Visitor Center recommended we drive to the east side of lake and view the wildlife nesting in the trees. We didn't have the time but a tour by boat is required if you wan to see wildlife.

We kayaked here...not sure why...there were gators around but I heard they leave you alone unless there's baby gators around. Nice paddle. We took the boat tour where we could look them closer...LOTS of them. Great place. Oh, don't get your dog anywhere near the water. They're like candy for the gators.

My husband and I took a terrific boat tour of Lake Martin with Wendy Thibideaux of Louisiana Swamp Tours. We chose her because her boat only seats 4, so it was a more personal experience. Wendy is a straight-forward, competent boat captain and has lived in the bayou country all her life. She clearly enjoyed sharing her love of the lake with us, and took pains to show us a variety of birds, including swallow-tailed kites, roseate spoonbills, & many egrets. She also showed us, at a sensitive distance, an alligator nest with the vigilant mama gator right next to it. The cypress trees and moss swaying in the breeze were mesmerizing, and the tour was over way too soon. We highly recommend Wendy and her swamp tour - t was a highlight of our trip.

Took a boat ride today with my husband and another couple. Wendy Thibideaux from Louisiana Tours was our guide. She is a lifelong resident of the area and very knowledgeable about flora and wildlife. We had a very relaxing trip, learned a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful lake. We saw many birds and several alligators and turtles. It was well worth the time and would recommend it to anyone...would also be great for kids.

You can drive only partway around this lake, or you can walk all the way around it. Several swamp tours are available. Very scenic and peaceful. The lake is loaded with dozens of duck blinds.
