Welcome to Tentrr at Louisiana’s Lake D’Arbonne State Park

Lake D’Arbonne is a fishing and camping haven complete with over 15,250 acres of water to boat in and catch fish, such as bass, crappie, and catfish. This Louisiana State Park is right beside Farmerville and roughly a 45-minute drive from Ruston and Monroe. From Shreveport, it’s around an hour and a half of driving.

History of Lake D’Arbonne State Park

The lake is a reservoir that was formed in 1957 but only took shape after the completion of its dam in 1963. Over time, the lake became a tourist attraction and a renowned fishing spot. It is known nationwide as a prime spot for bass fishing along the Louisiana bass trail.

What to do at Lake D’Arbonne State Park:

Whatever you’re interested in, when camping at Lake D’Arbonne there’s something for you. Obviously, there’s water activities at the lake, including some of the best fishing in Louisiana’s lakes (some of the state’s records have been found in D’Arbonne’s waters). In fact, the lake is one of only eight lakes to be designated as prime bass fishing along the Louisiana Bass Trail. And of course there’s always swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. Or hop on something with a little more power and you can be out on the lake water-skiing (or jet skiing). With such a big lake it’s easy for fishing and water sports to coexist without bothering each other.

Want to stay on land but still flex those athletic muscles? There’s an 18-hole disc golfing course, and tennis courts to keep you on your toes. And the rolling hills and canyons make for some great biking opportunities. And if you just want to kick back while camping and relax with a good book, stay in one of our gorgeous tent cabins and while away the hours smelling the great scent of fresh air and green trees.
