LA state parks changing hours

Louisiana state parks and historic sites will be operating under a new schedule.

Effective immediately, the new schedule will allow entrance stations at parks with boat launches to operate from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., while parks without entrance stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

During the off season months of October through March the sites will open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Gates do open at 6 a.m. at parks with boat launches and 7 a.m. for those without. Both types of parks close at 9 p.m.

The changes to the schedule will allow the parks to maximize services while working within available resources says Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne.

The complete schedule can be found at www.LaStateParks.com
