Jetty Park

Jetty Park is a county park where the Colorado River meets the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to access west beach on the other side of the Colorado or paddle up river, this is the place. Also a fun place to SUP when the conditions are good. Currents and waves at the mouth of the jetties can be dangerous, so don’t paddle out on a rough day. Watch out for boat traffic though as the Colorado River is an active boating channel for both recreational and commercial traffic.

Jetty Park can be a dangerous place to swim or wade. There is a no swimming zone that extends 400 yards to the east of the pier and jetty. Dangerous rip currents and undertows are almost always present in this area and you should never enter the water here. Additionally, currents in the river are variable due to tides. Use caution in this area.

Getting There:

From Matagorda drive south on FM 2031 across the bridge. Drive all the way to the end of FM 2031 where it dead ends into Jetty Park.
Coordinates: 28.5947877,-95.979953

Parking & facilities:

There is paved parking in the parking lot and parking on the beach. There are bathrooms,ย covered picnic tables and trash cans. Camping is allowed. There is no usage fee for Jetty Park.

We have a beautiful beach and hope everyone enjoys it. But please don’t leave your trash behind so we can keep it beautiful!!!

Someone mentioned the gulf was full of jelly fish due to tropical storm last week, any word if matagorda beach has any? Planning to go tmrw. Went once last summer and the water was full of Portuguese man of war jellyfish so trying to avoid that again
