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, paddle up river or fish the shoreline, this is the place. There is a beach on the river side that is great for fishing, or launching a kayak. You can also fish the surf between the jetties. Currents and waves at the mouth of the jetties can be dangerous, so don’t paddle out on a rough day and don’t swim in this area. Also watch out for algae on the rocks, it is very slippery.¬†

Jetty Park can be a dangerous place to swim or wade. There is a no swimming zone starting at the western jetty that extends 400 yards to the east of the pier. 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, covered picnic tables and trash cans. Camping is allowed. There is no usage fee for Jetty Park.

Is there a route map for it?

What annual is it now? Maybe 17 or 18?

Hi...will you have another beach report any time soon? We are visiting next week and have not been able to get our SUV on the beach for at least a year. We have a four wheel drive now and are in hopes we can get on the beach next week. Thanks!

Do they still have the fireworks show after the Matagorda Lighted Boat Parade?

I remember when we went , fun !

Jason wish we could go!!
