Come camp and paddle one of Louisiana’s most unique areas. Tammy will lead this trip even though it is her first time here so there should be plenty of adventure. Tammy is reserved in site #16. Bring kayaks or canoes as we will have to find the Castle tree! For anyone that wants to extend this trip, we will leave Chemin A Haut Sunday and head to Poverty Point for two nights.
