This box is located near Salmen Scout Reservation, also known as Camp V-Bar. Some people also call this Camp Salmen, but this is technically incorrect, as Camp Salmen was the old Camp located near Slidell, LA. Please note that you will NOT need to enter the camp property to locate the box. Scouts are reminded to talk with their leaders before seeking the box since they will need to LEAVE the camp.
From the main gate, travel south along the roadway. You will reach a sign indicating a place a scout could practice the 12th point of the Scout Law. From this sign, cross the road and find another sign. From this sign, take a bearing of 210. Follow this bearing until you reach a tree line. You should notice a pair of crossed logs on the ground. The box is located beneath the logs. If you reach a wire fence, you went too far.
You might be able to locate maps to get to the camp at the following links:
