Recreation, Waterways & Wildlife Reserves

Ben’s Creek State Wildlife Management Area PERMANENTLY CLOSED
Ben’s Creek Wildlife Management was part of the State WMA system since 1987. In 2012, negotiations to renew the lease broke down. That means the Washington Parish property has not been accessible to the public since June 30, 2012. The property is owned by the Weyerhaeuser Corporation.
