Fort Macomb is a 19th-century fortress in Louisiana, on the western shore of Chef Menteur Pass. The fort is adjacent to the Venetian Isles community, now legally within the city limits of New Orleans, Louisiana, although some miles distant from the city when first built and still a considerable distance from the main developed portion of the city.

The HBO series True Detective was filmed on location at Fort Macomb. The fort portrays "Carcosa," where the crimes at the heart of the series were committed.

Just FYI: Fort Macomb is not correctly positioned on the Roadtrippers map. The fort is not nearly as remote as the map here suggests. Finding it doesn't seem like it would be very difficult. I can't speak on whether or not gaining access is difficult (yet).
