Mill Creek Park is a large, comfortable campground on the Sam Rayburn Reservoir, also known as Lake Sam Rayburn, tucked in the piney woods of southeast Texas.

The lake and the surrounding Angelina National Forest, provide a welcoming home for the endangered bald eagle in winter. The rare red-cockaded woodpecker also resides in the forest here.

Natural Features:

The campground is on the southeast shores of Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The lake boasts over 114,000 surface acres, making it the largest man-made lake that's completely located in Texas.


Fishing at the reservoir is wildly popular, with frequent fishing tournaments. Catches include largemouth bass, crappie and catfish.

Birding is also big, with chances to see warblers, vireos and other migratory songbirds. A resident population of wood ducks remains in the forest throughout the year.


The park features 110 campsites with water and electric hookups. There's also a group shelter, designated swimming beach, a playground, volleyball court and horseshoe pits for family entertainment.

Nearby Attractions:

From the eastern edge of the lake, hikers can embark on a 28-mile trail that heads east to the Toledo Bend Reservoir.
