Lake D’Arbonne is a reservoir located near and around the town of Farmerville in Union Parish in north Louisiana. Isolated in a rural area, it is a popular man-made fishing area that has a combined estimated area of 15,250 acres (62 km2). The lake was first conceived in 1957 and was formed in 1963. Lake D’Arbonne State Park, a state maintained camping and recreation area, lies on the lake.
State Senator B. R. Patton, State Representative T. T. Fields, landowner Alvin Green (born 1924) of Bernice, and Fred Preaus, a Farmerville automobile and timber businessman who served as state highway director in the administration of Governor Robert F. Kennon, worked to make the lake a reality.
