Toledo Bend Recreation Park is a major recreation site located approximately 30 to 40 minutes from Fort Polk on the Toledo Bend Reservoir.  With 1,200 miles of shoreline, the Reservoir is on the Sabine River between Texas and Louisiana.  The lake has an area of 185,000 acres, the largest man-made body of water partially in both Louisiana and Texas, the largest in the South, and the fifth largest by surface acreage in the United States. 

The Reservoir offers an unlimited opportunity for year round recreation; with the U.S. Army Recreation Park available for swimming, boating, picnicking, fishing, camping, play areas, and sightseeing. 

Rental cabins and yurts are available year round for use.  The cozy cabins sleep up to 5 people and have central air and heat, ceiling fans, full baths, and fully-equipped kitchens.  Towels and bedding is not provided.  Full hook-up and primitive recreational vehicle sites are available, some with water and full hook ups.

A marina offers pontoon and bass boats for rent, kayaks, paddle boards and a gas station.  An enclosed recreation vehicle storage area is available for privately owned vehicles.  A large fishing pier extends beyond the shoreline and includes a fish cleaning station to compliment on lake side fishing.     

The beach is open with no lifeguards on duty and swimmers swim at their own risk.

The Toledo Bend General Store is on site and provides a variety of amenities, beverages, packaged snacks, ice, fishing licenses and merchandise.
