022At Burn's Point, cypress and oak trees shade the quiet waters of East Cote Blanche Bay. Pelicans wheel and swoop over oil platforms and shrimp boats. Novice paddlers can fish around the park, or cross the bay to Cypremort Point State Park. Burn's Point Paddling Trail begins at the Baldwin Boat Launch on Bayou Teche, turns onto the Charenton Drainage and Navigation Canal and continues into the open waters of West Cote Blanche Bay. The trail ends at the landing in Cypremort Point State Park or Burn's Point Boat Launch.

The coast is low lying marsh except at Cote Blanche Island. Cote Blanche Island is one of the highest points of land along this coast, and it is also the location of one of Louisiana's coastal salt mines. This area offers an abundance of fishing opportunitites and myriad shore birds to view while paddling.

Six cabins are available to rent at Cypremort Point State Park: reservations are recommended and no tent camping is allowed. Camping at Burn's Point is first come, first served: no reservations.
