We toured the entire lake and there is so much wildlife there. We saw large and small alligators, beautiful birds, trees and lots of plants. We are definitely going back again.

Awesome teeming with wild birds, animals, trees, water plants, fish. Go on a sunset your. It is well worth the experience. I recommend Cajun Country Swamp Tours. Quiet boat with educated guides who grew up in the area and are very knoledgeable.
