Up the Creek
Lumberton was established at the end of the 19th century as a railroad stop serving nearby sawmills and lumber camps. Today, however, its principal claim to fame is as the home of the Village Creek State Park which draws visitors from both Texas and Louisiana, and beyond. Canoeing, hiking, and bird-watching are popular, but the clean, sand-bottom tributary of the Neches River is especially inviting on warm days. You’ll need to walk a mile up the creek and then you can dive into the waters which are usually comfortably warm with water temperatures in the 70s.
