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!
The 39th Sportspectrum River Cities Triathlon will be held here the weekend of August 3 and 4. We will have the beach area closed down for setup starting Friday, August 2 and will not re-open the beach until Monday, August 5, 2019. Thank you!
We want to remind everyone that the lake level is still higher than normal and there is still some floating debris. Please use caution! Also, some of the wildlife around the lakes have been flushed out of their natural habitats due to the high water. We ask that you leave them alone and DO NOT cause any danger to them. If you need to, you can call Wildlife and Fisheries in Minden at 318 371-3050 to report them. 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.
