Lake Jackson Aquatic Preserve

Leon County's Lake Jackson is one of the few remaining natural sinkhole lakes in Florida. The 4,000 plus acre freshwater lake is shallow, except for two large 30 foot sinkholes. When Florida's Panhandle area remains in a drought condition and groundwater levels begin to drop, lake water is funneled down through the sinkholes causing fluctuations in water levels within the lake. These extremes create conditions for rich wetland habitats and great wildlife diversity.
