Iberville Parish Waterways & Bayous

Waterways are our specialty in Iberville, mainly because we have so many and they are so stunningly beautiful. The parish is split by the mighty Mississippi River, but Iberville also boasts several entrances into the majestic Atchafalaya Basin, along with numerous bayous. 

The 800,000 acre Atchafalaya Basin is often referred to as the “South’s last wilderness,” and its swampland is home to more than 85 species of fish, 200 species of birds, alligators, black bear and other wildlife. The waterways tell much about our history and lifestyle. 

You can get up close and personal with our unique waterways via a ride on the ferry across the Mississippi, a picnic at the award-winning Bayou Plaquemine Waterfront Park, a personal boat tour of the Basin, fishing off our bayou banks, or using one of our numerous boat launches.
