Bogue Chitto State Park

Bogue Chitto State Park, visitors will experience a diversity of natural habitats on one of the most dynamic and scenic river systems in Louisiana. The 1,786-acre site includes small streams, cypress tupelo swamps, a hardwood forest, upland forests and a rolling landscape.

Overnight visitors will find accommodations from tent camping to RV camping to cabins overlooking the bluffs. For larger groups and family reunions, the park offers a group camp and a conference room.

Frickes Cave, which -- despite its name -- resembles more of a gorge, possesses delicate sandstone spires created when water erodes the surface underneath pebbles. The pebbles remain perched atop the spires, while over time water splashes on the sandstone surface, forming the two-foot tall fingers of sandstone that shoot up from the now-lowered surface. Boardwalks have been built, so that visitors can admire the sandstone creations from afar, as the formations are too delicate to allow visitors to walk amongst them.

Very family friendly. We love the splash pad area, it's a good size and well maintained. Easy for parents to keep an eye on their children and feel safe.

I've been a loyal tuber since I was 13 months old. Our family loves this park and we will be back this week. Great staff and awesome stories/memories to carry on to generations.

Cabins are decent but not much to do. Splash park is okay, not enough entertainment for small children. Nice hiking trails though.

We had a great time at the state park. We stayed in the bottomland rv area right on the water. It was a pond with a small alligator family, so it was not good for swimming but it was still relaxing. Bugs were not as bad as we expected. The river rafting was great, but be safe! We paid about $60 to rent 4 tubes for a 3 mile river ride. It's a lot of fun, but there are a TON of trees in the river. Some can't be seen, so if you try to swim with the current you could get hurt pretty badly. Just knowing that peace of information should be enough to keep you safe if you are cautious. ****Also, bring water shoes! The river is fun but it has a rocky bottom that is not easy on the feet!
