Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015   Season Dates


San Augustine Park is set along the Ayish Bayou tributary on the shores of Sam Rayburn Reservoir.

In spring, take advantage of excellent birding opportunities as neotropical birds like warblers and vireos pass through the lake en route to the Gulf of Mexico.

Natural Features:

With more than 114,000 surface acres, Sam Rayburn is the largest man-made lake that is completely within the boundaries of the state of Texas. The reservoir is fed by the Angelina River, a major tributary of the Neches River.

The piney woods region boasts native flora like orchids, insect-eating plants and scores of animal species.


The lake is a highly popular destination for boating and fishing. Game fish include largemouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish, but it is the abundance of bass, which inspires more than 300 annual tournaments.


San Augustine features 100 sites with electric and water hook-ups. Among the many amenities are a group shelter, swimming beach, volleyball and basketball courts and an interpretive trail.

Nearby Attractions:

From the eastern edge of the lake, hikers can embark on a 28-mile trail that heads east to the Toledo Bend Reservoir.
