MUD POINT. Mud Point is a cape at the tip of a peninsula formed by Cox Bay to the west, Lavaca Bay to the southwest, and Keller Bay to the east, in eastern Calhoun County. It forms the northern point of a narrow strait between Lavaca and Keller bays; Rupert Point, about half a mile across the narrow waterway, forms the southern point of the strait. Mud Point consists of poorly drained soil, which is wet for long periods; the slowly permeable subsoil has a high shrink-swell potential, and the location is occasionally inundated by windblown seawater.
