Enjoy golfing, fishing, bird watching, swimming,hiking, shopping, and days on the beach!
You'll find plenty of things to do and see when you stay at Gateway to the Gulf, our RV park near Port Lavaca and Port Aransas, Texas. Join us for fun days of golfing on our local courses, fishing and boating at the Coleto Creek Reservoir, and games on the beach at Matagorda Island. You can explore our own historic town of Victoria, taking in the museums and historic homes, or spend some time bird watching at Lake Texana State Park.
When you stay at Gateway to the Gulf, you'll be just a few short miles from the sparkling coastline and soft, white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast. Imagine spending the whole day sunbathing, beach combing, swimming, and just relaxing under the Texan sun. Build sandcastles with the kids, try catching a fish dinner from one of the piers, or tame some waves with your surfboard. Or, for a great day of fishing, head to the Coleto Creek Reservoir for largemouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, crappie, blue, channel and flathead catfish, and bluegill.
If you'd rather stay dry, then Victoria supplies ample entertainment. The lively downtown features a diverse selection of shops for browsing, including antique stores, art galleries, and specialty shops, as well as cafes and restaurants to please any palette. You can take the self-guided historic homes tour, visit the University of Houston campus, or see the Nave Museum and Children's Discovery Museum. The area surrounding Victoria features opportunities for hiking, biking, birding, wildlife viewing, and water recreation.
We have dozens of lakes and rivers in our area that are ideal for canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and fishing. Stay with us at Gateway to the Gulf and make day trips to see historic missions or the Fannin Battleground State Historical Park. You can visit the animals at the Texas Zoo, tour the Museum of the Coastal Bend, or do some antique shopping in nearby Goliad. There's so much to explore on the Texas Gulf Coast!
