Why You Should Drive Your Chevy to Kisatchie National Forest

Summertime is all about relaxing, making memories, and exploring places you may have never been before. This summer, do all three in one trip. Pack up a tent, sleeping bags, and a cooler in your Chevrolet, and head out on a trip to Kisatchie National Forest in central Louisiana.

Louisiana is known for its unique and mystical landscapes and wildlife. But few people can say they have experienced the great variety of wilderness that our beautiful state has to offer all in one place.

This is what makes Kisatchie National Forest such a gem. It has biking and hiking trails through old growth pine forests, canoeing through secluded bayous and bald cypress swamps, swimming and camping areas, and impressive scenic overlooks all waiting for you and your family or friends to come and explore.

Designated as a National Forest in 1930, Kisatchie protects 604,000 acres of sweeping landscapes and rare habitats. Drive through long-leaf pine savannas up to the 1.5-mile Longleaf Vista Interpretive Trail and scan the trees for the crow-sized pileated woodpecker, likely the largest woodpecker in the world, as well as Louisiana black bears. Camp at Kisatchie Bayou campground, where you can swim in the evening and fall asleep under a sky full of stars.
