Swamp People is the series which follows gator hunters, as the most important 30 days of the year approaches. Here’s where it is filmed.
The History series captures the hunting season for the descendants of French Canadian refugees, who settled in a certain swamp region.
With each episode a dangerous risk to those going out on the water to catch alligators in return for money, fans are talking about its filming location.
So, where is Swamp People filmed? We explored the on-set swamp…

The hunting show is filmed exactly where all of the alligator action happens, on the wetland in Louisiana.
Atchafalaya Basin is the largest wetland and swamp in the United States.

Swamp People: Filming location explored
It’s no wonder the alligator hunters are kept busy during hunting season, as the Basin covers 860,000 acres of swamps, lakes and water prairies.
With a 15-mile-wide path across South Louisiana, it is the largest and last great river-basin swamp, it is home to a large alligator population.
Known as the Swamp People filming location, it reportedly has degraded water quality, reduced forest health, and damaged habitat for wildlife.
The swamp is also home to Discovery’s Naked & Afraid series, which sees survivalists live in an extreme environment, amongst the wilderness.
Recently, a Seacor Power lift boat capsized eight miles off the Louisiana coast, which has led to several crew members going missing.
