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 a terrible accident on Black Bayou this summer, we are reminding everyone that boating on Cypress or Black Bayou must always be carried out in a COUNTERCLOCKWISE fashion. That is port-side, meaning that the shore is to your right. Also, do not drink alcohol when on either of the lakes and remember that the same laws that apply to drinking and driving apply to drinking and boating. PLEASE use extra caution on Black Bayou, as it is narrow and much smaller.
