There are four national forests located in the Pineywoods of Texas that stretch from the urban landscape of Houston to the Louisiana border.

Counties that contain national forests are: Angelina, Houston, Jasper, Montgomery, Nacogdoches, Newton, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Shelby, Trinity and Walker.

Two national grasslands are located north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and are located in Fannin, Montague and Wise counties.

Whether it’s boating, fishing or swimming in the numerous lakes and reservoirs, or camping off the beaten path, the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas offer opportunities for solitude and reflection.
