3 Mile Lake

3 Mile Lake (Google calls it Spring Bayou) is a large marsh area on the backside of Matagorda beach. This is a good area for birding and fishing. It is accessed from the Beach but typically requires a 4Γ—4 vehicle.

Getting There:

You will need a 4×4 vehicle in order to drive to this site. MAC can provide shuttle service if you do not have a 4×4. From Matagorda head south on FM 2031 over the bridge. Drive past all the houses then take a left on Dunes Road. There will be a sign that says “Public Beach Access”. Dunes road will dead end onto the beach. Take a left and drive approximately 1 mile and you should see 3 Mile Cut open up to your left. Drive toward the cut. This will lead you back behind the dunes and to good access sites. Stay on obvious trails in this area. It is illegal to drive on any vegetation on and behind the beach.

Parking & Facilities

There is plenty of parking on the beach and next to 3 Mile Lake. There are no other facilities.

I enjoy coming to Matagorda beach but I think it's funny you can't have an open fire on a beach. But we follow the rules.

Nice job Clay Bishop. Hold onto you hat!

I hope everyone remembers to not leave trash on the beach!

Dude, you really don't like subarus. AWD drive is fine, just air down your tires. The lighter the vehicle the easier it floats on the sand

Thanks for the report great job πŸ‘πŸ‘
