Hours:

The boardwalk is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Please note that boardwalk admission closes at 4:30 p.m  (Last boardwalk admission is one hour before closing time.)

All visitors must be off the boardwalk before the closing time unless a special program is being conducted by the Corkscrew staff. One day a month from October through March, we offer  "Corkscrew After Hours". This is the only time that we allow visitors on the boardwalk after dark.  This regulation was established to minimize the impact on wading birds that roost or nest near the boardwalk. 

This regulation applies each month of the year. Vehicles found in the parking area after the closing time may be towed at the owner's expense.

Please leave your pets at home where they are comfortable. For everyone's safety, we allow only service animals on the boardwalk.

Admission is valid for 2 consecutive days.  Ticket prices include self-guided access to the boardwalk and Blair Audubon Visitor Center.
