Between Natchitoches and Winnfield, Louisiana
We left the snake roundup of Mansfield the next morning stopping off at the neighboring Tractor Supply for propane before leaving town. Our goal was another Forest Service campground.
This is a very nice campground looking very much as if it had been recently refurbished.
And no one else was here! Ten dollars a night, half that for Beans and I.
No electricity and water only at certain points along the loop. Cell service is weak.
In my mind I think reestablishing the Civilian Conservation Corp today would be a good plan. It would give the homeless a place to stay, feed them daily and provide jobs for the unemployed all the while rebuild our country’s public lands. Then again, the generation back then in the thirties and forties were not adversed to work. Hmm...guess that is why we don’t have a CCC today.
