You will get a chance to see the Red Cocked headed woodpecker colony – a Ranger may retrieve one of the young from it’s nest –  the Kisatchie Bayou camp site  which has rushing water over rocks – which is rapids in Louisiana -   and over look a terrain that appears to be mountains in Louisiana. There is a cave.
