About DeSoto

There is a whole world of history awaiting you in Northwest Louisiana!

Discover DeSoto on the northwestern boundary of Louisiana, at the Texas state line. From natural areas like Toledo Bend Lake to living history reenactments at Civil War battlefield sites, to small town Main Streets, DeSoto Parish beckons you with rural charm and hospitality. Drive though rolling, piney woods, view beautiful, mid-19th-century Greek Revival architecture, pick ripe berries in-season, and explore historic cemeteries. After dining on amazing, fried fish and hot water cornbread, shop local, eclectic stores for the perfect souvenir and then settle in to a cozy bed & breakfast.

Cycling, hiking, birding, and fishing are favorite outdoor activities, and with more than 30 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, the area is a treasure trove of exploration!
