In the community of Leggett, the Eagles Rest RV Park is a small but friendly RV campground in East Texas. It lies just a short drive north of Livingston while being on the doorstep of the Sam Houston National Forest, the Davy Crockett National Forest, and the Big Thicket National Preserve.
RV camping at Eagles Rest RV Park includes access to 27 pull-through sites, with 30 and 50-amp hookups available. Well-behaved pets are welcome to stay with you at the RV park, which also features clean bathrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and a self-service RV wash station.
A short hop southwest of Eagles Rest RV Park is the Sam Houston National Forest, which encompasses more than 160,000 acres along the edge of Lake Livingston. It’s traversed by an extensive network of hiking trails, including the longest continuously marked footpath in Texas - the Lone Star Hiking Trail - which extends for 96 miles between Richards and Cleveland. You can rent canoes or paddle boats at Double Lake to get out on the water or try your luck at luring fish in the waters of Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston. Endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers inhabit the forest, as do pileated woodpeckers, owls, and a variety of birds of prey.
Directly north of the Sam Houston National Forest is the Davy Crockett National Forest, which is named after the American folk hero and legendary pioneer. There are several short nature trails for walkers to explore, as well as the 20-mile-long Four C National Recreation Trail that offers magnificent views across the region from the Neches Bluff Overlook. Anglers can try their luck at the Ratcliff Lake Recreation Area, with its central water body also accessible to swimmers during the warmer months.
Camping at Eagles Rest RV Park is also a good base for visiting the Big Thicket National Preserve, which has been recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. It sprawls across a complex mosaic of ecosystems that are home to more than 500 vertebrates, as well as 160+ tree species and around 340 types of grasses. You can explore the region’s towering longleaf pines, carnivorous plants, and bogs along the Big Thicket National Preserve’s 40-mile network of hiking trails or launch a kayak to paddle the 21-mile Village Creek Paddling Trail. Hunting is also permitted in some areas of the preserve.

There are also numerous gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a wide choice of dining establishments that include fast-food restaurants, Mexican eateries, and an Italian grill.
While you’re in Livingston, don’t miss a visit to the Polk County Memorial Museum, which details the people and events that have shaped the region. Learn about the chronological evolution of Polk County while browsing the mammoth fossils and mastodon teeth on display, get up close to Native American pottery and handicrafts, then browse the period clothing, documents, and weaponry dating from the Civil War years.
Eagles Rest RV Park can also be used as a base for visiting Houston, which is home to the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center - NASA's central hub for human spaceflight. Jump aboard a guided tram tour to get a behind-the-scenes look at the Mission Control Room where NASA led the Gemini and Apollo missions, then delve into the natural history of the region at the outstanding Houston Museum of Natural Science. Art enthusiasts shouldn’t miss a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts. Its impressive collection spans more than 6,000 years of history while opera buffs should coincide their visit with a performance at the Theater District’s renowned Houston Grand Opera.
Drive in the other direction from Eagles Rest RV Park, and you’ll arrive in Lufkin, which serves as the seat of Angelina County.

Get your cultural fix at the Museum of East Texas where regional artworks are displayed, or admire the dinosaur bones and space shuttle artifacts that are exhibited at the Naranjo Museum of Natural History.
