The best camping near Sam Houston Jones State Park guide

Overview

About

Sam Houston Jones State Park is a southwestern Louisiana treasure chest of deer, otters, and foxes, bald cypress forests, and lagoons. You can’t go wrong birdwatching, boating, or exploring here! Hike a few trails, like the Old Stagecoach Road which runs along the Calcasieu River. Or, get out on the water via one of the many nearby waterways. Take a scenic drive or simply chill out under the cool, shady trees at your campsite. While this park is near the city of Lake Charles, these green 1,087 acres will feel like a massive backyard sure to bring out your inner explorer.

When to go

The best time to visit Sam Houston Jones State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer months can be quite warm, making early morning or late afternoon the ideal times for outdoor activities. Winters are generally mild, but check for any seasonal closures before planning your trip.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the season, as Louisiana's climate can vary.
  • Be aware of the local wildlife and follow park guidelines to ensure a safe encounter.
  • Some areas of the park may be inaccessible due to seasonal flooding, so verify open trails and facilities before your visit.
  • Bring insect repellent and sunscreen to protect against the elements during your exploration.
  • Remember to carry out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it for future visitors.
