Hike Lake Louisa State Park

Let's walk off all that Thanksgiving food!

From the Florida State Parks website: A short drive from Orlando, this park is noted for its six beautiful lakes, rolling hills, and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa is the largest in a chain of 13 lakes connected by the Palatlakaha River, which is designated as an Outstanding Florida Waterway. Lake Louisa, Dixie Lake, and Hammond Lake, the park's most accessible lakes, provide access for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Anglers can fish in four of the park's six lakes, but gasoline-powered boats are not allowed; only boats powered by trolling motors or without motors are permitted. Camping facilities and more than 15 miles of horse trails are available for equestrians. For hikers and backpackers, the park has over 20 miles of hiking trails with excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing. Dixie Lake has a fishing pier, canoe/kayak launch, and a picnic pavilion.The park also has a full-facility campground, fully furnished cabins for rent, and primitive campsites. Lake Louisa State Park is located just seven miles south of State Road 50 in Clermont on U.S. 27.


Meet at the parking lot for the beach (ask at the ranger station on the way in if you are not familiar with the park). 

Dogs are welcome, leashes must be 6 feet or shorter, and all pet waste must be removed. 

Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and bugspray!

    Very nice day! Bit of a drive for me, but I tend to go for things I want and I wanted to go. A little suprised about the turn-out. I thought there would be more of a crowd. Had an great time with the folks that were there. Felt a bit easier to get to know the PARTICIPATERS.... Haha in a more personable way and we made the best of it. Nice to have been outdoors and many thanks to you guys for being there with me.
