Could someone direct me to a good website to locate paddler’s maps for Texas rivers? I am wanting to do some kayak camping and fishing and need some additional route and contact info.

I don't think this map has been updated in several years, but it has a lot of spots. Mostly lakes, but a few rivers.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but it's a place to start.

(I cant get the this to post as a link... you will need to copy/paste it).

Have you looked at the Texas Parks & Wildlife Inland Paddling Trails website?

Caddo would be a great place to explore... stay at the state park and be back at the end of each day. Beautiful area in the summertime. Lots of place to see off the main trail and good fishing... and plenty of shade!

Look for a book called Texas Rivers and Rapids. It's by far the best I've ever seen. Currently out of print but you might find it used on ebay or some such place.

Thanks for the info. I have a friend of mine who is trying to track down the book, and I am definitely going to get something going for Caddo.

Thanks for all of he help!

Checkout the Analysis of Texas Waterways. It provides a description of the access points and the distance between them. Its an old document but provides useful information for planning a river trip.

Caddo is on my list for sure. Went there once when I had a boat. It was nice but I had to stay in the main channels... I would really like to explore some of the backwaters in the quietness of a kayak.
