TPWL Sells River Property
Posted on Nov 7th, 2012

In 2003, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. purchased approximately 2.5 acres of land located at the north end of River’s End on the San Bernard. It was to provide an area for storage of materials of its Artificial Reef Program and shipping to areas of the Gulf. After obtaining the property, the mouth of the San Bernard was silting-in making boat traffic difficult. 
 
In Feb. 2009, the river mouth was dredged open by the Corps of Engineers.
 
In 2011, a feasibility study of the property was done. The report stated that the river continues to silt-in and continued dredging would be necessary to use the property for which it was acquired. No alternative  use of the land could be decided.
 
In May 2012, the property was officially put up for sale by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission. It was sold recently to the River’s End bait camp.
