The Highway 472 Camp is a designated Hunter Camp inside the Catahoula National Wildlife Management Preserve. The Hwy 472 Camp allows primitive camping in a predominantly pine setting.
Highway 472 Camp is centrally located within the heart of the Catahoula National Wildlife Management Preserve (east of Hwy 167). Camping within this area is primitive, meaning there is no water or electrical facilities. This camp is located between two beautifully scenic streams, Indian Creek and Bear Creek. The area throughout the Management Preserve is managed primarily for pine - mixed hardwood stands.
In the past several years the camping loop road has been upgraded or reconstructed so that passenger cars can access the camping sites. We have a "quiet time” established for all users which runs from 10 pm to 6 am. That means fellow campers with generators should respect this rule, for the benefit of everyone. No hunting should take place within the recreation area boundary, which has a blue-painted boundary and warning signs posted on the perimeter. Riding Off-Highway Vehicles is prohibited in the Recreation Area. We ask that all garbage be removed from site and deposited within garbage dumpsters located in numerous road intersections throughout Grant Parish. Please do not place nails in trees to hang or tie-up items.
