Lake Fausse Pointe State Park

Search St Martinville Louisiana

Lake Fausse Pointe State Park lies poised in the edge of one of the great natural wonders of North America, the Atchafalaya Basin. A network of waterways and islands introduces you to this 6,127-acre oasis. Situated in the heart of a thriving French culture, the park was once a part of the basin, and the surrounding area was home to the Chitimacha Indians.

The park is a favorite with canoeists and anglers, as well as cyclists enjoying an outing down the leeve road or on the park's road system. This family-oriented facility offers 50 improved campsites, a primitive group campsite, 10 cabins, eight "Acadian-style" waterfront cabins with fishing piers, a country store and boat dock.
