Traveling along the El Camino Real de los Tejas (LA Hwy 6) will take you to the breathtaking 186,000 acre Toledo Bend Reservoir - an angler’s paradise with outdoor adventure galore.
Toledo Bend Lake Country offers world class fishing, an Audubon Trail golf course, 2 state parks, history, RVing and camping, hiking, shopping, dining and great places to stay that range from cozy waterfront cabins to a full scale resort, Cypress Bend Resort. Following the Louisiana Purchase, this land became the neutral strip or “No Man’s Land,” home to outlaws and sanctuary searchers with no law enforcement. Visit Fort Jesup State Historic Site to discover how the lawless region was tamed. Communities in the area offer quaint shops and antique stores where you can hunt for hidden treasure. Follow the Tamale Trail to satisfy your appetite for delicious Zwolle hot tamales. Annual celebrations are held including the Choctaw-Apache Tribe of Ebarb’s Powwow, the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta, the re-enactment of the Battle of Pleasant Hill, Many’s Christmas Parade and the Sabine Free State Festival.
