The gently rolling hills of Angelina National Forest are a great place to go hiking. Head to this location during the winter to see bald eagles making their winter homes. This forest is home to many other birds, especially the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker. The bird population in this forest increases dramatically during spring and fall migration. Parts of this forest sit on the north and south ends of Sam Rayburn Reservoir, where national bass fishing tournaments are often held. This forest is also a great place to go stargazing, either around the lake or in its more isolated areas. Since the forest is divided into seven sections, you will want to bring your RV, which makes it easy to move from one location to the next when you choose to do so.
