Chemin-A-Haut State Park is a 503-acre (2.04 km2) site located in northern Morehouse Parish, Louisiana. Visitors may access the park from U.S. Highway 425 about 10 miles (16 km) north of Bastrop. Chemin-à-Haut means "High Road" in French. Much of the park is on a high bluff overlooking winding Bayou Bartholomew. Chemin-A-Haut was one of the earliest additions to the Louisiana State Park system.

The Nature Conservancy in Louisiana has recently acquired the 247-acre (1.00 km2) DeBlieux tract, located in a large bend of Bayou Bartholomew, and will eventually transfer the land to the State of Louisiana. The property will be added to Chemin-A-Haut, thus increasing the park's size to 750 acres (3.0 km2).[3] Bayou Bartholomew contains over 115 fish species, one of the highest counts of any stream in North America.

Visitors to Chemin-A-Haut State Park may enjoy Camping, Fishing, Hiking, Picnicking and Wildlife Observation. There is a 8-mile (13 km) Equestrian Trail for Horseback riders. During the hot Summer months, guests may cool off in an on-site swimming pool.
