Calcasieu/Cameron Parish

The natural splendor of Calcasieu and Cameron parishes beckon, especially along the Creole Nature Trail. This network of scenic highways and walking paths winds through 180 miles of marsh, bayou and shoreline, and much of Cameron Parish has been called "Louisiana's Outback" for its plentiful wildlife and untamed beauty. The Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge, located along the trail, opens more than 9,600 acres of marsh and prairie to the public and includes a visitor center, exhibits and a car tour through its grounds. The many fishing charters and lodges speak to a robust outdoors culture, and Cameron's long coastline has nurtured rare Louisiana beachfront communities, such as Holly Beach.
