  • We enjoyed the drive around lake Martin. The visitors center is small but the volunteer was friendly and helpful. They have public restrooms and nice walking paths/boardwalks. We saw a huge nutria!  more »

  • Went kayaking for the day here. Beautiful lake. Lots of Cypress trees. Good bit of fisherman were out there so I assume the fishing is good. Tour groups were also out there, but the guides make sure to stay away from the locals. To rejuvenate the soul, it's a beautiful lake.
  • A lovely lake. It was awesome to see the swamp and wildlife. We did a tour with Cajun Swamp Tours as we meandered around the lake for a couple hours. The road around the lake was well maintained and everyone we encountered walking around and fishing and taking tours were very friendly. It was gorgeous and cool to see the duck blinds in the water.
