Lake Santa Fe is a fantastic place for a day trip getaway from Gainesville!
Santa Fe Lake, also known as Lake Santa Fe, is a sparkling 5,850-acre expanse that lies in northeastern Alachua County, Florida. Actually divided into two lakes — Santa Fe Lake and Little Santa Fe Lake — this watery playground is connected and easily navigable by boat. The lake is spring-fed and feeds into the Santa Fe River, which eventually empties into the Suwannee River. One of the larger Florida lakes, Santa Fe Lake is a popular vacation destination.

Bring a canoe, a paddle board, a kayak, motor boat, or fishing boat (and sunscreen!), and you will be thoroughly entertained on this beautiful lake.
