Caddo Lake State Park

245 Park Road 2, Karnack, TX

This 484-acre park is your entry point for exploring Big Cypress Bayou and Caddo Lake, the only natural lake in Texas. There’s a fishing pier and boat ramp, and you can rent canoes onsite to paddle over 50 miles of watery trails. The park also has hiking trails.

There are 46 campsites (available with water only or full hook ups), as well as rustic cabins that sleep up to six people to rent at Caddo Lake State Park. Staying here is all about the location — you’re right by the lake and within easy access to canoe rentals and paddling and hiking trails.

$3 per person, free for kids 12 and under
