Louisiana’s endless waterways are just one of the many reasons this state is so naturally beautiful. Of course, the Mighty Mississippi is the queen of the rivers in Louisiana, but one of its offshoots is another popular river for many locals to spend their days fishing, boating, and even swimming. What many don’t realize when they get into the water is that the Amite River is one of the most dangerous rivers in Louisiana, and there are some things you should know before diving in.
If you do decide to go swimming or tubing down the Amite River, it’s always a good idea to wear a life jacket. There are plenty of bodies of water in Louisiana that are much safer to splash around in, maybe consider one of those instead.
