One of the Top 40 “Best” Canoe-Camping Trips in the USA….
The lower Neches (nay-chez) is a Wild & Scenic River that meanders slowly past the Big Thicket National Preserve region of Southeastern Texas.
The Neches River offers paddlers & campers outstanding scenery including Cypress/Tupelo Sloughs, Bluffs, oxbow lakes and a mixed Pine-Hardwood forest. Snow-white sandbars lend themselves for day use and excellent primitive campsites. Wildlife sightings are frequent and aquatic life is healthy.
A pristine watershed relatively free of humans and man-made endeavors, these Wild & Scenic River Adventures offer canoe-campers an adventure they won’t soon forget.
