Lake Shamaree Bar

Parish: Rapides

From “Forest Hill, Louisiana: A Bloom Town History” by Chere Coen:

“If the soldier could, he would visit the nearby local tavern, the Wigwam that was located along the banks of an old mining pond” in Forest Hill, wrote Roger Butter in ‘Camp Claiborne: Only the Memories Remain.’ The Wigwam later became the Lake Shamaree bar, once frequented by George Jones and Willie Nelson.”
