Tunica Hills Beckons Hikers and Campers

View All Outdoors

Challenging hiking trails reward outdoor enthusiasts in the Tunica Hills.  Rugged bluffs, ravines and waterfalls shape the landscape of the Tunica Hills Wildlife Management, which is located an hour’s drive from downtown Baton Rouge. The nearly 6,000-acre tract of rolling pine and hardwood forest also draws bikers, bird watchers, campers, picnickers, photographers and horseback riders to miles of recreational trails. Tunica Hills is rich in wildlife, including white-tailed deer, coyote, fox, bobcat, turkey, squirrels and chipmunks. All-terrain vehicles are permitted in some areas, as is hunting and trapping.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries-owned preserve is home to creatures and habitat that are rare or found no place else in Louisiana, including the Coopers hawk.

The adjacent Tunica Hills campground area includes a variety of options for those looking to stay the night, including tent pads with electricity, a grill and a picnic table, and additional spaces for group cooking. Nearby bathroom facilities offer showers and there are also larger cabins and RV spaces available for those who prefer a more spacious experience.
