Any boatable water on the Trinity River is at least 2 hours away, and only frogs are going to be swimming in shallow Carmen Lake.  When you are out there, you are pretty much in the middle of nowhere.  But it's nice if you come prepared.  Callahan is the closest sign of civilization (about 30 people) and it's a good 30-45 minutes away. Says Susan
