Little Bayou WMA is named for the small bayou running through the area known as Little Bayou.
Camping is allowed on Little Bayou WMA. There is one campsite on Ashley County Road 104 with pads for RVês, but there are no hookups for electricity or water.
Formerly an agricultural area in the early 90s, Little Bayou WMA was replanted in timber in 1991 with hardwood seedlings and acorns. The area is now predominately forested with bottomland and upland hardwoods and short-leaf pines.
This area offers many types of game to hunt. Deer, turkeys, and small game such as rabbit, squirrels and dove can be hunted. The area is known for excellent rabbit hunting.
Wildlife habitat on this area is managed through timber management and prescribed fires. Native warm season grasses were planted through a grant awarded to the area. This WMA also has one of the few access ramps to Bayou Bartholomew.
Bird watching, floating the bayou and fishing are fun ways to use the WMA other than for hunting purposes.
Hamburg is the closest city with restaurants and hotels. T&T Hog Hut and Sawyers steakhouse are good restaurants try while in the area.
Little Bayou does experience seasonal high waters, flooding is a possibility.
