The Jimmie Davis State Park is a state park and recreation area in Chatham, Louisiana. It was originally known as the Caney Creek Lake State Park upon creation in 1996 and renamed seven years later.
The Jimmie Davis State Park takes its name after Jimmie Davis, a former Governor of Louisiana. He was also a popular country/western singer and movie star during the 1940s and 50s. He was a native of the neighboring town of Quitman.
Visitors of the Jimmie Davis State Park can enjoy a lot of things while at the park. For one, fishing is all the rage at the site, being home to several records. As of 2010, the largest bass caught in Louisiana was taken from the site, as the Caney Creek Lake is home to such massive fishes.
