Saint Bernard State Park

501 Saint Bernard Park Way, Poydras, Louisiana 70085 USA

  • Pet Friendly

“the ideal spot for visitors seeking a family atmosphere”

St. Bernard State Park is the ideal spot for visitors who are seeking a family atmosphere and natural experience, as well as for campers who don't want to or cannot stray far from civilization. Many campers consider combining a camping vacation with a touring vacation of the New Orleans area. The Chalmette National Historic Park, Jackson Barracks, and other historic sites and plantation homes are also nearby. A local family business donated the land for St. Bernard State Park to Louisiana in 1971. Today, St. Bernard State Park provides a much-needed recreation area, as well as relaxing and enjoyable surroundings for anyone wishing to experience a portion of Louisiana's natural beauty. The St. Bernard State Park was created in 1971 when the land that the park sits on was donated to the state by a local family.[1] The park operated for 34 years as the only state park in the St. Bernard/Plaquemines Parish area until it was severely damaged by storm surge from the levee failures during Hurricane Katrina. The park (along with Fort Pike State Historic Site) remained closed for more than a year due to the severe damage.

Rangers were great and site was paved, level and nice. The bathrooms were nice and clean with good hot water. Laundy on site, and it was only $1 per load. 25 min. from New Orleans and an easy drive.

Beautiful campgrounds very close to New Orleans. Bathrooms were old but clean. Free wifi throughout the park. Bring bug spray, lots of mosquitos.

St. Bernard State Park is the ideal spot for visitors who are seeking a family atmosphere and natural experience, as well as for campers who don't want to or cannot stray far from civilization. Many campers consider combining a camping vacation with a touring vacation of the New Orleans area. The Chalmette National Historic Park, Jackson Barracks, and other historic sites and plantation homes are also nearby. Located right along the Mississippi River, the park contains a network of man-made lagoons, which provides a peaceful, natural setting for relaxation. Woodlands meet wetlands in St. Bernard and the park's nature trail is the perfect way to introduce children to the joy of discovery in nature.Picnic tables, barbeque grills, restrooms, and a large, covered pavilion complete with a grill are ideal for a family outing. The swimming pool and bathhouse will delight youngsters and their families all summer long. Visitors may also launch their boats one-tenth of a mile from the park's entrance in the Caernarvon waterway and experience some great fresh and saltwater fishing.

My friends and I visited St. Bernard State Park over spring break and it was great! It was so easy to get to and the park rangers were so nice. Also it was awesome how close it was to NOLA. Definitely would go there again!
