Port Barre

Port Barre sits right at the point where Bayou Courtableau flows into Bayou Teche. Originally a popular French trading post, Port Barre is considered the birthplace of the Bayou Teche. Today, you can see where Bayou Teche begins and stay at the Bayou Teche RV Park, nestled on the bayou. You’ll also want to stop in at the local grocery to sample some of the best jalapeno, sausage & cheese bread you’ll ever taste.

A popular time to visit is in October when hundreds gather for the Tour du Teche, a 133-mile staged marathon for canoes and kayaks of all sizes.
