This Is A Great Old Fishing Camp On Caddo Lake ...

called Crip's Camp. It is located in Uncertain Texas on Goose Prairie Drive. This is my kind of place. They have a huge covered boathouse where you can rent a jon boat with a small outboard motor, two life jackets and a paddle for a reasonable price for the day. This is a throw back to a simpler time. Back in the old days, you could go to any lake in the state and find a similar fishing camp with cabins and small boats and motors for rent. Sadly the old time fishing camps have all but disappeared every where except for Caddo Lake. Some how my crippled old ass can sleep better at night knowing there are still one or two fishing camps still in operation.

When I was growing up, I used to go to fish camp with my grandfather every summer. It looked a lot like these photographs. And you are right, most of them have been knocked down and replaced with rich peoples lake houses here.
Hermit I bet those are some great memories of fishing with your grandfather.
