Things to Do
At Caddo Lake State Park, you can fish, paddle, hike, picnic, camp or stay in a cabin, look for a geocache, and go boating. Rent our group hall for your next reunion!
Alligators live in the park; read our alligator safety tips before your visit.
Fish: Access the 26,810-acre Caddo Lake, which harbors more than 70 species of fish. We have a fishÃÂing pier and a boat ramp. You do not need a fishÃÂing license to fish from shore in a state park.
