Yes, it is a state park, but those who reside in Moss Bluff consider this beautiful park as an extension of their neighborhoods.

Like the good neighbors Moss Bluff residents are, they happily share the park with year-round visitors and campers from across the globe.

Deer at Sam Houston State Park in Moss Bluff, LA

 

 Be sure to reserve time for relaxing when you go to visit Sam Houston Jones State Park, in Moss Bluff, Louisiana.  This wonderful little jewel along the Calcasieu River provides biking and hiking trails for those who wish to explore great distances.  When it is time to relax you can return to your cabin, or bring your own RV since they do provide parking facilities, and enjoy a good nights rest.

If a day trip is more to your plans, there are plenty of picnic areas and playground equipment.  There is something for everyone to enjoy and the grounds are manned by State Park Rangers who are familiar with our area and conduct classes periodically on various aspects of our local natural habitats. 

Our last overnight RV visit to the park featured a night trip led by the Rangers to investigate the night life of the park with flash lights.  This was a HUGE hit with the Kids.  As you can see, the deer, ducks, etc. are nice enough to share their territory with those who are pleasant to them.

Yes, we live less than 20 miles away, but take the RV there with our Grand Children.  Once you are in the park, you feel as though you are miles away from home and the smores and hot dogs over the campfire are just as good as if we had spent $hundreds traveling a long distance.

Put this on your must see list when you visit Southwest Louisiana. For more information visit these these websites:

Those are some great pictures, I think deer are the most elegant of animals.

Hi Cindy,

Deer are just wonderful animals.  Since they live in a protected area, they have no fear of people and will allow you to photograph them at will.  They seem to pose for you.  Matter of fact all of the animals seem to cooperate in this manner.  Hope you have the opportunity to visit us some day.  We try to hit a different part of the US each summer.  We haven't made it to Inianapolis yet, but we may try it before long.

Hi Chuck,

We would love to have you visit us in Louisiana.  Were you from here originally or just visited at some point in the past?  It is a great place with something for everyone.  Come on over when you get a chance.  We love to visit the Phoenix area.

What a lovely place! It looks like a fun place to kick back and relax by the fireplace with a good book!

Hi Denise,

This State Park is truly a natural escape in our own back yard.  Once you drive through the gates you might as well be hundreds of miles away as far as the feel.  It is so very peaceful and relaxing.  Great escape.
