Alligator Lake is one of the cleanest in Florida. It is feed by 5 Springs and is the only lake that has real sand on the bottom.
Alligator Lake is a fantastic destination for the entire family and offers amateur or professional anglers plenty of opportunities. The lakes produce record bass catches, and anglers can also fish for bluegill, black crappie and reader sunfish.
The Alligator Chain Of Lakes provides anglers with ample fishing opportunities as its five lakes interconnect. The chain is composed of Alligator Lake with 3,406 acres, Lake Lizzie with 792 acres, Coon Lake with 148 acres, Trout Lake with 273 acres and Lake Gentry with 410 acres. The chain also connects with the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes thus allowing anglers to experience the fishing opportunities that both chains offer.
A variety of amateur fishing competitions have been hosted on these lakes, including the popular Big Fish Open. The Big Fish Open is a recreational catch-and-release amateur tournament for children and adults held every fall as part of Kissimmee’s Great Outdoor Days.
In 2000, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducted a lake draw down and enhancement project on the Alligator Chain of Lakes, which improved aquatic habitats and stimulated growth of aquatic vegetation.
Often associated with its neighboring cities, Kissimmee and Orlando, St. Cloud is actually a compact, quiet city that offers other enjoyments for travelers.
Take a stroll through the historic St. Cloud Main Street area and take a step back in time. Spend a leisurely morning browsing through the unique storefronts along Tenth Street, and New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Florida avenues. Here you will find antiques, clocks, furniture, arts and crafts, and so much more.
