Visit the Undiscovered Paradise
in San Jacinto County

Nestled within the piney woods of the Sam Houston National Forest, San Jacinto County is one of the best kept secrets in Texas. Bring the entire family for a fun-filled visit you will never forget - you may never want to leave! If you love nature, heritage, or culture, you will find lots of activities to experience. You will feel right at home and will be welcomed with open arms by the friendly folks in San Jacinto County.

Lake Livingston, the second largest lake in Texas, is 39 miles long and seven miles wide at it's widest point. The lake covers 93,000 acres and has been dubbed a "Water Wonderland".  With 450 miles of shoreline, Lake Livingston is never crowded. The lake is a perfect place to relax or to enjoy the day boating, jet skiing, fishing, or swimming.

Among the towering pines and hardwoods within the Sam Houston National Forest, you will experience nature at it's best as you wander the trails beside rivers, lakes, creeks, and streams meandering through the forest. 

Hikers may observe wildlife such as white-tailed deer, river otters, rabbits, armadillos, turkeys, raccoons, squirrels, or foxes in their natural habitat.

During your visit in the national forest, be sure to stop by one of the red cockaded woodpecker clusters which were developed to protect this endangered species. Bald Eagles, Ospreys, and many other birds are sighted in the Sam Houston National Forest.

At Double Lake Recreation Area, enjoy camping, canoeing, and paddle boating. Be sure to bring your rod and reel and take advantage of the fishing there as the bass, bream, and catfish are abundant.

If you enjoy unique shopping, the historic shops in downtown Coldspring offer antiques, one-of-a-kind gifts, handmade jewelry, and local art. You will feel as though you've stepped back in time when you visit the shops and the Jail Museum in Old Town Coldspring.

San Jacinto County provides an opportunity to experience nature as you've never known it. You'll find it to be one of the best places to escape the daily routine and have a chance to rediscover yourself and your family. Take the time to come on out to meet the friendly folks of San Jacinto County!
