Be sure you go during the right season. When I went it was very difficult find any birds there at all. It is very rustic.

During the spring northern migration I had the privilege of seeing hundreds of birds resting and feeding before continuing their journey north. There are wild berries as well as mulberry trees the birds were feasting on.

This is a sort of far off sanctuary along the extreme southwestern coast of Louisiana. Not a very big property but well situated along the migratory route. Good roads and can access with any type of vehicle. There are nice walking trails and sitting areas within the sanctuary. Nice bench seats under the live oaks which I found to be neat. The beach is within a short walk also. There you can always see shorebirds and related wildlife. This place is also near the other refuge/sanctuaries near the SW coast of La.

I enjoyed my visit here while I was birding in the area this spring. many birds come to roost here in the afternoons and it is a lovely place to walk around and see what you can find. Manageable area, not too big, but full of birds when I was there!

Not much to see in my opinion. I made a few stops but there wasn't much action. I've been to other wetlands and swamps that were more interesting.

went down to the coast for some birding....two days behind a dry cool front. Hoping to catch some early migrants. Not much luck in that dept, but, did manage a few interesting birds...Peveto held a surprise....two domestic, or domesticated Turkey. Literally chasing us around the parking lot for a handout. The largest, a Tom, jumped on the hood of my daughter's car, and really scratched it up badly. So beware Peveto visitors. That being said, this is a fab. place to bird, despite it it being practically being destroyed in a hurricane...it is making a decent comeback.The large , old oak trees, and other trees are great for migrants. There is a water feature, designed for the birds...mulberry, hackberry trees besides the oaks...The area offers other birding sites as well as great shore birding...only drawback is , there is only one motel in Cameron...closest other option for lodging is Sulphur,

My wife and I visited the first week in March, 2016, hoping to see some early migrants. We were disappointed, but not because of the little preserve, but because we failed to realize there wouldn't be anything there until the migration season. From the habitat, we could see there is potential for viewing migrants as they make their trips. All I can say with objectivity is there was nothing but a yellow-rumped warbler and a red-bellied woodpecker there in early March. However, if this place draws birders during the "in-season," I can say there would be a parking issue because both the parking and the habitat is very small.

This little gem is great for seeing birds and butterflies that are migrating. Use the facilities elsewhere before coming if you don't want to use a port-a-potty.

We have driven this route several times and had no idea this place existed. Even with following the directions on the BRAS page, we still missed it and had to turn around. The sign is parallel to the road and against the fence. It is easy to find if you turn on the road to Florida Beach. We heard lots of songs and saw movement but didn't get close ups of anything except the water birds. Nonetheless it is a lovely bird sanctuary and well worth spending time there. We'll stop on our next time through the area.

Katrina may have taken out the Visitor's Center but it left the trees, trails and coast. It's a great place for birding with lots of songbirds in the woods and shorebirds along the beach. There are often herons found in the little pond.
