Beauregard Parish is the southern gateway to The Western Corridor. With a heritage that reflects as much of Texas as Louisiana, Beauregard Parish reminds the visitor that The Western Corridor was once disputed between the United States and Spanish Texas. Outdoor lovers find much to do here. There is hunting for birds and larger game and river and lake fishing. Birders find the area rich in opportunities, for half of the birds of North America are found in Southwest Louisiana. DeRidder, Hub of West Louisiana Canoe Country, is surrounded by marvelous waterways popular with canoe lovers nationwide. Chief among these are the Sabine River, Whiskey Chitto, Toro Bayou and Kisatchie Bayou. Information on Beauregard Parish, The Western Corridor and West Louisiana Canoe Country may be obtained from the Beauregard Parish Tourist Commission, Box 1174, DeRidder, LA 70634, phone/fax (318) 463-5534 or (800) 738-5534.
