Caddo Lake


  • Caddo Lake Uncertain, Texas (map)

Caddo Lake is a 25,400-acre lake and wetland on the border between Texas and Louisiana. The lake is named after the Southeastern culture of Native Americans called Caddoans or Caddo, who lived in the area until their expulsion in the 19th century. It is an internationally protected wetland and includes one of the largest flooded cypress forests in the United States. Caddo is one of Texas's few non-oxbow natural lakes and is the 2nd largest in the South; however, it was artificially altered by the addition of a dam in the 1900s. (Wikipedia text)

Photographic boat tour will be at sunrise on Saturday, June 29. This trip has been scheduled to enjoy three kinds of water lilies that a local boat captain tells us should be blooming at this time (American, Spider and the very tall Joaquin lilies on a tall stalk)! $25/pp for the photographic boat tour.

Note: Participants must be pre-registered and pre-paid to take advantage of the boat tour in order for us to have sufficient boat(s) available.
