|Formed by an ox-bow of the Tchefuncte River, Lake Emfred is one of the many treasures found within Tchefuncta Club Estates. The lake was named Emfred to honor EMma and AlFRED Suter the original owners of the land that is now the Estates. The lake forms a natural harbor with a seven-foot channel into the Tchenfucte River. Because it is privately owned by TCE, the use of Lake Emfred is reserved solely for the homeowners of the Estates.
Shaded by cypress and pines Lake Emfred provides many ways for Estates residents to enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings. In the park area near the lake, parents and children gather to romp on the playground equipment. A picnic and bbq area along the shoreline offers beautiful views to be enjoyed while eating. The boat launch in the park provides access to lovely Lake Emfred, the Tchefuncte river, Lake Ponchartrain and wherever the wind and water may take you.
