CWilderness AreaCow Bayou ATV trail is situated on 228 acres of mixed pine and hardwood timber with 1.5 miles of shoreline.

This is a purely wilderness area. There a a couple of spots where a small boat could be launched. Primarily this is a park that has become popular with ATV enthusiasts and has been developed to some degree for them. Approximately 8 miles of marked trails form a figure eight shape, so when you complete the trail you will finish where you started, thus, making it convenient for you to be back at your vehicle. There is a billboard located at the entrance to these trails that post a map showing the actual trail layout. This park is free to the public.

This park is not easy to find... there are a number of unmarked roads in the area, and within the park, that make getting somewhat lost very easy.

The only "creature comfort" you'll find here is the "chair", in the picture below, carved into a tree stump! (...but, "the chair" was a number of years ago and is only a memory now)
