Lots of brochures with lots of info, tiny gift shop. Clean bathrooms. Parking lot is small if your towing or in an RV there’s parking along the lake and it’s a short walk to the center.

The visitor center has good information on local attractions. It is right on the lake and has very nice views. I only wish it had been a warmer day and not overcast.

It is a nice stop though.

The Lake Charles Visitors Center is asthetically beautiful with alligator sculptures and art work. Pickup brochures of areas of interest in southwest Louisiana.

Looking around for some things to do in Lake Charles area; stroll around, use the restrooms; pick up brochures; purchase post cards; take photos of some of the alligators and outside topiary figures. Spent almost 2 hrs. Highly recommend.

We were visiting Lake Charles because our son graduating college is getting ready to move there. Kristen Shiver at the Visitor Center was so warm and helpful. She got a map for us and showed us the places we wanted to go. It started off our trip to a great start.

I have stayed here several times during business travel, but this was the first time bringing kids and grandkids. They enjoyed the pool and lazy river as well as walking along the boardwalk. Great restaurant choices onsite. The rooms are always clean, comfortable, and spacious.
