Atchafalaya Basin - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Destination Report
Nearest City: Henderson, LA, USA
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: Greg Perry


The Atchafalaya Basin is probably one of the most beautiful places to kayak in Louisiana. It is loaded with wild life; Alligators, Nutria, Beaver, and numerous species of water fowl just to name a few. There are large groves of cypress trees and small islets everywhere. Fishermen are abundant but in a kayak you can get to places that most of them won't go in a Bass Boat.

I put in at McGee's landing on several of my trips. The basin is so large that there are numerous launch sites.


Cabins and House boats as well as small Motels are all available in the area. There are several restaurants in the area, including one at McGee's Landing.


Launch fee was $4.00.


At I-10 Exit 115, turn South onto SR-347 Turn LEFT (East) onto SR-352 Continue on SR-352 to Henderson Levee Rd
Turn RIGHT Henderson Levee Rd
Continue on until you see the Mcgee's Landing.
