Description:
Camp Beauregard Wildlife Management Area is primarily located in northeast Rapides Parish with some acreage in southeast Grant Parish. The area lies approximately eight miles north of Alexandria.
Camp Beauregard is 12,500 acres and is owned by the Louisiana National Guard. The primary use is as a troop training facility. The Louisiana National Guard also manages the timber for commercial production.
The terrain is characterized by gently rolling hills in the upland areas. The Flagon Creek bottom is a frequently flooded hardwood area of about 800 acres. The upland overstory is dominated by pine plantations. There are scattered hardwoods in the hills. Water oak, post oak, hickory, red oak and sweetgum are the most common species in creek bottom areas. The Flagon bottom is a typical bottomland forest with cypress, overcup oak and bitter pecan the dominant overstory species.
The understory development in the upland area varies considerably depending on the degree of overstory closure. Some plantations that have not been recently thinned have little if any understory. Those areas with good understory development support French mulberry, blackberry, greenbrier, yaupon, trumpet creeper, rattan and other browse plants. The Flagon bottom has swamp privet, water elm, mayhaw and swamp snowbell as the more common understory plants.
Game species available for hunting include squirrel, turkey, deer, rabbits, quail, dove, wood duck and woodcock. The only endangered species known to occur on the area is the red-cockaded woodpecker. However, at this time no known active colonies are present.
The areas first function is as a military reservation, therefore there are special regulations applying to use of Camp Beauregard WMA. An annual permit is required as is checking in and out of self-clearing stations on a daily basis. Limited camping is allowed by reservation only. Call (318) 641-3365 for questions about camping. General information is available from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, 1995 Shreveport Highway, Pineville, LA 71360.
