Canoeing & Kayaking in Mandeville Louisiana

Imagine floating down a beautiful river in a canoe or grabbing a kayak packed with fishing gear to start the hunt for the perfect catch—this is the pleasure found in boating the natural lakes, rivers and swamps abundant throughout Louisiana. Rent your own or go with a guided tour to have a day of fun out on the water.

Mandeville is where the urban meets the natural. Founded in 1834 by the Marigny de Mandeville family of New Orleans, it developed early on as a lakeside summer resort for wealthy denizens of the Crescent City. This remains in evidence in the older quarters of the city, and in some of its key historic properties that are found on Lakeshore Drive. In the 1950s, Mandeville was connected to the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain via the Causeway, the longest bridge in the world.  To complement its well-established, wooded suburbs, Mandeville offers a full complement of upscale amenities. These include fine dining establishments, shops and day spas – the perfect for unwinding after a visit to New Orleans. At the edge of town, Fontainebleau State Park offers cabins and campsites with plenty of diversion for nature lovers. It also connects to the Tammany Trace, a leafy, 31-mile trail that bicyclers find exhilarating.
