The county's center is sixty-eight miles northeast of Houston, twenty-three miles northwest of Beaumont, and fifty-four miles from the Gulf of Mexico (at 30°20' N, 94°23' W). Although pine and hardwood forests dominate the county's 897 square miles, grasses, native legumes, and dense undergrowths of brush and vines also thrive. Among numerous mammalian species, cougars and bears are sometimes sighted in the forests. Only a small section, in the southwestern corner of the county, is prairie.

Sites and Attractions in Hardin County 

  • The Big Thicket is the name given to a somewhat imprecise region of a heavily-forested area of Southeast Texas in the United States. It is a highly biodiverse area for a temperate region, which has been described as "America's Ark" and the "Biological Crossroads of North America". The National Park Service established the Big Thicket National Preserve (BTNP) within the region in 1974 and it is recognized as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Although the diversity of animals in the area is high, with over 500 vertebrates, it is the complex mosaic of ecosystems and plant diversity that is particularly remarkable.

  • Village Creek State Park is a state park in the Piney Woods of eastern Texas in the Hardin County city of Lumberton. The heavily forested, 1,090 acres park opened in 1994. It is named for Village Creek, a clean, sand-bottomed, free-flowing tributary of the Neches River. The forested area features cypress swamps including bald cypress, water tupelo, river birch, riverflat hawthorn, and yaupon holly trees.
