This magnificent lake is approximately seven miles long and three miles wide with 21miles of shoreline surrounded by 29,000 acres of marshes, swamps and cypress forests. It’s a place of complete surrender to Mother Nature as blue skies give way to blue-hued water which some say occur because of the reflection of the Blue Cypress trees on the lake as the morning sun rises into the sky. The lake is also a top Osprey nesting site reporting over 200 nests along the shoreline. Kayaking and canoeing up close to see Osprey nests in the wild and to marvel at the 130-foot tall cypress trees make this worth a trip. But when you can also spot American Alligators, bald eagles, and fish including largemouth bass crappie, bluegill, catfish, chain pickerel and more; Blue Cypress Lake becomes an outdoor Shangri-La. Middleton’s Fish Camp is the only one of its kind on the lake and they are happy to provide eco-tours and fishing.
