In San Augustine, Tx, across from the propane company. Its the middle of town, can't miss it if you look.
Review: Out of all of the fields that I have played at, this has to be one of the best. They are just opening and put almost EVERYTHING they make off of this place to improve it, and you can tell. The prices are great, remind me of home when the dollar was worth something. Entry is $15/ day (CO2 Included) and the paint is $45/case, very low for the quality.

I enjoyed the woods field especially, this is where my area of discipline sits and this field, in my opinion, was very well laid out. I did not get to play on the airball field, as my Ion was left at home, but my teammates had nothing but good things to say about it.

Two particular notes. First is the paint, it is rather thick, I liked this as it made it almost impossible to wipe. Just bring a rag along to clean up at your staging area. Second is the service. These people do their best to make you feel like you are a part of the family, a part of the group.

The owners have a great love for the sport and for the players. Our team looks to make this field our home field for years to come.

President, SFA Paintball Players Association

I would like to make an addition. My statements above were considering how far they had come in the few months they had been open, and things have gotten much better.

They now have more, and better, bunkers than they did when I first reviewed them, and have gone to great lengths to improve their field, especially the playability of their speedball field.

In December the speedball field was rather rough looking, being clay with hay on top to cover the rocks (it used to be a storage area for a concrete company). Since then many of the surface level rocks have been removed, almost all of them from the snake area, sand has been added to cover them, level it out, and improve drainage, and grass has grown on most of the field.

Also, when I first came there, it was like many fields with the non-playing areas underdeveloped, there were enough staging tables but not enough for a large crowd and of course the porta-john that is the normal lavatory at many fields. Now we have plenty of tables, many of which are specially designed for paintball staging, and an indoor, ADA accessible restroom.

Also, an aspect put in place for parties, that I have found useful for coaching the SFA team when weather is less than desirable, is a pavilion.
