Eeny, meeny, miny, moe! You might as well flip a coin to pick which campsite you’ll stay at when visiting Martin Dies Campground because they’re all loaded with amenities, activities, and awesome. The campground is split up into two groups, the Hen House Ridge Unit and Walnut Ridge Unit. At the Hen House Ridge Unit you’ll find multiple fishing piers and cleaning stations, 3+ miles of hiking trails, restroom and shower facilities, picnic areas, and diverse wetlands out the whazoo. Swamps and sloughs in Texas, who knew? 43 sites have a picnic table and water (the basics), 33 sites are equipped with picnic tables, water and 30-amp electric hook-ups (kinda fancy), and the remaining 23 sites are decked out with all of the previous plus 50-amp hookups (super fancy!). In the Walnut Ridge Unit, 11 sites come with a picnic table and water, and the other 68 with picnic tables, water and 50-amp hook-ups.

Martin Dies has a wide variety of different types of campsites. We chose a fairly open spot right on the water's edge. We were glad we did because the sunset views were awesome, and there was a breeze that kept the bugs away. We went on a bike ride down to the campsites in the wooded portion and the bugs were awful. The kayak dock looked very peaceful, and you can rent them there. However, certain times of the year I would bet the mosquitoes would eat you alive.

The only weird part of our stay was when people drove up two sites over and set off fireworks for over 20 mins (illegally). THIRTY minutes later a ranger showed up on a golf cart saying that she heard someone might be shooting a gun. 30 min response time for gunfire?!?

Camped here a few years ago. It was great. We saw plenty of gators!

Ive only been in July on two separate occasions and the campground was basically abandoned. We had no one camping near us and had tons of amazing trees to keep us shaded. We went canoeing while there and there is easy access to a boat launch. It can get pretty warm so you can rinse off in the showers in the bathroom facilities that were always kept up with. Though right along Caddo Lake the waters are warm so they offer great relief from the hotter days. Opportunities to see deer, ratcoons, opposums, squirrels and owls. It was always a fun trip and has beautiful sunsets along the water.
