It seems our travels, throughout Florida, have us spending time at Lake Louisa State Park and this year is no exception. A week ago we stayed seven days at Lake Louisa State Park and enjoyed our visit very much. Here we are again, arriving today November 30th, for seven more days.
It is a quite park that offers activities for everyone – lakes for fishing and kayaking, trails for hiking and biking, and camping with horses for trail riding. The primitive horse camp is in addition to the campground.
Some of the hiking trails take you through old growth orange groves and the experience of walking though these groves is a treat. Visit the Lake Louisa State Park web-site for some historical information about the Orange Groves.
Or if you just want to relax all you have to do is walk out on one of the lake piers for some beautiful scenery or sit at the sandy shore of Lake Louisa and gaze out into the horizon.
The park also offers a photographer the opportunity to capture some beautiful sunsets as the sun sets over the lakes.
Lake Louisa State Park is located near lovely Clemont, Florida with its rolling hills and small town atmosphere. It is close to shopping, restaurants and even Disney if one is so inclined to drive the twenty miles.
We enjoy a favorite Asian restaurant located near by. Have been to World of Beer, a Florida original, for some unique beer tasting and have enjoyed other wonderful restaurants in the area. The shopping is convenience and plentiful.
However, our preference is not to be gone from the natural environment of Lake Louisa State Park for too long, but sometimes you just have to venture out and this area is a lovely place to drive around in for whatever you might need. The best of both worlds!
If you don’t have a RV or want to tent camp you may rent one of Lake Louisa’s cabins as seen in the photo below.
I haven’t forgotten to add a bird photo (did you think I forgot?) This beautiful Tri-colored Heron was searching through the reeds in Lake Louisa for food. I captured this photo as we started on a hike near the Lake.
This guy was hanging out near Lake Louisa. I don’t know its name, but it sure had a long tail.
Until next time….
