L.D.W.F. Issues Advisory on Access to Soda Lake Wildlife Management Area

Release Date: 10/15/2010

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is alerting the public that access to Soda Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) via Soda Lake Drive is no longer possible.

Primary access points into the WMA, located in Caddo Parish north of Shreveport, will remain LA Hwy. 169 on the northern end of the property and Dixie Blanchard Road on the southern end.

The cancellation of an access agreement by an adjacent private landowner has closed the Soda Lake Drive access point on the southwestern boundary of the WMA, as well as eliminating access to the trailhead for the ATV / UTV trail.

Until further notice, ATV use on Soda Lake WMA will be restricted to game retrieval purposes only. UTVs are not allowed. Consult WMA Regulations for details regarding ATV use for game retrieval.
