This State Park is in an excellent location and just a short drive from Interstate 12 in Madisonville, Louisiana. The State Park is just across the river from Old Town Madisonville. There are several nice restaurants, a museum and a snowball stand. I put the snowball stand in this description because people from up north and other areas never herd of snowball stands. If you have never had one then you owe it to yourself to get one. You have about 50 flavors to choose from and prices start as low as $1. I always get the jumbo size which is about $2.50 depending on what you want on it. Click Here for more information on Snowballs.

This is the nicest cypress tree that I have seen here at Fairview Riverside State Park. It is probably over 50 years old. If you are a photographer you will find that there are several other angles that you can capture a picture of this tree. It would make a beautiful picture to turn into black and white and frame it.
