Meet the Staff

Clayton is a Northeast Louisiana native, who after a long, successful career in medicine, found his way back home and is enjoying a simpler, more stress-free life.
He is thrilled to welcome guests, from far and wide, to Dave’s Bayou Lodge. Clayton extends the southern hospitality that Louisiana is so famous for, and Dave’s Bayou is blessed to call him ours.
During the off-season, Clayton enjoys domestic and international travel, spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading, good food and conversation, physical fitness, & the great outdoors.
