Cedar Creek Lake
The fourth-largest lake in Texas, Cedar Creek Lake is more than 32,000 acres, 18 miles long and offers 320 miles of shoreline. Just 55 miles southeast of Dallas, the lake is a haven to both weekenders and permanent residents. It was created in 1964 as a water reservoir for Tarrant County and is one of the very few lakes in Northeast Texas that allows property ownership of the waterfront, with the ability to have your own private boathouse. Cedar Creek Lake has been recognized as one of the best places in the country to live, for retirement.
