Overview

Sandy Creek Park is located on the southeast side of B.A. Steinhagen Lake between the towns of Woodville and Jasper in southeast Texas. The lake provides a great getaway for fishing, boating, picnicking, camping and birding.

Natural Features:

The lake lies in the heart of the East Texas Pineywoods, a beautiful region known for its pine uplands, bottomland hardwoods and pine-hardwood mixed forests, which provide habitat for a wide range of wildlife.

White-tailed deer, squirrels, rabbits, red and gray fox, Bobwhite quail, and numerous species of ducks, geese, waterfowl and songbirds make their home in the area.

Recreation:

B.A. Steinhagen Lake is a prime location for boating, canoeing, fishing and wildlife viewing. Several parks with boat ramps and docks are scattered around the lake, including facilities within Sandy Creek. Boat rentals are also available.

Fishing is a popular pastime. Largemouth bass, catfish and crappie are the primary sport species found in the lake. Fishing docks are located within the park.

The road system within Sandy Creek Park offers excellent family biking opportunities for 3-5 mile rides. Campers enjoy the park's volleyball court and children's playground.

Facilities:

Sandy Creek Park is open year-round and offers numerous campsites, 71 of which have water and electric hookups. A group day-use picnic shelter is also available. Flush and pit toilets, showers and a dump station are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

Nearby Martin Dies, Jr. State Park offers hiking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, biking and wildlife viewing opportunities. The Walnut Slough, Sandy Creek and Neches Paddling Trails meander from 3-16 miles on the park's backwater sloughs, the open lake and the swift Neches River.

The Angelina-Neches/Dam B Wildlife Management Area is located at the north end of the lake, covering nearly 13,000 acres.
