Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Texas-Louisiana Border
Toledo Bend Lake stretches for miles along the Sabine River as the largest man-made lake in the south, forming part of the boundary between the states of Texas and Louisiana.
Visitors to Toledo Bend are attracted by boating, fishing, skiing, camping, hiking, golfing and other recreational activities in the area. RV resorts, campgrounds, resorts, restaurants, marinas, and motels are all available along the 1,200 miles of shoreline of the reservoir.
Bassmaster Magazine has selected Toledo Bend Reservoir as the top fishery in the United States. Toledo Bend ranked above 230 potential lakes after the magazine conducted research and personal interviews with anglers from around the U.S.
This massive 185,000 acre lake is a project of the States of Texas and Louisiana, and has both recreational and power generation benefits.
Toledo Bend Lake was created by the Sabine River Authority of Texas and the Sabine River Authority of Louisiana which constructed a dam on the Sabine River, just north of Burkeville, Texas. The lake extends 65 miles to the north to near Logansport, LA.
