Livingston, Pollack La

Old Camp Livingston, Pollack La
Nov, 12, 2012
   In 1940-1945, Camp Livingston was an War World II Army Military camp.  During World War II, thousands of Japanese, German and Italian prisoners of war were kept in this internment camp.  At one point, the buildings were tore down because of asbestose in the buildings. There is information on line about this area.    All the roads and building foundations are still there, with pine trees growing up among everything.  You will kind a kiosk, maps, boondocking and staging area,  on the right on an old tar road.
  We rode Little Creek Trail for 20 miles, riding thru sand, pine trees, more old foundations and 5 hugh circle type swimming pools.
  We also rode on the Hickman trail. This is where we first saw long needle pine trees. The needles are 12-16 inches long! The area isn't to big, but it was an interesting area to explore.
