The maps I looked at were kind of nebulous to it’s exact location, but it’s really easy to find. It’s just north of Jacksonville, and clearly marked with Rest Area signs. There is one, easy to miss if you’re driving, sign saying Love’s Lookout, but...More

This is a must stop for the passer through. It's a great, safe park for a quick rest and a walk around, and the view tops it all.

Beautiful rest stop!! Don’t miss it! This cannot be seen from the road. On a clear day visibility is 35 miles of breathtaking East Texas hills. Any season is worth the stop.

The Love's Lookout has a 35 mile vista on a clear day. You can wave at Louisana. The visitors center is friendly and helpful. There is a park at the Lookout too. It is a tourist must if you are driving through town.
