The Hike To Louisiana’s Pretty Little Tickfaw River Is Short And Sweet

Tickfaw State Park in eastern Louisiana features four ecosystems within its 1,200 acres, and you can visit them all on the park’s River Loop Trail which takes hikers to the little Tickfaw River. Located close to the New Orleans and Baton Rouge metropolitan areas, Tickfaw State Park is a popular day-trip destination and an easy hiking excursion to add to any itinerary.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If you want to extend your stay here, there are 50 campsites and 14 cabins on hand for overnight visits. The cabins accommodate eight people. Other activities in the park include canoeing on the river and exploring the Visitor Center with displays about swamp life, an 800-gallon aquarium, and a gift shop.

In 2021, Hurricane Ida caused quite a bit of damage to the park. It would be a good idea to call ahead to make sure everything is operational before venturing out.
