Caddo Lake Campground includes four well-equipped areas for RV and tent campers.
- Best for RVs: Woodpecker Hollow offers full hookup sites for RVs only.
- Best for tents: Mill Pond offers 20 sites for tents, pop-ups, and small trailers only, and is the closest to Saw Mill Pond.
- Best for comfort: Nine cabins offer bathrooms, A/C, heat, and some kitchen amenities.
The eight campsites at Woodpecker Hollow provide full water, electricity, and sewer hookups for RVs, and this camping area is closest to the bathroom and shower facilities. Here you’ll have plenty of amenities to be thankful for, including the fact that the site name doesn’t actually imply a 6am jackhammering woodpecker wake-up call. If you seek seclusion, pitch your tent at Armadillo Run, an area farther away from the other three camping areas. You’ll find eight sites with water and electricity hook ups here, along with the fire rings, grills, and picnic tables that are available at all campsites within the park.
The campsites in Squirrel Haven are tricked out with water and electricity hookups, as well as picnic tables, grills, and fire ring. You’ll also find seven screened shelters in this area, which can fit up to eight people each. Just off of Saw Mill Pond you’ll find the Mill Pond Camping area. Choose between 20 sites equipped with running water, picnic tables, grills, and fire rings. This is a great choice for tent campers, since motorhomes aren’t allowed in the area.

Camped in the Armadillo Run Camping Area. While beautiful with tons of trees, it is very close to a major road and you can consistently hear traffic. Will stay in Mill Pond area next time. Lovely park with great canoeing options! Make sure to bring bug spray - TONS of mosquitos!
This is my favorite spot to camp in Texas! Beautiful, big trees provide lots of shade. We've even been on the Fourth of July and had a great time. It wasn't too hot at all. Their fireworks display is one of the best around. The campground is so laid back and relaxing. We always get a canoe when we go and have a picnic on the water. I've been several times and can't wait to go back!
Just returned from our camping trip to Caddo. I opt for one of the screened in shelters, just in case some spring TX weather turned wet on us... and I'm so glad I did! Shelters are great, stayed totally dry during a wicked T-storm. Rented a canoe for 48 hrs from the park, but had limited use because of a wind advisory on the lake (whomp). Wandered the Nature trail instead, good stuff and an easy hike. Grab a Jr. Ranger backpack from the HQ for added entertainment. hint: limited shopping, so make sure you bring EVERYTHING, including dry fire wood. Spacious camping spots, swing sets for kiddos, little cell service by the lake. Great place to unplug, will be back to gain more paddle miles for sure!
If you're longing for the smell of pine needles and a cacophony of birds, Caddo Lake is your spot. We camped at Mill Pond, which allows tents only, and comes highly recommended. Rent a canoe and some poles and go fishing early among the bald cypress, and float into a seemingly prehistoric world (watch for gators). Caddo Lake is a birders paradise. We hiked every trail on the map, and enjoyed a solitary picnic at the CCC pavilion.
We get high on the lake then we float down the river
Get off on the backroads get lost in the woods
Very deep in the heart of Uncertain Texas
I tried hard to leave there but never did good
We loved this park! It was so fun to walk around and check our the different views the park has to offer. We took the paddle-wheel steamboat tour out of Karnack and later explored Jefferson. It was a wonderful trip and we've been aching to go back!
