Jimmie Davis State Park

SR No 1209
Chatham, Louisianna 71226

Jimmie Davis State Park is exactly what we had in mind when we came up with the idea for waters-edge-outdoors.com. The perfect campground on the perfect bass lake.

Located right on the shores of Caney Lake, a bass fishing paradise, which is also off the beaten path, though it still gets quite a crowd on weekends and holidays.

Jimmie Davis State Park offers numerous sites right on the shore of Lake Caney. The sites vary in size and shadiness, though most sites are shaded by pines and other species. All the sites offer back in parking with tent pads. Some of the sites are very private as well.

Jimmie Davis State Park also offers two boat ramps, a fishing pier and a swim beach.
