Wildlife

Paddle one of Louisiana's finest swamps and wildlife preserves and see some native wildlife, including herons, egrets, ibis, bullfrogs, snakes, alligators, and even some bald eagles. Catch a sunset disappear behind cypress and water tupelo trees while paddling for an unforgettable view.

There's a boat launch for small boats, canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards. Plenty of fishing from the banks or off a boat. Go at dusk for an unforgettable sunset from the water. If you paddle enough you may even be able to find a rope swing, or a rope ladder that offers an amazing aerial view.

Beautiful Lake Martin

Lake Martin is a perfect swamp for a quiet paddle in the bayous. I went in with a French immersion group associated with the Atchafalaya National Heritage Aera and they were great guides. The lake is very quiet and if you keep your eyes open, you will most likely see many birds and alligator floating around. Lake Martin is a must when daytripping around Lafayette.

Beautiful, Family Friendly Paddle

Leave the motors behind and paddle this amazing lake in peace and quiet. The beautiful and ancient cypress trees and all the birds and animals make the paddle worth the trip!
