“former place of a Civil War fort”
Niblett's Bluff Park is a Calcasieu Parish Ward 7 park near Vinton, Louisiana, overlooking the scenic Sabine River. Funded by local taxes and run by local citizens, the park seeks to preserve the natural beauty and history of Southwest Louisiana in an environment that is fun for the whole family. The park is open 365 days a year. Caretakers reside on the premises. The park has historical significance: Fort Nibletts, a Civil War fort, once stood where the current park exists.
I called to come and camp late and though there was a sign posted that the gate would be open from 6am-10pm, it was closed at 9pm. I tried hiking in to find a spot and all there was was a massive fenced off area with a barking dog and I didn't see any tents erected in the area. I'm sure this place is lovely, but did not seem safe for a solo traveler. Person I spoke to on the phone was super helpful though. Wish the gate had been open as posted. Rates were super affordable, and I had to backtrack to spend five times more on a dirty hotel room in Orange TX
