Chemin-a-Haut State Park Cabin on the water
Chemin-a-Haut State Park cabin on the water for rent.

You don’t have to be best friends with Mother Nature to enjoy a little rest and relaxation alongside the picturesque lakes, hardwood forests and cypress-filled bayous of Louisiana's State Parks.

18 of the 22 Louisiana State Parks offer comfortable cabins.

Imagine waking up in Bogue Chitto State Park in a cabin overlooking the bluffs or rocking on a private porch with views of Lake Pontchartrain in Fontainebleau State Park. Picture yourself enjoying the quiet seclusion of a bayou-side cabin at Chemin-A-Haut State Park or strolling through the gardens and rock formations at Hodges Gardens State Park before retiring to your rustic log cabin retreat. 

These homes away home are ideal for family or group gatherings, sleeping between six to eight people, and some parks offer lodges for even larger groups. Louisiana State Park cabins are stocked with basic cookware, utensils, tableware, towels and linens. 

Amenities vary across the parks, but some perks include satellite television, Wi-Fi and fireplaces ideal for curling up in front of on cool fall nights. There’s no roughing it here!

But the best part of these cabin getaways is the wallet-friendly rates, which typically range from $120 to $150 per night. And you can check availability and book your stay directly from the individual Louisiana State Park websites.

With boating and fishing opportunities, hiking and biking trails, and special events such as hayrides and history tours scheduled throughout the year, there’s plenty to do without ever having to leave the park.
