of Caddo Lake

Hosts: Billy and Dottie Carter

Billy Carter, born in nearby Marshall, has been hunting and fishing on Caddo since he was a young boy. He has been guiding on the lake for 40 years and enjoys telling of his lake adventures, ranging from spending foggy nights lost in the swamp to spanking beavers for blocking his favorite fishing hole. Billy is a "true product of the swamp!"

Dottie Carter, a Caddo Lake native, whose father was a founder of the City of Uncertain, is a former teacher of young children. A writer and artist, Dottie's talents are evident in her decorating skills in the guesthouse (including floor murals) and mosaic tile work in "Isabella Bird's Garden".


Around Uncertain, you'll probably catch a glimpse of Billy and Dottie, cruising the lake in a boat, or the roads on motorcycles. Wave them down and say hello!
