2020 8th Annual Earth Day Flotilla

Welcome to the 2020 Earth Day Flotilla

Mark this date – May 30, 2020 (New Date!!)

Put in your canoe or kayak for a beautiful morning on one of three paddling trails that leave from Uncertain, TX, on the shores of Caddo Lake, in northeast Texas, on the border of Texas and Louisiana. Caddo Lake 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 “lake” is actually a sprawling maze of bayous and sloughs covering 26,810 acres. The Caddo Lake area has 10 trails designated as part of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Texas Paddling Trails system. Each trail has unique features, and all are good for birding, photography and so much more.

Other projects that benefit recreational development for Caddo Lake are always under consideration and review. Lots of improvement to the paddle trail signs this year !
