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!

A wonderful lake and swamp, full of aligators and thousands of nesting birds. We saw eagles in a nest and many other birds. We HIGHLY recommend going out on the lake with Norbert Leblanc (81 years old). A unique and respectful insight into this beautiful area.

I never thought I would see a beautiful swamp but Lake Martin is breath taking. Serene; diverse wildlife; no mosquitoes; unusual plants. Do not miss an opportunity to tour Lake Martin!

This is a very interesting to see all types of wildlife and enjoy the adjacent swamp. The duck blinds in the lake are interesting.

I've been to Lake Martin many times. What you see changes as the seasons do. Some times all you see are nutrias, sometimes tons of different kinds of birds. Others lots of alligators. A drive down Rookery road holds something different around every turn. Its a must see destination.
