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.

We did a tour on this lake. Very clean in the fact that there was not trash floating around. Beautiful area, moss covered cypress trees, lots of birds. We saw some small gators and a mama gator protecting her nest. Enjoyed the multiple duck blinds.
