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.

What can I say about a lake? Lots of water, vegetation, bird life and fish! Go there and take the swamp tour.

I've been visiting Lake Martin for twelve years now and always find something intriguing to photograph. Every season has something to offer as a view. In the early years, springtime brought many birds and alligators to photograph. The birds still come but unless you have...More
