More info: A bayou is a slow-moving creek or a swampy section of a river or a lake. Bayous are usually found in flat areas where water collects in pools. They are most commonly found in the Gulf Coast region of the southern United States, in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas.

“Bayou” originated from the Choctaw word “bayok”, which refers to a small stream. The current spelling of the word comes from the Louisiana French variation of the word “bayouque.
