Blue Cypress Lake

One of most pristine portions of the river, almost entirely surrounded by protected wetlands, this 6500 acre lake gets its name from a unique optical illusion, in which the morning sun’s rays, reflecting of the surface of the water, cause the cypress trees surrounding the lake to appear a bluish color. Blue Cypress Lake is located in Fellsmere, Florida, just north of the St Johns Marsh, the headwaters of the St Johns.
