Do not miss! It a natural place that you will no where else. Swamp and lake water mix with alligators, turtles and birds. The various scenery are magic.

Bob, our guide, was very knowledgeable and compared to their competitor, I'm sure we chose the right tour company (there are only two at Martin Lake... ours was $20/pp for two hours. Theirs was $25 for... More

Did the swamp tour with Champagne tours. Mason was our guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly, and we were very fortunate to see so much wildlife, especially the gators.Very reasonably priced.

Was a great trip and the tour guide very informative. Well worth a few hours if you're in the area. The boat trip takes you around the lake with a lot of bird life. Gators and turtles in abundance. Tour cost $20 per person.

Lake Martin is a spectacular gem in Bayou Country! The abundance of wildlife can be breathtaking. Kayaking here is spectacular. The Swamp Tours are also spectacular. Young and old will be amazed, especially during the nesting seasons for gators and/or birds! You DO have to be alert where you're walking! This is a pretty active wildlife area, and we're on...

Sunset Point on Lake Martin should not be missed! Take a picnic and enjoy the serenity of nature at its very best!

I've been to Lake Martin a few times, the Bayou Teche Experience is a great way to see the swamp in a kayak. I've seen alligators every time at this swamp. The movie Scooby Doo on Zombie Island is based in the part of Louisiana near Lake Martin. The swamp isn't creepy though, it is peaceful and fun!
