The woods of Lake Claiborne provide great biking and hiking opportunities. The park is home to a wide variety of wildlife, and nature tours are available regularly. The Whispering Pines Bike Trail offers a good workout through the hills and ravines surrounding the lake.

Beyond biking, you can also swim, fish or camp overnight at the park. At full reservoir level, the lake has a surface area of 6,400 acres. A sandy beach situated on an inlet of the lake is protected from boats and water skiers.

While you’re in Ruston, honor those who serve at the North Louisiana Military Museum, or kick back with a cold beer and a hot slice of pizza at Utility Brewing Co.
