Saline looks like a step back into the past with buildings all of which have been there for about 30 years. The main road that runs through Saline is where all the businesses are located. The rest of the area is like one big neighborhood.
The biggest attraction to Saline is the Mill Creek Reservoir. Usually misnamed as Saline Lake, it is the biggest, easiest to access and safest body of water in Bienville Parish. The waters are fairly deep and were long ago cleared of trees and tree stumps, making it ideal for boating, skiing, knee-boarding and other water activities. The only danger in the area is the spillway which is a tower that raises about 50 feet off the water. It has a ladder that goes to the top and some people climb it to jump off--but it is very unsafe and has claimed lives.
