The City of Lake Charles is located on the banks of the Calcasieu River in Southwestern Louisiana, and borders both Lake Charles, Prien Lake, Contraband Bayou and English Bayou that flow through various parts of the city. History has documented that even the famous Pirate "Jean Lafitte" sailed along our beautiful Lakeshore.
Within Southwest Louisiana you will find an abundance of lakes, streams and rivers truly making Southwest Louisiana a “Sportsman’s Paradise” There are many water activities available to Lake Charles LA residents and visitors, Paddle Boarding, Boating, Fishing, Nature Trails, Parks, even a Beach! Because the weather in SW Louisiana is mild, outdoor activities are celebrated year-round!
Lake Charles residents are fortunate to enjoy beautiful "red sunsets" and incredible views of the Lake and Bayous that run throughout Calcasieu Parish!
