Cedar Creek Lake is located in Henderson and Kaufman Counties. The 32,873 acre lake is a popular destination for people living in the DFW metroplex who want to get away and enjoy some time on the water.
A majority of the shoreline is privately owned however Tom Finley Park has been established by TRWD as a day use waterfront park that is open to the public. The park is managed by Friends of Cedar Creek Lake and a small admission charge is required to access the park. Tom Finley Park includes an ADA boat ramp, picnic areas, a swimming area and great fishing opportunities. Plus every year from Thanksgiving to New Years, the park becomes a “Christmas Island” filled with wonderful light displays.
