Boykin Springs Recreation Area, built in 1938 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), surrounds a 9-acre spring-fed lake and offers camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing or just getting in touch with nature.
Boykin Springs is known for the spring-fed creek that meanders through the campground and for the picturesque longleaf pine stands that surround the greater area and provide habitat for the endangered red cockaded woodpecker.
The Sawmill Hiking Trail winds through the forest to the Neches River and the Aldridge Sawmill Site, ruins of a turn-of-the-century sawmill.
