Andy martin's book lists "about 5 areas inside the levee", plus another area inside the levee plus 2 small manmade areas on the levee as the contenders for Jefferson Parish. In looking at Topozone a few months back, I could only find three, which I visited today.

Area 1 is at Ninemile point, just south of the Carrolltron Bend of the Mississippi River and is accessible by parking on the side of River Road, crossing the levee, and walking around a fenced in but open dock area and the unfenced areas around it.

Area 2 is reached by heading south on River road. Just past Klein Street on the right, pull off the road and hop over the levee on the right. Go into a fenced and abandoned looking dock area to reach the CoHP area.

Area 3 is reached by continuing east on River road about 1/2 mile to a slight bend in the road. Hop over the levee and find the CoHP in some posted trashy woods.
