Lake Pontchartrain Lighthouse

Lake Pontchartrain is one of the world's largest natural lakes. Lake Pontchartrain is roughly oval in shape, about 40 miles wide from east to west, and measures about 25 miles from north to south. The lake is wide but for the most part not especially deep, averaging some 12 to 14 feet in depth. Some channels for shipping are kept deeper through dredging.
