I didn't imagine we had this 'other world' in Texas. The cypress swamp is very beautiful even on a cold, over cast day. This is an amazing experience. I will come back again.

We went off season so the water wasn't overwhelmed with nature - but Captain Ron shared a lot of facts and was very friendly - it was an enjoyable ride around the lake.

I've been to Caddo many times but never been down the way Captain Ron took us. So beautiful. I could have stayed out there all day. Wish the tour lasted longer!! ❤️

It sure about the dog. Call Captain Ron! He’s very friendly and won’t mind at all. There is a restaurant and catfish is their specialty. They were running weird hours when we were there so we didn’t get to go.

The restaurant is open Thursday through Sunday I believe. The swamp tour cost varies by time but is not expensive.
