We went for a nice walk through the swamp area. It was really nice with a wooden walkway with rails. We did not see any alligators but did see lots of birds.

On Saturday, July 11, 2015, I went on a boat tour in Lake Martin. What a beautiful sight. Allen was my boat captain. He is from the area and was very interesting.

We got cut short by lightening and even so it was a great value. It was a calm ride good for infants to elderly, with good clean humor, and accurate ecological information of interest.

Loved scenery, but boat tours of 2 hours is too long in sweltering South LA weather. Spied alligators and many roosting birds.

My son and I stopped by for a swamp tour but did not have time. Instead took this place in. Just walking the shoreline, saw several small gators. It was everything you would expect. Spend some time there; you'll enjoy the time spent.

Alligators, nutria, and in the spring, thousands of nesting roseate spoonbills, egrets and other wonderful birds. Trails around the lake, lake tours available by boat by locals. Bring a lunch, sit around. Free and fun for all. Locals go too just to check out what's happening with the birds.

Our family enjoyed our outdoor adventure. Saw baby alligators and a few adult alligators taking in some sun. The hiking trail was safe and secure. We saw lots of abundant wildlife. Amazing views of the swamps.

I solo kayaked here at sunset with a rental kayak from Breaux Bridge - one of my most cherished vacation experiences. The spanish moss from the cypress trees, the turtles, the smells and sounds make this a little Louisiana jewel off the beaten path.

Absolutely love Lake Martin, especially in springtime. Hundreds of egrets, herons and roseate spoonbills are nesting in the rookery. Wonderful photo ops both on the road and by taking a boat tour.

A must do when you're around Breaux Bridge or La Fayette! We did a Kayak tour (Champagne Tours) with our personal guide Don. Beautiful area.
