About the property

Texas Side of Great Fishing!

Castreaux Camp

110 Murray Lane

Milam, TX 75959

CASTREAUX CAMP is on a 1.5 acre tract of land. The immediate half acre surrounding the camp comes with plenty of parking space and is situated on a street corner of a quiet cul-de-sac and only a minute from the community boat launch. There are no better neighbors anywhere in the world. CASTREAUX CAMP is a single wide mobile home with CA-CH, consisting of 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. The larger BR has a queen sized bed, the second BR has a full sized bed and the living area offers a pull-out sleeper sofa bed. A flat screen TV in the living area is available with a basic package from Dish Satellite. This unit also offers Wireless Internet Service. The kitchen is complete with stove, oven, microwave, a full size refrigerator, coffee maker, pots, pans, cups, glasses and utensils. Linen and towels are provided. A screened-in back porch with ceiling fan and table for eating, telling stories, playing checkers or simply relaxing with a pocket view of Toledo Bend Lake. There are plenty of electrical outlets for charging your batteries. Within walking distance is a community boat ramp. Here you can launch your boat, return the boat trailer back to the camp and take that short 2 minute walk back to your boat. Less than two miles by road takes you to Holly Park Marina providing another launching ramp for your boat. A gas pump at the Marina is also accessible by water. At the marina you will find ice, ice cream, cold drinks, coffee with a hot breakfast sandwich or hamburger for lunch and of course all the necessary tackle to make your fishing trip complete. The marina also sell fishing licenses. REMEMBER that Texas honors Louisiana fishing licenses (and vice versa). If in need of groceries, less than 20 minutes into Hemphill on Hwy 87 South is a Brookshire Brothers store and for eating out you will find El Tio Mexican Restaurant, Subway, Dairy Queen, The Feed Store, and Hemphill Bar B Q. An additional 10 minutes of driving on Hwy 21 East from Milam, Texas into Toledo Town (into Louisiana) for more good Mexican food at El Giro with the choice to stop sooner at The Fisherman’s Galley just as you cross into Louisiana. This rental property is your best buy for your money and the owners are right next door for immediate response to any requests.

About Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro

Brenda was born and raised in Louisiana as a Thibodeaux... Pat was born and raised in Texas as a Castro; thus was born our business, Castreaux Services, LLC with Castreaux Camp resulting and operating alongside two other rental units; Castreaux Cottage and Casita de Castreaux. We are retired Petroleum Landmen. We moved onto the property in 2009 and fell in love with the water, wild life and a slower pace of life. We have three furr-kids, Paceaux (pronounced Paco), a Shih-tzu ; Petite, a Shih-Poo; and Peanut, a Yorkie.

Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro purchased this mobile home in 2013

Why Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro chose Toledo Bend Lake

We decided to buy this property because it was next door to our home and decided that it woud serve as an affordable place for those looking to experience a couple of days or more of pursuing the joy of fishing on Toledo Bend or for simply just getting away!

What makes this mobile home unique

Across the street in the green belt we have more than one family of Bald Eagles that have become part of our neighborhood. Sometimes at night you can hear the coyotes, and on nights having clear skies you can see the stars that some of us had not seen since childhood. It's beautiful in this part of the country. This property is located mid-lake and gives easy access to the north and south points of the lake. The very popular and well-known Holly Park Marina is within minutes of the rental property. The community boat launch is within a few hundred feet of the property. And finally, it is our privilege to host and be of service!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Ian and I had such a great time here! WE loved all the views; the pool & hot tub were also verry nice! Pat and Brenda were helpful and whenever we needed something they were eager to assist. They also gave us privacy as well. Definitely hope we can visit again! Maybe next time we'll try the "La Casita" home~
