Experience the Life of Caddos on the El Camino Real Trail

Travel back in time on the historic el Camino Real de los Tejas! Enjoy food, fun, pioneer skills, presentations, crafts, music, native plant hikes, archeology activities, and more.

This popular event shouldn’t be missed. Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, a Texas Historical Commission property, is the remains of a large village and ceremonial center built by a group of Caddo Indians known as the Hasinai more than 1,200 years ago on the prairie overlooking the Neches River. Located along the historic trail called El Camino Real de los Tejas, the site presents the culture and customs of the Caddo people through intriguing exhibits, displays and the preserved burial and ceremonial mounds.

The festival occurs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, October 28. Admission is free, but donations are welcome to defray the program cost. Ample parking is provided.                           

Caddo Mounds is located at 1649 State Highway 21 West, Alto, TX. The site is located six miles west of Alto, and approximately 30 minutes from Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Jacksonville and Crockett, Texas.
