Shirley Creek Marina is a water front RV park located on the largest lake in Texas, Lake Sam Rayburn. We provide RV spots with 30/50 amp, sewer and water hookups in the park, with on-site sewage dump for water front sites. We also have 13 spacious and beautiful cabins and plenty of tent sites! Come to enjoy all that this lake has to offer in the breathtaking Angelina National Forest! Kayak, paddle boat and life jacket rentals also available.
Established in 1972.
The Angelina River was dammed and flooded in 1969, with Shirley Creek Marina being developed in 1972. Since then, many owners have grown this beautiful park into the keep sake it is today. In 2015, Zack Spencer purchased the property and has been working tirelessly to renovate every aspect of this hidden gem in the Angelina National Forest. We have over 80 RV spots with hook ups, 13 gorgeous cabins, plenty of tent camping and even boat docks for your fishing or house boat. You’ll arrive as a guest and leave as a friend!
Shirley Creek Marina is located on the north end of Sam Rayburn Reservoir, which is a beautiful lake with over 560 miles of shoreline. The north end of the lake is littered with tree stumps, which makes this end of the lake perfect for catching some huge fish. Boat lanes as well as recreational boating areas have been cleared to give you access to the largest portion of the lake (which is relatively stump free) and to areas for skiing, boarding, or tubing.
When we stayed at Shirley Creek, we enjoyed all of the typical camping activities - games, good food, campfires, starlit nights, swimming, and unwinding after a hard work
But one of the main reasons we come to Shirley Creek is to enjoy all that Sam Rayburn has to offer. It is a beautiful lake with plenty of coves, sandy beaches, and smooth water. Read our review of Sam Rayburn Reservoir to learn more about the lake and what there is to see and do.
Shirley Creek is about 25 miles east of Lufkin and less than 35 miles from Nacogdoches and San Augustine - all of which offer some things to see and do ranging from Antiques to Zoos.
We have played and reviewed some golf courses in Lufkin as well as Nacogdoches. In fact, Lufkin is home to Crown Colony which is consistently ranked as one of the best in Texas. And Sam Rayburn Resort is undergoing some changes and should reopen their course in 2011. You can use this map of East Texas Golf Courses to find some good courses to play.
