The Caddo-Womble Ranger District consists of approximately 310,000 acres located in the Ouachita Mountains. The district has very diverse natural resource and recreational programs. Annually, there are timber sales of 18 to 20 MMBF (million board feet), prescribed burns of 25,000 – 30,000 acres, diverse wildlife and fisheries programs, and a unique quartz minerals program. The district office is located in Mount Ida, a small rural community of 900 people surrounded by national forest, Corps of Engineers managed lands, and Lake Ouachita. Lake Ouachita, at 40,000 acres, is one of the largest, cleanest, and most beautiful lakes in the Southern Region of the USDA Forest Service. Hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, canoeing, and water sports such as swimming, scuba diving, and boating attract people from all over the south and midwest to the district.
