The eight campsites at Woodpecker Hollow provide full water, electricity, and sewer hookups for RVs, and this campground 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 -- this campground is farther away from the park’s 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 campground is a great choice for tent campers, since motorhomes aren’t allowed in the area.

Lots of space to explore the surrounding woods and swampy marshes around the campgrounds. One of the main attractions at Caddo Lake is exploring the lake by canoe. There is easy access to canoe rentals near the campground and you can even bring your own Stand Up Paddle board if that's your preferred method for exploring the lake! There is a lot of rich history in this part of Texas and you can take a tour of Caddo Lake by way of the last known wood-burning, steam powered, stern paddle-wheel touring vessel in the world; The Graceful Ghost.

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!

This picnic area was flooded but it was nice to fish right off the tables!Our 3 month old, Otis, on his first camping trip to Caddo Lake State Park.

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.

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!

One of the fishing piers inside the park, stays lit until 10pm. Mill Pond at sunset.Looking for gators... or bigfoot. Cruising around Mill Pond.Tent & twinkle lights inside one of the shelters... nice and dry :)

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!

Caddo Lake is beautiful! We only spent one night there as we were passing through, but the swampy cypress trees stole my heart.

The morning mist on the lake is what dreams are made of!Perfect hammock spot.

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!
