Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge
Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge was created from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Ouachita and Black Rivers Navigation Project. The 65,000-acre refuge is located in what is known as the Felsenthal Basin, an extensive natural depression that is laced with a vast complex of sloughs, bayous and lakes. The region’s 2 major rivers, the Saline and Ouachita, flow through the refuge. These wetland areas in combination with the refuge’s diverse ecosystem of bottomland hardwoods, pine forests and uplands support a wide variety of wildlife and provide excellent fishing, hunting, boating, wildlife observation opportunities and environmental education opportunities. A visitor center located 5 miles west of Crossett on U.S. 82 contains numerous wildlife exhibits. Open Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
