Below are just some of the Lakes in Winter Garden FL. The Winter Garden FL Lakes we are covering are spread throughout the 34787 zipcode and the most obvious. There are some smaller named ponds and unnamed ponds which we shall not cover here. Exploring the Orange County Water Atlas can open your horizons even further.
I live on a lake and it is a real privilege. It can be compared to overlooking a beautiful mountain range or the ocean of your choice. There is a reason so many people choose lakefront life. Where are the best lakes to enjoy this in Central FL? Well, unless you want to spend a whole lot more to live on the Butler Chain of Lakes (up to 10’s of millions) here are the best choices among the Lakes in Winter Garden FL.
Apopka is the largest lake in Winter Garden FL. The lake is also the most famous and probably the first named lake. This lake is expected to break the record weight someday soon for largemouth bass.
Johns Lake is another larger than average lake in the city. There is a public boat ramp on the northwestern side of the lake. This lake is amazingly clear and lined with some of the finest homes and communities in the city. Deer island and Turkey island are found in this lake.
Lake Hickorynut is in Horizon West aka the southern portion of the 34787 zip-code. This lake is medium sized and private. There are no boat launches at all currently. One must be creative or know a home owner.
Lake Hancock is also a Horizon West FL lake. Part of this lake is so close to Disney that you cannot fly an aerial drone. There is a boat launch but it is private for residents of the local area. The lake is medium sized but surprisingly clean and clear.
Black Lake is located within the central part of Winter Garden. It is connected to Lake Tilden and Johns Lake. It has a boat launch but you cannot reach Johns Lake from it because it passes under a road to get to Johns Lake. You can boat to and from Lake Tilden which is smaller.
Lake Speer is in the south part of Winter Garden FL and I used to live on the western shoreline of this lake. It is large enough to land small planes on or do any type of water sport. The boat launch is for residents who live locally and is chained off.
Panther Lake is small but has some incredible homes and golf courses beside it. You could easily refer to this lake as a pond but it is very attractive and suitable for paddle or oaring type boats.
Avalon Lake is beautiful and I had a hard time ranking it. It has two portions which are connected and is suitable for boating. Some newer homes are on its northern shore but the south shore has homes with acreage. A couple are stunning and suitable for any lucky individuals.
Tilden Lake is a small out of the way lake. It is a short drive from this lake to the Winter Garden Village or a short boat ride to Black Lake. There is only a private boat launch here.
Lake Beulah is best known by the community home owners who surround it. It is just northeast of the Winter Garden Village but well worth considering. This lake sees little use and its condition and beauty attest to its lack of use. A great choice to live on or next to.
The ranking is just the opinion of the writer who has long lived here. I love boating, fishing and beautiful homes. You should strongly consider fishing the lakes here or getting out to enjoy them. The bird watchers prefer Lake Apopka which has the pier on its eastern side. Thank you for visiting this site to learn more about the Lakes in Winter Garden FL.
