Camp- Mooring site on Pass A Loutre WMA
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Bverdin ~
I have the Head Quarters complex located on a 1000 foot by 300 foot strip of land that is between Dennis and Johnsons Passes. It is at or about 29°07.0734 ~ N. Latitude ~ 89° 12.4584 ~ W. Longitude. One of the camping sites is the Loomis Pass #2 site is at or about 29° 7.3806~ N. Latitude ~ 89° 10.7220~ W. Longitude.
The Official LDWF web site at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/wma
lists the Pass A Loutre WMA as having 5 designated tent-camping areas on the area and 3 areas which have been designated to allow the mooring of recreational houseboats. Prior to mooring; however, houseboats must receive a permit from the Department. More information can be obtained by calling 337-373-0032.
I have located some of the sites from the rough map that is included on their web site, but to get some of the others, I will need to contact the LDWF during their hours of operation.
I am working on the others locations and will amend this posting when I can get the info from LDWF.
Unless otherwise specified, all positions are stated as Degrees, minutes and thousandths of minutes (DDD,MM.mmm) and were determined using WGS 84 Datum. All bearings and courses are stated in Magnetic degrees.
On October 1, 2012 I received the following information from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries:
All coordinates are in decimal degrees and datum NAD83
Headquarters N29.11789 W89.20764
South Pass Campground N29.10537 W89.23427
Cadro Pass Campground N29.09091 W89.21090
Loomis #1 Campground N29.12818 W89.19299
Loomis #2 Campground N29.12301 W89.17870
Southeast Pass Campground N29.13903 W89.14870
My calculations indicate that the positions converted to WGS 84 Datum and Degrees, Minutes and decimal minutes are:
Headquarters N29°07.0734 ~ W89°12.4584
South Pass Campground N29° 06.3204 ~ W89° 14.0562
Cadro Pass Campground N29°05.4546 ~ W89° 12.6540
Loomis #1 Campground N29°07.6908 ~ W89° 11.5794
Loomis #2 Campground N29° 07.3806 ~ W89° 10.7220
Southeast Pass Campground N29° 08.3418 ~ W89° 08.9220
Thank you for your patience.
