Snipe is an unincorporated community in central Brazoria County, Texas, United States. It was formerly a distinct community. The location of Snipe is 3 miles (4.8 km) southwest of Angleton on the Union Pacific Railroad and Oyster Creek. Raymond Weems, Snipe's first postmaster, named Snipe after a facetious reference made about the place by his father's hunting partner.

A post office operated in Snipe from 1921 to 1949; the post office served the Retrieve Prison Farm (now the Wayne Scott Unit).
