Photography at Creole Nature Trail

The Creole Nature Trail All-American Road is a photographer’s dream just waiting to be lived. Whether you favor panoramas or close-ups, you’ll discover an immense range of opportunities and vantage points.

  • Vast stretches of undisturbed marsh and prairie.
  • Miles of natural Gulf beaches, loaded with shells, and the ever-changing Gulf of Mexico.
  • Colorful neo-tropical birds, graceful waders, ducks and geese of every description.
  • Alligators — from newly hatched in the spring, to large gators who have been in these parts for years.
  • Pelicans and Porpoises in the Calcasieu Ship Channel are best viewed while crossing via the Cameron Ferry.
