The City of Mathis

The City of Mathis – population 4,942 – is situated on the far western end of the county, off of Hwy 37. Leisure and industry find a crossroads in Mathis, which like many of county’s communities, offers great water recreation.

Unlike other communities, however, Mathis, which is about 40 miles from the coast, is home to a freshwater lake, Lake Corpus Christi, and its accompanying state park. It is also home to the three county parks, which were created for residents and visitors to enjoy the Nueces River and rich history.
