Southwest Louisiana is growing!
Pelican Lodge is a world class employee village that supports local project activity in Southwest Louisiana. Pelican Lodge is a 200 acre temporary housing facility located on the East side of Lake Charles (near Chenault) capable of housing up to 4,000 staff & craft personnel
