Grand Isle State Park
Grand Isle State Park information
The end of the road down bayou way is 70 miles southeast of Houma, in Grand Isle . The windswept barrier-island town took quite the beating from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, but many businesses have reopened and the Old Fishing Bridge has been restored. In addition to seafood shacks and fishing camps, boat charters are the big business here. Watching the waves lap ashore at Grand Isle State Park , it’s easy to imagine the power of mother nature. Rent canoes ($20 per day) to explore the inland canals or just watch as the brown pelicans, the state bird, dive for fish offshore.
