Bird Island Basin lies along the Laguna Madre Bay. It is open to both tent and RV camping. It has gravel sites and vault toilets. It provides access to the bay for fishing, camping, windsurfing, and kayaking. The relatively calm waters of the bay and the nearly constant breeze make Bird Island Basin one of the top windsurfing destinations in the country.
ADA Access: Bird Island Basin Campground has mostly flat, paved surfaces. There is no amphitheater, showers, payphones, electrical hook-ups, or flush toilets. None of the facilities are ADA accessible.
