Lake Eustis

Lake Eustis is located in Central Florida, west of the city of Eustis. It covers approximately 7,000 acres (28 kmĀ²). It is spring feed and is a member of the Harris Chain of Lakes, and is connected to Lake Harris by means of the Dead River. It is also connected to the St. Johns River via Haines Creek to Lake Griffin, and the Ocklawaha River. The St. Johns River continues north to Jacksonville and the Atlantic Ocean.

Other communities along the shores of Lake Eustis include Los Vegas to the north, Haines Creek to the northwest and Tavares on the southeastern shore.

Eustis Lake Walk built over and connected to the eastern shores of Lake Eustis affords sunset views and 20 boat slips and 4 gazebos amid shore front lake waters.

Sailing and fishing are some of the activities available at the lake.

For a historical look at Lake County waters, this was written in the 1930s:

amid the slopes and waters of beautiful Lake County, are Leesburg, Eustis, Tavares, and Mount Dora, all possessed of excellent tourist accommodations and such natural and man-made beauty, combined with all sorts of sport advantages, that the sport-loving visitor is thrilled.

Bass fishing surpasses anything you have ever known in that line. Citrus fruits and other products abound. Golf courses are found in every community. As an all-year resort section, this is hard to equal.

Famous quotes containing the word lake:

    They who know of no purer sources of truth, who have traced up its stream no higher, stand, and wisely stand, by the Bible and the Constitution, and drink at it there with reverence and humility; but they who behold where it comes trickling into this lake or that pool, gird up their loins once more, and continue their pilgrimage toward its fountain-head.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
