Gulf Islands COVID19 Adaptive Recovery Plan

In accordance with the White House’s Opening America Up Again guidance and input from public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control, Gulf Islands National Seashore will begin implementing an adaptive recovery plan to increase recreational access to the park in three phases. The dates below were developed by the NPS US Public Health Office through an evaluation of gating criteria for each area based on expected visitation during each phases of the recovery process.

How to Use the Chart Below:
Pick the area you're interested in visiting. If the area is currently open (see the second column), click the link in the fouth column to see which facilities and services (campgrounds, restrooms, exhibit areas, fishing piers, picnic areas, and etc.) are available at that area during its current phase.

 

Entrance fee collection has resumed in all fee areas of the park.
