“One of our absolute favorite places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We have been here several times. It has become a "tradition" to come here for my friend's bday. The park is clean. The have some nice trails. The park is fairly large. We stay in one of the shelters with amenities, which is nice because there is heat and a/c. It's beautiful park & we LOVE it!

“Aww the memories..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The park is conveniently located and pretty clean. They keep the trouble out of the park and the rangers are good about patrolling the area. I grew up at this State Park and always been known to me just as Dam B. At times the lake can be low and hard to navigate. But this park is well worth the visit. I just wish they would add some more air conditioned cabins.

“Fantastic State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

What a pleasant surprise tucked away in east Texas. The camp sites had plenty of space and almost all of them had a lake view. We had a blast on the canoes but the most enjoyable thing we did was ride the different bike trails. They were perfect even for our 5 year old daughter. Very friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely go back.

“A very nice state park in East Texas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is our first time at Martin Dies, Jr. State Park. We live in Houston and it is a nice getaway from the city. The park is nicely laid out between RVs, tent campers and screened shelters. We stayed during the weekend of spring break and although we didn't have any reservation, we were able to get a screened shelter with a nice view of the lake behind our shelter (site No.28). The site and the shelter are spacious. Inside the shelter, there is a picnic table and still enough room for our 2 queen and 1 twin air mattresses.
We enjoyed the relaxing trails near our site and the park also rents bikes, canoes and fishing equipment.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the bathroom is pretty small. There are 2 shower stalls which are quite tiny, and the shower curtains are too short and not wide enough that it lacks a bit of privacy. No hooks to hang towels or clothes. Toilet stalls are quite tiny, too, and there is no handsoap. BUT, the staff keeps the bathroom pretty clean throughout the day.
Other than that issue, it is a great park and we would definitely love to come back especially during winter and spring.
