Creston is a fishing community on popular Black Lake, a large waterway full of cypress trees. There is moss on many area trees. A new concrete bridge carries traffic on Louisiana State Highway 9 over the lake. The previous wooden bridge has been dismantled.
Area businesses include Bell's Camp, established in 1936, and the Sea and Sirloin Restaurant, which opened in 1983.
Among the pioneer families in Creston are Perot, Trichel, Pardee, Dortlon, and Desadier. They trace their origins to the 1720 with the marriage in Mobile, Alabama, of a Chitimacha Indian slave, Marie Theresa De La Grande Terre, originally from Lafourche Parish in south Louisiana, and a French military officer, Jacques Guedon.
