Blue Cypress - Yellow Light
Blue Cypress Lake
The cypress trees in the shallows of Blue Cypress Lake are silhouetted by the yellow cast of early morning light.
Blue Cypress Lake is in the remote western portion of Indian River County. This lake and the surrounding wetlands form the headwaters of the St. Johns River.
Bald cypress trees grow near the shore and into the lake providing a wonderful place to canoe or kayak. These trees provide excellent nesting sites for osprey, which are present in great numbers.
Blue Cypress Lake is also a very popular fishing spot. The only access to the lake is at the fish camp and small county park that does allow camping along a strip of grass between the driveway and the lake. There is no charge for camping, simply register at the fish camp.
