Sherburne Wildlife Management Area Camping Area Water System No Longer Available

Oct. 23, 2018 – The water supply system at the Sherburne Wildlife Management Area (WMA) main camping area is no longer available to the public, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announced.

The system was discontinued because it does not meet regulatory requirements set forth by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. Campers and other WMA users must bring their own water for drinking purposes, washing dishes, toiletry, etc.
