Camp Moore was the largest Confederate training camp located in Louisiana during the Civil War. While the camp was destroyed, the land and cemetery has been preserved. The museum, staffed by volunteers, was rich with artifacts. It is only open Wed - Sat 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM; closed on major holidays. $3.00 for adults. There was a fee for children, but I didn't take note of it. The grounds are open daily from dawn till dusk, but the museum is a definite must-see, so be sure to visit when it is open.
The weekend before Thanksgiving an annual reenactment is held on the grounds.
Camp Moore is 75 miles north of New Orleans, 60 miles NE of Baton Rouge, and 100 miles south of Jackson, MS. Taking exit 57 off of Interstate 55 - it is about a 5 minute drive. Very easy to find; located on Hwy 51.
