Come to Chicot State Park and enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature. Go for a hike or bike ride, cast a line in our beautiful lake, or bring the kids to the splash pad and have a picnic!
Jump back in time in our Swamp Pop Museum. Enjoy the great music that was born here in Ville Platte known as “Swamp Pop”. In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, Swamp Pop was the regional music that became popular across the country.
