You are on a page dedicated to Florida Lakes.
Florida has more lakes than any other state in the United States and they represent one of its most important natural resources.
The University of South Florida's Water Institute, the University of Florida's LAKEWATCH program, and the Florida Lake Management Society are dedicated to protecting these critical resources through citizen education and support for citizen volunteer programs.
The Florida Atlas of Lakes (FAOL) is an edition of the Water Atlas, a suite of websites produced by the University of South Florida Water Institute. The goal of the Florida Atlas of Lakes is to provide a statewide lake information site for lake property owners, Florida LAKEWATCH volunteers, scientists, and other persons interested in Florida lakes.
Swamp Lake is found within Hillsborough County - a Water Atlas sponsored area.
