Default Area Description

Grassy Lake Wildlife Management Area is located in northeastern Avoyelles Parish. Primary access is via Louisiana Highway 451 to Bordelonville, cross the levee at the Bayou des Glaises flood control structure and follow the gravel road. Approximately 20 miles of all-weather limestone roads are maintained on the area. Additional access is provided by a network of ATV trails which span for approximately 7 miles.

It lies in the Red River alluvial floodplain and is subject to periodic backwater flooding. The terrain is flat and drainage is poor. Bayou Natchitoches transects the area and has several smaller tributaries. Smith Bay, Grassy Lake, Lake Chenier, and Red River Bay are the four major water bodies.

The forest cover is composed entirely of bottomland hardwood species such as willow, cypress, bitter pecan, swamp privet, water elm, overcup oak, cottonwood, sycamore, honey locust, and hackberry.

Understory vegetation is typical for such poorly drained land. Common species include buttonbush, deciduous holly, smilax, dewberry, rattan, peppervine, and various annual grasses and sedges.

Game species hunted are swamp rabbits, deer, squirrels, wild turkey, woodcock and waterfowl. Trapping for furbearing species is allowed by special permit.

Largemouth bass, crappie and bream provide fair sport fishing. Commercial fishing is allowed by special permit.

Primitive camping is allowed on two camping areas. No electricity, running water, or toilet facilities are provided.
