True Detective Road Trip

Take this tour of True Detective’s Louisiana

  • 8

Created by Roadtrippers - June 27th 2016

True Detective‘s unmistakable Louisiana backdrop and contradicting industrial landscapes makes for one of the most beautiful locations a murder mystery could ever hope for. This map is inspired by the beautiful and desolate locations in the True Detective universe. Spoilers ahead!


Not since Twin Peaks has a television show so masterfully set a scene that will forever be identified with a series. Dora Lange’s crime scene in Erath, Louisiana, is rural and indigenous, both beautiful and unforgettable.

Erath City Hall

Lafayette is the fourth largest city in Louisiana, and the setting for the police precinct where Rust and Marty began their dark spiral into the world of Carcosa.

Located in Aciadia and St. Landry parish, Eunice is home to 10,298 and is the sight of the evangelist Joel Theriot’s destroyed church. Here, Marty and Rust discover the mural of a woman with an antler crown painted on the wall, further escalating their search for the killer.

Buras-Triumph, Louisiana is home to 2,258 people and is the fictional location of Tuttle’s Light of the Way Academy. Many fans believe this is the true location of the Yellow King’s Carcosa.
