VISITOR INFORMATION

The City of Crescent City, a small and historic Florida city of around 1,600 residents, sits on the western shoreline of Crescent Lake and the eastern shoreline of Lake Stella. This "City Between the Lakes" offers two public boat ramps to access Crescent Lake and the only public ramp available to access Lake Stella. The freshwater fishing in both lakes is exceptional: bass fishing, crappie fishing, bream (aka shellcrackers) and catfish are in abundance. Crescent Lake's connection to the St. Johns River even brings in shrimp from August through November. Lake Stella has an excellent paddling trail and it also has a public swimming beach where you can spend the day enjoying this spring-fed lake.

If historic or rural Florida charm is what you are looking for, come enjoy the antique shops and locally owned restaurants. While you are here and take a self-guided walking tour of the historic homes that make up the City's historic district.

In addition to the City's historic charm and its direct access to Lake Stella and Crescent Lake for boating and fishing, there are several ecotourism opportunities in the Crescent City area, including paddling, biking, hiking and horseback riding is places like Dunn's Creek State Park , the Welaka State Forest and Lake George Conservation Area. You will not find better bird watching or wildlife viewing venues for inland Florida. In addition to the opportunities in the nearby state parks and forests, there are bald eagles nesting in the center of the City; sand hill cranes, wood ducks and even limpkins nest along Lake Stella and frequent our public parks; and wild turkeys and peacocks roam the streets of Crescent City.

We are a rural Florida destination, but there are overnight accommodations that include the historic Sprague House Bed and Breakfast, the Lakeview Motel, and Lake Crescent Resort. If you want to dine out, enjoy the waterfront atmosphere of 3 Bananas, the warm and friendly atmosphere of Belle's Bistro, as well as several other locally owned cafes and restaurants. If you are staying more than one day and need provisions, there is a Winn Dixie and a Save-A-Lot grocery that should be able to provision your expedition.
