This place is amazing. Right in the middle of oil refineries and industry, its a gem for birding. we saw 6 species of raptors in the first 20 minutes and were serenaded by meadowlarks the whole time we were there. A word of caution, however, the map is not accurate since the spillway was opened in 2019. not really a problem because its all flat and you can see far, but there are pools and wet spots and the dirt roads on the map are not there any more, at least not that we could see.

When the Bonnet Carre' Spillway is flowing as it has been for most of the Spring and Summer, it is an impressive waterfall from the Mississippi River into a corridor of marsh headed towards Lake Pontchartrain so that the Mississsippi will not overflow its banks near the city of New Orleans. So powerful is the flow of water from the River into the spillway that fish (especially Chinese carp) who try to return to the river cannot leap above the flow of water.
In those months and years when the spillway is not flowing, one may actually drive a car across the spillway where the car would be, otherwise, under about ten feet of water.
The spillway is an impressive man-made marvel which has several times saved the City and has provided a great show for people to enjoy.

When the Mississippi river is high and there is a threat of flooding, the corps of engineers open the spillway gates to relieve pressure from the levees in and near New Orleans ... river water flows into Lake Pontchartrain at an amazing speed .. but what's deceiving, as you drive over I-10, you'll see water flowing freely in the direction of the lake .. it looks like it would be many feet deep, but in some areas it is only about ankle deep. So as you're driving over that part of I-10 when the spillway is closed all you'll see is marshland (and swamp land, too) The difference is Swamps have trees on soggy ground, while marshes are just soggy ground without trees.

Many folks drive over this key resource without giving it a second thought. It offers many scenic opportunities and lots of fishing or other waterspouts activities into Lake Ponchartrain. From a flower sing prevention perspective, it does offer some pressure relief from the MS River on the levee banks, but only marginally so. When opened, it diverts only several thousand CF/M of river water into the lake (the river flows at several million CF/S when high). It does have a negative affect on the lake by adding freshwater to a saltwater lake. It's an neat drive on River road, and there's a lot to see by driving US 61 and getting off into the flood plain.

While driving up River Rd (the road along the river on the east bank) you can drive through the Bonne Carre Spillway. There are a few parking places where you can stop and get out and look over the Spillway and out to the grand Mississippi river. You may also drive through the actual spillway where there is a spot to fly radio controlled airplanes, with a picnic table and a port-o-let.

This is the flood gate that was built to protect New Orleans when the Mississippi River gets too high. They open the gates to divert the water from being too high when it reaches New Orleans, thus saving the city from river flooding.
