A little more than 100 miles west of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and 50 miles or so east of Orange, Texas, is Kinder, Louisiana. It's the home of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana. The Tribe owns and operates the resort that sits on the northern edge of this small town and it to some extent dwarfs the town. There are four dominant buildings that includes three hotels and the casino. There is an RV Park and a gas station / convenience store. The resort also includes Kosati Pines Golf Course which is an 18 hole 72 par championship course.
