Lowery’s Camp Albert Pike Open for 2011 Season


 


We just got word from the folks at Lowery’s Camp Albert Pike that their store and rental cabins ( they have 7)  are open for the 2011 season.  Lowery’s Camp Albert Pike is a family owned and operated business ( for more than 50 years!) on the Little Missouri River, located just inside the Ouachita National Forest, the oldest national forest in the South. In the spring, the Little Missouri is a popular target for canoes and kayakers.  And for those into fishing as in the spring, the river is stocked with rainbow trout.
The area, ( which is named after Albert Pike, a Confederate General) is rich with history of Indians and settlers. The Caddo Indians lived and hunted in the area for many years before the settlers came and homesteaded the area. Evidence of Indian life is still being discovered at archeological digs near Winding Stairs. Arrowheads and flint chips are plentiful in the road beds and trails.
Lowery’s Camp Albert Pike is located at 2857 Albert Pike Road , 5 ½ miles north of Langley on Hwy 369. Call Jesse
Lowery at 870-356-3964 or visit www.campalbertpike.com for more details. Lowery’s Camp Albert Pike is not U.S. Forest
Service property-it is privately owned. For more details on the current status of the Albert Pike recreation area following the flood last summer, call the folks at the Ouachita National Forest at 501-321-5202.
