Words cannot describe the beauty of this lake and swamp. We went on a two hour tour with Sean from Cajun Country Swamp Tours and it was the best thing I've ever done on any of the vacations I've been on. The guide was super knowledgeable about the plant and animal life. We want to go back on our way... More

This was my 3rd time on this tour, and won't be my last! Shout out to Gary and his beautiful four legged friend, Lilly. They made this tour, by far, the best yet!

The lake is beautiful and worth a visit. Has amazing wildlife and beautiful flowers. Short path with moss covered trees. Aviary and Rookery nearby. Swamp tours available and the one we went on was amazing

To shake off the heady revelry we experienced whilst attending the outrageously fabulous Five-day Festival International de Louisiane, we took a tour around Lake Martin for a looksie at the frenzied cacophony of herons, egrets and spoonbills before returning to hear the Jam at the Grant Street Dance hall. The swamp tour is excellent, peaceful in its own noisy way... More

My husband and I drove to Lake Martin today. We drove around the levee until we found the Cypress Nature Center. We spoke with the volunteer who was very informative. She talked to us about the birds and other wildlife and gave us an brief history lesson. We enjoyed our short hike and booked a swamp tour. The swamp tour... More

We enjoy riding out to Lake Martin. Your drive is a gravel road along the lake. You might see migrating birds, turtles, alligators, snakes and even kayakers. The wooden walkway is just a few feet above the "swamp" area. We were lucky this last trip to see an alligator just below the walkway and one further away. We then walked... More
