Come Visit Lake Bob Sandlin and See Why We Love Living Here!

Lake Bob Sandlin, rated one of the “25 Best Lakes & Swimming Holes in East Texas” by Dream Vacation Magazine, has almost 10,000 acres of clear water, peaceful bays, coves and beautifully wooded shoreline. Located about 100 miles from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Lake Bob Sandlin lies in the Titus, Camp, and Northeast corner of Wood Counties and is highly lauded as the most picturesque lake in East Texas.

Rich in history, Lake Bob Sandlin and surrounding areas were native to the prehistoric Caddoan people, who occupied East Texas from 200 B.C. to 1700 A.D. It has also been home to the Kickapoo, Choctaw, and Cherokee tribes. This history can still be seen throughout the area. With 75 miles of shoreline, filled with varieties of oak, pine, dogwood, redbud, and maple… Lake Bob Sandlin is literally where the Piney Woods and Blackland Prairie Eco-regions come together to create an area known as the Post Oak Savannah region. The fall landscape of this spectacular merger of regions is absolutely breathtaking and one has to see it to believe it!
