Canoeing on Lake WhitneyNot only is Cherokee Village Resort & Nature Center the only resort on Lake Whitney certified as a Texas Wildscape, but it is also the only resort located at the base of the Cedar Creek extension. This makes us one of the best departure points for canoers in search of calmer waters and unpopulated shorelines. Extending for up to 2 Ā½ miles, Cedar Creek cuts through a diverse wilderness making it most desirable for wildlife and wildflower enthusiasts alike.

Whether they are novice or seasonal canoers, guests staying at the resort cabins will find a compatible canoe route outlined on the resort's enlarged canoe map, located in the Pavilion next to our new office. So load up the canoe, or rent one of ours if needed and spend a couple of days or more reconnecting with nature, both on the lake and on the resort.
