If you ask any real estate agent in Lafayette, Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, or New Orleans what the key component of a successful listing is they will tell you its the location. Location is everything when choosing a site for a new home or business. Location is also very important in the great outdoors in Louisiana.

Just imagine being able to have all of your hunting or fishing gear in one convenient place. That's why so many Louisiana families own or lease hunting or fishing camps. Having that convenient location next to where the action is can make all the difference between a successful adventure outdoors and a return trip to the house with an empty ice chest.
