Message from Park Manager...Beginning in late September, part of the campground will be closed for renovations. Sewer hook-ups are being added to all of the campsites. As of right now, no reservations will be cancelled. The contractors will work around existing reservations and programs, such as Halloween, the cochon-de-lait, etc. If there are reservations on campsites that are being renovated, then we can transfer them to an open campsite. At no time is the entire park closing, which is a question that we have been getting a lot. If customers have any questions, they can call the park at 337-893-3930.

Boy Scout Terrence Decuire has raised the money for his Eagle Scout project and installed the playground. He chose Palmetto Island State Park to be the recipient of a rope climbing playground for older kids. He accepted donations, sold concessions at park events and sold 20 oz insulated Swamp Gear cups to raise money for the project. They came in a variety of colors and were etched with Palmetto Island State Park on them.
The splash pad is open Tuesday thru Sunday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Closed on Mondays for maintenance.
