About Marco Lake
Charming Lake in Jacksonville

Marco Lake is a quaint body of water from the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. Next to restaurants, shops, hotels, and attractions, you will rarely have to travel far from home. The Baptist Medical Center or Jacksonville International Airport is located near Marco lake.

Glimmering Waters

Marco Lake is a picturesque view of many homes surrounding its shoreline. The lake is bordered with concrete seawalls giving it a modern, clean-cut aesthetic.

The lake was dug in the 1920s and often overlooked in the busy industrial area; by the 1940s, homes, and docks were built on the lake to make it a recreational area.

Residents enjoyed boating and fishing the serene waters, and they are still popular pastimes on the lake today. Bass, catfish, redfish, bullhead, and sunfish are commonly caught at Marco Lake.

River Access and More

The lake's outlet to the St. Johns River gives residents easy access to the vast stretch of "lazy" river water. With such a low flow-rate, a river is an excellent place to kayak, canoe, or fish.

A lovely evening out may include dining at a high-class riverside restaurant or taking a romantic sunset cruise.

The area has a great choice of golf courses from the San Jose Country Club, Hampton Golf, Deerwood Country Club, or Hyde Park Golf Club.

Have an adrenaline rush at the Autobahn Indoor Speedway or Adventure Landing Amusement and Waterpark.

A Fantastic Location

With access to the attractions in Jacksonville and recreation on the St. Johns River, Marco Lake's opportunities are phenomenal.
