Lake Charles, LA
Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point
The Creole Nature Trail—also known as Louisiana’s Outback—is a scenic byway looping through the heart of Cajun Country. This 180-mile road winds through marshes and bayous teeming with wildlife, and past shell beaches lining the Gulf of Mexico. The Trail brings visitors through historic parishes rich in Cajun food and traditions, as well as the cultural hubs of Lake Charles and Sulphur.
In designing and developing a fun and immersive experience for the Trail’s proposed visitor center in Sulphur, Split Rock Studios (SRS) created exhibits that encourage visitors to explore not only the Creole Nature Trail, but the entire region. During the schematic design process, SRS has paid particular attention to the diverse offerings of the region. Nature, food, music and history are clearly important and have been prominently featured, while themes of resiliency, hospitality, and exploration have been woven throughout the space.
