510 acres
  Water clarity: 1 to 4 feet and chalky brown to green colored
  Comments:This is a scenic and popular U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake. Camping facilities are exceptional. Public access is nearly 100 percent, and there are ample fishing opportunities from the bank or boat. The lake is known its largemouth bass fishing, but populations of flathead catfish and sunfish should not be underestimated. There are fish-cleaning stations, a swimming beach, group camping and several boat ramps. All boat ramps require a fee except the boat ramp south of the dam. Fees are also required for camping. All the major coves have speed limit restrictions so anglers can better enjoy sportfishing. This is perhaps the most pleasant area lake for the whole family to enjoy. Florida largemouth bass wer introduced in 1986.
