Welcome to the Town Bluff Project
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District welcomes you to B. A. Steinhagen Lake, Town Bluff Project (formerly and still commonly known simply as “Dam B”), located midway between Jasper and Woodville, Texas, in the heart of the East Texas Pineywoods. Our mission: to assist Sam Rayburn Reservoir in providing flood control to the Angelina & Neches River basins in Southeast Texas, supply water to the Lower Neches Valley Authority and the Beaumont area, produce a clean source of electric generation, and to offer some of the best fishing, camping, and birding in Texas, all at just a little slower pace.
