SABINE NATIONAL FOREST

Largest of this state’s National Forests, Sabine is situated along the eastern border of Texas, next to enormous Toledo Bend Reservoir. There’s one designated wilderness area, the 9,946-acre Indian Mounds Wilderness. Throughout the forest are many creeks, with several developed recreation areas located alongside the reservoir.

Activities: Only a few short hiking and nature trails are found here, although backpacking is allowed anywhere in the National Forest. Hunting and fishing are permitted in season.

Camping Regulations: Camping and campfires are allowed throughout the region, except near public use areas or where otherwise prohibited. No permits are required. Camping is limited to designated areas, however, during deer hunting season.

For Further Information: Sabine National Forest, Homer Garrison Federal Building, 701 North First Street, Lufkin, TX 75901; (409)639-8501.
