At A Glance
The Kisatchie National Forest is the only national forest in Louisiana. North Louisiana is home to four of the five Kisatchie National Forest Ranger Districts: Caney, Catahoula, Kisatchie, and Winn. The districts provide nearly half a million acres of land where you can fish, hike, and hunt.
As you know, the Kisatchie National Forest is huge…it is a national forest, after all. Because of its size, there’re various habitats and unique ecosystems throughout the forest. The Caney Ranger District is our favorite area of the forest to visit, but we also really, really, really enjoy our trips to Catahoula, too.
We suggest you check out the Caney District Corney Lake area near Bernice and Summerfield, and the Catahoula District Iatt Lake and the Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden.
