Canton Area & East Texas Lakes
In the Piney Woods Section of East Texas, there are over 30 lakes offering a variety of outdoor sports for vacations or weekends, including Lake Palestine.
Other popular lakes include Lake Fork, Lake Tawakoni, and Lake Athens.
These lakes provide fishing, swimming, water skiing, houseboats, jet skis, sailing, hiking, camping and other outdoor activities.
And within easy driving distance are other lakes such as the massive Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Texas-Louisiana border.
Just south of Canton is the well known Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center at Athens, a highly recommended site which combines visitation and outdoor education with a production fish hatchery.
