Lake Louisa State Park
Located 30 minutes west of Walt Disney World, Lake Louisa is an easy getaway from the theme-park overdrive. There are several peaceful lakes, lovely beaches and 25 miles of hiking trails through fields, woods and orange groves. The park is noted for its beautiful lakes, rolling hills and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa, the largest in a chain of 13 lakes, is designated an Outstanding Florida Water Way. Lake Louisa, Lake Hammond and Lake Dixie, the park’s most accessible lakes, provide opportunities for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. You can rent three-person canoes and single-rider kayaks at the ranger station.
