Many people move to our area because of the quality and quantity of lakes. People paddle, fish, ski, swim and explore virtually all the many area waterways.
NOTE: We had a significant drought for several years, but it's OVER! That said, we saw which areas on lakes and canals that suffered most during the drought. Some docks & boathouses were in inches of water so we'll keep that in mind when showing waterfront homes. After all, there could be another drought at some point.

Area Boating & Fishing
The lakes are the undisputed number one attraction in Highlands County.
There are several public fishing areas in the parks around the lakes. Bishop park is on Lake June Rd. and has great picnic facilities, boat ramps and a good dock and fishing pier. Lake June Ball Fields is a huge park off Deen Blvd. "behind" downtown Lake Placid. There are boat ramps, a swimming beach and a fishing pier. These are just a couple of the many parks found around our lakes. Some, however, such as Placid Lakes Park, are only for residents. Lake Jackson in Sebring has public ramps, as well as Lake Clay and most others - see any road map for a wide variety (and we suggest trying several lakes!).
Check out our Lake Chart, which provides more information on most area lakes.
