Located between Cameron and Grand Isle, Cypremort Point State Park is one of the few locations in the proximity of the Gulf of Mexico to be reached by driving a car. There is half a mile of the human-made beach, which provides visitors with an excellent area to relax, enjoy the water, and perhaps even have a picnic with friends and family. There are also opportunities for sailing, crabbing, fishing, windsurfing, water skiing, and sailing.
The state park has a boat launch near the entrance and is only a few miles away from the Gulf of Mexico. Fishers have the opportunity to venture out to fish in the Bay or Gulf. Redfish and flounder are very common in the area, and those interested in fishing from the shore may use the 100-foot fishing pier on the Bay. Visitors who stay overnight can also have access to the adjacent fishing cleaning station and boat docks.
Aside from the excellent swimming and fishing facilities, the 185-acre park has a unique attraction for people who love nature. The site is in the heart of a marsh and has an abundance of wildlife. Some of the animals you will see are the muskrat, nutria, alligator, and a good number of bird species which can only be found in the state.
Black bears, rabbits, deer, opossums, and red foxes also make their home in the area, so visitors are always encouraged to be conscious of their surroundings. The best time to visit is from late summer to fall. What you want is when the river stage is below ten feet.
Pet parents will be delighted to know that pooches are permitted throughout the park, but they are not allowed in public swim areas, cabins, walkways or buildings. Cabins have limited and simple kitchen utensils, as well as linens, and towels. Furthermore, there is no camping facility in the park.
