Cypremort Point
State Park

A half-mile stretch of a man-made beach provides a delightful area for relaxing, picnicking and enjoying the water.


Sailing, windsurfing, pleasure boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing--if it's a water-related activity, you can enjoy it at Cypremort Point State Park.

One of Louisiana's finest areas for sailing, the park includes a sand launch designed especially for catamarans, sunfish and windsurfers. As sailboats and windsurfers race across Vermilion Bay, families picnic, sunbathe, play along the beach and enjoy the spectacle. Between Grand Isle and Cameron, Cypremort Point is the only locality near the Gulf of Mexico that can be reached by car.

A half-mile stretch of a man-made beach provides a delightful area for relaxing, picnicking and enjoying the water. It also affords an opportunity for fishing, crabbing, water skiing, windsurfing and, of course, sailing.

Numerous picnic tables, barbeque grills and covered picnic pavilions with nearby restroom facilities and outdoor showers are located throughout the park, adding to Cypremort Point's family appeal.

Bayside Recreation

A boat launch just outside the park's entrance is only a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico, and fishermen can venture out to fish in the Gulf or Bay. Catches of flounder and redfish are not uncommon in the area. For those interested in fishing from the shore, a 100-foot fishing pier is situated on the Bay. In addition to excellent sailing and swimming facilities, the 185-acre park also holds a special attraction for nature enthusiasts.

Located in the heart of a Louisiana marsh, the site contains an abundance of wildlife. The quiet observer may happen upon nutria, muskrat, alligator or a number of bird species native to the state. Deer, black bear, rabbits, opossum and red fox also make their home in this area, so stay aware of your surroundings and you may discover more of the natural charm of Cypremort Point.

Whether you prefer slicing through the water on the wind, venturing out into the Bay or nearby Gulf for great fishing, quietly watching for the wildlife of the Louisiana marsh to make an appearance, or picnicking with the family, you will enjoy a journey to Cypremort Point--where every day is a day at the beach.
