To accommodate the more adventurous campers, there are 13 primitive campsites available along the Neches and Angelina Rivers at the north end of the project. These sites are located in the Angelina-Neches/Dam B Wildlife Management Area and currently offer no facilities, consisting of only a cleared designated campsite on the river bank. Camping in this area is limited to these 13 sites only. Access is by boat only, with the primary launch site at the Bevilport boat ramp on the Angelina River.
The river campsites have recently been cleaned and some new amenities (picnic tables, fire rings) have been installed. Please take care of your site and keep your area clean. If you are interested in helping with the next primitive campsite clean-up, call the Project Office.
Use of the primitive campsites is free; however a permit is required. Permits may be obtained up to 6 weeks in advance and for up to 7 days at a time. Please contact the Town Bluff Project Office at 409-429-3491 for permit information and campsite availability.
