Overview

Bluffview Park is located on the southwest side of B.A. Steinhagen Lake, in Town Bluff, 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.

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

Younger anglers love the children's fishing pond within Magnolia Park, just 6.5 miles north. A Kid's Fish Day is held annually in June.

The road systems within nearby Magnolia Ridge and Sandy Creek Parks offer excellent family biking opportunities for 3-5 mile rides.

Facilities:

Bluffview Park is a year-round day-use area that offers one large group picnic shelter with electricity and water. Numerous individual picnic sites, some of which have shelters, are available on a first come, first served basis. Flush toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided.

A small store is located across the road from the campground with bait, fuel and ice.

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. The area boasts beautiful mature hardwoods, including cypress, sweet gum and red and water oak. Some areas feature stands of loblolly and shortleaf pine. Visitors have the opportunity to hunt, fish, hike and view wildlife in this extraordinary ecosystem.
