Quintana is a tiny town located in Brazoria County on the upper Gulf Coast of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 56 full time residents. The village is mostly known for being the site of Quintana Beach County Park. This 51-acre beachfront park has both day-use amenities and overnight facilities. The park features paved full-service RV campsites, cabins, campsites for tents, covered pavilions and picnic tables, grills, a playground, volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a recreation center complete with kitchen. There is also a lighted fishing pier at the park and a paved walking/hiking trail. Fees are $5.00 for parking from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Registered overnight campers are exempt. Activities at Quintana include swimming, fishing, surfing, birding, hiking, beachcombing and shelling. The remains of the Freeport Harbor Defense, which dates to 1942, are also inside the park. The beach at Quintana is called a "natural beach," which means it's maintained by tides and weather. At any given time there may be driftwood, and small to large amounts of sargassum seaweed and other plant life washed up on the beach. The beach is raked on occasions when there's an excessive amount of seaweed or debris.

Quintana Weather & Climate

The Southeast Coast of Texas has a subtropical humid climate. The coastal areas are warm most of the year due to currents of the Gulf of Mexico. It can get cold in winter if a strong front arrives - sometimes even causing snow at sea level. Summers are hot and humid. Rain in the coastal region is more abundant than in the inland region, and subtropical forests line the Rio Grande River. The wettest months of the year are April and May. Inland, it's drier, and ranches dominate the landscape, characterized by thick spiny brush and grasslands. Southwest Texas' position at the northwestern end of the Gulf of Mexico makes it vulnerable to hurricanes. Some of the most destructive hurricanes in history have impacted Texas, most recently Hurricane Rita in 2005, and Hurricane Ike in 2008.
