What We Saw

Fox Lake is a popular fishing and recreation spot for locals.

It's a place to see alligators and wildlife located conveniently close to Titusville, the Cape Canaveral area and the Mosquito Lagoon to the east.

Fox Lake connects to the much larger, more open South Lake via the channel shown at the northern part of the enhanced aerial photo at left.

For paddlers, the marshy nature of the lake offers numerous channels and creeks to explore.

Fishing is good, but be sure to have a fresh water fishing license. As in all areas of Florida with alligators, remember that fish on a line in the water can attract alligators. And of course, never feed alligators nor go swimming in waters with alligators. DUH!

Launching at the ramp stub shown in the aerial photo protruding from the southwest corner of the open area of the lake bordering the park, paddlers may go in either direction.

To the northwest is a channel.

To the east of the launch ramp, the lake becomes marsh with areas of grasses pictured at right and numerous channels to explore.

Motor boats are allowed on the lake, so for safety, make sure they see you paddling in the tall grasses.
