Kisatchie National Forest

For those people that appreciate the greatness of the outdoors, there’s no place better in Louisiana to take in the panoramic vistas and hiking trails than Kisatchie National Forest! There are 604,000 acres of breathtaking landscapes, crystal clear streams and tributaries, campgrounds, archaic caves, and the wild azaleas that are in full bloom throughout the area in March and April. The list of activities is virtually endless and includes: bicycling, boating, camping, fishing, gold panning, hiking, hunting, swimming, water skiing, and so much more! 


South Toledo Bend State Park

South Toledo Bend State Park is as equally picturesque as the Kisatchie National Forest, but is smaller in scale. Nonetheless it has become a popular spot for both locals and visitors for the spectacular waterfront views. The park is also known as a destination for bass fishing tournaments. There are a whole host of diverse recreational activities to participate in such as camping, hiking, boating, bicycling, birdwatching, sunbathing on the beach and so much more. The campgrounds have a full range of amenities such as internet, cable and satellite TV, showers, laundry facilities and more, to make your outdoor adventures as comfortable as possible. 



If you want to really explore nature and live off the water, you can plan a canoe trip with Tack-A-Paw Expeditions. You can tour over 70 miles of rivers and streams in Louisiana, including the Sabine River, the Toro Bayou, and the south side of Toledo Bend Reservoir. You can experience what life is like living by the state's major waterways, whether you choose to book a 2 hour trip or perhaps go on an extended 2 to 3-day camp out. Canoeists of all skill-levels will have fun on the water!
