Boat Launches

All boat launch sites in Calcasieu and Cameron Parish are listed below. You can filter by freshwater, brackish, and saltwater.

You may choose to bring your own boat to access the numerous excellent fishing opportunities to be had along the Creole Nature Trail. Freshwater fishermen have their choice: lakes, bayous, rivers and marshes offering unmatched variety and challenge. Excellent brackish and saltwater fishing is available in Calcasieu Lake (aka Big Lake), Prien Lake, and, of course, the Gulf of Mexico.
