Lake Claiborne in Claiborne Parish (near Homer in Northwest Louisiana) was
formed by damming Bayou D'Arbonne in the mid 1960s. A state park on the
southern shore of the 5,915-acre lake opened in 1974. The lake was quite low
when we visited in December of 2011, although I'm not certain whether that was
because of the recent drought or an intentional lowering to facilitate
construction on a bridge on LA 146.
