As one of the last remaining undeveloped, contiguous tracts of wildlife habitat in the region, the refuge provides many opportunities for public use. From waterfowl hunting in the marshes, to fishing the bayous, to birding and wildlife photography, to watching the sunset over Lake Pontchartrain – there is something for everyone.

The Bayou Lacombe Visitor Center, at the Southeast Louisiana refuge headquarters in Lacombe, features interactive exhibits highlighting the wildlife and habitat of eight, regional national wildlife refuges. The Visitor Center is located on the 90-acre site of a historic botanical garden which offers two miles of trails and walkways.
