Copano Bay State Fishing Pier, sometimes called Copano Bay Causeway State Recreation Park, is on State Highway 35 at Copano Bay, six miles north of Fulton and forty-one miles northeast of Corpus Christi in Aransas County. It is a six-acre park with a fishing pier, available for day use only. The park has group facilities, restrooms, picnicking, fishing, boat ramps, swimming, a museum exhibit, and a historic structure. The pier was established in 1967 when the Texas State Highway Department (later the Texas Department of Transportation) built a new causeway and turned the old causeway over to the Parks and Wildlife Commission, which made it into a lighted fishing pier. The park is operated as a concession rather than by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. It is open twenty-four hours daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day and from dawn to early afternoon the rest of the year. There is a small user fee charged. The pier is three miles south of Goose Island State Park on Park Road 13, where full camping facilities are available.
