In the Middle of the Woods
The Toledo Bend reservoir's northernmost county is Shelby, followed by Sabine and then Newton at the southernmost tip. The northern area is characterized by sandy shores and as you go further south, the landscape changes somewhat to rolling green hills. What remains constant is the abundance of trees and vegetation.
This is a place where nature remains largely undisturbed. Surrounded by the 160,609-acre Sabine National Forest, the area has been protected for a long time and has been cherished by generations of East Texans who value the ecological diversity of the region.
