The Gillis Pond real estate market is a beautiful, but lesser known, marketplace for lake property in Florida.
Tucked away in Putnam County, Florida is the peaceful Gillis Pond. This pond is a quiet getaway that has been kept a secret by locals. Strong conservation efforts have kept Gillis Pond’s natural habitats mostly intact.
With plenty of public access at Gillis Pond, swimming, boating, canoeing, and kayaking are available year-round.
The fishing is excellent whether anglers choose to stand on the shoreline or to launch their boat. Fishermen have reported catching crappie, brown trout, and blue catfish in Gillis Pond. There is even more opportunity for fishing at nearby Caravelle Ranch Conservation Area. Fishing for largemouth bass, white catfish, brown bullheads, and yellow bullheads is outstanding along the part of the St. Johns River that flows through the management area.
In addition to fishing, hunting for doves, deer, feral hogs, quail, turkey, and squirrel is permitted in Caravelle Ranch Conservation Area.
With over 20 miles of hiking trails in the Caravelle Ranch Conservation Area, you can never run out of outdoor activities to try.
Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or find a vacation rental, Gillis Pond is an excellent choice.
