East Texas covers a lot of area. What part of East Texas?

In NE Texas, I like Caddo lake State Park.

In SE Texas I like Martin Dies State Park.

If you want to wander down toward north of Houston (north of Conroe) try Cagel Recreation area. It is in the Sam Houston National Forest. After the previous two dry summers, they did loose a lot of trees.

Most of the sites at Cagel will not work for a satellite dish. You are far enough away from the Houston stations that they do not work well at all for off -air signals.

2x Tyler State Park
2x Martin Dies State Park plus there is another one on the south end of the lake but can't remember the name.
2x Mill Creek up at Rayburn.
Any place around Conroe is nice too.

Forget right now Mill Creek @ Sam Rayburn. Staff all cut loose at gov shutdown. Couple volenteers just staying there. Maybe in near future will return to normal. Son went last wkend. Tyler State park one of the neatest I've stayed at and trees out the gazoo. Loved it there.
