Bird Sanctuary


Lake Rosemound in the Tuncia Hills Area

Nestled in the Tunica Hills just south of the Mississippi State line, is a quiet beautiful residential community of Lake Rosemound, Louisiana. Homes and camps are built on some 2250 acres of hilly woodlands rich in Louisiana hardwoods.
Lake Rosemound in the Spring

These homes are built along the steep inclined shores of two connected lakes, with depths up to 33 feet. The lakes are spring fed and are man-made by a huge levee which also serves as a road bed. The lakes are excellent in fishing for bass, catfish, bream, and sac-a-lait. Water sports such as knee-boarding, wake-boarding and skiing are designated for one lake. The other lake prohibits any type of skiing. To use the lake you must be a member of the Lake Rosemound Association which presently has approximately 235 members. The lakes are strictly patrolled.
