I've been trying to gather info on the well being of LA SP's affected by the hurricanes. Especially Grand Isle SP & their community. Seems like that whole area got hit pretty bad. Is there specific web sites to get this info? The state park site doesn't offer much.
thanks

I couldn't find anything either. Try giving them a call. Anyone at the park would be happy to give you information on the park and community. I think they had some tidal flooding but nothing serious.

I can tell what I have seen...coming from Texas as soon as you cross the Sabine River into Louisiana it looks bad. Lake Charles looks terrible. Small towns north of Lake Charles appear to have had the eye pass over them with max strength eye wall winds. I haven't been to Lafayette or points east. I would assume Lafayette took a bad hit, being on the "dirty" side. But the farther east you go the better things should be.
Call first.
We have talked about Louisiana State Parks for a winter trip and I need to call around as well.

Do believe Grand Isle is closed. google Grand Isle; they will have all info. I follow park on face book and last I saw, they are closed.

I can't find anything recent but 9/6/20 statement, 6 southwest louisiana state parks were heavely damaged and would be closed until further notice the SP's were named.

TxGearhead, We hope to visit that area, Grand Isle, Lake Charles and such in early May.
Hope you have a great & safe trip and keep us posted on the conditions, please.

We camped last week up at the Kisatchie NF (Beaver Dam near Minden) and no signs of storm damage, that area was in good shape.

Lake Charles area was hard hit by two storms so I would not expect parks there to open very soon. Grand Isle and New Orleans area - I would check with the individual park nearer the time of your trip. As for the rest of the state there are no problems.

Best I could tell around Oberlin was the fartherest north for substantial damage. We had a huge pine tree go down in our family cemetery there. Dequincey and Reeves looked bad.
