Clermont is the "Gem of the Hills" in beautiful Lake County Florida. The rolling hills of Clermont on the central ridge of Florida provide a magnificent vantage point for enjoying the view of the numerous lakes.
The focal point of the South Lake County area is the fantastic Clermont Chain of Lakes—13 lakes connected by canals and rivers. The Clermont Chain of lakes is designated Outstanding Florida Waterways. They are excellent for fishing, boating, and water skiing.
The largest of the Clermont Chain of Lakes, peaceful Lake Louisa, has little boat traffic since almost 1/2 of the shoreline is protected by the Lake Louisa State Park. The shoreline is rimmed with beautiful cypress trees, whose needles turn red around Christmas time.
These two lakes are connected by a small canal. The Sawmill Lakes is spring-fed, so the water level does not fluctuate as much as other lakes. Big Sawmill Lake, with a ski jump and slalom course, is a favorite among water skiers.
There are many more individual lakes throughout the region, enough for every taste.
