WELCOME to Chemin-A-Haut State Park
Chemin-A-Haut State Park is situated on a high
bluff overlooking Bayou Bartholomew and is a natural paradise for
lovers of unspoiled beauty. This 503-acre site takes its name from
the French word meaning "high road," which was the route
used by Americans Indians many years ago in their seasonal
Chemin-A-Haut State Park was designed with
children in mind. Two playgrounds in the day-use area are a favorite
spot of the younger patrons as is the wading pool in the swimming
complex. Also, the park's swimming pool is open Memorial Day weekend
through Labor Day, so campers and picnickers can refresh themselves
on hot summer days.
The picnic area includes 35 family sites with
grills and tables, five group sites (for up to 24 people), and three
shelters. A hard-surfaced trail goes through the picnic area and
along the high, scenic banks of Bayou Bartholomew. Rental boats
afford visitors an even closer view.
Big Slough Lake, located near the edge of the
park, offers an opportunity to fish from the shore. Several
varieties of freshwater species can be found there. Take advantage
of the beautiful seclusion of this ideal park site.
