Jessieville-Winona-Fourche Ranger District covers approximately 406 thousand acres on the north and east end of the Ouachita National Forest. The district is blessed with 11 lakes and numerous creeks and rivers for public fishing and water activities. Recreation opportunities abound. This district has a portion of the Scenic 7 Byway running through it with three Civilian Conservation Corp Camp interpretive sites. It has Richardson Bottoms Wildlife Viewing Area, Winona Scenic Drive, the 9,507 acre Flatside Wilderness area, three walk- in-turkey hunting areas, three designated scenic areas, three developed campgrounds including Lake Sylvia, two public rifle ranges, and 183 miles of trail for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The Ouachita National Recreation Trail spans 71 miles across the district and has nine trail shelters dispersed along its length for hiker use. The district is also home to Camp Ouachita, a historic Girl Scouts Inc. camp built between 1936 and 1940 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC). The camp is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only surviving WPA and CCC constructed Girl Scouts Inc. camp in the United States.
