Raccourci Old River

Acreage: 
4,900 Acres

Raccourci Old River, located in Pointe Coupee and West Feliciana Parishes, was historically the main channel of the Mississippi River.  In 1848 it was separated as a State of Louisiana Project directed by Captain Shreve.  Currently, it is an active oxbow that maintains a hydraulic connection to the main river.  The lake receives inflow from the river from the northeastern end of the lake via connection termed “The Narrows”.  The lake has an average depth of 25 feet, with a maximum depth of 75 feet, at pool stage.  The lake's shoreline is largely undeveloped and is lined with numerous cypress trees.  The lake has a mixed usage consisting of recreational angling, hunting, water sports, and other leisure activities.
