What makes Erwin Pond genuinely unique is its proximity to the famous Lake Pontchartrain. Less than an hour's drive from Erwin Pond Lake is the much larger Lake Pontchartrain, which borders Louisiana's Gulf Coast. So, the ocean is not much farther south.
Lake Pontchartrain is the largest lake in Louisiana and encompasses 630 square miles.
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 Erwin Pond Lake.
