“The Stock Landing Lodge on Catahoula Lake”- Gateway to Louisiana’s Water-fowling Mecca!

One of only two Lodges positioned on the bank overlooking one of the most famous duck hunting lakes in America is available for sale. If you are a waterfowler, don’t let this once in a lifetime opportunity pass you by! Watch thousands of ducks come to rest in the famed "Catahoula Lake" as the sun sets on the 25,000-acre marsh. Listed as a Ramsar Wetland of Importance, Catahoula Lake is considered one of the only inland freshwater marshes in the State of Louisiana. This marsh offers endless activities for the outdoors man. Bird watching, nature study and exploration of the wetlands are just a few options available to the outdoor enthusiast. In times gone by, Stock Landing was home to riverboats as they transported cotton throughout the Delta. The boats and their captains have long since gone, but the landing beach is still laden with remnants and artifacts from this long gone era. The area has also been popular for Indian artifact hunters searching for clues to a lost age as well as a gathering place for hunters from generations old and new. Catahoula Lake also boasts one of the most dramatic crane rookeries in the south featuring several hundred species of birds on show. This waterfowl rookery has remarkable September Blue Wing Teal hunting, outstanding November and December Pintail and Mallard hunts, followed by unbelievable late season Canvasback and Redhead migration. Catahoula Lake is considered a public hunting area, but access points are very rare as the lake is surrounded by ostracizing private land owners. Home to most of Louisiana’s whitetail records, the 63,000-acre Dewy H. Willis Wildlife Management Area is just a stone’s throw away and actually joins this property on the eastern boundary. Casinos and evening entertainment can be found as near as Natchez, Mississippi or Marksville, Louisiana which are only a one hour drive away. Commercial Air Service is available into Alexandria, Louisiana with an approximate 30 minute drive to the lodge. A full-service lodge touts a 1600 sq. ft. open floor plan with a wrap-a-round porch and is located on 22+/- acres. The 42’x15’ observation deck lures you in as clouds of pintails, canvasbacks and mallards cloud the sky. The lodge includes 2 bunk rooms, 2 full baths, stacked stone bar and a stone fireplace. The mudroom with plenty of equipment storage and duck-plucking room is primo! The property also includes a concrete boat ramp/air-boat launch for quick access to your historic private blind that transfers with the sale of this property. Lakefront property like this Stock Landing Lodge very seldom comes up for sale on the open market as ownerships usually transfer through generations of family or friends. Don't let this unique opportunity slip by you.
