The Vermilion River is one of the true treasures of Acadiana, and if you ever wanted to paddle 'down river' and camp out in some beautiful rustic spots along the way, now is your chance! Lafayette Travel and the Bayou Vermilion District have teamed up to present an 'only in Louisiana' adventure on March 22-25. The inaugural 'Vermilion Voyage' will be a three day overnight paddle down the Vermilion River starting at the Acadiana Park Nature Station, and ending up at beautiful Palmetto Island State Park. The 50 mile paddle through Lafayette and Vermilion Parishes promises to be a unique and fun event for outdoor lovers.

Registration is limited, and can be made at
