Matagorda Madness

It is that time again!
Time for Madness on the Gulf Coast!


Come join us on the Gulf Coast this winter for Matagorda Madness 2017 which will be held again at the Matagorda Bay Nature Park.  Although we begin “formally” on Thursday, November 30, we suggest you make your reservations for Wednesday night through Saturday night (arriving Wednesday, November 29 and departing Sunday, December 3, 2016) in order to attend all of our "festivities".  (We will have an “Early Bird Special” on Wednesday night for those who are there early.)

While you are here, you can explore the area, go birding, fishing, kayaking and attend some of the great LCRA Nature Center courses. The weather this time of year historically is 49-69 degrees and is the second lowest month on the calendar for rainfall.

“As of January 15, 2013 reservations can be made online for the Matagorda Bay Nature Park at Reserve America LCRA or by calling 1-855-392-7638 and require more than 48 hours’ notice. To check availability within 48 hours of your arrival call the park directly at (979) 863-7120 or toll free at (800) 776-5272 x. 4778.”

Once you have your reservation please REGISTER with us so we know WHO'S COMING.

If you are planning to attend some of the LCRA Nature Center courses and offerings, or dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant we need you to SIGN-UP so we can properly plan.

The AGENDA for this year's rally is available on line and will be updated if necessary.  We are looking forward to another great time with our friends on the third coast.

This will be my last year for coordinating Matagorda Madness.  I will be asking for someone new to step up and lead the Madness in 2018.  jee
