St. Mary’s Bayou

St. Mary’s Bayou is a large marsh area. You can spend all day exploring here. This is a great site for birding & fishing. When the winds are high, this is a good site to paddle as there is some protection from the wind. Take a GPS as it is easy to get lost in the maze of bayous.

Getting There:

From Matagorda head south on FM 2031 across the bridge. The trailhead is on the east side of the road just past Snapper’s Restaurant and Bar.
Coordinates: 28.66398, -95.96236

Parking & Facilities:

There are no bathroom or other facilities at this site. Park on the west side of the road on the shoulder and do not block any driveway entrances.

For those of us that have an all wheel drive mid size suv. Where would be the best place to set up for beach play for kids? We come out several times every year but recently traded in our truck so no 4×4 this year...

Has the entrance to the public beach access been plowed so you can actually get your car on the beach? The last few times we have tried (we do not have four wheel drive) the sand was too deep to even get our car on the beach thru the public entrance.
