Uncertain and Caddo Lake have been featured
in various magazines and newspapers like Southern Living
Presents Texas Vacations and Texas Highways magazine.
Welcome to Uncertain, Texas and HodgePodge Cottages,
your doorway to the mysterious water-world of swamps, ponds, and
knobby-kneed cypress trees on Caddo Lake. Uncertain's charm lies
in it's remoteness.
The East Texas town is the gateway to one of the
state's great natural wonders, Caddo Lake. Uncertain is on the
southern shore of the lake.
How Uncertain got it's name is uncertain but some
people say it was because the lake's strong currents made river
travel uncertain in the steamboat days.
Others say the founders couldn't decide on a name
for their new town when applying for a charter, so they put down
"uncertain" on the forms.
The most popular theory is the one that says --
once you get to Caddo you're uncertain as to exactly where you
are -- and uncertain as to exactly when you'll want to leave.
One thing is for sure, you don't go to Uncertain by Chance! It's
one way in and one way out.
The spooky appearance of Caddo Lake has caught the
eye of moviemakers at least 16 times to shoot films such as The
Long Hot Summer, The Legend of Boggy Creek, and Soggy Bottom USA,
as well as five Disney films.

hunting, birdwatching and relaxation in a place unlike any you
