|Toledo Bend Reservoir, Sabine County, Texas ||Added : Feb 16, 2015 |
|Click Here for more info and photos ||Updated : Feb 16, 2015 |
Running north to south along the Texas and Louisiana border on the Sabine River, Toledo Bend Reservoir is one of the largest bodies of water in the United States. The lake covers 185,000 acres, standing as the largest reservoir in Texas. Here, residents take advantage of the abundant opportunities available like camping, swimming, picnicking, hiking, hunting, birding, and especially fishing, boating, and golfing.
Because of its enormous size, Toledo Bend transcends state lines. Though the dam that created the reservoir is in Newton County, Texas, near Burkeville, the entire reservoir is not in Texas. The reservoir goes up the river through the Texas counties of Sabine, Shelby, and Panola and occupies parts of Louisiana as well. It finally ends up near Logansport, Louisiana, 65 miles north of the dam. On the west border of the reservoir in Texas, much of the land is undeveloped and belongs to Sabine National Forest. All this space offers a plenitude of recreational opportunities along the lake and lakefront homes for sale.
Fishing and boating are two of the many activities that attract lake homeowners. The 1200 miles of shoreline created by Toledo Bend makes for a diverse landscape where a variety of fish make their homes in the waters, including striped bass, crappie, and catfish. Boats can access almost any part of the lake from the docks and marinas all along its shore, and a number of boat docks provide easy and quick boat access along the shoreline. In the north section of the lake, choose from several marinas in either Texas or Louisiana, such as Bill’s Landing or Geronimo Village. Plenty of marinas spot the middle and south sections of the lake, too. The body of some of the lake is obstructed by numerous trees, stumps, and logs, thereby creating a great habitat for fish and wildlife. However, specific boat lanes have been cleared of such obstructions to allow for recreational watercraft. For more information, visit the San Augustine County or Sabine County chambers of commerce on the Texas side or the Sabine Parish Chamber of Commerce on the Louisiana side.
Surrounding Texas and Louisiana towns provide plentiful golfing resources, just a short drive from your lake-view cabin. Jasper, Texas, offers courses that are within a stone’s throw from Toledo Bend as well as the nearby Lake Sam Rayburn. On the lake’s east side, Many, Louisiana, has a cluster of lakeside clubs. But those who think those short distances from the lake are still too far might consider relocating to one of these exciting golf courses. Serious golfers should check out GolfHomes.com for more information.
Homes for sale at Toledo Bend Reservoir come with plenty of open space to get out and play. Golfers, fishers, and boaters should not pass up this huge lake with its huge opportunities for rest, relaxation, and recreation.
Toledo Bend is a man-made lake created in 1967 and is known for world-class bass fishing. The lake is located on the Texas-Louisiana state line, northeast of Jasper, Texas, and covers 185,000 acres and has 1,200 miles of shoreline. Toledo Bend Reservoir offers wonderful fishing, camping, hiking, and outdoor activities on a lake surrounded mostly by undeveloped land, much of it timberland and much of that in the Sabine National Forest.
