WELCOME to Bayou Segnette State Park

Bayou Segnette State Park is located in Westwego, Jefferson Parish southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana, on the west bank of the Mississippi River.

Bayou Segnette is not far from the urban center of New Orleans, yet it features access to two types of wetlands, swamp and marsh. 

Saltwater intrusion coming into the canals from the Gulf of Mexico created the marsh. This is a remarkable habitat for plant and wildlife. 

This habitat is home to alligators, nutria, armadillos, opossum, racoon, mink, red-tailed hawks, kites, red-winged blackbirds, bald eagles, and cardinals.

  • Features
    • Boat launch with access to the marshlands and waterways of Bayou Segnette.
    • Twenty waterfront vacation cabins with air conditioning, heating and piers.
    • Camping for RV's and tents. There are 98 sites with water and electric.
    • Comfort stations with showers and Laundry.
    • RV dump station.
    • Group Camp with kitchen and dormitories for up to 120 people.
    • Meeting room that will accommodate 60 to 100 people.
    • Wave Pool in the day use area and a swimming pool in the campground area.
    • There is a 1 mile nature trail.

Bayou Segnette State Park offers the best of everything. Just a thirty-minute drive across the Mississippi River from New Orleans, a multitude of recreational opportunities awaits visitors of all ages--boating, fishing, canoeing, picnicking, playgrounds and, of course, swimming in the wave pool, as well as an ecosystem that offers you the chance to spot plants, trees and wildlife from both swamps and marshland.

Both salt and freshwater fishing are available because of the park's unique location. From the boat launch, you may explore many areas not readily accessible by overland routes. Catches of bass, catfish, bream, perch, redfish and trout are common in the area.

On land, picnic areas are available for the whole family, and the playgrounds will delight the children. Group shelters are a perfect spot for large groups to gather, and the park's group camp provides another option for big gatherings.

After you have splashed the day away in Bayou Segnette's popular wave pool or skipped across any one of the adjacent waterways by boat, you will be glad you took the time to sit back and watch nature at play--for the wildlife is abundant and the vegetation worth closer study.
