Hidden Lake Trip
I have this idea in my head of a trip that I would like to take. I just don't know where it is but I know it has to exist. What I want to do is backpack into a lake and setup a base camp, stay put right there for 3 days or so. Take small day trips or maybe do some fishing. Most of just relax and enjoy the wilderness. I want this lake to be isolated and only accessible by hiking to it. Does anyone know of such a place?
Of course the closer to Louisiana the better and would anyone be interested in making the trip with me?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
This is exactly what I want to do. I'd like to find a place within 2 hrs. from Baton Rouge, but I'm having a hard time finding such...Are you still planning this?
I know of about a bazillion places that exactly fit that description. Unfortunately, none are near LA or MS.
Now I know of a nice river you can hike into and base camp in AL, with lots of waterfalls if it has been raining at all.

I would imagine there's a farm pond somewhere near you that would match that description. It might not require a hike, but you'd probably be the only one you see there. I imagine the fishing is probably better there too.
Do a little recon on Google Earth and see what you can find pond or lake. Then check out property tax records for the owners contact info and get permission to camp / fish.
