Trail Information


Just a mile down Cedar Creek Lake Road off of Trail 86 lies a quiet little lake most folks have never heard of, Cedar Creek Lake. Cedar Creek Lake is an 86 acre flood control lake that has the 4 most common types of fish native to the natural state; largemouth bass, crappie, bream, and catfish. Rates of fishing success vary widely, from not good to spotty to very good, depending on the angler and on the particular occasion when he or she goes after the fish. Cedar Creek Lake is one of 6 watershed lakes in this part of the Ouachita National Forest. This little lake is an excellent place to get the canoe out and take advantage of a mere fraction of what the beautiful state of Arkansas has to offer. There's a ton of great forest roads in the area to explore, one being Little Cedar Creek/FR793 which offers some magnificent camping spots and a short hike to a waterfall. A few more are Ritter/FR211, Muse Mountain/FR778, and Reform Road/FR179. This area of the Ouachita National Forest is known as Flatside Pinnacle. But don't let that deter you from exploring this area of the forest. It has some marvelous scenery you won't want to miss out on!

Short and simple trail that provides access to the lake. There's a steep section at the very end as you approach the boat ramp/parking area for the lake but even a well skilled driver in 2WD vehicle should be able to navigate the hill.
