1. Cypremort Point
There’s not much around Cypremort Point, and that’s a good thing. The Cypremort Point State Park is an ideal spot to do a little fishing, and the views overlooking Vermilion Bay are truly mesmerizing. Stick around until sunset - you won’t regret it.
2. Lake Martin
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the beauty of Lake Martin, one of the reason is appeals to nature lovers from all walks of life. You can drive down and see the lake from your car, or you can take a stroll along the nature trail. For a completely immersive experience, rent a canoe and paddle out into the waters so you can see the lake from an entirely new perspective.
3. Bogue Falaya Park
Tucked away in downtown Covington, Bogue Falaya Park is a great spot to park it for those moments when you just need a little break from it all. There’s a lovely seating area near the river where you can just sit back and watch the Bogue Falaya River move along, and you might just have the spot all to yourself.
4. Longleaf Vista Recreation Area
This picture-perfect spot is located in the heart of the Kisatchie National Forest, and the best part is that you can have this grand view right from your car, but you’ll want to get out and walk around.
