Even though Louisiana is a coastal state, we don’t really have the beach reputation our Gulf Coast friends to the east do, but that just means our hidden beaches in Louisiana are that much more special. When you’re looking for new outdoor adventures in Louisiana, there’s one particular state park that’s home to a beautiful little beach that’s just delightful on a hot summer day.

If you’re wanting a coastal beach day, head down to Rutherford Beach, another one of our favorite hidden beaches in Louisiana. It’s one of the best places in Louisiana to find seashells, and you can park your car right on the beach!
