Sam Rayburn Reservoir is located around 110kms north of Beaumont in Deep East Texas. It is a 463 kilometre lake and happens to be the largest lake that is wholly located within the state of Texas.
The lakeÃ¢ÂÂs surroundings are not very developed, made up predominately of trees and rolling hills, creating a stunning backdrop. Swimming, water skiing and fishing are popular things to do, with largemouth bass, catfish and crappies being the most caught fish living in the lake.
There are a number of campsites and marinas on the shorelines of the lake, as well as the Rayburn Country Resort, which is home to a top notch golf course. Visitors that would prefer to stay dry can go hiking through the Sabine National Forest.
