This is the dock at Caddo Lake where you meet up with the boat to travel the lake. Angie, our captain, knew the lake, well, like the back of her hand. She was able to show us where a certain alligator got some sun and where the wildflowers were and what time they would open. Basically she and her husband had a true connection to the lake and had basically lived there since they were children.
The first time I went to the lake the rental boat was not able to travel the really shallow water. This time, Angie's boat, was able to move freely through 6 inches of water and get to some very interesting locations. Simply said there is no place on earth like Caddo Lake - stop by Johnson's Dock and ask for Angie - tell her I sent you....this national treasure is well worth a visit.
Caddo Lake is located in Uncertain, Texas just down the road from Marshall, Texas. There is a nice Hampton Inn in Marshall which is located about 20 miles from the lake.
