Description

Frenchtown currently has over three miles of trails which wind around the north and central parts of the park including access to the Amite River's Beach, several Amite River overlooks and access to countless Cypress-Tupelo sloughs. More trails and amenities will be developed as the Park's Master Plan is created.

Frenchtown Road Conservation Area or "The Land Between The Rivers" is the largest park and the largest Conservation Area currently operated by BREC. It is 495 acres of Bottomland Hardwood Forest including Small Stream Forest and Spruce Pine Hardwood-Flatwood Forest habitat; both of which are locally and globally ranked as rare or imperiled habitats.

Flora & Fauna

The property is home to a diverse spread of flora and fauna including several species of state conservation concern and countless migratory birds.
