Reviewed February 4, 2014

We spent a few hours driving through this road. From Lake Charles nobody really told us that there was anything to see by driving south and along those route.

We did so, went into a few drive through Wildlife estates and saw many Alligators, frogs, turtles, and more birds than you can poke a stick at.

Stop in at a visitor centre and they have simplistic maps on drives to do, but as I said many info centres didn't tell us it would be any good so we lucked out.
