United States Department of Agriculture WELCOME! The breathtaking beauty of the great outdoors is evident throughout the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas. Outdoor Adventures The Texas Pineywoods stretch from the urban landscape of Houston to the Louisiana border and are home to the Angelina, Davy Crockett, Sabine and Sam Houston national forests. These four national forests have an amazing diversity of plant and animal life scattered across gently rolling hills, hardwood bottomlands and world-class fishing lakes. North of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex are the Lyndon B. Johnson and Caddo National Grasslands. Purchased by the government in the 1930s, these lands are made up of abandoned farms and ranches that suffered severe soil erosion, but are now a thriving testament to proper land management. Whether it’s boating, fishing and swimming in the numerous lakes and reservoirs, or camping off the beaten path, the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas offer an experience like no other. Coral bean adds a splash of red to the forest.

The Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, manages more than 675,000 acres of public land in Texas consisting of four national forests and two national grasslands. The four national forests in Texas are the Angelina, Davy Crockett, Sabine and Sam Houston. The national grasslands are north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and include the Caddo and the Lyndon B. Johnson. The National Forests and Grasslands in Texas provide a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities with 25 developed recreation areas, nearly 200 miles of hiking trails, scenic areas, wilderness areas, an off-road vehicle trail and more than 100 miles of horse trails. Camping reservations for the four national forests may be made by calling 1-877-444-6777, or on the web at www. recreation.gov. A daily use fee is charged at most areas. Campgrounds generally include tent pads, picnic tables, parking spurs for trailers, lantern posts, campfire rings, potable water and toilets. Some areas also have showers, electricity, swimming Forest Service beaches and boat ramps. The Davy Crockett and Sam Houston national forests are located where the pine forests of the Deep South join the blackland prairies. The result is a mix of eastern and western species of birds and other wildlife found nowhere else in the state. The Sabine and Angelina national forests are on the shores of Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn Reservoirs, two large lakes featuring fishing and other water sports. Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston offer water-related outdoor recreation opportunities on and near the Sam Houston National Forest. Primitive camping is allowed anywhere in the general forest area, except during hunting season or unless posted otherwise. All campers are encouraged to practice “leave no trace” camping, leaving an area in the same natural condition in which it was found. During Spring, Caddo National Grasslands visitors can enjoy the spectacular experience of viewing migratory neo-tropical birds from Central and South America. The display of these winged visitors to the Caddo compete with the springtime show of wildflowers. Photographers and nature lovers agree, spring in Caddo is magnificent. In the Lyndon B. Johnson National National Forests and Grasslands in Texas R8-RG 479 February 2019 Grasslands, recreation is a big draw to the 6.3 million people who live just minutes away in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The TADRA Point campground is the trailhead to a 75-mile network which includes five different loop trails and attracts equestrian enthusiasts from accross the state. These trails cover land where once the Chisholm trail was used to move huge herds of cattle northward and the Comanche people roamed. Black Creek Lake, with its adjacent campground and huge oaks, is popular for fishing, as well as tent camping and boating. 2 National Forests & Grasslands in Texas Angelina National Forest This map is meant to serve as a general guide and does not show exact boundaries or all roads.

United States Department of Agriculture National Forests and Grasslands in Texas Hunting Guide 2018-2019 Hunting Season Texas is home to four national forests that stretch from the urban landscape of Houston to the Louisiana border, and to two national grasslands located north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. White-tailed deer is the game of choice in Texas and there’s no better place to bag that trophy buck than in the national forests and grasslands. From mid-September to the end of January is prime hunting season and all hunters and those accompanying them must wear daylight fluorescent orange at any time when hunting, except when hunting turkey or migratory birds. A minimum of 400 square inches of fluorescent orange must be visible (144 square inches on both the chest and back, and a daylight fluorescent orange cap or hat.)

Rains and flooding have damaged many roads in the forests and grasslands. While most roads have been repaired, some remain impassable and are closed. Check with the Ranger’s Office to make sure your favorite hunter camp is open. Hunting season is one of the busiest times in the forest, and safety should always be a primary concern. Visitors should check their surroundings and be aware of the possibility of falling limbs or trees. Remember, being in the woods is great, but you are responsible for your own safety. When strong winds kick up, head to a clearing away from potentially falling trees. Place tents and park vehicles in areas that will not be hit by falling trees and limbs. Some other safety precautions include:  Much of the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas are remote, and medical assistance may not be readily available. Cell phones do not work in many areas of the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas. Visitors should take adequate food, water, first aid supplies and other equipment appropriate for the conditions and expected weather.  Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) use on the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas is limited to the multiple-use trail on the Sam Houston National Forest. Off-road use of motorized vehicles of any type is prohibited.  All hunters and those accompanying them must wear daylight fluorescent orange when hunting, except when hunting at night or when hunting turkey or migratory birds. A minimum of 400 square inches of fluorescent orange must be visible (144 square inches on both the chest and back, and a daylight fluorescent orange cap or hat.)  Anyone camping or hunting in the Angelina, Davy Crockett, Sabine or Sam Houston National Forest or the Caddo National Grasslands must camp in designated campsites or developed recreation areas from Sept. 1 to Feb. 1.  When the danger of wildfires is high, make sure all camp fires are in an Be Aware, Be Safe  Trees can fall without warning.  Be aware of your surroundings.  Wear blaze orange in the woods.  Make sure campfires are extinguished properly  Remember, your safety is your responsibility. area at least three feet in diameter cleared of all flammable material, and are properly extinguished.  Hunters using Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) must purchase the $48 annual hunting permit from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to hunt deer, turkey, small game, waterfowl and feral hogs. Wildlife Management Areas in the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas include the entire Sam Houston National Forest, Alabama Creek WMA in the Davy Crockett National Forest, Bannister WMA in the Angelina National Forest, Caddo WMA in the Caddo National Grassland and the Moore Plantation WMA in the Sabine National Forest.  Regulations vary by county so hunters should refer to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Official Hunting Guide and the Public Hunting Lands booklet for details.  Portable deer stands are allowed in national forests and grasslands but are limited to 72 hours in one location. To prevent damage to trees, the stands must not be nailed to trees. When hunters do not remove their deer stands, it causes damage to forest land and creates an expensive, time-consuming cleanup.  Do not park near gates or in areas that would block roads.  Visit the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas website at www. fs.usda.gov/texas and click on the Hunter Camp Maps link for more information.
