Caddo Lake State Park - Texas

"You'll feel you're back in prehistoric times among the cypress bayous"
Caddo Lake State Park

Located near the Louisiana border on Texas' only natural lake,
the park is rich in history and scenic beauty.
Caddo Lake State Park is named for Caddo Lake, a sprawling maze of bayous and sloughs covering 26,810 acres (10,850 ha) of cypress swamp. The average depth of the lake is 8–10 ft (2.4–3.0 m), with the deep water in the bayou averaging about 20 ft (6.1 m).  Information provided by Wikiped

This lake was the only natural lake in Texas until it was artificially dammed in the early 1900s when oil was found and for flood control in 1914. A new dam replaced the old one in 1971. From its freshwater marshes, backwater swamps, and majestic moss-festooned bald cypress, Caddo Lake provided plenty of inspiration for the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s who constructed landscape-friendly structures, including the quaint cabins still in use today. Activities enjoyed by visitors include camping, birding, hiking, paddling trails, picnicking, nature study, fishing and boating.

Comment:  Our family has been going down to Caddo Lake for the past twenty five years, with the last trip taking nine bass boats and eighteen guys/gals for a week long adventure.

We stay at the State Park cabins built by the CCC  "Recently remodeled Log Cabins". Very nice units with Bedrooms, Kitchen Units, Bathroom and Front Porches to kick back and relax in the evenings. The lake is beautiful and loaded with Lily Pads. "Picture This"  Floating in your boat, casting a stick bait near the roots of a Big Cyprus Tree, give it a twitch or two and exploding out from underneath of a Lily Pad comes a Large Bass or Chain Pickerel splashing and clamping on to your bait!  "Yippee".   Wait!  At the same time you will be thinking your going to see a Sasquatch or a Dinosaur Creeping through those Big Cyprus Trees loaded with Spanish Moss!  Good Stuff!   Get a five day fishing license, fish all week, and have a Fish Fry on Friday!   

Note:  You will need to pick-up a Caddo Lake map "Maps are available at the Ranger Station".  This lake is lay'ed out kind of like a hiking trail with markers at every turn "Like A Trail in Water" Believe me you can get turned around on this lake.  The map makes it easy to navigate, you will want to pick up a map!

Note: They have a nice campground too, check it out on link provided above.
