Poverty Point Reservoir State Park

Monroe - Ruston Area
Type of Route

The centerpiece of Poverty Point Reservoir State Park is its lake, as silver as the skyline. While nothing compares to watching a sunset on the reservoir, activities like paddling, boating and fishing make a close second. Find a boat launch, concession area and fishing pier at The North Marina Complex. If winds are high, stay near the shoreline’s serene coves and inlets.

The Mississippi Flyway and Poverty Point intersect, so expect to see migratory birds in the spring and fall. Depending on the season, visitors can watch cormorants, ducks, geese and pelicans. Anglers will enjoy fishing for bass, crappie, blue gill and catfish year-round.
