General Information

Description - The refuge is divided into two management units, Gibbstown & East Cove Unit, based upon habitat types.

The Gibbstown Unit habitat consists of fresh marsh, coastal prairie and old rice fields. The Gibbstown unit provides excellent habitat for waterfowl, water birds, white-tailed deer, small game, furbearers, and many other wildlife species. Gibbstown unit is managed to provide natural foods for wintering waterfowl and other water birds.

The East Cove Unit consists of intermediate, brackish and salt marshes. It is an integral part of the Cameron Creole Watershed Project, a large marsh restoration project. East Cove is an important habitat for many estuarine marine organisms (shrimp, crab, menhaden, redfish, etc.) and also waterfowl and other water birds. Public use on East Cove includes recreational fishing, boating and wildlife observation. East Cove is accessible only by boat via Calcasieu Lake.

Location - Cameron Prairie is in Southwest Louisiana in Cameron Parish.
