St. Charles Bay is a long narrow bay opening off Aransas Bay between Blackjack and Lamar peninsulas (at 28°12' N, 96°56' W). The bay is entirely in Aransas County and is, for the greater part, within the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. St. Charles Bay may have been called Laguna del Bergantine by the Spaniards. Burgantine Dam and Lake are at the head of the bay.
