“Truly a great place at the end of Texas on the Gulf.”

Overall Rating

I believe this is a state facility with very nice campsites for RVers with asphalt roads and gravel pads. Water, elec. and sewer sites. Riverfront sites best by reservation. Located at the mouth of where the Colorado river enters the Gulf, just south of the neat little town of Matagorda, now a tourist/sportsmen's town. Full but limited service available here with larger cities 40 miles north.

If your timing is right, twice a year local cowboys herd cows thru the C/G to and from the wild island for the summer on the west side of the river. Great photos of the earlier cattle drive in the visitor center.

The never ending beach east is just a short drive (or walk) from the C/G. Your beach experience can be as communal or remote as you want to make it.
