**The Neches River & Boomtown are both less than 15 minutes from SETx. They both accommodate wakeboard boats very nicely.
Location & Detailed Directions to the SETx Lake:
SETx is off-the-beaten path so to speak. We don't have a registered address (YET) so we're not exactly "GPS friendly." (We're workin' on that but in the meantime...) Rose City Sand is the closest location to SETx so here is their address:
1500 Freeway Boulevard
Vidor, TX 77662
The SETx lake is about 1/2 mile off of Ih-10 westbound, (behind Rose City Sand.) Use the address listed above and you'll be in the ball-park for sure!
From Lake Charles, off of Ih-10 you'll take the #860 exit. Once on the access road you'll see a sign on the right for Rose City Sand. You should see a small SETx sign as well, this is where you turn RIGHT onto a gravel/dirt road. Follow that road about 1/2 mile and we're the 2nd lake on the LEFT. You'll enter through a red metal gate and you're there!
From Houston, off of Ih-10 you'll take the #860 exit for "Bonner Turnaround/N.Dewitt". Once on the access road, take your first available U-TURN. Once on the access road (headed westbound) you'll see a sign on the right for Rose City Sand. You should see a small SETx sign as well, this is where you turn RIGHT onto a gravel/dirt road. Follow that road about 1/2 mile and we're the 2nd lake on the LEFT. You'll enter through a red metal gate and you're there!
