CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Park rangers over at the Padre Island National Seashore say they will reopen tomorrow.

The Padre Island National Seashore will open at 6 a.m. Thursday, August 20, 2020.

You can be able to access most areas including North and South beaches, Bird Island Basin day-use area and boat ramp, as well as Malaquite beach.

However, park rangers announced the developed campgrounds at Malaquite and Bird Island Basin will remain closed for now. But primitive camping will be allowed on North and South beaches and overnight parking may resume at Bird Island Basin boat ramp.

The dock at Bird Island Boat ramp is being rebuilt and the dock will not be available until the work is finished.

Visitors are reminded to be aware the park is continuing Hurricane Hanna repairs. If you visit the Padre Island National Seashore, you're encouraged to drive safely in the park and watch out for workers and equipment.
