About Lake Providence
Along the Mississippi River

Located just along the Louisiana-Mississippi border in Lake Providence, Lake Providence is a 1,380-acre water body in East Carroll Parish. Nestled in the Louisiana countryside, the U-shaped lake is surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and nature preserves.

Outdoor Recreation

As with most lakes, fishing and boating are commonplace on Lake Providence. Species such as black crappie, red snapper, southern flounder, and tuna populate Lake Providence's waters, making it a prime location for anglers.

Hunting and trapping are popular activities year-round. Town residents and lake lovers favor white-tailed deer, squirrel, and waterfowl for hunting, and opossum, beaver, and raccoon for trapping.

If you enjoy being in nature rather than chasing it, you can enjoy berry picking, camping, horseback riding, hiking, birding, and wildlife viewing.

Visit Jackson, Mississippi

Make the hour and a half drive from Lake Providence to Jackson, Mississippi, and enjoy the city's lively entertainment.

See the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, the Jackson Zoological Park, the Mississippi Children's Museum, the Mississippi Museum of Art, and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

Once you are finished with the museums, enjoy southern comfort food or barbeque at one of the many restaurants.

Enjoy Lake Providence

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