Lake Deaton, in Wildwood FL, is surrounded by natural beauty and provides relaxation with the convenience of being close to both the east and west coasts, as well as the Orlando and Tampa area attractions.
This 4,460-acre lake and Fish Management Area is unusual; a true spring-fed lake, water depths seldom exceed four feet. I-75 runs along the eastern edge and C.R. 470 along the southern and western shore. A public ramp is available on the Outlet River, west of the lake on C.R. 470.
Lake Panasoffkee WMA lies along the eastern shore of Lake Panasoffkee, in north central Sumter County. This nearly 9,000-acre area was acquired between 1990 and 1997 to preserve the lake and its associated floodplain forests. Four spring-fed creeks enter the lake.
