(361) - 704 - 3070


The City of Mathis 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 San Patricio 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 rich history of Nueces River and all of its beauty. The Mathis area is an important part of the county’s history, as just a few miles away in Old San Patricio, pivotal points of the Texas War for Independence from Mexico were waged. 

Quality of Life

Many people who live in the central or eastern portions of the county have summer homes on the lake, which is great for fishing, jet-skiing, boating or simply floating. Huge catfish have been harvested from the waters of Lake Corpus Christi, and the quiet, community also attracts a healthy population.


The City of Mathis is the fifth most populated city in San Patricio County. As of the 2010 Census, the city’s population was 4,942, approximately 6.53% of the county’s total population.

  • Median Household Income: $26,010
  • Per Capita Income: $13,437
