Camden Airstrip is a small airstrip in Couva, Trinidad. Crop dusting aircraft use this airstrip; drag racing also takes place on the airstrip.

On 24 May 2011, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, at the one-year anniversary celebratory rally marking the election of her coalition government to power, announced that the Airstrip will be upgraded initially to a domestic airport to serve the Trinidad-Tobago airbridge.[1] If successful, the airport would be upgraded to a full-scale international airport.

If upgraded, the airport will be the third International Airport on the islands after Piarco International Airport in Trinidad and the Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson International Airport in Tobago.[2]
