About Lake Chipco
Putnam County, Florida

Lake Chipco is a quaint public 41-acre lake in Interlachen, Florida surrounded by numerous lake homes. Gainesville is under 35 miles away, and Jacksonville is under 80 miles away.

The lake is 16 minutes from Putnam Community Medical Center, 45 minutes from Gainesville Regional Airport, and an hour from Ocala International Airport. There is a Hitchcok’s Market within five minutes.

Hungry Lake Chipco residents can venture to Nanna’s Country Cafe, which is right next to the water. Nanna’s is a highly rated breakfast, soul food, and classic American cuisine.

Fishing Opportunities

Anglers on the lake can enjoy reeling in largemouth bass. If that doesn’t suit your tastes, the Atlantic Ocean is an hour away.

Dedicated anglers can travel to Butler Beach and embark on a saltwater fishing adventure.

The St. John’s River, also nearby, is riddled with largemouth bass as well, but also crappie, bluegill, shellcrackers, and catfish.

Beach Day

Fishing is not the only thing you can do at Butler Beach. Take the family for a beach day and enjoy the beach’s public parking, barbecue grills, and picnic pavilions.

Fun in Gainesville

Gainesville features attractions like the Florida Museum of Natural History, Butterfly Rainforest, Ichetucknee Springs State Park, and the Gainesville Raceway.

Some of the city’s most anticipated events include the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire, Hogtown Craft Beer Festival, Jest Fest, Butterfly Fest, and the Downtown Festival and Art Show.
