The steam boat could not be taken out the day we went to Caddo Lake; but the boat man took us out on a motor boot and told us a lot about the history of the area, the Caddo Indians, and some of the wildlife. The 1.5 hour tour is relaxing and the sightseeing is fabulous.

We went on this steam boat river tour when we visited Caddo State Park , TX. It leaves from Big Pines which is a great place to eat. The kids loved it. The captain was very informative and funny and even let the kids steer the boat for a minute.

Loved it all. The weather was great and the tour was informative. I've only been to East Texas twice and enjoyed the history of the boat, captain, first mate, and the area. If you have a stick up your ---, then don't go on this tour. The captain and Byron are hilarious. Love the jokes. I was not offended once... More

Me and my friend were so excited to visit Lake Caddo for the first time. We lucked out by getting Byron as our tour guide through the waters. He had amazing knowledge regarding the history of Lake Caddo. We we're pleasantly surprised by the tour and actually learned a thing or two while viewing one of the best (and only... More

Just a short boat ride on a river. Boat captain was not very interesting. Seemed like his spiel was forced.

We took the pontoon boat with Captain Ron last week and had a great time. If you take the paddlewheeler you go into the open lake. Go instead on the pontoon boat which goes into the swamp.It is awesome and the history and fun facts kept us highly entertained the whole time. Come on, people, these jokes were really mild... More

Save $20 and 10 IQ points and don't take this mind-numbing, worthless tour. The crew were annoying, unfunny and offensive, and the boat is a total eyesore. Who cares that it's wood-powered when there's no soul to be found anywhere on board. The Ungraceful Ghost has been stripped of all character; and fitted with metal gates and flooring and sideways...

The scenery was beautiful, the history interesting, but it would have been better if our guide, Byron, had kept his political and racist opinions to himself. He talked way too much; I wanted to ask him to be quiet and let us enjoy the scenery some. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the area. However, he wandered off... More

We didn't ride the steam boat but instead rode the pontoon boat. It was just beautiful. Our captain (Byron) was funny and very knowledgeable about the lake and it's history. Words and pictures just don't do this area justice and seeing it from boat is the way to go!

I took a group of Senior Adults from my church. Everyone enjoyed the trip. The scenery was beautiful. The steamboat guide was informative and humorous. I would like to return with my grandkids.
