Honey Island Swamp

PEARL RIVER, LA

Taking its name from the nearby Pearl River, this friendly little town on the easternmost edge of St. Tammany Parish was originally called Halloo, allegedly mimicking the greeting called out by loggers in the area. Pearl River began as a logging and railroad town and still feels rural today, visited mostly for the large state refuge located about a mile east of town. Pearl River Wildlife Management Area, popular for fishing, kayaking and birding, encompasses forest, waterways and the pristine Honey Island Swamp.
