Our Community

The Town of Cottonport is a community of approximately 2,015 residents and is located in the central portion of Avoyelles Parish. It is a picturesque town located on Bayou Rouge and it was once a major port for shipping cotton to New Orleans. Bayou Rouge was dammed many years ago and is now used mainly for children's fishing tournaments and is decorated beautifully during the holidays. 

Today, our school system is still a great one, but because of consolidation, we no longer have a high school. We have Cottonport Elementary School, St. Mary Catholic School, and the Central Louisiana Technical Community College, Ward H. Nash, Avoyelles Campus.
