Atchafalaya Basin Program

Atchafalaya Welcome Center

"Smack dab in the center of the Atchafalaya Basin" is a very welcoming site for those traveling on Interstate 10, all destinations east or west bound!

The Atchafalaya Welcome Center is open to all - seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The center is located off Interstate 10 at exit 121.

This first-class facility has much more to offer than a restroom visit or quick stop for coffee. The center is quite impressive with plenty of historical information within the walls of this beautifully designed Acadian-style cottage and museum. On the outside, wildlife and natural will take you back in time. Come take a tour, it's a place that all ages can enjoy and experience.

The state departments of Natural Resources (DNR), Culture, Recreation and Tourism (CRT), and Transportation and Development (DOTD) are partners in this project completed in June 2004.
