• Surface Area: 16,505 Acres
Located in northwest Lake County, the 9,400-acre Lake Griffin is one of nine lakes that make up the Harris Chain of Lakes — Apopka, Beauclair, Carlton, Dora, Eustis, Yale, Little Lake Harris and Harris. These lakes all drain into Lake Griffin, then into the Ocklawaha River and into the St. Johns River. Lake Griffin is fed by rainfall and water flowing from the upstream lakes through a dam on Haynes Creek. A dam on the Ocklawaha River downstream of Lake Griffin controls water levels in Lake Griffin.

There is heavy commercial development along the southern shore with plenty of private residences intermingled along the shorelines. The Lake Griffin State Park is located in the southwestern portion of the lake and can be accessed by boat. Wetlands and the Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area dominate the northeastern shore. Wildlife and waterfowl are abundant in the area and can be seen year-round. The lake is a popular fishing and boating destination. Haynes Creek flows into Lake Griffin in the northeastern part of the lake and the Ocklawaha River starts her journey to the St. Johns River at the north end of the lake.

Until the early 2000's, Lake Griffin was considered one of Florida’s most polluted lakes. Read about the work being done to restore it and Florida's entire Harris Chain of Lakes.



There is a very nice public boat ramp in a county park on the southern shore of the lake. The park even contains an old steam locomotive for train enthusiasts.

The city of Leesburg is located at the south end of the lake and there is a major intersection of several state highways in the area.
