Included with your admission to the state parks.
While the state park commision does not sponsor free days in the park, some individual parks may offer free days and promotions. These days often happen on holidays and during special events times. Even though they do not sponsor the free day events, you can find information on when they’re happening on the state park calendar of events.
As always, recreational opportunities are free with your admission. Things like learning about nature, visiting historic sites and even some classes are free at Louisiana state parks. Anything that is not covered by your admission to the park will be listed here.
