Louisiana 2024 Solar Eclipse Resources

For those looking for Louisiana 2024 Solar Eclipse Resources, here is a great start and guide. We have information about state park information to provide assistance and a centralized place for this information.

The majority of Louisiana will be covered in some fashion due to its proximity to the totality and path to the eclipse, as the total duration for the entire state will be at least 2 hours and 23 minutes of at least 77% coverage. Although it won’t experience 100% totality, those in Louisiana will have a great 2024 Solar Eclipse view!

State Parks

There are 21 total state parks in Louisiana, with all 21 of them being in the path of the eclipse. There is a day use fee of $3 per person. We recommend going to each place and finding where in the sky the eclipse will be visible as we cannot guarantee that the eclipse will be visible at each and every park from every location.

The time shown are in CDT, central time, with reservations being able to be made from the LA State Parks website.
