About Matagorda Bay Nature Park

When you can’t decide between the river or the beach, Matagorda Bay Nature Park has the best of both worlds. Located about 100 miles southwest of Houston, Texas, this park is perched where the mouth of the Colorado River feeds into the Gulf of Mexico, surrounded by magnificent marshes and wonderful wetlands. Whether you are camping or glamping, stopping by for the day, or participating in our youth summer camps, a great adventure awaits.

Because of its unique location, Matagorda Bay Nature Park is one of the top-ranked birdwatching destinations in the country with over 370 species sighted and counting. Take in miles of sandy Texas beaches while birdwatching or reeling in fish, or join us for some beachcombing and sandcastle building. The park offers a boat ramp and fishing piers. Cast your line and enjoy hours of incredible fishing, bringing in redfish, speckled trout, flounder, black drum and sheepshead.

Kayak rentals are available for paddling through the wetlands, the Colorado River or along the Texas Gulf Coast. Relax at the picnic areas, or take advantage of our beach chair, wagon and umbrella rentals. Kids and adults alike will have a blast playing on the nine-hole mini golf course and participating in special programs like beach crafts, ghost crab hunting and more!

You can recharge in one of the park’s unique vacation rentals – a classic Airstream camper or our beach bungalows with sensational views of the Colorado River. The park also offers full hookups if you wish to bring your own RV! Create your ideal getaway without ever leaving this one-of-a-kind park in Matagorda, Texas.

The outdoors are open at LCRA Parks.
