Lake Martin

Lake Martin is a wonderful place to view wildlife and enjoy Louisiana’s natural beauty. Approximately 9,500 acres of cypress-and-tupelo swamp and bottomland hardwood forest habitat are protected here. The incredible bird population is part of what makes paddling here so memorable. You also have a very good chance of encountering reptiles and amphibians. American alligators of all sizes are at home here – use caution. 

It’s a fisherman’s paradise, a kayaker’s playground, and a birdwatcher’s absolute dream.
