Lake Jesup is one of the largest lakes in Central Florida and is located in Seminole County. The St. John's River makes it's end at the 16,000 acre lake. One of the longest free-standing bridges crosses over Lake Jesup and is part of the Seminole Expressway,

In the 1960s the lake was found to be severely polluted. There was considerable algal growth, numerous fish deaths, and a thick layer of muck that was more than 9 feet deep in some areas. Fortunately, plans to rehabilitate the lake started in the 1990s. The Friends of Lake Jesup and the St. Johns River Water Management District teamed up with the Florida Department of Transportation and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to accomplish the restoration of the lake. Since then, the lake has slowly, but surely started to recover and has come a long way.

The lake is home to a wide variety of species and is considered to support one of the state's densest populations of alligators Osprey and eagles also make their home around the lake.
