Take This Unforgettable Road Trip To 6 Of Louisiana’s Least-Visited State Parks

Did you know there are 21 state parks in the Pelican State? State parks are a wonderful option when you need a little outdoor adventure in your life, and you’ve got plenty to choose from. These six state parks in Louisiana are some of the most underrated in the state, and we’ve got a fun little road trip that’ll take you straight to their gates.

To keep the road trip drivable for a long weekend, we’ve focused on the state parks in the northern part of the state. These beautiful state parks have such a unique beauty that’s unlike the sandy beaches you’d find at Grand Isle State Park or the endless cypress trees in the swamps of Chicot State Park. Don’t worry, you’ll see cypress trees and beaches on this road trip. Ready? Let’s go!
