The Kisatchie National Forest Is Louisiana’s Only National Forest, And It’s Worth A Stop

Spanning over 600,000 acres across seven central and northern parishes, the Kisatchie National Forest is a nature lover’s paradise. Not only does Louisiana’s only National Forest appeal to hunters and fishers from all over the country, but hikers and campers too. The rugged terrain is some of the most unique in the state, too. The forest is home to some of Louisiana’s oldest rocks, beautiful longleaf pines, and rare plants and animals.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
