Many of Cedar Creek Lake’s residents are commuters, traveling to the Dallas area to work. They proclaim the hundred mile round trip well worth the serenity they experience upon returning home to the lake at the end of the work day. The shoreline of Cedar Creek Lake is also a popular spot for “week-enders” who purchase vacation/week-end homes that they can enjoy year round. The City of Gun Barrel City has been designated a Texas Certified Retirement Community.

With local parks, a public Skateboard Park, two public boat ramps on the north end of the lake, plus another on the south end, it’s a perfect family week-end or day trip destination.

Cedar Creek Lake offers diverse lodging, dining, retail, RV sites and water sports, all located on or near the shoreline of beautiful Cedar Creek Lake. The incorporated towns of Kemp, Seven Points, Tool, Trinidad, Malakoff, Star Harbor, Caney City, Log Cabin, Payne Springs, Enchanted Oaks, Gun Barrel City, Mabank and Eustace all surround the lake. The various towns are able to maintain their own identities and local governments, while having the distinction of being part of the Cedar Creek Lake community. Great festivals, local celebrations with a friendly hometown atmosphere, fishing, boating and golf are ongoing throughout the year.

Area attractions such as First Monday in Canton and Purtis Creek State Park in Eustace are all short drives from Cedar Creek Lake. Please come and enjoy the Lake!
