About Boles Field Campground

Boles Field is located in the northern portion of Sabine National Forest in eastern Texas, near the border of Louisiana. The area centers around a cemetery for fox hounds established at the turn of the century, and some of the world's most well-known hunting dogs are buried here.


With the Toledo Bend Reservoir just six miles miles away, Boles Field offers an opportunity to visit one of the nation's most regarded freshwater fishing sites. The National Forests and Grasslands in Texas provide excellent opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. East Texas lies in the path of warblers, vireos and other species of neotropical migrants, and birders look forward to the spring migration.


Uniquely developed for large gatherings, Boles Field has an amphitheater which holds approximately 100 people and group shelter that accommodate family events. Both are for day-use only.

Campsites are first-come, first-served and equipped with water and electric hookups. Horses are allowed in the campground.

Natural Features

The campground sits in a pine and hardwood forest near the Toledo Bend Reservoirs, two large east Texas lakes. Wildlife is abundant, and the area is a hot spot for migratory birds.

6 bucks for Water and Electric !!

Nice location with easy access. All the sites are $6 with water and Electric. They have a large shelter house and Amphitheater you can reserve with an additional fee of $25. The bathrooms could use a broom but they have nice hot showers.
