Matagorda Bay Nature Park is a 1,600-acre park and preserve at the mouth of the Colorado River on the Matagorda Peninsula. LCRA developed the park to provide recreation, education, wetlands preservation and economic benefit to the region. The park has about two miles of Gulf of Mexico and two miles river frontage and hundreds of acres of coastal marshes and dunes. It is one of the best birding areas in the nation. LCRA acquired the property in 2001 as part of its commitment to preserve natural resources for future generations and to provide science education, recreation and nature tourism opportunities.

Great site for RV camping with level concrete pads and full hook-ups. Bathrooms and laundry facilities are excellent. Walk to Matagorda Beach. Try to reserve a site on the river in the South loop for easy beach access and spectacular sunset.
