Beautiful, large, shady state park with great walks and trails. Stayed in 25 foot motorhome with no toad so plenty of room though suspect larger rigs with toads or tow vehicles might find some spaces a tad small. Most sites (at least in the 30-amp section--Hen House Ridge) were quite roomy and private. Sites in this section were all pull-through. Very good Verizon signal and plenty of TV channels via OTA antenna. Bath house clean but aged, with shower area lacking privacy. Overall, a really nice park. I definitely hope to return. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

Pull thru spots in Henhouse are small and will not handle long rigs. Views to lake are nice. Wifi very weak. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

Martin Dies Jr State Park is in south-east Texas near Jasper, TX. The park is on Steinhagen Reservoir. Many sites have lake views and access. Good hiking trails. We were in site 84 (50A electric and water) in the Hen House Ridge Unit on the south side of Hwy 190. Nice park. We've been here before and will return. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We parked our 31' 5th wheel in site 6 of Hen House. It was very quiet during the week, and we enjoyed a nice view of the slough. We were surrounded by tall pines and oaks.

The site gave us easy access to the slough, and we had no problems putting in or taking out our kayaks from the site.

Our only complaint would be that the restrooms, while clean, were old and in need of some attention. The water was hot, though.

Wifi is available at the camp office. We were getting around 20mbps through our Verizon LTE connections from the site. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is huge and most of the sites are large and spacious, however, the roads leading to and from the campsites are TIGHT. This park is not big rig friendly. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

East Texas is beautiful and we saw a deer a few times. Park was flooded from rains so many trails were closed. Park sites are monolithic poured tables and benches of concrete, a bit uncomfortable. Site paving is old asphalt and are mostly flat but have spots of vegetative growth on them. Some sites are not really laid out for RV's with tables and fire rings on the opposite side from the door. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Canoe and kayak rentals. Also had nature classes and activities going on. Construction of a new bridge across the lake requires you to sit and wait your turn as there is only one lane for both directions of traffic.

Nice state park. Very clean, freshly mowed, stayed at Hen House Ridge because other side is too overgrown and RV would have been hitting low branches. Wifi only at Ranger Station. Come on TPWD dept get with the program and put wifi around the park! We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

Host in site 67 is VERY NOISY! Otherwise would have rated this park much higher! With a more considerate host this park would be a wonderful, quiet place to stay. Showers are clean, but have torn, crummy curtains, if any at all. Rangers are polite and helpful, sites are far enough apart to be private. But again, noisy host (large voices and radio that can be heard 4 and 5 sites away!). We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Only thing that can improve this park is reservations by site number (which a pilot program is in place at Lake Livingston State Park) and sewer hook ups. We love this park. Hiking trails are always great and sites are beautiful and spacious. The kids love renting a canoe and cruising the lake. We also enjoy fishing from the piers for perch and bird watching. This is a great park. We will camp here again. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring break week with our 1,2,4 year olds. Clean, well maintained park. Several piers to fish from. Boat ramp with small floating dock. Playground had swings only. Everybody seems to kayak/canoe, but we didn't with our little ones. Lake entry accessible from most lakefront sites. Spacious level sites. Friendly staff. We will definitely go back and kayak/canoe when the kids get bigger. Guided kayak tour available on a schedule. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We found site 5 near a beautiful, reflective slough to be perfect for us and level. We're the only folks in this 36 site loop. The trails led us to numerous birds, but especially numerous woodpeckers. The ranger who checked us in gave us lots of information. We spent nearly a half hour with him and learned lots. Very few people are here after the "long weekend", so it's peaceful and quiet. The sloughs are filled with cypress trees and the woods with oak, beech, and pine trees. A real nature preserve filled with interesting flora and fauna. We'd come back! We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

While the park may accept "big rigs", not every site is "big rig" friendly. A gentleman next to me had trouble negotiating a 24 ft 5th wheel into a pull through site. Our site, #29, was very unlevel and since we were only there for one night, we ultimately settled on a little more nu-levelness than usual. The park does have a lot of trails, neat and clean, very friendly staff in the office. Quiet at night. Will definitely stay again. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall: This place has it all -- great lake swimming, plenty of trails and easy biking, nice smooth roads, bathrooms w/ showers (fair quality/cleanliness), fishing spots, canoes, decent spacing on sites. This is our favorite/ most-visited spot to camp. The Good: Lake Steinhagen is great for campers. Great sandy beach swimming. Plus a few piers and bank spots to fish from. Plenty of trails... great for hikes and bikes. Plenty of trees and shade over camp sites. Rent a canoe for $20 per day and explore the cove (gators here) and Steinhagen Island (geo-caching there). The shelters are great, and the camper sites are OK. The Bad: Not much to report here... Bathrooms/showers are not bad, but the shower drains always overflow so can be a bit nasty to wade through the water. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very pleasant campground, with mostly level sites and plenty of good hiking (and canoeing, if desired). There is no Wi-Fi, but Verizon reception is good. The only negative factor is that you have to visit the park headquarters on the south side of the highway before you can camp on the north side, which adds time and could be bothersome for a long rig. We camped at Martin Dies JR. State Park in a Motorhome.
