Pintail Wildlife Drive

Located on Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge, this three mile drive loops through moist soil wetlands which have been manipulated by the US Fish & Wildlife Service to provide a feeding/resting habitat for wintering waterfowl. You are able to view a variety of wildlife such as alligators & birds year round. During the winter months, you will be amazed by the variety and quantity of waterfowl included geese, mallards, roseate spoonbill and great blue heron. The southern side of loop usually boasts many alligator sightings, assuming the weather is good.

The drive includes an area to stretch your legs and get up close and personal with your surroundings on a fully accessible half-mile boardwalk over freshwater marsh, including viewing scopes and interpretive panels.


Open year round, sunrise to sunset.
