English: Caddo Lake is a 25,400 acre (103 km²) lake and wetland located in the Category:Piney Woods region, on the border between Texas and Louisiana, in northern Harrison County and southern Marion County in Texas and western Caddo Parish in Louisiana.
  • The lake is named after the Southeastern culture of Native Americans called Caddoans or Caddo, who lived in the area until their expulsion in the 19th century.
  • It is an internationally protected wetland under the RAMSAR treaty and is the largest natural fresh water lake in the South, and the largest Cypress forest in the world.
  • Caddo was one of Texas's few natural lakes; however, it was artificially altered into a reservoir by the addition of a dam in the 1900s. It is within Caddo Lake State Park.
