From the TPWD website, "Caddo Lake, the only natural lake in Texas, was created by a mass of trees and flood debris known historically as the Great Raft of the Red River. It obstructed the river channel for more than 100 miles above Shreveport, Louisiana until 1874, when it was successfully removed to clear the channel for navigation. But the lake slowly drained away, leaving a swamp. A modern dam has recreated the lake, and today, canoeists and boaters can explore the picturesque maze of bayous – thick with ancient bald cypress trees" - http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publications/parkguide/rgn_pw_003.phtml
