Clark Creek Recreational Area is just over the state line into Mississippi. Once upon a time it was a secret but I think most people know about it now. If you have never been it is definitely worth going to see.

The chalmette battlefield is pretty cool. For those who don't know its where Andrew Jackson kicked arse in the battle of new orleans.


where aurora gardens academy was across the river from there in early 70s and into the 80s there were oak trees that still had miniballs and shrapnel in them....

could put your finger on them and get lead to rub off was pretty cool.......

Old Camp Claiborne is pretty cool. An abandoned WWII installation, it's about 50 miles east of Ft. Polk. The front gate was at the intersection of LA112 and US 165, just north of Forest Hill.

You can still see the foundations of many of the old buildings and bunkers, but the area is grown up with trees. Some of the roads are still passable, but some areas are off limits due to potential unexploded ordnance.

Oh yeah, and there's a place not too far from me called "Headless" where apparently people have seen the ghost of a headless horseman.

Personally I think it was a bunch of hippies hallucinating.

re: Little known places in S. Louisiana
Most people don't believe me, but my great grandfather worked for southern railroad around the turn of the century. The woods between St. Bernard hwy and the battlefield is where my powpow's house was. They leased the battlefield and had a dairy farm there. Used to use that colonial house to store their cows in the winter. My great grandma continued to live there well into the mid 60's. They used to find stuff all over the battlefield.

It's there.

There is one below Violet, La off SB hmy that has a pet cemetery. As far back as I can remember, they were planting animals in it. I'm 55 years old.

I honestly have no idea. My educated guess would be a local library.

re: Little known places in S. Louisiana
I grew up in Ethel LA (E Feliciana Parish) on Battle Road. It was named Battle Road because Andrew Jackson moved his men down the path on his way back north from the Battle of New Orleans. He camped along Thompson Creek and therefore they named the town of Jackson LA after him.

True Story.
