Located around 61 kilometres away from New Orleans, the Fort Pike State Historic Site was constructed in the early 19th century and was named after soldier General Zebulon Montgomery Pike. Surround by water to the east, the fort was designed for defence purposes from both land and sea and still stands strong to this day.

Forts Pike was one of six new masonry forts built in coastal Louisiana to protect against the British invasion. Today, the fort is etched in the war-history of Louisiana.

Take a walk through the beautiful fort and see the views of Lake Catherine from here.

  • Visited this Fort in 2012. We had the place almost for ourselves, Beautiful fort, with great views. There was also a very friendly staff member (I can't remember his name, lovely man), who gave us a beautiful book about the fort, as we came all the way from Europe:-)

  • Closed and all there was access to was a boat ramp.

  • Good picnic place and see a historic fort.

  • Google's info is wrong. It appears that the park is closed to the public permanently. You can only make appointments . Please call the number before venturing out there

  • We we married on top of Fort Pike, on May 5th, 2001!!! Absolutely beautiful day!!
