Where is Jasper County, Texas?

  • Jasper County is located in Southeast Texas, bordered on the north by San Augustine and Sabine counties, on the east by Newton County, on the south by Orange County, and on the west by Hardin and Tyler counties. The county seat, Jasper, is 115 miles northeast of Houston and twenty-three miles west of the Sabine River and Louisiana.
  • The center of the county lies at approximately 94°00' west longitude and 31°41' north latitude. The county was named for William Jasper, a hero of the American Revolution who was killed attempting to plant the American colors at the storming of Savannah in 1779. Jasper County comprises 907 square miles of East Texas timberlands, with elevations ranging from 25 to 400 feet above sea level.
  • As of the 2010 census, its population was 35,710. The county was created as a municipality in Mexico in 1834, and in 1837 was organized as a county in the Republic of Texas.

Sites and Attractions in Jasper County

  • Boykin Springs Recreation Area offers camping, hiking, fishing, picnicking or just getting in touch with nature. A picnic shelter accommodating up to 74 people is available by reservation. The area serves as a trailhead for the Sawmill Hiking Trail.
  • Sandy Creek Park is located on the southeast side of B.A. Steinhagen Lake between the towns of Woodville and Jasper in southeast Texas. The lake provides a great getaway for fishing, boating, picnicking, camping, and birding.

  • Ebenezer Park features some of the most beautiful horseback riding trails in southeast Texas. It's the only Army Corps of Engineers park on Sam Rayburn Reservoir with equestrian campsites, making it the go-to destination for horse-owners. The horse trail terrain is soft and sandy, so horseshoes are not required. Trails glide over rolling hills through creeks and gullies. Some trails even have beach access, allowing riders and their horses to cool off on a hot day. 

Farming and Ranching in Jasper County 

  • The terrain along the northern border and southern third of the county is undulating to rolling, with loamy or sandy surface layers and reddish mottled clay or loamy subsoils. The rest of the county is generally flat, with the grayish, cracking-clay soils of the Trinity River floodplain and the reddish loamy soils of the Red River floodplain.
  • Water is plentiful in the county; the average annual rainfall is fifty-two inches. Principal water sources include Sam Rayburn Reservoir, Lake B. A. Steinhagen, the Neches River (which forms the county's western boundary), and the Angelina River. Temperatures range from an average high of 93° F in July to an average low of 37° in January; the average growing season lasts 229 days. Resources include abundant timber, oil, and natural gas. The timber is mixed pine and hardwood.

  •  In the early twenty-first century timber, oil operations, tourism and aircraft manufacturing were important elements of the local economy. In 2002 the county had 763 farms and ranches covering 96,286 acres, 37 percent of which were devoted to woodlands, 33 percent to pasture, and 27 percent to crops. That year farmers and ranchers in the area earned $4,813,000; livestock sales accounted for $3,310,000 of the total.
  • Timber, cattle and hogs were the chief agricultural products, but harvests of vegetables, fruit, and pecans also produced income for the area. More than 732,670 barrels of oil, and 11,160,962 thousand cubic feet of gas well gas, were produced in the county in 2004; by the end of that year 34,846,879 barrels of oil had been taken from county lands since 1928.
