Description
The 2,700-acre, man-made lake that is the center piece for Poverty Point Reservoir State Park offers visitors an outlet for a variety of watersport activities and a scenic backdrop for waterfowl migration each spring and fall.

The fish and wildlife species inhabiting or migrating through the reservoir are numerous. Anglers can fish the lake year round for largemouth bass, black crappie, blue gill and channel catfish. The region falls within the Mississippi Flyway for many winged species. Depending on the season, visitors will see cormorants, ducks, geese and pelicans.

A nice getaway

Poverty Point is a nice enough park, quiet on weekdays but can get crowded on weekends. The camp hosts try their best to keep it a clean place. The sites are big, all with water and electric, but only a few with sewer. The staff are friendly. Lots of trails for walking and hiking. Really nice for short getaways.

We stayed here in a 5th Wheel.

Black Bear Golf Course (253 Black Bear Drive, Delhi) - A “must play” on Louisiana’s Audubon Golf Trail, this course is located near Bayou Macon and offers various levels of challenge to golfers. After the 18th hole, enjoy a meal and refreshing beverage at the Waterfront Grill.
