East Matagorda Bay Paddlesports Park @ Rudacell’s Cut
The Bay City Port Authority purchased the land around Rudacell’s cut. They have opened a small parking area and launch to the public for paddlecraft only. This is a good area to paddle out to East Matagorda Bay.
From Matagorda head south on FM 2031 across the bridge. After you pass Full Stringer Lodge, look for a parking area on the left, and a large sign.

Parking & Facilities
There is a good amount of parking here, but please do not block the launch area. You should unload your kayak and gear and move your vehicle out of the way so other paddlers have easy access.
