The Largest Lake In Louisiana, Lake Pontchartrain Is A Beautiful Piece Of Living History

Louisiana has an abundance of waterways. From the Red River down to the Atchafalaya River Basin, the Bayou State is peppered with waterways of all shapes and sizes. Growing up in Louisiana, you’ve probably spent much of your life on the water. We learn to fish, crab, kayak, and boat from an early age, and we’re always looking for that next river or lake to explore. Lake Pontchartrain is the largest lake in Louisiana, and it’s certainly worth a road trip.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
