BLACK BAYOU. Black Bayou rises near Springdale Cemetery in northeastern Cass County (at 33°13' N, 94°10' W) and runs southeast for twenty-four miles to its mouth on Soda Lake in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, just south of the Louisiana-Arkansas state line (at 32°42' N, 93°55' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
