How about trying canoeing or kayaking one of the many quiet arms of Toledo Bend during the 4th holidays. Experienced canoers and amateurs alike can paddle into our rivers and creeks.


Great white sand bars line canoeing paths and provide a place for relaxing along the way as well as camping, fishing and swimming. There are around 100 or so river/creek miles suitable for canoeing in Toledo Bend Lake Country, including Sabine River, Toro Creek, and Kisatchie Bayou.


If you don't have a canoe or kayak, check out a couple of these service points.

A trip down the Sabine or Toro offers an abundance of sandy beaches, good fishing, swimming, wildlife, and botanical beauty.
