The only official app of Louisiana State Parks has been upgraded! It now allows you to access the most up-to-date park information, and also now offers info about historic sites around the state. You can check out upcoming events, weather conditions, and safety alert communications, all while enjoying the natural beauty and wildlife in your park of choice. You can also choose a park to visit by location or activity, such as camping or fishing.

New features include:

•New user interface (UI) with a sleek, more photo-centric home screen design.
•Photo galleries on each park description page.
•A new Explore feature to optimize search capabilities, allowing a 4-in-1 search by location, activities, category, and site name, making it easier to find the perfect recreational destination

There are also cool GPS features, a friend finder, and a built in compass. So, there's really no reason that you can't go exploring in one of our 22 beautiful state parks, and enjoy the rich history that Louisiana has to offer outdoors this summer!
