Welcome to Kilgore, Texas

The City of Kilgore is located in Gregg and Rusk County and is 11 miles south of the county seat of Longview and 25 miles east of Tyler. The City is approximately 120 miles east of Dallas and 60 miles west of Shreveport, Louisiana on Interstate 20.  Kilgore has been identified by the Texas Legislature as the “City of Stars.” The stars that top the sixty oil derricks throughout the City are lighted during the holiday season. This feature is only one of several reason the Legislature bestowed the title.  Kilgore has a small town atmosphere, yet it is close enough to enjoy the benefits of larger cities. Kilgore is surrounded by a number of quality lakes, including Lake Cherokee and Lake O' the Pines, making it a boater's and fisherman's paradise.
