Sabine National Forest

Entry sign for Sabine National Forest

Sabine National Forest is a 160,873-acre property stretched out along the western shore of the Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Sabine River, against the Texas-Louisiana border. This is an area forest in pine-hardwood woodlands and has seen extensive logging in the past.

Among the game animals found on Sabine National Forest are white-tailed deer, squirrel, woodcock, dove, wild turkey and quail. The forest offers much-needed habitat for the threatened Bald eagle and for the endangered Red-cockaded woodpecker. Toledo Bend Reservoir is the scene of much water recreation in season with campgrounds, hiking trails and boat ramps scattered along its shore.
