Caddo Forest Trail

Caddo Forest Trail
Karnack, TX.
Caddo Lake is the idyllic cypress swamp with its mix of bayous and sloughs covering over 26,000 acres and the perfect place for Bigfoot to go for some R&R. It is the only naturally formed lake in Texas. A natural logjam, the Great Raft, may have formed the bulk of Caddo Lake in the early 1800s, but it is possible that some permutation of the lake has existed for centuries. Today the lake’s water levels are controlled by dams and reservoirs. Its depth fluctuates between 8 feet in the shallows to 20 feet in the bayous, and it harbors seventy-one species of fish.
