Things To Do



The Corps of Engineers operates one recreational facility at Wallace Lake Dam. Wallace Lake Dam not only provides flood control, but also affords visitors the opportunity to fish, hunt, hike or just relax and enjoy the day outdoors. Wallace Lake is referred to by some folks as the best crappie lake in the area. Fishing is also abundant below the dam. Presently the only boat launch available to the public is located at Milton James Cameron Memorial Park on Wallace Lake Road. No user fees are charged at Wallace Lake Dam Recreation Area.

  • Fishing

    One of the most popular activities at Wallace Lake Dam is fishing. Visitors can catch their limit of Black Bass, Crappie, Catfish and various species of bream and sunfish. Other non-game fish include Buffalo, Carp, Gar, Bowfin and Jackfish.

    Safety.... In times of high water, the currents of the bayou are extremely swift and strong. All fishermen are advised to stay a safe distance away from the channel and do not walk the baffle blocks to access the other side of the channel. For boaters approaching the dam from the lake side, please follow warning signs and stay a safe distance away from the dam.

  • Hunting

    Hunting is permitted on 108 acres of the 283 acres at the dam site. Safety zone signs and boundary paint designate the hunting area. Target practicing is not permitted. For questions or maps, please contact a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger at 318-949-1804.



Wallace Lake Dam is managed by the Louisiana Field Office and is located fourteen miles southeast of Shreveport on picturesque Cypress Bayou near La. Hwy 175 at Ellerbe Road.
