MORE UPCOMING EVENTS TO COME…
NEW YEAR'S EVE
You don't want to miss out on our annual Chicken Drop at midnight with party favors and live music in the Barn! Bring all your besties and share a toast with us to bring in the new year! Also enjoy a firework display over the lake and other daily scheduled activities.
CHILDREN'S MARDI GRAS
Mardi Gras is a time for festivities, food and chasing chickens! This weekend is geared for the kiddos to come out and enjoy the true sprit of a traditional Cajun Mardi Gras run (Lakeview style). Get your kids involved making their own Mardi Gras costume with a mask and capuchon for the parade. Bring decorations for your golf cart and running shoes for chasing those chickens. We close out the afternoon with local live music!
There's never a dull moment during the Mardi Gras season! With lots to do around the surrounding area and also on park grounds, you'll need to schedule in time for a nap. We have local, live music scheduled 4 consecutive nights with some of our most popular Cajun, Zydeco and Swamp Pop musicians in Louisiana! Along with a variety of park activities, we also host our annual boucherie the Monday before Mardi Gras. This is an intimate moment when you can experience an old time Cajun tradition of butchering a pig and having different groups of individuals prepare a Cajun dish from the butchered meat. We are also centrally located to the best Courir de Mardi Gras runs in the area!
We have you and your family covered with all of your favorite Easter activities. Enjoy an Easter egg hunt, arts & crafts and a visit from the big bunny himself! Bring your camera because he also poses for pictures.
BOOT BREW FEST
If you love beer as much as we do, then this is a must on your bucket list! This is Louisiana's first and only homebrew competition and festival. All beer served on site is made from an amateur brewer. Join us for some great tasting beer while visiting the brewers and learning about their techniques! More information at
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
With the beach open and the warmer weather upon us, spend this extended holiday weekend with us! The swimming area will cool you off and the smell of BBQ cooking will have you racing back to your campsite for a delicious meal around the campfire. Take a break from the beach and participate in one, or all of our many scheduled events throughout the weekend.
4TH OF JULY
Wear your favorite red, white and blue outfits this weekend! You don't have to go far to enjoy live music on our beach bandstand, while cooling off with our refreshing Margaritas and Daiquiris from our nearby tiki hut. We also have plenty of fun events scheduled to keep you entertained throughout your stay. Fireworks over the lake are a must to complete your stay with us!
Don't let the school year creep up on you without one last hoorah on the beach! With live music, swimming and beach activities, you'll wish there were a few more weeks of summer. This 3 day weekend is a perfect time to get the family together for laughter and everlasting memories.
