In recognition of Independence Day, Louisiana State Parks are offering special discounts to all former and current military members along with first responders. These special discounts, effective through the end of 2019, will provide for a 15% discount off rentals of campsites, cabins, lodges, group camps, conference centers, and pavilions at Louisiana State Parks properties./Flickr

As we get set to celebrate our nation’s independence, we wanted another way to show our gratitude and honor our military, past and present, and our first responders for the hard work they do protecting our freedoms and our lives daily. They are the true heroes who continue to selflessly serve our nation and communities to ensure we can celebrate our independence every year,” said Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser.

We caught up with Nungesser to talk about our parks and the improvements that have been made.

For active duty military, veterans, retirees, National Guard and reservists, discount can be applied for every day of the week. The discount code to enter when booking a reservation online is MILITARY.

For local, state, and federal governmental public safety, fire, law enforcement, and emergency response personnel, discount can be applied to stays of Monday nights through Thursday nights. The discount code to enter when booking a reservation online is BADGE.

The discounts are valid using the Louisiana State Parks online reservations system at www.ReserveLaStateParks.com and cannot be used with other discounts. Proper identification will be required at check-in.
