Are you planning a road trip down the Creole Nature Trail? Well, you should! “Louisiana’s Outback” is full of gators, wildlife, and natural wonders that the whole family will enjoy. Here are ten things you should remember to bring on your journey to ensure you have an amazing and worry free time.

1. The Creole Nature Trail Experience Guide – Which you can pick up at Adventure Point in Sulphur. You can also download the Free Tour App on your iPhone or Android.

2. Sunscreen and insect repellent – No one likes to get burned or bitten.

3. Bottles of water and snacks – Never know when you might feel the need to have a picnic! There are limited restaurants to stop and eat at along the way. Boudin or cracklings are always an option.

4. Comfy shoes – Especially if you plan to walk down the Blue Goose Walking Trail, the Wetland Walkway, or the Pintail Wildlife Drive & Boardwalk.

5. Binoculars – To be able to watch the wildlife or go birding without spooking them.

6. Beach supplies – Towels, bathing suit, sand bucket, and shovel, etc.

7. First aid kit – Never hurts to be prepared!

8. Road trip playlist – Make sure to have at least a few Louisiana songs on there to get you in the spirit.

9. Crabbing and fishing gear – You don’t need a license to crab and can practice at Adventure Point. Crabbing gear is also available at Brown’s Food Center in Hackberry, along with boudin and almost anything else you may desire.

10. And most importantly…the whole family! The trail is an adventure everyone can enjoy – young and the young at heart.

So grab all of your gear and your sense of adventure then head on over to the Creole Nature Trail for a day to remember. Tag your wild journey with #CreoleNatureTrail and #VisitLakeCharles.
