Avoyelles Parish, in central Louisiana, takes its name from Avoyels Indians, and we commemorate our Native American as well as French Creole 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.
