Bird Island Basin Campground rehabilitation starts August 18, 2014
The second part of a project to repair facilities and rebuild eroded shoreline at Bird Island Basin Campground begins August 18. Minor disruptions of activities in the immediate area may occur. None of the work should affect use of the boat ramp.
Bicycling is a popular activity in the park, but there are no bicycles for rent in the park. While riding on the beach is allowed, the park has no riding trails. Please use appropriate caution when bicycling to, from, or within the park and wear appropriate clothing and a helmet. There are no bike lanes along the highway leading to the park or over the JFK Causeway from Corpus Christi, so please be sure that your bicycle is as visible as possible with lights and/or reflectors, reflective tape or other reflective materials.
The fee for biking or walking into the park is $5.00, and the annual pass is $20.00.
