Waterfalls in Louisiana



Who knew that waterfalls could be found right outside of St. Francisville, LA?  When I think of waterfalls, Louisiana and Mississippi don't immediately come to mind!! However, just over the Louisiana border is Clark Creek Natural/Nature Area, located in Woodville, MS.  Our Frugal Family Travelers love this spot for its unique topography and close driving distance.   We recently spent the day here hiking and exploring several of the waterfalls.  There are many trails in this area and it is truly a place where you can "choose your own adventure."  There are seven waterfalls on the map.  Our favorite adventure was hiking the creek bed to the base of one of the falls!  This adventure was definitely a confidence builder for our Frugal Family Travelers and they felt such a sense of accomplishment from this experience!  Our small travelers had a blast searching for the perfect walking stick and interesting rocks.  If your family enjoys adventure, beautiful scenery and the amazing sound of falling water as it splashes on the rocks in its path, then plan a visit here! You will not be disappointed!

Tips:  
*Pack plenty of water and snacks!! 
*Be aware that the area is quite hilly and hiking can be strenuous at times. 
*There is an honor box in which to place a nominal fee!
*Trails are pet-friendly.
*Try to plan your trip after this area has had some significant rainfall.  The waterfalls are more impressive!
*This is about a 2 hour drive from the New Orleans/Slidell, Louisiana area just outside of St. Francisville, LA. 

Note:  Future posts will discuss how to combine this location with others to make an entire Frugal Family vacation!!

Directions: Clark Creek Natural Area, 366 Fort Adams Road, Woodville, MS 39669, (601) 888-6040.
