Bayou Macon is a bayou in Arkansas and Louisiana. It begins in Desha County, Arkansas, and flows south, between the Boeuf River to its west and the Mississippi River to its east, before joining Joe's Bayou south of Delhi in Richland Parish, Louisiana. Bayou Macon is about 218 miles (351 km) long.
L. D. Knox of Winnsboro, a perennial Louisiana political candidate, owned approximately 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of Bayou Macon land which he hand cleared and cultivated in what he considered to have been an aberrant but advanced style of agriculture.
