The Toledo Bend Reservoir, the largest manmade lake in Texas, offers plenty of ways to have fun along its 1,200-mile shoreline. Fishing, hiking, camping, and boating are just a few recreational options.
Located on the eastern part of the Sabine National Park, the reservoir has public and privately run recreation areas including campgrounds, lodging, and other activity centers in Boles Field, East Hamilton, Haley’s Ferry, Indian Mounds, Lakeview, Ragtown, Red Hills Lake, Trail Between the Lakes, and Willow Oak. The reservoir itself teems with largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and white and striped bass. The Toledo Bend community also hosts fishing tournaments, exhibits, festivals, and many other activities.
Each of the four communities in Toledo Bend North has distinct characteristics:
- Center in Shelby County commemorates its rich and interesting history in community events held almost every month, like the Watermelon Festival in July and the East Texas Poultry Festival in October
- Shelbyville is perfect for those raising a family as half of its population is made up of married couples
- Joaquin’s appeal lies in its promise of simple living in a small town filled with energetic local businesses, and being the school district considered exemplary by the Texas Education Society
- Milam, located in Sabine County, is surrounded by the lush Sabine National Forest, making it perfect for vacationing with your family and friends at Red Hill Campground, Austin College Forestry Camp, or Chambers Hill Lookout
