Lacombe is an unincorporated village on Lake Pontchartrain. Once a stagecoach route for Europeans in the early 18th century.

The community is known for the observance of All Saints Day, in which descendants of early residents decorate graves in the oldest cemeteries during the Les Toussaints les Lumieres du Morte ceremony.

The area also has the Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, 15,000 acres of pine flatwoods, and a coastal marsh great for birding, hiking, and kayaking.

Bayou Adventure is a one-stop shop and outfitter for all things outdoor. Get live bait, fishing advice, rent kayaks, or take a guided tour of nearby bayous Cane, Castine, or Lacombe. Also, bikes are available for rent to enjoy a ride on the nearby Tammany Trace.
