Location + Surroundings
This lodge is located in Saint Joseph, Louisiana, near the shores of Lake Bruin. This 3,000-acre ox-bow lake formed about 500 years ago when the mighty Mississippi River changed its course and left the lake behind. Today, the lake provides guests with clear waters that stretch around in a U-shape for nearly 11 miles, while the Mississippi River lies less than a mile to the west. The lake is a prime spot for fishing, swimming, and boating within a scenic setting. The shoreline is fringed with cypress trees and lovely lake homes, and the water is full of bass, white perch, catfish, and bream.
Part of the land surrounding the lakes belongs to Lake Bruin State Park, where guests can rent flat-bottom boats. The region is also home to three wildlife areas: the Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge, the Buckhorn Wildlife Management Area, and the Big Lake Wildlife Management Area. At the Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge, guests will find hardwood forests and open water wetlands that are home to more than 400 species of wildlife, including Louisiana black bears and alligators. At the two wildlife management areas, guests will find hunting grounds full of white-tailed deer, squirrels, rabbits, and turkeys.
On Saturday mornings, from Memorial Day and Labor Day, guests can head downtown to visit the Saint Joseph Farmer's Market. Here, they will also find a couple of restaurants and a grocery store. Day trip options include Natchez, Mississippi, which is about an hour to the south, where guests will find historic sites such as the Longwood mansion and the Natchez National Historical Park. Another option is Vicksburg, Mississippi, which is about an hour to the north. This city was the site of the Siege of Vicksburg during the Civil War and is today home to Vicksburg National Military Park.
The site is about three hours and 40 minutes from New Orleans, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More
