General Description: Poverty Point Reservoir State Park is on the shore of a 2,700 acre lake that offers visitors a variety of water sports activities and a scenic backdrop for migratory fowl during the spring and fall.  Due to the proximity of the many wildlife refuges in the area, numerous sightings of black bear have been made in the park.  The campgrounds consist of 53 campsites, 45 with full hookups.  Other amenities include playground, lake swimming, and marina.
