Cypress Black Bayou, in Benton, Louisiana, is a full service recreation area that includes swimming, camping, cabins for rent, fishing piers, a zoo, and much more. COME VISIT US!
Anyone using Cypress or Black Bayou lakes must have a 2017 boat sticker. You may purchase these at the front gate office. Starting March 1, 2017 all violators will be immobilized with a boot until payment is received.
We are continuing to monitor the salvinia on both lakes with the water mower and contract spraying. We would like to thank you for your patience in this matter.
We have put a boom structure in place on the North end of Black Bayou to help keep the salvinia contained for concentrated spraying. Please lift your motor when crossing.
