Contraband Bayou is a large bayou which runs through Lake Charles, Louisiana and empties into Prien Lake. It is so named because of the legendary pirate Jean Lafitte who reputedly hid his contraband somewhere along the shores of the bayou. L'Auberge du Lac is located near the mouth of the bayou, as are part of the city docks of the Port of Lake Charles.

Contraband Bayou as it runs west of the McNeese State University campus.
