Description:

This is my wife and my second trip to Big Creek Bayou.

We decided after exploring to the right from the launch under the bridge on hwy 115, to give it a try going to the left of the bridge this trip.

This was a very exciting paddle, and saw much more wildlife. We saw several alligators this trip, most of them small (2-4 ft.)and very shy, couldn't get a good pic because they wouldn't let us get close enough.

This is also a very beautiful paddle, with lots of trees and shade to paddle through. Big Creek Bayou is certainly our favorite place to go and enjoy a relaxing, yet exciting paddle.

There's good fishing though out the bayou and plenty of places to stop and stretch your legs.

Accommodations:

None

Fees:

None

Directions:

Take hwy 107 out of Pineville south towards Marksville. Just past Center Point, LA - take hwy 115 to the left and drive about 5 miles. You will come to the bridge that crosses the bayou. You can drive down below bridge and launch.
