Launch your boat here to explore the Neches River and Pine Island Bayou. The 4.8-mile Cooks Lake to Scatterman Paddling Trail begins here.
The saltwater barrier, managed by the Lower Neches Valley Authority, was constructed to keep saltwater from the Gulf of Mexico from mixing with the freshwater from the Neches River.
