Cypress Black Bayou in Benton, LA is a full service recreation area that includes swimming, camping, cabins for rent, fishing piers, a zoo and much more. COME VISIT US!
Due to high water, all of the boat launches have been closed until further notice. Thank you!
Boating on Cypress and Black Bayou must always be carried out in a COUNTERCLOCKWISE fashion. That is port-side, meaning that the shore is to your right. PLEASE use extra caution on Black Bayou because the lake is narrower.
