A little over an hour southeast of Dallas, Cedar Creek Reservoir is Texas’ fourth-largest lake, and a popular hub for fishing, boating, and water-based recreation. Cedar Creek boasts 320 miles of shoreline and numerous coves to explore around the lake. Equipped with four full-service marinas, Cedar Creek Lake provides all the necessities you need for a day on the water, including boat rentals and bait and tackle for reeling in white bass, catfish, and crappie. Cedar Creek Reservoir makes a great starting point for exploring the many neighboring towns, including Seven Points, Gun Barrel City, Kemp, Star Harbor, and Trinidad. Its proximity to nearby townships provides a variety of shopping and dining options, as well as opportunities to enjoy local festivals.
