This park is tucked away from the main highway and roads but is close enough to restaurants and other amenities. Folks are friendly and it is a quiet atmosphere. All the spots are pull throughs. This looks to be an older park so the widths are a bit smaller but manageable but the price makes up for any misgivings.
This was the perfect place to rest after a long 3 days of travel with a sick pooch. They have everything you would need and more. Disc golf, paint ball, hiking, bike trail, and of course fishing. If that isn’t enough if your there at the right time they have a rodeo complex next door.
This location is absolutely awesome. Right where the Colorado River flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The fishing is awesome and the sunsets are spectacular! There isn't any shade, so I think it's best to go in the fall or spring. We had a full hookup site on the Colorado River, and it was huge and pretty. Thank goodness we had our Clam screenroom with us, because the mosquitos got really bad at times. An easy hike to the mouth of the Gulf and also a nice, pretty hike to the beach. There are a lot of prickly thorns, so need to be careful walking dogs, as they tend to pick up thorns easily.
• Quick and friendly check-in
.• Large parking area that is rig-friendly for check-in.
• Knowledgeable park personnel
• Nature center with interactive exhibits and gift shop
• Well maintained. Daily we saw the camp hosts working diligently, even hosing down and scrubbing bird poop from campsites.
• Saturday morning 1.5 hour guided Gulf beach walk($5/pp) by Paige and Whitley. Paige knew her“stuff” as she was pelted continuously with questions and she never missed a beat!
• Complimentary early Saturday morning coffee and pastries.
• Along the Colorado River but you can hear ocean roar where the river meets the Gulf of Mexico.
• Level concrete parking pad surrounded by grass. Back-ins and drive-thrus.
• Two sewer hook-up outlets.
• Large concrete picnic table.
• Very nice and clean toilets/shower building in an elevated building accessible by a ramp. Must have code to enter.
• Laundry facility in toilet/shower building with code entry.
• Nice Colorado River fishing piers with fish cleaning tables with freshwater spigot and a super pier over the beach/ocean.
• Primo sunsets
• Bay City, 20-minute drive, for the closest Walmart, HEB and other retailers and restaurants.
• LCRA $6 on-line reservation fee.
• Absolutely no trees or vegetation between sites which equals NO SHADE and NO PRIVACY.
• Ocean“breeze” made it impossible to deploy trailer awning.
• No fire pits, but if you bring your own with a screen cover, you may have a fire, if you bring wood as no wood is sold at this park.
• NOT A DARK SKY FRIENDLY CAMPGROUND due to way too many street lights throughout the campground, along the river bank and on the fishing piers. This would be a 5 star campground if there was more darkness!
• Complimentary LCRA WIFI was weak and unreliable.
• When the ocean"breeze" died down and the humidity was up, we were attacked by swarms of mosquitos which required us to heavily apply repellent in mid-February
• Not much in the town of Matagorda, basically a fishing village, and of those businesses, not many operating in mid-February.
It’s super hot and no shade. We’re from NC and never have been to Texas. So it’s insanely hot. The campground and pool were very nice. We didn’t eat at the restaurant so I don’t know if it’s good or not? The only downside is if your camping with no bathroom. You’ll need to be close to the bath house. There’s not your typical bath camping houses.
Well maintained campground with friendly people clean restrooms and showers. Fishing right outside your RV. Walk to the beach or there is access to drive on the beach I would advise a 4wheel drivevehicle. I’ve been to this campground a few times.
