Basic Info about the Park

The Lake D'Arbonne State Park is 655 acres on the western edge of Lake D'Arbonne.

The D’Arbonne State Park is one of the best parks to watch birds of prey and woodpeckers. You’ll find ospreys,  owls, red-bellied woodpeckers, and red-headed woodpeckers here yearround. You’ll find sharp-shinned hawks, flickers, and sapsuckers in this park as the weather starts to cool down.

On top of raptors and woodpeckers, you’ll find all kinds of water birds here: herons, egrets, cormorants, gulls, ducks, coots, and grebes. You’ll find snakes, turtles, and various bugs here, too.

Osprey are the largest hawks in North Louisiana, and these birds are fun to watch. You’ll most likely find them zooming to and from water as they fish for food.
