Area Lakes


Lake Placid has 27 named lakes. Lake Istokpoga - the area's largest lake - runs along the east side of Lake Placid and Sebring. Some of the lakes are very clear with firm sand bottoms (good for in-water sports like skiing/swimming/tubing), while some are shallow and tannic (brown water not good for in-water sports but nice view, good boating/fishing, etc). Typically, the deeper the lake the more clear. Grassy, Mccoy and a few others are also fed by some springs.

The following table gives some information on many of the named lakes - 10 acres or larger:
