It is an internationally protected wetland under the RAMSAR treaty and is the largest natural fresh water lake in the South.  It has the largest Cypress forest in the world.  The current dam was constructed as a modification to provide for navigation, water supply, recreation, commercial fishing, preservation of existing land values and flood control.  Caddo Lake Dam was completed in June 1971.
