Caddo Lake State Park

Located in far East Texas near the Louisiana border, you will find beautiful Caddo Lake,Β a sprawling maze of bayous and sloughs. Depending on rainfall, this maze of slow-moving bayous, wetlands and backwaters covers about 26,810 acres of cypress swamp. Β To really experience the beautiful forests of cypress trees draped in Spanish moss, you need to get out on the water. Canoe rentals are available or you can take a guided pontoon boat ride.

We camped at Β Caddo Lake State ParkΒ with the Heart of Texas Camping Unit. Several other club members brought their kayaks and canoes so we all got together and explored a paddling trail. The trail is clearly marked but I was glad I took along the GPS…just in case! It would be very easy to get disoriented and loose your way in the maze of cypress trees. We paddled 9 miles that day. It was a great day and another fun camp out!
