Containing the highest elevation in Louisiana, Bienville is at the Top of Louisiana. The parish seat is Arcadia, which replaced the town of Sparta in 1890 after the railroads were constructed. A hunting and fishing paradise, Bienville Parish offers a wide variety of ponds, lakes, and wooded areas that are prime for weekend getways.
