The town evolved from fishing camps and resort operations around scenic Caddo Lake in Harrison County. It was incorporated in 1961. The site is near Uncertain Landing, so named because steamboat captains in earlier days often had trouble mooring their vessels. It was also the site of an old hunting, fishing and boating society called the Uncertain Club, which existed in the early 1900s. Today, the town still relies on the lake's tourism attractions for its livelihood. The town limits are irregular in shape so as to include most of the resort areas along the shores of Caddo Lake. Several antique shops and an art gallery are located around the lake, as are fishing guides. Bed-and-breakfast accommodations are available.
