Lake County Florida contains more than a thousand lakes including the
vast Harris Chain with over 50,000 acres of water. The
majority of the larger lakes are open to the public year-round
and well maintained boat ramps are plentiful.
Largemouth bass, our most popular freshwater game fish, are
plentiful and regularly grow past the 10 pound mark. Speckled
perch (crappie), blue gills, and sunfish are very popular with
anglers who are hoping for a fish dinner at the end of a day
on the water. For more information on Lake County's great
the Chain is a popular pastime with great waterfront
restaurants and sightseeing attractions such as the Dead River
and the Dora Canal. The Cities of Eustis and Tavares are
especially popular with boaters who dock free along the
waterfront and walk across the street to restaurants and the
downtown area shopping.
Lake Eustis hosts numerous sailing regattas as well as popular
power boat racing events. The Antique Boat Show in the Spring
draws thousands of visitors to Mount Dora and Tavares each
year. Lake Dora is the home of many antique boat owners, who
can be seen each weekend cruising the Chain of Lakes in their
meticulously restored wooden boats.
Forth of July festivities include fireworks over the Lakes.
Boaters have a front-row seat at this popular event. From the
center of Lake Eustis it is possible to view the fireworks of
Mount Dora, Tavares, Eustis, Clermont, Leesburg and Lake Lake,
all at the same time!
The Clermont Chain, located in Southern Lake County, is also
popular with the cruising crowd. The clear waters are
popular with the water and jet skiers. On the Clermont Chain
there is Lake Louisa Park, a 4300 acre state park where you
can find swimming, canoeing, fishing, horse trails, and
The Saint Johns River boarders the county on the East. If
you're so inclined, here you can boat all the way to
Jacksonville where the river flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
This website also contains a powerful search feature that
provides direct access to the State of Florida Multiple
Listing System (MLS). This is the same database that Realtors
use to find property for their clients. We know how
frustrating it can be to call on an advertised property and
find that it has already been sold. Our listings are
automatically updated as soon as a new property comes on the
market and removed as soon as it expires or becomes pending.
We hope you enjoy your visit and will not hesitate to contact
