Paddling The Caddo Lake Can be Quiet an Adventure [VIDEO]


If you love the great outdoors, breathing in fresh air and taking in all that Mother Earth has to offer, then you’re going to love the second annual Caddo Lake Earth Day Paddling Regatta on Saturday, April 20 near Uncertain, TX about 20 minutes from Marshall, TX.Discover new paddling trails, soak in the sun, and explore a bald cypress forest all while in your Canoe or kayak. Three new paddle trails, featured for the Regatta, range from four miles to 4.7 miles. “Old Folk’s Playground’” “Turtle Shell,” and “Cathedral” are part of the new designated trails established by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

I can remember a float trip in a Canoe I took several years ago in Arkansas. Believe me when I tell you there is nothing like the smell of the piney woods and the serene feeling you get from being one with nature. (Wait a minute I think that was a restroom break) I can also remember stopping along the way for a picnic and looking over all the unique foliage and rocks in the region. But back to Caddo Lake…

Caddo Lake,  located in northeast Texas on the border of Texas and Louisiana, is one of the best examples in the southern United States of a mature bald cypress forest. The area is known for its exceptional wildlife diversity. The Caddo Lake area has 10 trails designated as part of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Texas Paddling Trails system.

Registration is $10.00 per boat online at or in person at the Caddo Grocery at the corner of Cypress Drive and FM 2198 in Uncertain beginning at 7 a.m. on April 20.

Overnight lodging can be confirmed in Marshall at or information is available from the Marshall Convention & Visitors Bureau, 903-702-7777.

Earth Day is officially Monday, April 22, 2013 and the theme this year is climate change. See video
