“Nice Siteseeing”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Lake Martin is a peaceful place with a unique environment. I went on a swamp tour here (Cajun Country Swamp tours); very educational. I recommend visiting in the morning or evening to see alligators and sweat less. Midday is very hot and I didn't see adult alligators at this time of day. I recommend Lake Martin to anyone that loves to be outside and learn about the environment.

“Open Free evening walk”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is a free and open place to go after work. Not too many places open after 5:30 pm. This was a nice nature walk.

“Great site for scenery and wildlife”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is a very beautiful spot. Great viewing for wildlife. You can rent canoes or kayaks. Be advised that there is only one small store out there. Very rustic location. No frills but that is what you want when traveling to a spot like this.

“Awesome Views”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Egrets roosting in the trees, sunsets that make for awesome photos in the evenings, and just a lovely place to visit. What more could one want in a nature preserve? I truly enjoyed driving around this area and watching the wildlife as well as walking around and trying to spot the alligators as they peered out of the water.
