    About Becky Lake
    On Pearl River Canal

    Becky Lake is a small pond on the western side of the Pearl River Canal. It is located in St. Tammany Parish in the state of Louisiana, near Talisheek. Becky Lake is more of a landscape feature and creates the perfect backyard atmosphere.

    The Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge

    Just five miles down the road is the beginning of the Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge. It is considered one of the most undisturbed wild swamplands in the country and contains a swathe of unique plants and animals. In total, the refuge covers 36,300 acres in Louisiana and Mississippi.

    Visitors enjoy exploring the swamps, and a significant draw for many is the remoteness of the refuge. Residents will need a boat to travel to some areas of the park, but there are raised walking bridges in some places.

    Visit Lake Pontchartrain

    You can make the quick drive to Lake Pontchartrain, which borders Louisiana's Gulf Coast, encompasses 630 square miles on the state's southern border. The ocean is not much farther south, and large cities, such as New Orleans, sit on this lake's shore.

    This lake is technically an estuary because it is open to the Gulf of Mexico and has a mix of salt and freshwater. It is the perfect place to observe marine life, birds and catch a variety of fish due to its shallow waters. You can even sight dolphins, sharks, and other unique ocean life at times.

    The lake is open to swimming, fishing, boating, and other recreation. It is a great spot to experience big lake living while being able to return to the tranquility of Bateman Lake.

    If you cross the long driving bridge that connects the northern portion of Louisiana to the southern peninsula, you can be in the exciting city of New Orleans.

    Lakes, Rivers, and Wetlands

    Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or a vacation rental, Becky Lake is an excellent choice.
