Situated on a peninsula on Caney Lake, Jimmy H. Davis State Park is a dog-friendly facility which warmly welcomes all canines to join their owners on a visit to their grounds. In accordance with Louisiana state law, all dogs must remain on a lead at all times and are not permitted access to public buildings or beach areas.

Jimmy H. Davis State Park was originally named Caney Creek Lake State Park to commemorate the creek which was dammed in 1986 to create the current lake which graces the premises. The park was later renamed in homage to the beloved two-term state governor Mr. Jimmy H. Davis.
