[Vlog] Camping, Canoeing, and Hiking at Caddo Lake State Park
There they were; as we drove into the park, the bald cypress trees at Caddo Lake State Park were standing tall out of the water. The gray moss hung gently off the branches, making it look like it had just snowed.
Caddo Lake SP is a beautiful place to spend the weekend by yourself, with friends or family. We camped for two nights at sheltered campsite number 16. We spent our time hammocking, hiking, canoeing, and relaxing among the pine trees keeping warm in front of the fire.
