Loblolly pines and stately magnolia trees, rolling hills, spectacular wildlife, and seasonal flowers await visitors at Percy Quin State Park. One of the original state parks cleared and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Percy Quin is today a delightful blend of the old and new. Located just two and a half hours from New Orleans. The 1700 acre Percy Quin State Park, which includes a 490 acre lake and a championship golf course, provides a colorful natural backdrop for a variety of outdoor activities.
