Caldwell Parish ( ) is a parish located in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The parish seat is Columbia and as of 2000, the population was 10,560. Most Caldwell Parish residents live in the country even beyond the three rural communities in the parish.

The Martin Homeplace Museum north of Columbia is based on a still-standing farmhouse built in 1878. The house has since been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Caldwell Parish is home to the Marengo Suicide Swamp Ride, hosted by the organization Wish-I-Could of Northeast Louisiana.
