Bayou Segnette State Park is located in Westwego, Jefferson Parish, southwest of New Orleans on the west bank of the Mississippi River. With boat ramps, a beautiful marsh environment, camping, cabins, a group camp, swimming, fishing and playgrounds, this park offers unforgettable outdoor experiences.
The biggest draw to this state park is the price and it's so close to New Orleans. It's easy to drive in or take the ferry.
We stayed overnight here in March 2018 on our way out west and saw the entrance quite by accident. We pulled in and they were able to give us a site. It was a great overnite stop.
DIRECTIONS FROM I-10:
There are three primary routes to reach the park.
(1) From I-10, take I-310 south. Cross the Luling Bridge over the Mississippi River, and exit US 90 east (toward New Orleans). US 90 becomes the Westbank Expressway. As you enter Westwego, look to your right.
(2) From I-10 (in Metairie), take the Clearview exit south. Follow Clearview all the way to the Huey P.Long Bridge and cross the Mississippi River. Travel to the Westbank Expressway (Business US 90). Again, look to your right off the expressway.
(3)From New Orleans, follow I-10 to cross the Greater New Orleans Bridge. Take the first exit onto Business US 90, which is the Westbank Expressway. Follow the expressway for several miles; the park will be on your left.
