Enjoy hiking, fishing and bird watching at Lake Claiborne State Park.

For more than forty years, Lake Claiborne State Park has provided a beautiful place to enjoy the great outdoors of northern Louisiana. And now is a great time to visit with freshened-up cabins!

The two-bedroom cabins, nestled among the pine trees, recently received a facelift inside and out. Fresh coats of paint were given to the exteriors and interiors with all of the cabinets inside treated to a new finish and trim. The kitchens have new granite countertops and the bathrooms have new sinks. The already-popular cabins are sure to be in great demand this spring and summer as visitors check out the improvements.

A 6,400-acre reservoir serves as the centerpiece for fishing and water sports at Lake Claiborne State Park. The park’s sandy beach is popular with swimmers of ages, as it is situated on an inlet of the lake and protected from boats and water skiers. For fishermen, the freshwater lake is regularly stocked with a variety of sporting fish, including bass, bluegill sunfish, catfish, black crappie, bream, and white perch.

Over the years, activities and amenities have been added to the original campground. Nearly three years ago, the Lake Claiborne Disc Golf Course was established at the park. The 18-basket Whitetail course winds its way through the camping and cabin areas. The course is set in an all-hilly terrain with 3 levels of difficulty.

The woods of Lake Claiborne State Park are also home to a wide variety of wildlife. Thirteen miles of nature trails and a scenic overlook will allow you to appreciate the beauty of the area at your own pace. The park is also along the migratory path, so birders can see herons, egrets, woodpeckers and more making their seasonal flights.

Lake Claiborne State Park is a 620-acre park located in North Louisiana, seven miles southeast of Homer on LA 146. The park offers 87 RV campsites, 20 tent sites and 10 vacation cabins for overnight guests, while both overnight guests and day-use visitors can enjoy the fishing pier, boat ramp, boat rentals, a sandy beach swimming area, nature trails and an overlook.
