The Louisiana Brigade Winter Camp, also known as Camp Carondelet, was the site of an American Civil War military camp during the winter of 1861-62. It is located east of Manassas Park, Virginia and about 1 mi south of Bull Run. The site was used by five battalions of Louisiana soldiers of the Confederate Army, whose distinctive buttons (bearing a pelican emblem) have long been found by relic hunters. Obvious remnants of the camp include the remains of 25 huts, some of which have been damaged or destroyed by road-building activity through the site, and chimneys representing the locations of an estimated 50 more.

The camp location was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
