Lake Fausse Pointe State Park is located about 18 miles east of St. Martinville, La. The 6,000-acre park is adorned with beautiful mature cypress trees and was once home to the Chitimacha Indians. The recent arctic blast to hit Louisiana covered the park's cypress trees in a layer of ice, creating a South Louisiana Cajun winter wonderland.

Lake Fausee Point State Park has a boat launch for the avid fisherman or weekend family boat ride, playground, splash park, nature trails and more. The park has accommodations for up to 50 RVs along with cabins for on-site lodging as well.

Visitors will see an assortment of wildlife native to South Louisiana. Whitetail-deer and black bears are often seen and of course alligators and snakes.

There are three hiking trails that are shared with bikers. The longest of the three is 3.3 miles.

Adjacent to the Atchafalaya Basin, Lake Fausse Pointe State Park is a must-visit for outdoorsmen of all ages.
