This disconnected oxbow lies alongside the Mississippi River and includes sufficient lodging and amenities for the visiting angler. It's one of the largest natural lakes in Mississippi. At approximately 700 years old, it may also be one of the country's oldest lakes. Boat ramps are located at Okey's and Cypress Gardens on the south side of the lake.
