Cabins at St. Tammany state park reopening, after repairs

Cabins at St. Tammany state park reopening, after repairs

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Rental cabins at one of Louisiana's busiest state parks are reopening this month, nearly three years after they were shuttered by Hurricane Isaac.

Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne announced Wednesday that the cabins at Fontainebleau State Park in St. Tammany Parish will be open for reservations on Aug. 17.

The 12 cabins, which had been a profit-generator for the state parks system, have been closed since 2012 because of the damage wrought by Hurricane Isaac. Dardenne's office says renovations have cost $1.5 million.

The cabins are built on piers seven feet above Lake Pontchartrain. Other amenities at the park include RV campsites, tent sites, two group camps and a lodge, along with a beach, fishing pier, sailboat launch and nature trails.
