Wild and ruggedly beautiful, the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road traverses more than 180 miles in Southwest Louisiana. From a car the prairies and marshes of Louisiana’s Outbacksm appear peaceful and tranquil, but don’t be fooled; these lands and waters are teeming with life.

Louisiana’s Outbacksm supports 28 species of mammals, more than 400 species of birds, millions of monarch butterflies, 35 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 132 species of fish. In fact, alligators far outnumber people along the trail. Not to worry, they’ll share the walkway!

World-class wildlife viewing, nature photography, fishing, hunting, crabbing, boating and shelling distinguish the Creole Nature Trail as a recreational paradise. Plan your adventure now at VisitLakeCharles.org/Wild and don’t forget to download the free personal video tour app!
