Crown Point/Barataria

Barataria and Crown Point are known for their scenic bayou hideaways, swamps and great fishing. The Barataria Bay is separated by two Gulf barrier islands, Grand Isle and Grand Terre. The lower lying area of Barataria is marshland consisting of several small islands. The area of Crown Point and Barataria extend from the Town of Jean Lafitte and are noted for shrimping, fishing, sulfur production and trapping. Swamp and bayou tours, kayaking and canoeing are popular activities. French-Cajun heritage is prevalent in everything from dialect and cuisine to music and dance.
