The best camping near Caddo Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Set just across from the Louisiana border, this lush park offers a unique ecosystem for Texas, one of towering bald cypress trees dripping with Spanish moss above a maze of bayous, sloughs, and swamps. The largest natural lake in Texas is also home to more than 50 miles of paddling trails, 70-plus fish species, and an impressive array of wildlife—including alligators. Several hiking and nature trails offer land-based ways to explore, while overnight options at Caddo Lake Campground include four well-equipped areas for RV and tent campers. Here you’ll find 46 campsites spanning primitive to full hookup sites, a screened shelter, and historic cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Plan ahead for trips during peak season. Campsites and cabins can be reserved up to five months in advance, and you'll want to make yours as soon as possible.
  2. If you don’t have a reservation, arrive at the park first thing in the morning to grab any potential unreserved sites.
  3. To beat the crowds, try visiting during the week, non-holiday periods, or in winter. 

When to go

The park is at its busiest from March through November. Consider visiting during the week or over winter to escape crowds, though temperatures can dip to freezing from mid-November to March. Visit in summer to see lotus flowers and water lilies in bloom, but expect very hot and humid weather.

Know before you go

  • The park rents canoes, or you can bring your own canoe or kayak.
  • There are alligators in the park and lake. Be careful with kids and pets, and don’t feed or harass the alligators.
  • You don’t need a fishing license to fish from shore, but you do need one to fish from a boat. Fishing equipment loaners are available.
  • Bring insect repellent—mosquitos can be an issue here.
  • Several facilities are wheelchair-accessible, including two cabins and two sites at Woodpecker Hollow.
  • Pets are allowed in the park but not inside any buildings or camping cabins.
