Nestled in the quiet woods of East Texas only 60 minutes from the Dallas Metroplex, the City of Log Cabin boasts a resident population of 714 (2010 census) with numerous "weekenders" who don't live here year round. A quiet community, offering a chance to get away from the big city and enjoy the lake life. Raise your kids here, spend the week or the weekend in your RV, or just come have fun on the weekends, but don't miss a chance to visit!
Located about 65 miles southeast of Dallas and approximately 43 miles west of Tyler, the City of Log Cabin sits in the western portion of Henderson County, Texas. With all the lake amenities available to residents and visitors in Log Cabin (boat ramp, boat dock, fishing, swimming, sunbathing, playground, outdoor grills, picnic tables, etc.) don't forget that many Shopping and Dining opportunities abound a short distance from Log Cabin: a mile away is the City of Malakoff with its many Antique shops, a mere 10 miles east is the City of Athens, which is the county seat and the birthplace of the Hamburger, while a short 10 miles northwest you'll find the City of Gun Barrel City, which is filled with shopping and dining opportunities. For the movie buffs, Movie Theaters are available in both Athens and Gun Barrel City.
Since the construction of Cedar Creek Lake Reservoir in 1964, Log Cabin Park has shared memories with families as a resort and grown into the city we now know and love. In 1987, Log Cabin Resort Incorporated into The City of Log Cabin. We have the same "resort feel" with the added privilege of safety, surety and care for our citizens. We welcome you to come visit and experience some of the best waters at Cedar Creek Lake!
