golf course, fishing opportunities, and so much more are all waiting for you!
During the summer months, the beach is a popular spot for locals looking to beat the heat.
Sink your toes in the sand, do a few laps in the water - whatever you’d like! There are also plenty of picnic tables in the tree-line so you can escape the sun.
Be sure to bring your fishing pole.
Visitors can fish from the pier or take their boat out onto the 6,400-lake, which is stocked with channel catfish, striped bass, white perch, and largemouth bass.
When it comes to lodging, you have plenty of options.
The cabins are perfect for groups of any size.
Ten of the cabins can accommodate up to eight people.
So you can bring the whole family, plus some friends! The cabins are equipped with just about everything you'll need - you'll just need to bring some food and you're ready to rock.
Of course, you can always bring a tent and sleep under the stars.
Imagine waking up to a view like this!
In the evenings, sit outside by the fireside making s'mores and telling ghost stores.
S'mores and ghost stores are practically mandatory when you're camping.
And the sunsets? Incredible.
The sun paints a mesmerizing color splash against the lake. You may never want to leave this peaceful oasis!
