If you're like us and are dying to get outdoors right about now, we know of just the place to visit while still practicing social distancing. Caney Lake in Louisiana is the perfect solo trip to get your spirits up high and your fishing rods even higher. Whether you visit morning, afternoon, or night, you'll be glad you made the trip from whatever part of LA you're in.
Located southwest of Chatham, Louisiana sits a lake perfect for fishing and recreation. This hidden gem has just about everything you could hope for right now, including seclusion!
Caney Lake is a fair drive North from any major Louisiana city, but totally worth the trip. After all, the longer you're in your car enjoying the wind in your hair and the sunshine in your face, the better.
Upon arrival, you'll be able to enjoy activities such as fishing, kayaking, eating, and much more. If available, you can even spend the night to repeat your favorite activities all over again in the morning.
There are two restaurants on the lake to choose between, both of which are waterfront properties. While they're likely not offering a dine-in option at the moment, they're worth checking out for to-go orders!
The lake was named by Bassmaster as No. 13 of the "top 100 Lakes to Fish for Large Mouth Bass," so you know fishing is a serious business here.
If you don't have a pole on your person, you'll likely see a few swimming around beneath you.
The longer you stay, the more likely you'll be able to see a gorgeous sunset from wherever you're at on the lake.
Caney Lake is calling our name!
Address: Jackson Parish, LA
