Located in Covington, Louisiana, on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain, Emerald Forest is just above Interstate 12. Residents can count on an easy commute to New Orleans while affording them the opportunity to enjoy the quiet side of the lake. Festivals, culture, cuisine, music and art fill the Northshore and the moss draped rivers and bayous make this area an enviable place to live.
