Crescent Lake Preserve, one of the most unique properties in the State, maintains a natural unspoiled beauty reminding you of old world Florida. Situated between State Road 100 and Water Oak Road, CR #2005, this unique property has over eleven miles of unspoiled shoreline on Crescent Lake and Dead Lake. Upon entering the property and crossing Water Oak Creek, thoughts of development potential start entering your mind. As much as you may not like the word, development, you can’t help seeing the potential. Driving down the well- maintained interior roads you begin to see small ponds filled with fresh water marsh fennels and lined with old growth trees. You will pass by the Observation Tower, a Florida Fire Tower; purchased from the state and used by the landowner to overlook the property, lake and miles of surrounding terrain. Next while crossing some of the prettiest fresh water marsh you have ever seen you notice them lined with live oaks, palms, huge native pine trees, and a marsh teaming with all types of aquatic fowl and beautiful native flowering vegetation. By the time you reach the lake you are already convinced that this is a true Florida treasure, and with one glance of the lake your thoughts become complete. Crescent Lake, just shy of 16,000 acres and with its average depth of 11 feet, hosts some of the best fishing in Florida in addition to other water sport activities. Most of the shoreline remains unspoiled and lined with huge cypress, palms, and other indigenous trees. Numerous creeks and springs feed the lake from the south. The lake then flows north and exits through Dunn’s Creek. Dunn’s Creek, deep enough to handle large pleasure boats, flows into the St. Johns River and from there north to Jacksonville and the Atlantic Ocean.
