Naclina is on State Highway 103 near Etoile and twenty miles southeast of Nacogdoches in southeastern Nacogdoches County. The settlement was established around 1900 as a logging camp. Its name was derived from the names of Nacogdoches and Angelina counties, as its site was very near that county line.

During the early 1990s Naclina was a dispersed rural community.
