Chemin-a-Haut State Park

14656 State Park Rd.

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 Native Americans many years ago in their seasonal migrations.

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. In addition to RV and tent camping, overnight guests can also relax in cabins, some located convenient to the day-use area, while more-secluded units are located on the bayou.

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.

A very nice place to come and camp for a family get away. Our camp host was Southern friendly and a joy to talk too. The bathhouse is brand new, warm, and in excellent order. They even have washers and dryers, I just hope idiots don't destroy them. The scenery around this place is a great value for learning. However, for some reason, someone let someone else check into our spot (that we paid for well in advance) and they clearly were NOT us. Also, some full hookup sites would be REALLY nice. The asphalt could use some updating also.

Beautiful park. Nice lake. Has a swimming pool. No hiking tho, mainly for relaxing and cooking out. Three dollars per person to enter for the day.

I've always loved this quaint little state park. Our church held its color run there and afterwards we had our praise team band along with lots of food and worship. The park staff never had s problems with any of our plans, nor did they charge us anything more than $3 per person to get in. Also, their dand never Olympic size swimming pool and children's pool opens on May 26, 2018, well, today.

After a year and a half the WiFi is still not working. The new bathhouse a/c is out the week if 4th July 2018 and the office said they couldn’t do anything because the Baton Rouge office has to send someone out to do repairs. They aren’t helping themselves keeping attendance up. Also, they have a lake to fish in but they do not sell bait, concessions or ice.
