Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake

Cedar Creek Lake, the fourth largest lake in Texas with over 320 miles of shoreline, is located just one hour southeast of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. The short drive combined with the option for private boathouse ownership makes popular among visitors, "weekenders" and permanent residents alike.  More Lake Information
