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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
