The Kisatchie National Forest is located in the central areas of Louisiana.
Where is this Forest?


Welcomeimage for Alexandria Forestry Center

  Kisatchie National Forest has more than 604,000 acres, is spread across seven parishes in Louisiana and is divided into five managed units called Ranger Districts.  Hidden in the bayous, beneath the bald cypress groves and old growth pine, is a world of natural beauty, excitement, learning, recreation, resources and wildlife in their purest form. Come visit Louisiana's only national forest. Our website has migrated to a new system and you may have to become familiar with the new navigation tabs.  We hope that you find this revised website a user-friendly application.
