Matagorda Madness 2017?

Can anyone give me some info on this rally? Dates, location, host, number of trailers registered, how many trailers can register, if there are still sites available,cost, when registration can start, etc....? I have seen nothing about this one yet.

I've never attended due to preparations for Christmas; however, here is some information from the website. mfrvg.com has information on all Texas rallies.

Bryan, Matagorda is one rally you won't have a problem registering for. There has historically been plenty of space. Just keep an eye on the link posted above and they'll let you know when you can sign up. It's held in December, usually the first weekend. I think the camping fees we paid last year were something like $20 a night. Last year had some inclement weather, but the one before that was perfect. On the Texas Gulf Coast, you never know.

Here are some photos from last year.

If you go early, you might catch a cattle drive including crossing the Colorado River. More cattle drive photos.

Cattle drive sounds cool to see - any idea when, where, etc... I plan on getting to the campground on Wed 11/29 but could be that way a day or two earlier to see this.

The campground host told me that they don't announce it because they don't want a crowd - the owner of the cattle is concerned about damage to people & vehicles.

It is scheduled for after the end of Hurricane season. They let the campground know because the drive crosses the river at the southern end of the visitor center. Last year it was on November 22nd...

Any word about the condition of this campground since the hurricane? I see that reservations are available again and it is no longer showing as closed.

I sure would call the park before traveling since most everything was destroyed or flooded out by Irma...I wouldn't expect them to be any different............

Called the campground today - spoke to a very nice lady there - she advised they are not damaged and are currently open for business as usual - very little was done to them by the storm even though the eye passed right over them.
