The best camping near Kisatchie National Forest guide

Overview

About

A treasure in the heart of Louisiana, Kisatchie is the state's only national forest. It spreads across seven parishes and is divided into five Ranger Districts totaling over 604,000 acres. Each district boasts a unique set of wildlife and recreational opportunities.

The forest has more than 40 developed recreation sites. Over 100 miles of multi-use equestrian, biking and hiking trails traverse across rolling hills. Distances vary from 1/2 mile to nearly 30 miles. Backpackers love the 27-mile Wild Azalea National Recreation Trail. It begins at the Valentine Lake Recreation Area and ends at Woodworth Town Hall.

Calcasieu and Catahoula districts are especially attractive to mountain bikers. The Camp Livingston Trail Complex is open to off-road vehicles and bikes. Kisatchie's many lakes, bayous, and reservoirs offer plentiful choices for boating, fishing and swimming. 40 established campgrounds and lots of backcountry camping opportunities ensure you've got a place to sleep.
