Exploring Fall in Zwolle

From colorful leaves to our delicious Tamale Festival, let us tell you why Fall in Zwolle is our favorite!

Our quiet little town of about 2,000 residents has charmed travelers and families for many years. Beautiful leaves changing colors, cool crisp air, the scent of Tamales from our annual Tamale Festival floating across the breeze – it is no secret that Autumn is everyone’s favorite season to plan their visits to us at Wildwood Resort. 

Zwolle Tamale Festival

Zwolle has a rich Spanish and Indian heritage, and our famous Tamale Festival (October 10-12, 2019)  is a fun family-friendly event honoring our heritage with plenty of delicious tamales, arts and crafts, parades, live entertainment, and children’s activities. Without-a-doubt, the Zwolle Tamale Festival makes for a wonderful reason to plan your next visit to Wildwood Resort!

Besides strolling around our beautiful property and taking advantage of the activities at Wildwood Resort ( we have some of the best fishing around!) you can take a quick 20 minute drive to Toledo Bend State Park, where the beauty continues. Toledo Bend State Park has over 900 acres of brilliant scenery to explore, and even more opportunities to fish, hike, and enjoy outdoor activities. With the air already beginning to crisp, and the leaves ready to shed their green, now is the perfect time to take in all the majestic nature that surrounds us in Zwolle, Louisiana. 

Fort Jesup

If you want to explore some historic sites during your visit to Wildwood Resort, Fort Jesup is a 30 minute drive down-the-road. Originally named Cantonment Jesup, the site was selected by Zachary Taylor in 1822 and the fort existed for 26 years as one of the strongest garrisons in Louisiana. Guided tours of the grounds and the museum are offered daily and make for a wonderful experience!
