About Lake Maurepas
Louisiana's Second-Largest Lake

Located in southeastern Louisiana is the state's second-largest lake, Lake Maurepas. It is just west of Lake Pontchartrain and sits in between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Lake Maurepas is made of brackish water and encompasses over 15,000 acres in size. The lake receives freshwater input through four river systems: Blind River, Amite River, Tickfaw River, and the Natalbany River. This lake is connected to the larger Lake Pontchartrain by a small channel.

Many Recreational Opportunities

Fishing, swimming, and boating have long been a favorite on Lake Maurepas. The lake's large size makes it the perfect place for water sports, and the brackish waters make for an exciting fishing spot.

The Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Area is another nearby fishing spot for catching sunfish, crappie, and largemouth bass.

Family fun can be found by enjoying the lake's golf course, marinas, and campgrounds.
