Kisatchie National Forest Quarter

Background

Spread across seven parishes in Louisiana, Kisatchie National Forest is divided into five managed units called Ranger Districts that total more than 604,000 acres of public lands. Hidden in the bayous underneath the bald cypress groves and old growth pine lies a world of natural beauty, excitement, learning, recreation, and natural and cultural resources. The name Kisatchie is derived from a tribe of Kichai Indians of the Caddoan Confederacy. It was established as a national site in 1936.
