Lake D’Arbonne State park in northern Louisiana attracts visitors with its forested hilly landscape and 15,000 acre lake. And long fishing piers put anglers and photographers beyond the lake’s wooded shoreline.
The state park has a boat launch for fishermen who want to explore Lake D’Arbonne. But the parks five fishing piers give everyone a chance to drop a line and try to hook a bass, crappie, perch or catfish.
The long piers get you far beyond the treeline and provide great views at sunrise or sunset. And the park’s relatively dark sky creates an opportunity for star gazing.
