One of the best kept secrets about the Angelina National Forest is Bouton Lake Campground. Completed in 1963, this area provides visitors with primitive camping, fishing and hiking, amidst bottomland hardwoods and cypress trees.
Whether in an RV or tent camping, visitors have seven sites to choose from, and each has a picnic table and campfire ring.
Visitors should bring drinking water as no water is provided at the site. Toilet facilities are available within a short distance of each camping site. A waste/dump station is available for RVs at nearby Caney Creek. There are no sites with electrical hookups.
Visitors can hike along the Sawmill Hiking Trail to Boykin Springs (5.5 miles) or fish in Bouton Lake, or Little Bouton located a few hundred feet away. In consideration of other visitors, no off-road vehicles may be ridden in the campground.
This is a "Pack it In - Pack It Out" area; please take your refuse home for proper disposal. No garbage facilities are available at this campground.
Follow Highway 63 east from Zavalla for 7 miles; turn right (south) on Forest Road 303 for 7 miles to Bouton Lake.
