Come take a journey into the far Outback of Texas. Caddo Lake is the largest natural lake in Texas. As you tour the lake you can marvel at God's creations seeming untouched by the outside world. A wonderful, beautiful and mystic place, Caddo Lake is a maze of 26,800 acres of interconnected waters ways, bayous, sloughs, ox-bows, channels, islands and cypress thickets.
Caddo Lake is a place that one could explore for a life time and still find places that you could think no man has ever gone before.
Caddo Lake has a large variety of wildlife such as this busy beaver that was photographed on one of our guided tours.

A NOTE FROM YOUR TOUR GUIDE Growing up here on Caddo Lake and spending my youth and most of my life exploring this beautiful place has given me a certain appreciation for this unique and special place I call home, Caddo Lake. It is my goal to give you the most pleasurable experience possible and provide you a personal and intimate experience of Caddo Lake that you will always remember. For me, seeing Caddo through other's eyes as they experience the best nature has to offer is a pleasure and very rewarding, I think I must have the best job in the world! I invite you to come take a guided tour of Caddo Lake and experience a place that time has seemed to have forgotten. A place with such beauty words or pictures can hardly depict what you will witness if you see it in person. I am so sure you will enjoy the experience that I tell all my customers, don't pay for the tour until it's over and if you don't like the tour you don't have to pay. I look forward to seeing you.
