Zavalla is a small town in east-central Texas' Angelina County. As of the 2010 census, the population was 713 residents. Zavalla is located near Lake Sam Rayburn, which lies just east of the community. Lake Sam Rayburn is the largest lake in Texas that is located wholly within the state. It's 114,400 acres in size, has a maximum depth of 80 feet and almost 750 miles of shoreline. The main purpose of the lake is for flood control and hydroelectric power, but it's also a very popular recreational lake. Situated within the East Texas Piney Woods, Lake Sam Rayburn offers some of the best fishing in Texas for largemouth bass. More than 300 tournaments are held here each year. Excellent year-round crappie and catfish are also present, and bluegill and redear sunfish are also present in high numbers. White bass numbers are limited, but provide good fishing opportunities during the spring. Other things to do at the lake include boating, picnicking, swimming, water-skiing, wakeboarding, birding, hiking and camping. All different types of lodging around the lake is available, including cabins, motels, RV parks, bed and breakfast inns and lake vacation home rentals. You can also take a scenic drive around the lake and visit many other historic towns in the area, in addition to scenic Zavalla.
