Night Sky

Claire Floyd

The area surrounding the park and nearby Kisatchie National Forest are excellent places to view unpolluted night skys.


Tree lovers can come to the park and enjoy a variety of pecan, magnolia, crape myrtle, and our majestic live oaks. The park sits along migratory migratory bird routes and is also a popular destination for birders. In recent years the park has also become a popular jumping off point for cyclist who ride through the sceneic Cane River National Heritage Area.
