Hilleetla

3 sites · Tents80 acres · Colmesneil , TX
Greetings from Hilleetla! This beautiful property with big rolling hills, big trees, spring water, creeks and lakes lies deep within the Big Thicket, behind the Pine Curtain. Originally a dairy farm, with the old barn and milk bottles intact, then a miniature pony farm with a miniature stable to match, and later a vacation home for some quasi-urbanites. Now our home, our muse, and our place of refuge. A place to share with friends and family and those seeking an authentic experience, here, on the ground. A working farm, a plant nursery, a garden, our forest farm, and our center for creativity, love, life and design. As a landscape architect (Alissa), designer and horticulturalist (David), we've found our match here, at what we now call Hilleetla. Join us on a Full Moon or New Moon (Star Gazing!) and get 15% off!

The best camping near Angelina National Forest guide

Overview

About

This large national forest in East Texas is known for its gigantic lake. Find plenty to do at Sam Rayburn Reservoirand the Angelina River. Explore other treasures in this recreation area that offer out-of-the-way, secluded spots to enjoy.

Hike through the Indian Mound Wilderness to find solitude among dirt roads, secluded trails, and wide-open spaces. Camp at a rustic site here for peace and quiet.

Boykin Springs Lake is just 9 acres, but it's a quiet fishing hole for all-day enjoyment. Splash around at the waterfalls on Boykin Creek. Hike around the lake and creek thanks to the trail that runs next to it.

Swim in the Blue Hole, a unique water park. Blue Hole was once a quarry, and the minerals from the excavations make the water a turquoise-blue color. Sleep nearby in an adjacent campground managed by a private business owner.

Head to the historic Aldridge Sawmill. Four buildings of this ghost town remain, as well as concrete foundations of long-gone buildings.
