Kisatchie Bayou - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: May 22, 2011
Nearest City: Natchitoches, LA
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: Grobek


After about 2 inches of rain the day before, we put in at Kisatchie bayou campground and paddled about 7.5 miles to Red Bluff campground. The water was up enough so as not to have to drag the kayak except a couple of times and there was one nice set of rapids to shoot.

Overall a leisurely paddle that took about 4+ hours. I can see where this would be a nice challenge after more heavy rains.
