From stunning natural views to entertaining things to do, Port Lavaca is a hidden gem with tons to offer families. The area has countless family-friendly activities, ensuring your children will remember your getaway for a long time to come. 

Explore the Local Wildlife

Getting outside is one of the best kid-friendly activities in Port Lavaca. Stretch your legs and count how many different kinds of birds you can see fly overhead within the Port Lavaca Bird Sanctuary. This space is home to hundreds of bird species, from terns to gulls. 

You could also head down to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge to walk along its many trails or drive its 16-mile auto tour to catch a glimpse of its diverse wildlife. Taking your family to these areas will provide countless memories and educational experiences. 

Sign up for a Wild West Adventure

Travel back through time to watch real-life cowboys rope, brand and move cattle at the Dos Vaqueros Ranch Resort, located south of our location. Enjoy eating authentic foods from the back of a chuck wagon, telling campfire stories and listening to old Western music that will make you want to dance your boots off beneath the breathtaking Texas landscape.

Relax at the Beach 

Watch your kids build sandcastles while you kick back on the shores of Matagorda Bay. The Port Lavaca area is home to numerous beaches, perfect for families with children of all ages. Lighthouse Beach and Magnolia Beach are two of the most popular spots for a relaxing day beneath the sun. 

Catch a Movie at the Twin Dolphins Cinema

There's nothing better than a handful of popcorn as you recline to watch a movie on the big screen. The Twin Dolphins Cinema is the go-to theater in the area, just a short drive across Lavaca Bay from our campground. They regularly rotate their film screenings to keep things fresh and have a concession stand stocked with tasty treats for the perfect movie snack and drink. When the weather's not great, you can rest easy knowing you have a backup plan to keep the kiddos entertained in Port Lavaca.
