Birding in Cameron Parish is truly extraordinary. In any given year, over 400 different species of birds can be spotted in this southeast corner of Sportsman’s Paradise. The coastal marshlands and chenier ridges host migratory birds, waterfowl and wading birds. Keep your eye out for hawks and osprey in the fall and winter months and look for neo-tropical migrants, such as warblers, vireo and flycatchers, in the spring and fall. Whether you’re an expert or novice, birding in Cameron Parish is an experience you can’t miss.

Fishing and crabbing permitted year round. Cast netting allowed seasonally. Non-motorized watercraft may be hand launched into Impoundments 1A and 1B from this site for recreational paddling in freshwater marsh.
