Sabine National Forest is the smallest of Texas' four national forests, but you can find many amazing adventures there. The area's warmer temperatures make it a great place to watch bald eagles in the winter. As the weather warms up, bring your fishing pole to fish in Toledo Bend Reservoir, which borders this national forest. You will also want to go hiking to see if you can spot the endangered woodpecker that uses this national forest to build its nests. Fall is a fantastic time to visit as the oak and beech trees put on their beautiful fall colors. Regardless of the season, the best way to explore Sabine National Forest and the surrounding attractions is in an RV. If you do not have one, rent one on RVshare.com.
