Welcome to Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park

Winter is here and with it comes cooler weather, camping weather. It's a perfect time to visit Rocky Bayou State Park. Now is the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy the natural beauty of the Park and its many recreational opportunities such as boating, biking, camping, hiking and picnicking. Rocky Bayou State Park has something for everyone. Rent a canoe or kayak and explore the bayou or take a hike along one of the three nature trails. Need a good workout, try out our fitness trail or simply have a picnic along the shoreline that provides visitors a scenic view of the bayou.

Camping is always serene at Rocky Bayou. Bring the family out for an overnight trip or for a long weekend. Please make your reservations online at or by phone 1-800-326-3521. Reservations can be made up to eleven months in advanced. The campground stays very busy around the holidays so make your reservations early to get that perfect site.
