A relic of the construction of the I-49 insterstate that bisects the parish, this manmade lake in Grand Prairie, just 10 minutes north of Opelousas, is a place where you can relax and enjoy the water. Located on the grounds of the I-49 Rest Area, whether you enjoy fishing, water skiing, or swimming, you’re sure to find something to enjoy here. Maybe grab a couple pounds of boudin and have a picnic on the shore. As long as you’re careful of the local Louisiana wildlife, there’s a great time to be had.
