The Bayou

Caddo Lake is on the Texas/Louisiana border. The lake covers 25,400 acres of Cypress swamp and has an average depth of 8′ 10″ with the deepest water averaging about 20 feet. It offers many bayous, channels, waterways and sloughs which delight fishermen. The state has marked 42 miles of “boat roads” to guide sportsmen through the maze of channels.

Caddo Lake is a bird watchers paradise. As many as 240 species of birds have been discovered at the lake.

And if you’re into fishing, Caddo Lake is an anglers delight with 71 species of fish. We’re talking largemouth bass (many trophy-size have been caught), white bass, crappie and sunfish. Seasonal fishing is good for channel catfish, blue catfish and flathead catfish.

You can fish directly from our pier at the RV park, from the shore, from a boat or go out with one of the local fishing guides.
