  • BIB Campground Rehabilitation begins March 17, 2014

    A project to repair the facilities and rebuild the eroded shoreline in the Bird Island Basin Campground will begin March 17, 2014. Minor disruptions in the immediate area may occur. Please note that none of the work should affect the use of the boat ramp.

Public Transportation

There is no regularly scheduled public transportation to or from the park. Given the distance from Corpus Christi (approximately 23 miles) and from the nearest airport (approximately 40 miles), cab fares will be expensive. Several car rental agencies serve the Corpus Christi area and are likely to be the least expensive alternative. For more information on your options, please call the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1.800.766.2322.
