Are you ready to get snap happy? And we don't just mean with your cameras! At Bayou Pierre Alligator Park, the whole family can experience the mysterious, unique and exciting world of that amazing creature - the American Alligator!
Just outside of Natchitoches, you will encounter 5 acres of authentic Cajun countryside, which means your experience is authentically Cajun too! With Cajun music, genuine Cajun foods, and of course - those iconic Southern critters - the alligator!
There are HUNDREDS of alligators at the Bayou Pierre Alligator Park, and kids will love seeing them all rush for the food at the hourly feeding shows. From protected walkways, the whole family can see a range of sized alligators - from 4 footers to amazing 1000lb creatures all splashing, swirling, leaping and lunging in the water!
You don't just have to sit back and watch though - nope! You can feed them yourselves! You can even touch them - be brave!
The Alligator Island Show is a lively and informative demo all about the alligator farming industry, and explains to kids about the alligator conservation program to save the beautiful American Alligators.
Want a break from the alligators? No problem! There's an air-conditioned games room where you can play air hockey, or give "The Claw" a try, before heading around the corner to the Reptile Habitat where you can find all those scaly critters you want! From lizards, skins, iguanas, water dragons, and crocodiles - could you imagine ever seeing any other these in the wild?!
A Tiny Town at an alligator park? You better believe it! With a town built at half the scale, with a store, schoolhouse, barber shop and office...it's always popular with kids to try and spot the cute pygmy goats!
It’s all about those reptiles and alligators at Bayou Pierre Alligator Park - they are waiting for you to go say hello!
