Acres Of Water & Miles Of Shoreline
0 acres and 0 miles of shoreline
This Review is being worked on. Wow, what a unique experience exploring the sloughs, bayou, and lake. The cypress swamps are nearly primeval and its easy to lose yourself in the twisting of the sloughs, bayous, and backwater of Caddo's shallow water. Big Cypress Bayou which leads into Caddo Lake is lined with river camps and houses (from run down shacks to very well done homes) on one side and the Caddo Lake Wildlife Management Area on the other side. From the Bayou you can take Boat Road C, if you can find it, and travel beneath an archway of river birches, dripping Spanish moss, and cypress nobs through the narrow and shallow cut to Caddo Lake. The first section is covered with green deceptively thick duckweed that opens and closes as you pass through it. Be aware it is very easy to loose your way in the Bayou as well as the lake.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day
In the evening, the outdoor amphitheater puts on a very good presentation on the lake, wildlife,
Other Cool Things To Do:
Make sure you visit the visitors center and check out the 7' long, 200 pound prehistoric looking long spatula snouted paddlefish. Paddlefish are native to Caddo Lake and they are the oldest surviving animal species in North American and they existed before the dinosaurs. Keep your eyes out for any of the several beaver and their homes.
