This WMA is located in Grant and LaSalle parishes approximately 8 miles northeast of Pollock, Louisiana. It consists of department owned lands and a tract provided by International Paper Company for a total of 4,164 acres. The majority of Little River WMA normally floods seasonally from late Winter through Spring.
The area is primarily bottomland hardwoods. Common tree species include overcup oak, bitter pecan, willow oak. There are also several cypress-tupelo sloughs. Swamp privet, water elm, mayhaw, and overstory regeneration make up the midstory. Understory species growth varies greatly with elevation. The higher areas within the floodplain support green briar, blackberry, and pepper vine as well a variety of annual forbs and grasses. Areas of low elevation have very limited understory growth. The upland sites are forested in pine plantations and stands of mixed pine-hardwoods. A tremendous variety of tree and understory species are found in these areas.
Primary game species on the area are squirrel, wood ducks and turkey. There is also deer, rabbit and woodcock hunting available. Good fishing is available on the river.
Access to the area is via parish roads connecting to U.S. Highway 165. Primary interior roads are improved and provide all weather access unless flooded. Additional access is provided for ATVs on marked trails.
Two camping area are maintained on the WMA. Both provide primitive camping only. One is accessible year around while the other is subject to closure during high water periods. A stone covered boat ramp provides access to the river for smaller boats.
