“A Natural Wildlife Haven!”

Over 280 species of fish are known to make their home in the waters off the coast of Grand Isle. Brown pelicans--the state bird of Louisiana--dive into the water. Seagulls appear to float on the wind above the shore. Crabs nimbly scamper out of reach of the children chasing them with their nets. This is Grand Isle State Park--a natural haven on the most popular barrier island off the coast of Louisiana. A beach ridge created by the action of the waves of the Gulf, Grand Isle 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 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 venture into the range of the surf fishermen in the fall and winter. The warm Gulf waters are 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, so 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, crabbing, hiking, sunning, boating, or just relaxing--Grand Isle State Park gives you the best of Grand Isle.

Our trip to the beach was great. First we went to the normal beach side of the park, then we went to the camping side. We found that the camping side was much closer to the beach but we also found out that space is limited on the camping side and you're supposed to have a camping spot to temporarily park at the beach access near the campsites.

There were no mosquitos near the beach but the path to the beach was swarming with mosquitos so much so that we had to run on our way back to the car. We used the showers on the boardwalk which helped with the mosquitos and sand.

The water was much warmer than we expected but we're from Alaska so everything is warmer than what we're used to.

I would recommend bringing something for mosquito bites and don't forget an umbrella or something for cover as well as a beach chair.

Overall the trip was great and I would recommend it for anyone looking to enjoy the beach.
