Louisiana Lakes and Rivers Map

About the map

Louisiana Map Extent

This map displays major rivers, bayous, and lakes of Louisiana like Lake Pontchartrain and Borgne. In general, the rivers of Louisiana flow into the Gulf of Mexico.

Two rivers on the east side of Louisiana carve out the border with its neighboring states. It’s the Mississippi River and Pearl River that shares a border with Mississippi. But on the west side, it’s the Sabine River sharing a border with the state of Texas.

Lake Pontchartrain is the largest lake in Louisiana at over 400,000 acres in size. In fact, it more than doubles the next largest, the Toledo Bend Reservoir, along the state of Texas. Finally, Caddo Lake and Bayou D’Arbonne Lake are the next largest lakes, both larger than 15,000 acres in area.

  1. I have a problem, my best friend and I, as teenagers, were brought by her dad to go water ski-ing every summer and I was just learning how so he would bring us down the Natalbany River since it was so smooth and perfect to slollium(ski on one ski, I am so sorry for the spelling). I can’t find on a Louisiana Waterways Map where the Natalbany River is, could you please help me to locate this River and possibly point it out on a map? We went down the Blind River to get to it but ai dont see the Blind River listed either. Please HELP Sincerely, Kristina Holcombe
