Closures & Construction

Trail reconstruction, air conditioning repairs, storm damage...it takes a lot of work to keep a national park in good repair.

Follow the link for operating hours and days for all park sites.

On Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 23) ALL park sites will be closed. Exceptions:

Barataria Preserve in Marrero (follow this link for preserve trail maps)

  • A section of the Plantation Trail and the final few hundred feet of the Ring Levee Trail are closed for repairs.
  • Although canoeing and kayaking have been a favorite Barataria Preserve activity in the past, most waterways are currently impassable due to several years of heavy growth by aquatic vegetation. The National Park Service is working to secure funding for longterm waterways management. At this time, do not plan to canoe or kayak in the preserve;information will be posted on the Barataria Preserve web page if the situation changes.
