Parish Camp Projects


A pair of projects are currently underway at Parish Camp on Lake Bistineau in south Bossier Parish that will significantly upgrade the facility.

Bossier Parish Police Jury workers are in the process of constructing an extension of nearly 110 feet for a pier along the western lake front in order to accommodate docking of more fishing and pleasure boats. That will be followed by construction of a larger launch ramp and a new dock.

At the crest of the camp’s hill, contractors are working on the foundation of what will be a new bathroom facility that will include showers. Both projects have been planned and could be completed by the end of this year, weather permitting.

Next year, plans call for clearing a portion of the recently purchased 12 acres adjacent to the existing park on the east side. A large parking area and RV facilities are scheduled for that area.
