• Surface Area: 4,475 Acres
Lake Dora is one of the seven lakes of the Harris Chain of Lakes. Located in Lake County in central Florida, the lake covers 4,475 acres and is a favorite location for fishing and recreational boating. The Dora Canal connects Lake Dora to Lake Eustis to the north, and Lake Dora is connected to Lake Apopka to the south by way of Lake Beauclair and the Apopka-Beauclair Canal.

The cities of Tavares and Mount Dora occupy the northern and eastern shorelines of Lake Dora, with Mount Dora making a beautiful, picturesque setting nestled on the hills rising to the east. There are two public boat ramps for direct access to Lake Dora: one is located on the northern shore in Tavares and the other is located on the eastern shore in Mount Dora. Both are very nice ramps with plenty of parking for vehicles and boat trailers. The southwestern shore of Lake Dora consists of a wetland with the southeastern shore consisting of a narrow piece of land that separates Lake Dora from Lake Beauclair.

The cities of Tavares and Mount Dora hold several annual festivals that highlight interests from antique wooden boats to antique furniture. The festivals draw thousands of visitors to the area from throughout Florida and the southeastern United States.

Lake Dora is teeming with wildlife, including many types of fish, waterfowl, reptiles, and mammals. The Dora Canal is a popular area for bird-watching and is the main focus of guided tour boats that ply the waters of the area.
