Bayou Adventure

Paddling on Lake Pontchartrain with Bayou Adventure

Bayou Adventure is your source for Louisiana outdoor recreation, with fishing bait and tackle, crabbing bait and supplies, hunting ammunition and gear, camping supplies, their own branded bug spray, kegs and ice-cold six-packs for your party, even complete meals from the on-site restaurant, Bayou Kitchen.

They rent (and deliver) sturdy, comfortable, single or tandem and fishing kayaks and bicycles for exploring the Tammany Trace and surrounding areas. Bayou Adventure also rents and sells paddleboards and offers group paddleboarding trips. Book a bayou eco-tour on kayaks or a guided kayak fishing excursion. For real adventure, ask about the sunset kayak paddling tours down Cane Bayou to Lake Pontchartrain.

On any given day, Bayou Adventure is a hub of activity. Walk in the door and you might discover a wine or craft beer tasting event, product demos, or an impromptu party--especially if it's a Saints game day. Hungry? You'll want to follow your nose through the store to Bayou Kitchen, the family-run eatery that serves up tasty, homemade breakfasts, lunches and dinners to go. Start you day with a breakfast burrito or beignets and coffee, or get a stacked BLT or grilled chicken wrap to go. Locals love the Smoked Pork Plate with tasty barbecued pork, slaw and green beans. The soup of the day might be traditional chicken-and-sausage gumbo or a hot bowl of bayou shrimp & corn or chicken-artichoke-spinach with a crawfish pie on the side. And if it's game day, look for specials hot wings and artisan pizza.

Bayou Adventure is located at the crossroads of Main Street at Lake Road in Lacombe, just one block from the St. Tammany trace (31-mile resurfaced railroad line through St. Tammany).
