Do not visit this city. The city live on traffic tickets and speed traps. Try bypassing this route by any other means.

We camped in our camper at McGees for two nights and enjoyed side trips to Lafayette for the annual Zydeco Festival and to Breaux Bridge for a walk around this charming little town (was Sunday and pretty much everything was closed). McGee ' s was remote in feel but easy driving distance for our two outings. The campground is undergoing... More

We booked McGee's Landing based on other Trip Advisor reveiws. Everything that I read about the place was true. We had an excellent tour guide (Curtis) who has lived and guided most of his life in the Atchafalya. A family member of mine took the tour several years back and recommended that we do the same. It was very entertaining... More

We rented cabin #2 for one night. We wanted two one-couple cabins but none were available. We were offered this cabin, which was presented to us as one that would accommodate 2 couples. When we reached the cabin. It had one double bed, one single bed and a very small love seat, which was not a sleeper or a futon.... More

After watching far too much television, one of the things that I have wanted to do is go through the swamps on an air-boat. We found Mcgees on a website and booked ourselves onto a tour. I loved every moment of it, it's just a shame that it was too hot for much of the wildlife all though we did... More

While we wanted to take a swamp tour, I was a bit nervous about taking a 3 and 7 year old in a small boat. I knew that air boats were out because of the inability to converse due to the noise. McGee's landing had a large boat and a 1 1/2 hour tour which is plenty long for kids.... More

Had fun with family on our first "swamp tour". Learned about the history of the Atchafalaya Basin, saw a few 'gators and enjoyed some spectacular scenery. Entertaining Skipper & tour guide who had a few good Boudreaux & Thibidoux jokes also. Family business. Polite, friendly & attentive cajun hosts. Restaurant with live band looked fun too. Going to try the... More

This is my second trip with them this month. The first was a manager outing with my fellow Chilis managers. I was so impressed that I took my parents a week later. On both occasions we chose the airboat ride verse the swamp tour option. This is suitable for all age groups and I was suprised how much I enjoyed... More

We had a wonderful time touring the swamps with our guide (and guest guide). We had to book a private tour since no one else was going out on the late afternoon air-boat tour, but it was wonderful and well worth the additional investment to have the boat to ourselves. Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful, pointing out wildlife that... More

We've taken lots of better "swamp tours." I don't think our guide, who never introduced himself, was from the area ..... he could drive a boat, but didn't know much about the swamps or local culture and history. Maybe it was Mr. Robin's day off since others seemed to like him. He did slow down and let the guys take... More
