Default Lake apopka

Lake Apopka is a beautiful lake which was abused for many decades but is now maki8ng a comeback. It will take time but eventually Lake Apopka will be restored to a acceptable state. If you have any doubt about the lake I challenge you to go and see it for yourself. The FL Wildlife Department operates parks such as Magnolia Park Ramp and many people use the Lake daily. There is no harm to people and actually Lake Apopka is alive with all types of wildlife set amidst a lost era of underdevelopment unseen in Central Florida. Butler Boat Rental 407-448-3427 operates tours in Mini Speed Boats which are very affordable and offer a unique Lake Apopka experience. [CENTER][/CENTER]

Most people who have posted all of the bad history on Lake Apopka are not only right but it was probably worst then what they are saying. Now with that off my chest let me put my optimistic hat on and say that if kymmyiam is right and they not only continue to clean up Lake Apopka then who knows = in 10-20 years it might of been a steal to buy it now? I would not take the chance personally but would be real jealous of anyone who does and it pays off.

So although the lake is currently still "polluted" significant agressive efforts are ongoing. Right now, there are areas around the lake that are suitable for eco-tourism and you can also fish on the lake. There's also a beautiful trail that winds in and around Orange County. Since the clean-up efforts have begun around the lake and a new freeway is connecting right near it, my father's property value has tripled and continues to climb. Now is a great time to buy property around Lake Apopka. In about 10-20 years when the lake is flourishing again property wil be incredibly more expensive.

I took a nice hike in the Lake Apopka restoration area. So beautiful.

I had never been there before and was shocked at how huge the lake is!

It's quite a birder's paradise.

Default Good idea. WG is the best area around the lake as well

Some people will say that the Lakers unpopular because of pollution, but I work for a company that is working to remove the Phosphorus contaminant from the lake constantly seven years from now that lake should be much cleaner, and all the land is gonna be worth a lot more. I’m personally trying to find out if I’m allowed to anchor a boat on the lake to live there seeing as I work on the lake I would be 30 seconds from my job.

Yes! I work for the former “Phosphorus free water solutions” now “Aquatica. I spend 14 hours a day half the days of the month out there on the lake, pumping the contaminated, Phosphorus mud off the bottom we are estimated to have this lake, clean, and a cool six years. I’ve been working out there a little over a year and the job is going great. We recently got a brand new Dredge that has increased production astoundingly.
