About Us


Hoppers Landing is a family owned and operated "poor man's marina" offering boat launching, RV parking, camping, wade fishing, beachcombing, and convenient source of ice, cold drinks and snacks. In addition, we have a few fishing cabins which can be rented for a night or a week and the only public showers for miles around. We are located just 3 miles north of the Aransas Wildlife Refuge main gate, winter home of the rare Whopping Crane, many other birds, deer,  javalina hogs, and alligators. 

Carlton and Nada Hopper have owned and operated Hopper's Landing since 1970. They raised their family here, their grandchildren were raised here and their great grandchildren are being raised here. This has been their home since they married in 1947. Just ask them and they can tell you where the fish have been biting, how to contact a fish guide and  where to see some of the natural wonders of the Texas Gulf Coast.

Hopper's Landing was founded in 1940 by Bob Hopper, Carlton's father. Initially, Hopper's :Landing offered fishing and hunting guides as well as a full service restaurant. In the mid-1950's the emphasis turned to oil field support services and commercial shrimping. In the 1990's, Hopper's Landing returned to its roots, concentrating on the fishing and recreation aspects of this wonderland and creating a relaxing atmosphere to fish and get away from the daily grind. Come relax with us!
