“Alligators and Spanish Moss”

Reviewed April 27, 2014

To see a real Louisiana swamp draped with hanging moss and dotted with water hyacinths isn't always easy, but Lake Martin offers it all. If you visit in the Spring, you may see thousands of egrets, roseate spoonbills and other native Louisiana birds nesting in the trees. In the Spring the alligators come out to sun and so do the turtles. Take the swamp tours for a close up look with experienced guides.

Simply visit for the view. You'll see gators and birds in this swamp environment. Bring a fishing pole.

You must come here to experience all that is the beauty of a natural swamp. Such a deal to take a swamp tour for two hours with people from around the world for only 20 bucks! Wear warm clothes and bring your smile. You won't be disappointed! Nice tour guides and friendly folks on the tours!!!!
