Cane River Lake is a beautiful, meandering body of water flowing through downtown Natchitoches and on the Plantation Country. Originally called the La Rivierre du Cannes, the river runs through a narrow valley, 35 miles long and six miles wide, from Natchitoches to Cloutierville and once supported one of the most sophisticated societies in the French colonies. The only pure trace of that unique society left today is the French Creole style of architecture found in the region's plantation houses and their out buildings. There are remembrances of the past on this long and narrow lake.

Address: Natchitoches Parish
