San Augustine, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Florien, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west of Hemphill are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Nacogdoches, is another good spot to discover. It is around 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Hemphill and offers a number of interesting attractions, including Stephen F.

Johnson Coliseum and Woodland Hills Golf Club are just a sample of the other interesting points of interest not to pass by.

Have a break from seeing the sights and spend a few relaxing hours fishing or canoeing.
