San Patricio County is on the lower Gulf Coast in the Coastal Prairies region.  Sinton, the county seat, is just northeast of the center of the county sixteen miles north of Corpus Christi.

San Patricio County was established in 1836 by the Congress of the new Republic of Texas and covers 693 square miles of generally flat land with tall prairie grasses spotted by mesquite and live oak trees. Most of the county lies in the coastal plain, but in the far western area the surface is rolling with some caliche hills; elevations range from sea level to 200 feet. Soils are generally well suited for field crop and grass production.

San Patricio County has a mild, moist climate, with an average annual rainfall of thirty-one inches. Temperatures range from an average low of 46 degrees F in January to an average high of 93 degrees F in July. The average growing season lasts 303 days.
