Exploring the Palm Island boardwalk is a definite must do. Apply bug spray liberally and keep your eyes out for alligators, snakes, flowers, birds, turtles and spiders. Birds and ducks too!

great Lake that is nestled on the back side of the Harris Chain of lakes. Good boat ramp in Mt Dora. Good fishing, open water and access to the smaller lakes - Beau Claire and Charlton. Great place to take a leisurely cruise.

Beautiful little town, lots to do, see and enjoy. Great eats, beautiful walking and a adventurous boat road to see the gators and wild life up close!

We went two nights in a row to watch the sunset. So so pretty. It's a very big Lake which surprised me. Several young alligators, birds, Moss covered trees.
