River Recreation and a Scenic Stay at Niblett’s Bluff Park

View All Outdoors

A short, 30-minute drive west of Lake Charles, Niblett’s Bluff Park occupies a shore land along the Sabine River and is maintained by locals living on the property. Featuring a playground, pavilions, camp grounds and rental cabins, the park is home to some animals as well, such as goats, deer, sheep and burros.

Nearly six miles from the interstate, the park sits on the Texas border and doubles as access to the Sabine Wildlife Management Area across the river. With boating and water skiing access, the river is a popular destination. Fishing along the river’s shore or from a boat promises a variety of potential catches, including bass, catfish, crappie, gar and trout.

The park pavilions can accommodate up to 400 guests and, every year, are the site of the area's Spring Festival. Local bands provide live entertainment for the two-day event, which includes craft displays, a rock wall, laser tag and other children’s games.
