Lake Martin is an ecological gem. There are many many different bird species, lots of alligators and turtles in the wild. The lake is easily accessible and a good tour will make this a memorable time. We took our grandchildren and they just loved it

We went for a short kayak trip. We saw plenty of wildlife and the Cypress and Tupelo were gorgeous. It was definitelyworth our 3 hour drive to get there.

This lake has lots of wildlife and beautiful Cyprus trees. There are gators, turtles, ducks, egrets, snake birds and herons amongst others. Well worth getting a tour - we went with Cajun Country Tours and loved it.

What can I say about a lake? Lots of water, vegetation, bird life and fish! Go there and take the swamp tour.
