Sandy Creek Park is an incredible recreation area in southeast Texas with facilities for camping, fishing, swimming, boating, picnicking, and birding. It's nestled among the trees of a tall pine forest on the southeastern shore of B.A. Steinhagen Lake. There are 78 sites to choose from, and almost all of them have electric and water hookups. Sparky can enjoy Sandy Creek Park and Campground too, but be sure to keep them on a leash and always clean up after them.
Campsites are situated on four loops, and each site has a campfire ring, a covered picnic table, and a concrete parking pad. One of the loops has primitive, tent-only sites, while others accommodate pull-through RVs. Campers note the restrooms are clean and well-kept, and Sandy Creek Campground also has drinking water and a dump station. For big groups, there's also a day-use picnic shelter available.
Campers can visit Sandy Creek Park, where they'll find a one-mile lighted walking path, sports courts, and playgrounds. There are several boat ramps and docks near the campground, and boat rentals are also available. Anglers can try their hand at catching largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish from one of several fishing docks around B.A. Steinhagen Lake, or use the trail system within the park for hiking and bike riding. During your stay, you can also head to nearby Martin Dies Jr. State Park for more hiking, fishing, swimming, and canoeing opportunities, as well as three paddling trails that range from 3 to 16 miles.
Alligators have been spotted near the water and campground, so keep an extra close eye on small children and pets during your stay. Guests are also reminded not to disturb fire ant nests that are found around the campground. Sites at this pawesome campground range from just $10 per night for a primitive campsite to $25 for a site with full electric!
