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.

I visit the park often and it is always a pleasure. The park has several different habitats. It is very clean and the restrooms are immaculate and even air- conditioned! 80+ species of birds.

Really great park with lots to do. I especially like the way each part of the park is identified in google maps for easy movement thru the campgrounds. With this large a park, it's a very nice thing to use.

It was a really good park. Lots to do there. Hiking trails that are well maintained. River that you can hike along in some spots. There is a canoe & kayak rental there too. There's a spray park & water slide there too. It is all river water though. It's brown water. Was pretty disappointed with the availablity of their primitive camping sites. It appears that they only have 2 spaces total. I may be wrong but we checked it out thoroughly because we wanted to camp there. Seems very odd indeed given the fact that the park is something over 10,000 acres of land. Anyway, we had a nice day hiking. We will go back.
