San Augustine County is located in eastern Texas in a gorgeous setting. A significant portion of Sabine National Forest is within the boundaries of San Augustine along with the Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The county is also near Davy Crockett National Forest (to the west), Clear Creek Wildlife Management Area (to the southeast), and Peason Ridge Wildlife Management Area (to the east).
The population of San Augustine County is 8,865 and the total area of the county is 592 square miles. The county was established in 1837, and takes its name from the famous Saint Augustine of Hippo. The county seat is San Augustine.
San Augustine represents a quarter of the population in the county with a little over 2,100 people. The small town is located toward the northern portion of the county, close to Sabine National Forest as well as the Texas and Louisiana border where Toledo Bend Reservoir separates the two states. It is an ideal setting for those that love nature and prefer a quieter, more remote place to live.
San Augustine first started to get developed around 1717 when Spanish missionaries arrived. The Nuestra Senora de los Delores de los Ais continued until 1773, where it is now preserved as a historical site at Mission Dolores. Modern development began in 1832, and has only witnessed very small growth over the last couple of centuries.
Part of the reason is a sizable portion of the county is designated as public use area. Sabine National Forest is composed of nearly 161,000 acres. It spawns five counties, including San Augustine County as well as Sabine, Shelby, Newton, and Jasper counties. San Augustine County has the third most amount of acres to manage behind Sabine County and Shelby County. Sabine National Forest is noteworthy for its thick American beech trees. Loblolly pine and variations of longleaf and shortleaf pine also exist along with several hardwoods of oak. The Indian Mounds Wilderness area is also within Sabine National Forest.
Sam Rayburn Reservoir is situated directly south and west of the county. Almost all of the southern boundary of the county exists on the northern banks of Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The man-made lake is fed by the Angelina River, one of the biggest tributaries of the Neches River. It is the largest lake that exists completely in the state of Texas. It is a very popular weekend getaway for locals of San Augustine. Fishing and boating are the two most popular activities with largemouth bass, channel catfish, and bluegill common species. ESPN and BASS Masters are among the organizations that regularly promote national tournaments at Sam Rayburn Reservoir.
In addition to all its convenience to outdoor spots in eastern Texas, San Augustine County is also placed near a lot of major cities. Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio are all accessible within a day’s drive from San Augustine County. Shreveport, Louisiana is also only 90 miles north of San Augustine.
U.S. Highway 96, State Highway 21, State Highway 103, and State Highway 147 serve as the primary means for getting to various other locations in eastern Texas and western Louisiana. San Augustine County is characterized by hot summers and traditionally mild to cool winters.
