Established for the purpose of providing safe grounds for the breeding of migratory birds, Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge came into being in the year 1937. Today, it covers an area of 35,000 acres. Over the years, the vegetation has grown and become more diverse, which is the primary reason for the growing population of the birds! Freshwater marsh, moist soil fields, trees, shrubs and a number of rice wheat and soybean plantations make this a haven for birds. Some of the species that you will get to observe here include ibis, egrets, and spoonbills. A number of species of ducks and geese have made this wilderness their home, as have a number of other animals including alligators, raccoons and otters. Don’t forget to carry your camera on your visit here!

Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge Reviews & Ratings
Although I'm originally from Lake Arthur, Louisiana, I can't say that I've visited this place on any occasions...maybe my reasons are that I see that type of landscape (swamps, marshes, rivers, & etc. constantly on a daily basis; wherefore, for me has become somewhat methodically repetitious in a stagnant sort of way leaving me destitute desiring/longing for better terrain within this vast beautiful country of United States. Overall, I have chosen to give this survey a positive 4 plus rating & would highly recommend this recreational spot to family, friends, locals of their community, or out of state/town strangers seeking a beautiful quiet resting place/atmosphere. I've relocated to deep West Texas quite a few years ago, not really missing out on all that type of landscape scenery.
Had fun and caught a reasonable amount of fish...on the negative side: no restrooms available was really frustrating...had teen girls who needed the bathroom..we were thirsty and could not drink for fear that we would need a restroom...also, no trash cans...also more space needs to be opened up so people can bank fish...frustrating fighting for the few good places to bank fish..plenty of place to fish if u have a boat...it really needs to be a great place to bring kids to fish...we need more bank fishing area in order to do this...boat people really have the great advantage. We love going to Lacassine..just wish it was more "regular" people friendly.
Beautiful place. Great Fishing!
It's the marsh what can I say if you want to see an alligator go right out there if you want to catch a fish get your pole wet can't get lost it's great
Still not holding enough water in impoundment let flood up. Would be world class fishery cant even kayak in pool d. It sucked
