Article Image Alt Text

Desoto Parish Tourism joins the rest of Louisiana and America in a look ahead to recovery with a theme of resilience and hope in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. As a rural community, DeSoto Parish has worked hard to establish our area as a destination for fishing, family reunions and small-town charm.

In 2019 the tourism office launched their new website at We included places to stay, visit, dining, fishing, attractions and venues. The website is constantly being updated with new events and locations. 2020 was gearing up to be a successful year for our local events before so many were canceled due to the governor’s proclamation to shelter in place until May 15. The public is encouraged to continue with social distancing and wear face coverings.

While this is a challenging time for everyone in the travel and tourism industry our office will continue to promote our area as ‘just around the corner’ and perfect for social distancing while fishing, hiking, biking or taking a scenic drive around our lovely parish.
