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

Description:

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.

Accommodations:

Primitive camping and picnic areas at each campground

Fees:

$2.00 parking fee and Kisatchie Bayou campground

Directions:

From I-49 take exit 119 to hwy 119 and follow the signs to Kisatchie National Forest and Longleaf Vista scenic byway. There'll be signs for Kisatchie bayou campground and Red Bluff campground
