There are also lots of cracks and potholes in the shoal that could result in a foot entrapment. Call the Ranger Station at (318) 472-1840 for current conditions.

The falls can be reached by taking Hwy 118 to Kisatchie Falls Rd. After you cross the bridge over the bayou, the falls will be near a small parking area on the right. There is also a road that goes off to the right, before crossing the bridge. This is the easiest way to access the play wave.
This is Kisatchie Falls at a low level.
