April at Caddo Lake State Park

I have reserved a Shelter at Caddo Lake State Park for some April Camping, Fishing, Kayaking, and Geocaching.

The shelter will be used to store the coolers and food. They do allow tents to be put up around the shelter, so if you'd like to share on this site and put your tent up, pop me an email. It will be first come first served.
If you'd prefer to get your own shelter or campsite, they do still have both available. Just call TPWD at (512)[masked] and make your reservation. If you don't email me for a spot on my site, I will assume that you got your own.

This will be a casual weekend and everyone is free to do as much or as little as they'd prefer. I'll post more details at a later date...

Hope some of you will join me!

    Caddo Lake is a fishing and paddling paradise. They've recently opened up 10 paddling trails around the Lake but you do need to make sure that you are experienced at controlling your boat and have the stamina to complete the Trail you choose to do. It was AWESOME! The Hell's Half Acre Trail gives you everything in the area... River, Bayou, Canal, and Swamp... Plus some good swells from all the speeding motor boats that go by. Great fun!

    Sophie, I won't be able to go after all. My week-end just got messed up. Sorry.

    • Sophie

      No problem... Have a good one! We'll do another one soon!

    I am not able to take off from work Friday, so my question to you all is, if I leave Houston around 4p, will I be able to make it to Caddo in plenty of time to set up my tent, and enjoy festivities or should I wait to leave Saturday morning?

    • Sophie

      Bernice, come on out ... unless you have trouble driving after a workday (don't want you to fall asleep). I'll help you put up your tent, no problem. The Park does not have a gate that they lock at a certain hour, so you'll be fine getting in at whatever hour. I'll wait for you and make sure you get settled in OK!

      Great! Thanks, Sophie. I'll drive up right after work on Friday. looking forward to the week-end

    Vicki are you taking a kayak? I have a full size bed and extended back seat. I could leave my house around 9:00 and pick you up if you like. If you have a kayak it will be more interesting packing but I have taken two before and been fine. My truck has a camper shell.

      I just have my tent and personal stuff. No kayak. I live on West Rd at Jones near 290. That would be fine.

      April 5, 2013

  • Vicki K.

    I was planning on leaving from 290 and the beltway early Friday morning. Traffic is bad until about 9 am. If you wanted to meet somewhere and go together that's fine but I will probably overpack as usual.

  • Ginger H.

    Vicki when were you leaving? I would like to leave early Friday and need to haul my kayak. I live off the Beltway and 59. Maybe I could meet you if the timing works out. We could go in my truck.

  • Ginger H.

    When I went to Caddo years ago I left on a Friday at noon and arrived at 8:00 p.m. due to a back up on 59. On Friday afternoon traveling out of Houston is awful. Either get out ASAP or get up early Sat. morning would be my advice.

    We will not be in a burn ban yet, so let's plan on doing some grilling for the group meal on Saturday evening. Bring yourself something to throw on the grill and we'll potluck the sides. I'll bring the liners and charcoal.

    Ladies, I have some stops to make along the way so I am not going to carpool for this event. Sorry. But, feel free to communicate with each other if you're interested in finding a carpooling opportunity.

    I can give someone a ride. I am located in Jersey Village.

    March 5, 2013

    • Vicki K.

      That's fine. I am close to 290 and the Beltway so the Heights isn't that far.

      Yes, you are welcome to share my campsite... No problem. Also, it might help you to get a ride if you say what part of Houston you're in... Good Luck.

    They've opened up a Gator Farm near this Park, in Uncertain; if any of you would care to go for a visit. Also, there is a really nice Gator Farm just a little bit further that Joanna and I visited before. I'm planning to go visit again. We can carpool/Caravan over if there's enough interest.

      how many to a site?

      February 1, 2013

    • Sophie

      From past visits, I would say that 3 tents are about all that would fit around the shelter space comfortably... Depending on the site and the size of the tents. So, I can put 2 or 3 more tents. But, they do have campsites with water and electricity directly across the road from the shelters in case more ladies want to join us.

    Of course, Rose, bring the young lady along. ;-)
