Lakes in Florida

Florida is known as the Sunshine State. But it could also be called the Lake State. Whether you're into fishing or just love to spend time on clear blue water, you'll find plenty of temptingly tropical locales in Florida.

Love bass fishing? Then southern Florida is a prime vacation location for you, boasting over a dozen bass fishing lakes, including Lake Kissimmee and Lake Okeechobee. Want to test your fly fishing skills? Visit Palm Beach County's Lake Worth Lagoon system, which contains barracuda, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon and grey ghosts. Of course, Florida's lakes aren't limited to the south. In northern Florida, for instance, there's Kingsley Lake, offering clean, clear water as well as a wide variety of recreational activities, including swimming, fishing and water skiing. And in central Florida, there's the Chain of Lakes in Winter Haven, which has hiking trails that wind through gorgeous parkland complete with over 15 lakes.
