Waterfalls just an hour and a half away from Baton Rouge. Clark Creek natural area is 700 acres of fun and you can get there and back on a tank of gas. Its just 20 minutes from Saint Francisville.

Hiking, bird-watching, and swimming are just some ways to fill your day at this wilderness trail.

Clark Creek is home to world record trees, migrating birds, snakes, land snails, fish, and even the mississippi black bear. This outdoor treasure is truly a sight, and a perfect staycation for anyone who just wants to get away.
