Avoyelles Parish, in central Louisiana, takes its name from Avoyels Indians, and we commemorate our Native American as well as Cajun heritage. The abundant wildlife and many waterways make this a hunting, fishing and birdwatching paradise, year-round. A thriving agriculture industry beacons foodie travelers for authentic Louisiana cuisine. Casino action boasts a different kind of wildlife, and a variety of accommodations make for a comfortable stay as you explore.
