GRAND ISLE STATE PARK PHOTOS
Grand Isle State Park serves as a breakwater between the Gulf and the network of inland channels that connect to the bayou tributaries of the Mississippi River. It is located just off the coast of Louisiana. Grand Isle is a beach ridge created by the action of the waves of the Gulf. It is also the launching point for excellent deep-sea salt-water fishing adventures.
Every July, a Tarpon Rodeo attracts thousands of fishing competitors to these prolific waters offshore. Speckled trout can be caught by surf fishers year round, especially in the spring and summer. Redfish also venture into the range of the surf fishermen in the fall and winter.
The warm Gulf waters are also enjoyed by swimmers most of the year, and Grand Isle State Park offers an excellent location for splashing in the surf. Birding enthusiasts will also delight in the beauty of the lagoons and the Gulf shore. This unique environment attracts numerous species of birds and other wildlife. Be sure to bring your binoculars or a camera to enjoy the opportunity to view nature unspoiled.
So take a trip to the edge of Louisiana. Fishing, birding, swimming and crabbing, as well as, hiking, sunning, boating, or just relaxing–Grand Isle State Park gives you the best of Grand Isle.
