The Pearl River forms the border between Louisiana and Mississippi and offers some scenic paddling, especially the section that runs through the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area. The river widens as it enters Louisiana and splits into multiple channels. This section of river starts at Lock 1 on the northwestern side of the wildlife management area and follows a river channel south past lots of white sandbars and wooded terrain. The area is very rugged and full of wildlife, including gators. There are additional take-out spots locate downriver that can be used to lengthen the trip and explore more of the area if desired.
