Kisatchie National Forest Temporarily Closes Developed Recreation Sites

Mar 25, 2020

All bathrooms and group day-use sites on the Kisatchie National Forest have been closed temporarily for the health and safety of visitors and staff.


Effective immediately all developed campgrounds, excluding primitive hunter camps, will close temporarily.


Dispersed camping remains available throughout the general Forest zone. Boat launches, hiking, biking and horseback trails remain open as the Forest remains open to hunting, fishing, hiking and biking. Motorized vehicle trails are currently closed for a two-week period due to recent, excessive rainfall amounts. The motorized vehicles trails will be re-evaluated and opened when safe to do so. The public may check the status of the motorized trail system anytime by dialing the OHV Hotline at 866-830-6467. For more information on particular recreation sites, please visit
